Kerry Washington Identifies The Black Character She Played With ‘Black Lives Matter’ Movement

Actress and director Kerry Washington posted a photo of the character, ‘Broomhilda Von Shaft’ and interpreted the character she had represented, from the view of the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement.

As might be remembered, Washington portrayed ‘Broomhilda Von Shaft,’ who fights for her freedom, in the ‘Django Unchained’ directed by Quentin Tarantino.

Along with the photo, Emmy award-winning actress wrote as follows in the caption section:

I’ve been thinking a lot about Hildi these days. And what she and Django (@iamjamiefoxx) went through. What they survived and what they conquered. In the name of BLACK LOVE at a time when Black love and marriage were not even legally binding…”

The ‘American Son’ star added by pointing out to storyline of the movie:

“I used to say that Olivia Pope was the answer to Broomhilda’s prayers of what might be possible one day. But today I know the dreams of our ancestors were bigger than a white hat.”

And then Washington, who has played an active role in ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement since day one, started to mention real life, and have a forceful message at the end:

The movement we are in today – that is the answer. We are the answer. To their prayers. And to our own. So we have to keep loving each other. And fighting for each other. And breathing. And donating. And voting. And marching. And calling. And posting. And proclaiming that #blacklivesmatter. Love y’all.”
