Kelela is a second-generation Ethiopian American singer #EthiopiansInDC

When Kelela heard that a muralist had recently painted her face onto a brick wall mere footsteps away from the glow of Washington’s historic Howard Theatre, the Washington-area native went to see it. Then she wept. “It makes me feel a sense of belonging,” the singer says, an entire spectrum of emotions flooding into her voice. “If a weird black girl like me — a second-generation Ethiopian — can be on a wall, it means everybody can.”
