Personal life

She was born in Atlanta, Georgia. While a student at Atlanta’s Spelman College (America’s oldest private historically black liberal arts college for women) in 1970, she met actor Samuel L. Jackson, then at all-male Morehouse College, who would later become her husband. She and Jackson married in 1980. As of 2020, they have been together 50 years according to Samuel L Jackson’s tribute Instagram post.[2] They have one child, freelance film and TV producer Zoe Jackson, born in 1982. After her daughter’s birth, Richardson stopped working regularly, because, she said: “We’d vowed to be an intact revolutionary black family. But it was very, very hard.”[3]

To date, Richardson’s biggest role in a motion picture was in the 2003 musical The Fighting Temptations in which she appears as the main antagonist, the hypercritical Paulina Pritchett.

In 2014, Richardson received a Tony Award nomination for Best Lead Actress in a Play for her performance in the play A Raisin in the Sun.[4][5] This was her second appearance on Broadway after her debut in the 2009 revival of Joe Turner’s Come and Gone.[6] She also appeared in Aaron Sorkin’s adaptation of To Kill a Mockingbird on Broadway in the 2018–19 season.[7]

She has appeared in four films with her husband: “Juice” (1992), Losing Isaiah (1995), Freedomland (2006), and Mother and Child (2009).

In September 2022, Richardson Jackson becomes a director for the first time, directing among others her husband Samuel in a Broadway revival of August Wilson’s play The Piano Lesson at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre.
