“I’m really considering getting up out of here, leaving and living in another country,” Henson said. “That’s something that comes with 50, you get tired of fighting. I’m tired.”

Henson stated the “pressures of being Black” have brought an extra level of fatigure to her. “I just don’t want to have to do another hashtag… I fought, I changed, I marched. I’m tired.”


She added, “I want to go where there’s neutral ground. I want to just be. And be happy. I want to be called ‘Bella’ every day, drink wine and swat flies on the porch. Stress-free.”
