Black people don’t know what white people are talking about when they talk about a Sister Souljah moment. I tell them it’s the moment you meet a proud, beautiful black woman you can never forget.

Earth as an ecosystem stands out in the all of the universe. There’s no place that we know about that can support life as we know it, not even our sister planet, Mars, where we might set up housekeeping someday, but at great effort and trouble we have to recreate the things we take for granted here.

My sister married an American and took his name, and my brother has shortened Sayrafiezadeh to Sayraf. So now he’s Jacob Sayraf, or sometimes Jake Sayraf. He made the change when he was a teenager, prior to the Iranian revolution and the hostage crisis. So I don’t think it was motivated by any anti-Iranian sentiment in the United States.

I remember when I was like, ‘I want to get another shot.’ And some of the other actors on ‘Sister, Sister’ were like, ‘Do you know that’s like a 1%, 2% chance for you to get another successful show? That just doesn’t happen.’ But whenever I hear, ‘No,’ or ‘You can’t,’ something inside of me just goes, ‘Oh no, yes I can!’

I have a deep, scratchy voice. Boys would call me Froggy, and my father would often tell me to shut my ‘big bazoo.’ I remember standing in line for confession. After I walked out, the other kids were like, ‘You punched your sister in the face?’ Because of my voice, my confession was like speaking into a loudspeaker.

When my sister and I were kids, swimming down in Charleston, there was this pizza parlor that had this old Dixieland band play, and I just loved Louis Armstrong and the sound of his voice, and I got up there with the band and started singing Louis Armstrong songs when I was a kid. I have no idea why, but I did it and I loved it.
