6.152663Mr. Washington is currently starring in a Broadway adaptation of Lorraine Hansberry’s “A Raisin in the Sun.”

In an inspirational speech, he encouraged a group of young actors to use their talent for good and never forget to pray.

“I pray,” he says, “that you all put your shoes way under the bed at night so that you gotta get on your knees in the morning to find them. And while you’re down there thank God for grace and mercy and understanding. We all fall short of the glory, we all got plenty,” he told the actors.
