Towards the end of season 4 of OITNB on episode 12, fans were heartbroken by the tragic death of African-American inmate, Poussey Washington, played by Simara Kelly. A corrections officer accidentally suffocated her while trying to hold her down.

The actress was interviewed by online news site, Bustle, and said that she feels proud to be on a show that can illustrate the racial injustices that are currently happening all over the world.

“I believe it’s our job as artists to reflect what is going on in our time, said Kelly.”
