'Empire' actor Jussie Smollett has returned to Instagram for the first time since he alleged that two MAGA supporters attacked him on the way to Subway in the early hours of the morning.
Smollett did not post a selfie. Instead, he posted a clip from this weekend's Tony Awards, as playwright Tarell Alvin McCraney described his Best Play nominated work "Choir Boy," as well as the "black and queer" legacy of "Negro spirituals."
"They also, more often than not, are preserved, orchestrated, and concerted by black queer folks," McCraney says in the clip.
"In 'Choir Boy," set in the fictive Charles R. Drew prep school for boys, we chronicle the moment when, a black queer kid, Pharus, tries to use their gift of song to uphold this great legacy of spirituals and the moment his community accepted his gift, but diminished his light.
"The bodies that uphold the great legacy of spirituals are often black and queer. When will we love all them for who they are and not just for what they can do?"
