This is literally a post to just appreciate the beautiful Solange Knowles & her crown. I’ve always been enthralled with Solange’s eccentric style & how she moves to the beat of her own drums. #ilovemyblack
The picture⇑⇑⇑ is a still from her new music video for “Don’t Touch My Hair” off her brand new album ‘A Seat at the Table’ you can download it ⇒ Tidal or iTunes
I’ve also attached the video ⇓⇓⇓. Enjoy!

Now I’m not an avid watcher of the Netflix series Orange Is The New Black but I do love “Crazy Eyes” aka Uzo Aduba.
And just when I thought I couldn’t love her anymore I find this interview with Teen Vogue her talking to her 18 year old self (she’s now 35 years old). I swear its the funniest thing I’ve seen all day & so I decided to share with you guys.

Uzo gave some really phenomenal advice about love, hard work, friends and so forth; I think that anyone can relate to, esp women. I really appreciated where she emphasizes the importance of women having other women around. I can’t tell you just how many times I’ve heard women (the messy, dramatic as hell btw) say they don’t like having female friends or hanging with women period -__- I automatically think to myself like if ALL the women you’ve been friends with have somehow ended the friendship in not so great ways, ummmm news flash, the issue is YOU & not the entire female gender.
I’m sure most of us have witnessed the beautiful, articulate, (did I mention gorgeous?) intellectual, alluring, sophisticated actor & activist named Jesse Williams. He received the much deserved Humanitarian Award last night at the BET Awards. Two words I think accurately describes his speech are: Eloquent & Epic! Watch his full speech below! #ipromoteblack #iamposstiveblack #ilovemyblack
Due to “copyright infringement” Jesse Williams’ speech has been taken off YouTube so I have attached a link instead. Click below
“Just because we’re magic doesn’t mean we’re not real” – Jesse Williams
I could literally watch his speech over & over & over & over. (if I’m gonna be honest I’ve already watched it more than I can count) It was just so powerfully delivered, I mean how could you not? I get goosebumps each time I watch it because that man delivered nothing but the raw truth!
“Float like a butterfly sting like a bee.. His hands can’t hit what his eyes cant see… I’m so mean I make medicine sick” – Muhammad Ali
Muhammad Ali was very much apart of my childhood, as I’m sure is the truth for so many of you. I remember growing up, my dad would play his documentaries, interviews & re watch his fights over & over (This was also the era of VHS. No Youtube whatsoever so you know my pops was dedicated for all that rewinding he did manually hahah). Muhammad Ali is my most favorite athlete ever because not only was he a man that inspired so many with his exceptional athletic abilities but he was an even greater influential figure outside the ring with his unflinching beliefs that inspired hundreds of millions world wide! The Biggest, Boldest, Loudest, Strongest, Proudest & most Fearless man sports and even the world has ever seen! Black excellence. Trail blazer. Greatest to ever do it.
Muhammad Ali, a true legend & legends never die!
