There is the list of some quotes of Nicole Beharie:
  • [American Violet (2008) ] Every other script with a young black woman she is dancing or having someone's kid. This was a hopeful story. Somebody standing up for something. It's about a woman, a black woman. You don't really see parts like this for women under 30. I didn't think I was going to get it. This story is presented in a personal way.
  • Moving around all the time, you just have to keep yourself entertained. And I was kind of a bully, even though I'm tiny, 5' 2". As a child, I'd boss other kids around and dress my little brother up, just putting on shows, singing and dressing up.
