Rogers was the lady who stole the hearts of many in John Singleton’s “Boyz N the Hood.” But, after the film, she took a break and became dedicated to educating people on environmental care and hazards.

Her passion as an environmentalist drives the actress to involve in some charitable deeds that have seen her giving back to the black community.

That’s not all, as far as Rogers is concerned, making her community a healthy and safe place is a task that must be accomplished. She often gives speeches and has discussions centered on gang violence in the hood by working with a Gang Violence Foundation.


During her prime in the world of movies, the actress looked amazingly gorgeous, with a perfect physique. Surprisingly, she has been able to retain her beauty even at age 46, and as a mother of one.

Rogers is not married, but she has a young daughter; online the 46-year-old flaunts her youthful looks and her mini-me’s beauty. Both women have similar striking features and posts on Facebook reveals that they are best buddies who sometimes goof around.

The environmentalist is also a supportive mother and enjoys being present for her child. When her daughter graduated, she was joined by the girl’s father.

The doting parents posed beside their child, wearing proud looks on their faces. Their daughter wore a graduation gown and carried a bouquet.


Rogers ventured into acting in 1989 after she finished her studies. However, the major break came in 1991, when she starred alongside other entertainers like Ice-Cube, Morris Chesnut, and Nia Long in “Boyz N the Hood.”

The following year, she played the role of Damita in the film “Class Act,”; at the same time, she was featured in a few short films and documentaries. However, in 2000, after appearing in “Before Now,” the onscreen star disappeared from the movie world.

In 2020, the “Boyz N the Hood” star surprised fans with an epic comeback by producing a film titled “Beyond Merritt,” and taking on the lead role.

This movie focused on a true-life story, with its theme centered on the harsh realities of single parenting, drug addiction, and poverty.
