Taraji P. Henson’s acceptance speech at the 2017 Screen Actors Guild Awards was unforgettable. In the video at the end of this article, Henson is seen alongside her Hidden Figures cast mates, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monae. The stars of Hidden Figures won the award for Outstanding Performance By A Cast In A Motion Picture and Taraji could have won the presidential election with her inspirational words of empowerment.
Henson advised her heart to steady itself and then asked God to talk to her. The Empire star then transformed into Cookie Lyon, for a moment, demanding the audience to “Listen!” She then explained that Hidden Figures is about unity and sent a beautiful shout out to the African American mathematicians Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson.
The deep love I have for these women……words can NOT express!!! #SistersForLIFE SO PROUD OF US!!! @therealoctaviaspencer @janellemonae #HiddenFigures? #HiddenNoMore #STONGERTOGETHER ???A photo posted by taraji p henson (@tarajiphenson) on
