Gabrielle Union On Raising Black Boys

Gabrielle Union on why her message about raising black boys is resonating and powerful role in new film Breaking In. Union says the response to discussing her sexual assault in her memoir was "overwhelming," saying each stop on her book tour felt like "a therapy session":

"It just turned into such a sense of healing and acknowledgement, and it was so important for so many people."

Union shares why she says her discussions about raising black boys are "eye-opening" for those "who may be a little ignorant to what's it's like to move through this world in brown bodies and raising brown children."

Union plays a super fierce mom in her new thriller Breaking In, and says it "celebrates kick-butt people, especially women, who do whatever it takes to protect our kids": "We don't celebrate ourselves enough as caregivers ... we do heroic things every day, every second."
