Yara Shahidi and Essence of Family

No upbringing could have better prepared Yara to play Zoey Johnson, the clothes-loving, tech-savvy daughter of a black father (Anthony Anderson) and biracial mother (Tracee Ellis Ross). “I’m lucky to have landed Black-ish,” she says, “because I’m quite literally blackish.” Next up: a reported Zoey spin-off. Yara, who is debating new frontiers herself—equipped with a letter of recommendation from Michelle Obama, no less—is prepared. “Now that I’m getting ready to go to college, the questions are: What do you want to be? Who do you want to become?” she says. “My parents taught me that it’s not a monolithic answer. You can be anything.”

Yara shows off her beautiful family to Glamour in a retro inspired shoot.
