Sonya Eskridge is a writer from Maryland, who started her news career in radio at the age of 17. After graduating from Virginia Tech, she went on to write for a national publication where she was able to mold her personal voice. Always looking for ways to inform on important issues—or share her love of nerdy and girly things—Sonya thoroughly enjoys writing about a wide range of subjects.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, she’ll portray Anita Hill in “Confirmation.” The film will center on Clarence Thomas’ 1991 Supreme Court nomination hearing, which stemmed from Anita allegations that he’d sexually harassed her when they worked together.
It’s not clear whether the story will be told from Anita’s perspective, but Susannah Grant has signed on to write the script.
In other Kerry news, she is gracing the cover of Marie Claire this month and can’t say enough great things about the feature article about her inside the book. She posted a peek at the issue on her Instagram page as she gushed about the profile’s author Lena Dunham.
