Freida Pinto Covers BlackBook’s Protest Issue!
How fitting, that on this day of potential political sea change in these here United States we proudly announce the arrival of our Protest Issue, where politics, activism, rebellion, and art collide. Inside, budding starlet Freida Pinto proves that Slumdog Millionaire was no fluke when she tackles her toughest role yet as a Palestinian activist in Julian Schnabel’s controversial Miral. We also introduce you to Edgar Ramirez, whose role as the charismatic terrorist Carlos the Jackal in Olivier Assayas’ Carlos proves a star-making turn. There’s also part-time actress and full-time activist Rosario Dawson, who gives us her Protest Playlist (you may have seen her tweet it about it here and there). We’ve also got a letter from Bianca Jagger, Ke$ha as you’ve never seen her before, and other people making a difference, so you don’t have to. Now go vote!
