Black-ish Cast Honored

 

During the June 2 Step Up Inspiration Awards at the Beverly Hilton, which honored the cast of ABC’s “black-ish,” we asked several guests about their inspiration. Moms, take note: You received the lion’s (or, more appropriately the lioness’) share of shout-outs, and those who didn’t cite mom kept the credit in the family.

When asked about her inspiration, singer and actress Lea Michele answered: “My mom — always. She’s the best. She keeps me grounded.”
