During 'A Night with Taraji,' the actress talks her rise to fame, her upcoming 'Saturday Night Live' gig, and offers many words of wisdom.

Fans of Taraji P. Henson have seen her on screen as an NYPD homicide detective, a loving caregiver, and most recently, the ex-wife of a hip-hop mogul, but in an intimate evening at the Schine Student Center's Goldstein Auditorium, Syracuse University students were able to see her as just Taraji.

Wearing minimal makeup and her hair pulled back for "A Night with Taraji," no topic was off limits to Henson as she shared her life story and secrets to her success with the audience.
