Hollywood leading lady Kerry Washington is the face of the first ARISE magazine in 2013.
In an exclusive interview, the star of Quentin Tarantino’s slavery-era drama Django Unchained reveals the emotional experience of filming Django, how she got the Ugandan accent down for The Last King Of Scotland and what it was like to get a second series of Scandal and retain her title as the only African-American female in a lead TV role.
Someone else shaking up the status quo is the outspoken editor of Vogue Italia, Franca Sozzani. In a fascinating and candid interview with ARISE she defends L’Uomo Vogue’s contentious Rebranding Africa issue, explains why Lagos needs a Rodeo Drive and answers that much-debated question: Will there ever be an Vogue Africa?
More features from the magazine include news about Kofi Annan, M.I.A, Nnamdi Asomugha, Talib Kweli and more.
