Zendaya is stunning on the new cover of Essence. In the interview, which took place a week after her Emmy win, she talks about accepting the award at home surrounded by her family (“I was worried that if they kept screaming for too long, I wouldn’t have any time to actually say anything —but I didn’t want to stop them, because they were having a great time. It was a very special night”), and her hopes for Black women (“For us to continue to fully realize our power and harness it to do great things, because we are incredibly powerful. We’re often convinced that we’re not and taught to shrink —but we have to believe in our collective power. I always think of that Beyoncé song, “They’ll never take my power, my power, my power.” Let’s take that energy into the new year”).
