Twins, and Sister, Sister stars Tia Mowry-Hardrict and Tamera Mowry-Housley, grace the May cover of EBONY and dish on family, career and growing up in the public eye.

Tamera on discussing racism with her son Aden: “What I learned to just tell him, ‘They don’t know any better. This is what they’re taught.’ And those [people exist] on both sides; [There are] people who are racist against Blacks and people who are racist against mixed people. All you have to say is, ‘They don’t know,’ and just love them any way.”

Tia on their moments of hardships: “After Sister, Sister ended, nobody was calling. My sister and I were sick and tired of being sick and tired of sitting back and waiting for those phone calls. We had the mentality, ‘We’re not going to depend on anybody anymore, we’re not going to let someone else’s value of us diminish how we value ourselves, and we’re going to put action in place.’ We put our minds together and executed [our plans].”

Tamera on her interracial marriage with FOX news correspondent Adam Housley: “Honestly, growing up, I [just] knew I was going to marry a Black man. But, as I grew up, I learned to just be open. I just wanted to be with someone who was confident around me and who I felt comfortable being myself with.”
