The parents read a letter from her apologizing for her absence and extending her appreciation for the award. She expressed being humbled to have been considered for the recognition and thanked the organizers, expressing regret that she was unable to attend in-person to accept the award, reiterating that “I AM JAMAICAN” to enthusiastic applause.
“I am so proud to be Jamaican ... I bow down to my lineage, to my heritage, to my history and to my belonging.” “We celebrate all the goodness birthed by the island itself. We celebrate you. And we celebrate me. And we celebrate our powerful and beautiful island family! I am so proud to be Jamaican,” the honouree stated in the letter.
Kerry Washington was born in January 1977 in Bronx, New York to Earl and Valerie Washington. Her father hailed from South Carolina and her mother, a professor and educational consultant migrated to Manhattan, New York from her homeland Jamaica. Through her mother, she’s a cousin of former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell.
Washington gained worldwide public recognition for starring as Olivia Pope in the ABC-TV drama series Scandal (2012–2018).
