Kerry Washington is honoring one of America's icons.
On Feb. 21, the "Scandal" star posted an Instagram photo in which she recreated Rosa Parks' famed Alabama mug shot, which was taken in 1955 following her arrest for civil disobedience after she refused to give up her seat to a white man on a city bus.
Kerry's re-creation is very impressive, as she did her hair like Rosa, donned a similar jacket and held the booking number in the same manner. Quite frankly, Kerry is the spitting image of Rosa in the modern-day interpretation.
"A lot of people think that Rosa's activism started with her refusing to give up her seat on the bus. But she lived a life of activism long before that," Kerry wrote of the woman known as "the mother of the civil rights movement." "Fighting, boycotting, marching, and even working as an investigator for the NAACP, advocating against sexual assaults on Black women."
She continued, "It was Rosa Parks' act of civil disobedience on that bus that sparked a revolution. She took that seat in order to take a stand. That seat on the bus was her fighting stance – and so we continue the fight today, in whatever way we can! Lets ask ourselves, what can we do! Sit. Stand. March. Make calls. Volunteer. Talk to your family and friends. Do whatever you can and however you can. Rosa taught us that. And we are forever grateful. It was an honor to honor her."
Rosa is just the latest woman Kerry has honored as part of Black History Month. Just last week she recreated Wilma Rudolph's gold medal winning moment from the 1960 Olympics. She also previously honored Beverly Johnson, the first Black woman to be on the cover of Vogue Magazine in 1974.
Kerry is calling her series of tributes "BlackHERstory."
