KW: I’ve been working at this for a long time. There’s no real knowing in this business. The best thing to do is to stick with it and keep pursuing your dreams and do the best you can. I’ve worked very hard in the last few years and have been focused in a different way and I believe now, I was ready for this opportunity. Before I wasn’t emotionally mature as I needed to be. There’s a molding and growth that’s taking place during the journey, one that’s necessary to receive what you’re seeking and a lot of artist have to realize that.

The CW is where great soapy teen dramas are born, and the network’s new show All American is no different. A teen football star finds himself suddenly plucked from his life in South Central LA to live with his coach’s family in Beverly Hills. The story obviously centers on the kid, but I couldn’t help asking myself, what about his poor mother? So I went right to the source. Karimah Westbrook, who plays the young lead’s mom in the show, spoke to Romper about a teen drama from the perspective of Mom. Westbrook spoke to why her character would let her son live with another family for five days out of the week, and how she got in touch with her character in such a difficult situation.

While we all have different desires, we all have in common the perception that by having or experiencing what we want, we will feel good or better. Sometimes, this makes us conditioned to wait for things or people to make us feel happy. What if the formula works completely opposite?! At least, by allowing ourselves to have faith and enjoy our journey, we will have the possibility to be in control or how we feel.

Q: How would you describe the racial climate today? We are doing great things and doors are opening but at the same time, racism is becoming more “in your face” again.

A: Racism is as sad today as it was when our ancestors experienced it. I still believe it’s a spirit of some kind, living throughout the generations and beliefs taught in the households. Today technology can capture racist acts on video so it feels like it’s more in our faces but racism has never not existed.
