Karry Washington stands against sexual harassment in new movie

Kerry Washington takes on a role of another
strong woman, and this time it's a real-life
character, in HBO's film " Confirmation". Her
portrayal of Oklahoma law professor Anita Hill,
who accused Supreme Court Justice Clarence
Thomas of sexual harassment in 1991, is now
previewed in a first trailer for the TV movie.
The trailer captures her strong determination to
bring up the truth amid intense media scrutiny
and lies made up by the opposing party. "I could
not keep silent," Washington's Hill says during a
testimony. "I was not dishonest."
Hill's shocking confession that she was a victim
of Thomas' sexual harassment brought the
country to a standstill and forever changed the
way we think about sexual harassment, victims'
rights and modern race relations.
Wendell Pierce plays Clarence Thomas, with Greg
Kinnear, Jennifer Hudson , Jeffrey Wright , Eric
Stonestreet and more taking other roles. Written
by Susannah Grant and directed by Rick
Famuyiwa, the drama pic will premiere Saturday,
April 16 at 8 P.M. on HBO.
