Actress Gabrielle Union’s resume just keeps getting longer: she’s had roles on television and in movies, serves as an executive producer of BET’s Being Mary Jane, is a serial entrepreneur and activist, and is now the author of a new book of essays entitled We’re Going to Need More Wine.
When rape allegations against Union’s co-star Nate Parker surfaced a month before the release of the film The Birth of a Nation, Union made headlines when she spoke out about her own experience being raped as a young woman and she urged compassion for other survivors of sexual assault. Today, Union is an important and powerful voice for rape survivors and she advocates against sexual violence, while also juggling her work in Hollywood, her many business endeavors, and life with her family.
In her debut book, We’re Going to Need More Wine, Union shares stories and essays on race, gender, feminism, sexuality, fame, marriage, beauty and more, all with the trademark honesty and humor her fans have loved for years. Join Gabrielle Union and INFORUM and get real over a glass of wine.
