I enclose a YouTube speech here or below played by Larry O'Donnell on his show last evening given by Lupita Nyong'o when she accepted an honor from Essence Magazine's 7th Annual Awards for Black Women in Hollywood. The speech is as gorgeous as she is matched only by the humanitarian beauty of her heart. It is why she won and should have won the Academy Award for "12 Years a Slave."
"12 Years a Slave" is a film as poignant to me as "Schindler's List" and as meaningful to my human spirit as those who survived the Holocaust.
Every now and then someone comes along whose words, actions and compassionate essence change the world. I believe Lupita Nyong'o is such a person. Enjoy this fantastically beautiful and moving speech from a woman who is wise well beyond her youthful years.
