“Thank you so much for honoring my husband’s work with an AAFCA Best Actor award,” she said during her speech, in part. “He would be so grateful for the recognition of everything that he gave to Levee Green. While the work would always remain paramount, the work is made possible by the process. The process allows you to reach your inner voice, so you have to protect it.”
“I have been blessed and fortunate in every single way to be able to literally give you all the human beings, the Black and brown human beings that I’ve embodied, and to give them to you and to help you to feel less alone through their stories,” she said in her speech. “I thank you for this honor. I will continue to leave a legacy of hope, of life, of humor, of pathos, of humanity for as long as God will have me here.”
