Rosario Dawson: ‘I Was Walking in Marches…Back When Al Sharpton Still Wore Sweatsuits!


Politically active actress and Voto Latino founder Rosario Dawson shares her desire to help others in a special series for Newsweek.

“I really want to be doing meaningful things. I think that comes with being 29. That’s a natural progression,” Dawson writes in the weekly magazine. “I was walking in marches with my mom when I was 10, back when Al Sharpton still wore sweatsuits.”

The Eagle Eye star, who grew up in a New York City “squat,” adds, “It took a long time for me to realize how to commit that celebrity value to something that I really believed in. I don’t want to just be the spokesperson for something; I want to be affected by it as well.”
