Washington will star in and executive produced the upcoming HBO biopic, Confirmation. She plays Anita Hall. The film will air on the cable network HBO on April 16, 2016.
“In 1991, Anita Hill, a 35-year-old law professor at the University of Oklahoma, appeared at the confirmation hearing of Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas. At the time, Kerry Washington was just 14 years old. But like everyone else, Washington was transfixed by the two days that followed, in which Hill calmly recounted in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee the sexual harassment she claimed to have experienced while working for Thomas a decade prior at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.”
In the April issue of ELLE, Washington talks about everything from how she’s handling motherhood to why she feels it’s important to create work for herself instead of putting her artistic destiny in someone else’s hands to the reason Anita Hill’s story matters today.
