Lesley-Ann Brandt brilliantly portrays the fierce demon Mazikeen on Lucifer. And in a recent Instagram post, the actress paid a powerful tribute to the black women of DC TV, calling them her sisters and her tribe.

In a June 4 Instagram post, Brandt shared a powerful picture of eight black actresses, including herself, who currently portray DC characters on TV. The photo features Candice Patton who plays Iris West on The Flash; Meagan Tandy from Batwoman; Azie Tesfai of Supergirl; Vanessa Morgan who portrays Toni Topaz on Riverdale; Anna Diop from Titans and Legends of Tomorrow: Ashleigh Muray from Katy Keene; and Nafessa Williams, who stars on Black Lightning.

“Women are conditioned to see each other as competition,” Brandt captioned the photo collage. “I’ve never subscribed to that. These past few weeks, I’ve leaned into these beautiful queens. We make up the black women of the DCTV universe. I have never been prouder to call these beauties my sisters, my tribe. Thank you.”

Many of the actresses who are tagged in the post, including Patton and Tandy, commented with supportive emojis and hearts.
