After September 11th, she co-starred with many veterans of Broadway, including Audra Mc Donald, in the 20th anniversary benefit concert of Dreamgirls.

In film, Ms. Tunie has worked with some of the most respected directors of the screen, including Taylor Hackford, Brian De Palma, Mimi Leder, Harold Becker and Oliver Stone. She had the unique opportunity to work with the legendary Al Pacino; she portrayed the possessed wife of a partner in his law firm in the hit film The Devils Advocate, and his press secretary in City Hall. She also worked with famed director Kasi Lemmons and Samuel L. Jackson on both Eves Bayou and The Cavemans Valentine.

Ms. Tunie is Chair Emerita of the Board of Directors of FIGURE SKATING IN HARLEM, a non-profit organization that teaches education and life skills to young girls in the Harlem community through the art and discipline of Figure Skating.
