Listen: Kerry Washington’s GLAAD Acceptance Speech

The ACT blog will feature “Listen” posts which will always correspond to a musical or spoken word piece or a speech.

One of the main requirements of any piece that we will share with you is depth.

We like a piece that makes you think…

 

“There is so much power in story-telling. And there is enormous power in inclusive story-telling, inclusive representation.”

“We can’t say that we believe in each other’s fundamental humanity and then turn a blind eye to the reality of each other’s existence and the truth of each other’s hearts. We must be allies… To be represented is to be humanized – and as long as anyone, anywhere is being made to feel less human our very definition of humanity is at stake and we are all vulnerable. We must see each other – all of us.”
