Happy birthday to the one and only @TheRealDebbieAllen!! I adore you for soooo many reasons. You are truly an inspiration!

Today, and everyday, is a day to ponder the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his actions of love, disruptive peace, and intrepid faith in humankind. #MLK

A week ago today at the @GoldenGlobes! Thank you @ZuhairMuradOfficial for this stunning piece of art. The dress made me feel like a winner. #blackish #GoldenGlobes

There will be women's marches across the country on Jan 21st. ALL ARE WELCOME TO MARCH. This is a movement that is led by women, but it is not just for women. It's for all people. We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us. We work peacefully while recognizing there is no true peace without justice and equity for all. We practice empathy with the intent to learn about the intersecting identities of each other. Unity. Protection. Power. Progress. Join a @womensmarch #WomensMarch #January21

"There is no sound more powerful than the marching feet of a determined people." #GoodTrouble @RepJohnLewis is one of our country's civil rights leaders and living treasures! Know this man. Know your history.

#AboutLastNight: @KenyaB_In_Imax3D wrote and directed last night's must see episode of @blackishABC@AnthonyAnderson's acting was elegantly restrained and beautifully honest, and the rest of the cast was (as usual) just wonderful. If you haven't seen it or want to watch it again (I do!), go to or the ABC app. #blackish

Throwback to having fun with these two wonderful people at the @WhiteHouse Correspondents Dinner. Thank you @BarackObama @MichelleObama for making history, creating a legacy for this country that we can all be proud of, and for expanding the realm of possibility & hope for our young people. #BarackObama #MichelleObama #TBT

All new MUST SEE episode of @blackishabc tonight! #blackish #Lemons #Election

This man and this woman! THANK YOU!!!

“Yes, our progress has been uneven. The work of democracy has always been hard. It’s always been contentious. Sometimes its been bloody. For every two steps forward, it often feels we take one step back. But the long sweep of America has been defined by forward motion. A constant widening of our founding creed: to embrace all, and not just some.”

“Take your broken heart, turn it into art.” - Carrie Fisher
Thank you #MerylStreep.

“There was one performance this year that stunned me. It sank its hooks in my heart. Not because it was good; there was nothing good about it ... It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter. Someone he outranked in privilege, power and the capacity to fight back. It kind of broke my heart when I saw it, and I still can’t get it out of my head, because it wasn’t in a movie. It was real life. And this instinct to humiliate, when it’s modeled by someone in the public platform, by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody’s life, because it kinda gives permission for other people to do the same thing. Disrespect invites disrespect, violence incites violence. And when the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose ... This brings me to the press. We need the principled press to hold power to account, to call him on the carpet for every outrage. That’s why our founders enshrined the press and its freedoms in the Constitution. So I only ask the famously well-heeled Hollywood Foreign Press and all of us in our community to join me in supporting the Committee to Protect Journalists, because we’re gonna need them going forward, and they’ll need us to safeguard the truth.”

This!!! The entire speech was needed and perfect!

What a moment. What a huge moment!! I'm back at work and trying to make my way through all the incredible love coming my way. I'm so thankful to the #HFPA for this award. Congrats to all the winners and nominees. What a night! #blackish #GoldenGlobes

Here I come @GoldenGlobes! Congratulations to all the other nominees! #blackish #GoldenGlobes.

The tears have begun. Oh, how @MichelleObama has redefined what it means to be a First Lady. What an example she has set, what an inspiration she is. Thank you for these words.

My mama at the @GoldenGlobes in 1973 with Michael Jackson. So excited to be attending for the first time this year! #blackish #GoldenGlobes #FBF

Last night I hosted a screening for @LovingTheFilm starring the lovely Ruth Negga.

#LOVING is an incredibly important story…particularly important to me as a mixed race woman…this is the story of the people who made space for the freedom that give birth to me.

The Lovings were an interracial couple arrested for breaking the law by simply being married. Their case, #LovingVVirginia (1967) lead to the landmark civil rights decision invalidating laws prohibiting interracial marriage. Embarrassingly, I did not know of this story until I heard about the movie LOVING.

Thank you Jeff Nichols for telling the story, and thank you to #RuthNegga and @JoelEdgerton for your tender, transparent, and quietly powerful performances. #ThisIsLoving

I love you @TheRealDebbieAllen and thank you!
