All My Children left the airwaves in 2011 — with its online revival ending its brief run in 2013 — but many of the show’s stars are staying busy. The latest to land a plum role: Tonya Pinkins, who it recently was announced will be featured in ABC’s Women of the Movement. The limited series centers on Emmet Till’s mother’s fight for justice for her son, with producers reportedly including Jay Z, Will Smith, and Aaron Kaplan.

The actress, who played attorney Livia Frye on All My Children between 1991 and 2009, will portray the real-life Alma Carthan, grandmother of Emmett Till.

More AMC stars are acting on screen, too. See some of their recent projects in the gallery below.
