I interviewed the amazingly talented Tichina Arnold at the Icon Mann Power 30 Pre-Oscar Dinner. We talked about her beautiful daughter, Alijah, the huge impact of "Martin" and being a lupus advocate. Tichina's sister, Zenay Arnold, was diagnosed with lupus eight years ago, along with rheumatoid arthritis, Sjogren’s Syndrome, Mixed Connective Tissue Disorder (MCTD), and Raynaud’s disease. She was told there was no cure and that these diseases could lead to her demise. Lupus is three times more common in black women than in white women and Tichina was adamant about women becoming aware. Learn more at www.lupus.org and watch my interview with Tichina Arnold below.
