As an actress, Long appears in no less than four classics in the African American film pantheon: Boyz n the Hood, Love Jones, Friday and The Best Man (five, if you count television’s The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air). She has, in fact, been an integral part of our most beloved visual legacies.

Long has grown up with us and has transitioned from a Gen X hip-hop honey into a mother, wife and regularly working actress. As she navigates her 40s, she has managed to carve out an enduring representation of black womanhood through her impressive body of work.

“I’m a woman over 40, so thank God I’m working,” says Long, 45. “I’m not trying to be an ingénue anymore. I wouldn’t want those opportunities because then that would just mean that I haven’t grown.”

In April, Long returns to the big screen in Kegan Michael Key and Jordan Peele’s cinematic debut, Keanu. She also co-stars alongside Mike Epps in ABC’s half-hour comedy vehicle, Uncle Buck, slated to premiere in June.

“I think the whole point as an artist is that you want your work, in some sort of way, to reflect how you’ve evolved as a person and as a woman. The more you work, the smarter you are,” she reflects.”
