    “I think there are now conversations that can be had—and I’m just speaking specifically about Central Park—that can be had about Molly that can involve me, and what it was like for me as a biracial teenager growing up. It broadens the ability to tell stories. Now having a biracial woman voicing a biracial character, we can actually have her talk about the struggles of finding the right hair product when you’re half white and half Black.”
