Jussie Smollett broke his social media silence on Monday, posting to Instagram for the first time since Jan. 28 – the day before he reported being the victim of an attack that ended up being a hoax.

The embattled “Empire” actor on Monday shared a video of a speech given during Sunday’s Tony Awards by “Choir Boy” playwright Tarrell Alvin McCraney.

The article goes on to state the following:

“So much #PRIDE,” Smollett captioned the clip, where Alvin said, “… 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 his great legacy of spirituals and the moment his community accepted his gift but diminished his light.”
