Gabrielle Union, star of BET's "Being Mary Jane," spoke candidly with the Baton Rouge community Tuesday night about her history with sexual abuse.
Union has been fulfilling her responsibility as an activist by bringing awareness to this topic. Her vulnerability was definitely appreciated.
She informed us that she was raped during a robbery while at work at age 19.
Gabrielle described the situation so vividly that I couldn't help but to close my eyes and imagine myself in her situation.
She then explained that her attacker was armed with a gun and the moment he set it down she reached for it. Trying to shoot him, she shot at the ground. Then, they began to fight for the gun. In due time, he decided to flee the scene.
