attorney general eric holder and wife*Attorney General Eric Holder, and his wife Dr. Sharon Malone, take it all off (not literally) for the latest juicy feature in Essence this month.

The two share their enduring love story, and gripping tales of their humble past. A close-knit family, staying grounded has been an important aspect of their love survival.

“It’s not going to stop me from doing the work I am dedicated to doing.  In fact, it’s going to intensify my efforts,” said Holder of recent political battles. “People will judge me not on the basis of this vote, but on the basis of the work I have done and will continue to do.”

Malone, who is a successful OB-GYN in Washington D.C., is featured all on her own. Throughout the interview, she tells her intriguing life story and shares a little insight into her recently debuted documentary, “Slavery by Another Name.”
