Taraji P. Henson Talks ‘Empire’, New Memoir

We were thrilled to have actress Taraji P. Henson join us Monday morning.

Henson has won several awards, including an Emmy, for her turn as Cookie Lyon on "Empire," which is now in its third season.

You can see her next in the film "Hidden Figures," based on the true story of three women who helped NASA in the space race of the 1960s.

Henson's memoir, "Around the Way Girl" hits bookstores Tuesday.
