Kerry Washington is looking to be the Rihanna of TV stars the way she’s scoring magazine covers lately! After gracing InStyle (we know the cover was questionable) and Marie Claire‘s current issue, she’s now covering Ebony too!

Rocking a dark brown, sleek bob and turquoise eye liner, the headline for the Scandal star is “Kerry Washington: Her Truth In Black & White.” Inside, she unleashes a bit more of her “fun side” according to editors (we finally get to hear a little tidbit about her husband and baby girl)! She still kept it forthright on where she stands in wholeheartedly supporting women’s rights and #BlackLivesMatter.

She recalled the day of Michael Brown’s funeral, which had been televised. It affected her deeply and the actress/activist even spoke on about it on the Primetime Emmy Awards red carpet:

“I was really broken that morning. Watching that funeral, I was just broken. And I take all of who I am into a room. That’s where my mind was that day. I’m not going to let anyone segment me or make me exclude parts of who I am because they may be threatening.”

Pick up your copy with Washington on the cover on March 20! We wonder how many more covers we’re going to see this beauty on!?
