“I want to thank Jeff Friday and everyone at ABFF for the honor of serving as your 2015 Ambassador. It is a privilege to join my fellow filmmakers to celebrate and support Black artists and the artistry that resides in all of us,” Taraji said.
“I have a great deal of admiration and respect for Taraji. She is one of the industry’s finest actors and has a true sense of community; allowing others to stand in her light. We are extremely pleased to have her as our 2015 Ambassador,” ABFF Founder Jeff Friday added.
ABFF will take place June 11-14 at the New York Hilton, AMC Empire 25 and the historic Ziegfeld Theater.
