Ambitious, talented, and beautiful, Ebony Obsidian is every sistas’ sista. Initially a writer, Ebony suddenly fell into acting and decided, “This is something I want to do very well.”

She ended up studying acting at the William Esper Studio, which trained the likes of Tracee Ellis Ross and Regina Hall. She credits Esper as being very instrumental in her career. “It was there where I learned discipline, structure, and how to be egoless,” she said. “I needed that in order to be a freer actor in a constructive meaningful way.”

Since then, she has gone on to co-star in the critically acclaimed If Beale Street Could Talk as Adrienne, become a regular on Wu-Tang: An American Saga as Nia, and acts in Tyler Perry’s Sistas, playing the career-driven Karen Mott.
