Tiffany Haddish

Who inspires the women who inspire us?

For the young Tiffany Haddish, making people laugh blunted the chaos of a tough childhood…and her youthful coping mechanism has taken her a very long way: the triumph of Girls Trip, her NYT bestselling The Last Black Unicorn, an Emmy, comedy specials, films and a recent Grammy nomination for Black Mitzvah. After discovering that her father, an Eritrean refugee, was Jewish, at the age of 40, she became Bat Mitzvah. That’s inspiration!

In conversation with Abigail Pogrebin.

Women Inspiring Women:
The Series

Who inspires the women who inspire us?

When you’re afraid you’re not brave enough to take that risky step, whose image do you conjure up to give you courage?

Who do you turn to — literally or figuratively — when you need the strength to say yes, or no, to a challenge, an opportunity or a proposal?

Whose story galvanizes you to be your best self?

We all have our role models, heroines and influencers who help us keep setting our bars higher and higher, who inspire us to take risks, who serve as our bulwarks against social pressure. But who plays that role in the lives of some of America’s most successful women?

The Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center has invited a series of intriguing and multifaceted women from dramatically different backgrounds to answer that question, to explore the role of “heroines” in their lives and to talk about how they’ve helped them become the women they are.
