In Her Shoes: Sanaa Lathan

In this episode of In Her Shoes, The Cut's Editor-in-Chief Lindsay Peoples Wagner sat down with actor and director Sanaa Lathan.

Born and bred in New York City, Sanaa started out as a teen guest-starring on sitcoms like Family Matters and Moesha, before becoming a staple in rom-coms like Love And Basketball, The Best Man, and Brown Sugar. She also has appeared in blockbusters like Blade and Alien Vs. Predator, where, as she’s pointed out before, she is one of the only Black women to save the world in a movie.

The pair spoke about embracing natural hair, Sanaa's directorial debut, and how much she loves transcendental meditation.
