Kerry Washington Honors Black History Month By Sharing The Untold Story Of Her Family’s Hero

Hollywood actor Kerry Washington, nominated for numerous awards for her role in the fan-favorite series, ‘Little Fires Everywhere,’ took to her verified Instagram account on February 11 to share her family’s story, on Black History Month.

Also known as African-American History Month, Black History Month is “an annual observance originating in the United States.” As many did, the ‘Scandal‘ actor also went to her social media account to honor the month; she posted a TBT photo of herself with her maternal granny and revealed that in their family they celebrate Black History all day.

Stating that honoring Black history is about remembering who they have been, Washington unveiled the untold story of granny, Isabelle Moss, who came to the US from Jamaica through Ellis Island in 1924. She wrote alongside the mentioned photo:

“Whenever I am in the presence of the Statue of Liberty I wonder what it must have been like for her, as a young woman, to see that towering symbol of freedom as she sailed into the harbors of NYC.”

Washington also said that she would go on share more family photos throughout the rest of the Black History Month and encouraged her fans and followers to join her:

“I hope you will join me in honoring your Black History too, the history that made us! 🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤 #tbt”

Following her post, Naomi Campbell, Nicole Beharie, Darby Stanchfield, and more celebs jumped into the comments section to thank her for sharing her unique story.
