She captioned the post, “I have been a huge fan of Insecure since the jump. This is a show that showcases our full humanity. Our beautiful joys and struggles. Our culture, our neighborhoods. Our rich alive blackness. To direct this show was a privilege and delight! I’m so proud to be part of the @insecurehbo family. The world needs more #MomentsOfBlackJoy right now. I think we did that AND more. I hope you’ll watch, and I hope you laugh. Or cry. Or blush. Or scream. Whatever you need to do. We’re all out here #LowkeyTrying #KerryDirectsInsecure.”
Rae also shared Washington’s selfie on her personal Instagram account and wrote, “I always credit Scandal, @shondarhimes and @kerrywashington for piquing the industry’s renewed interest in seeing black female leads on television. So it was such a pivotal, full circle treat to have ‘Miss Kerry Babyyyy’ herself impart her wisdom and incredible direction for this episode of Insecure. She is a DIRECTOR and it was so dope to see the entire cast, myself included, willingly challenged by the bar she set. Forever a fan!”
“Forever a fan” is right.
