Mahershala Ali’s Powerful Speech

At last night’s SAG Awards, in a vote consisting solely of his peers, Mahershala Ali finally won a beyond-deserved honour for the role of Juan in MoonlightAnd given the dark context of the last couple of days, Ali both elaborated on the important meaning of the characters in Moonlight, and on his feelings as a Muslim American in the current climate of religious persecution.

I think there is a power to grace and humbleness that can help the world overcome the worst of society’s demons.

He displayed that power in that speech. Well done sir.
