Power Women Summit: “They were going to be perceived by many as black men that will have to fight twice as hard to prove their worth,” star of “Guardians of the Galaxy” says
Actress Zoe Saldana said she first got involved in social activism after she looked at her newborn twin sons and felt a twinge of fear.
“I felt really happy that I’m going to get to see my reflection for the rest of our lives,” Saldana told the audience at TheWrap’s Power Women Summit in Downtown Los Angeles Friday. “The second feeling was fear because they were going to be perceived by many as black men that will have to fight twice as hard to prove their worth.”
“I felt just so ashamed that I had that fear, but also I felt that I needed to do something,” she added.
