A Biography On Tracee Ellis Ross


“Ross is staking out terrain as a funny babe with tons of style and a goofy, cross-cultural, new-age wisdom all her own. She traffics in an extravagance of the emotional kind, carried on the back of a raw energy and a generosity of spirit. Its hard not to get swept away and probably best if one does.”
