We Can Do Hard Things
We Can Do Hard Things
Kerry Washington shares the deeply personal story of what happened when her parents finally told her the truth about a long-held and shocking family secret:

How uncovering the truth – as painful as it was – led Kerry to reclaim her self trust; 

How the revelation made her the lead character of her own life for the first time;

Walking the line between protection and deception;

Breaking the cycle of gaslighting within families; and 

How defying her father freed both of them.
