Since this is Black History Month and this is a Jewish blog, we will be spending time this month honoring Black Jews. 

Sophie Okonedo recently won a Tony Award for her performance in “A Raisin in the Sun” and while I couldn’t find quality footage of her performance, I could find footage of her acceptance speech.

Okonedo also earned acclaim for her performances in Hotel Rwanda and The Secret Life of Bees.
