The #NYC Edition of the #BlackGirlMagic Playlist Dinner was everything sisterhood should feel like. Flyy black women showed up & showed out! The meal was exceptional & as usual, we all felt like the queens we are!! The standing ovation was hella unexpected — but the tears of joy were so worth it!! Also found out we got extended another week! So check out the brainchild on the @Spotify channel compiled by @theresachromati @sadecjoseph & myself!! Much love and respect to the @spotify team! Y’all are a dream ❤️❤️✊🏾 (Link in bio)
To witness #PatriciaSmith receive her flowers, her just dues & a standing ovation in a room full of black women was everything my bookworm heart could barely stand. @WellReadBlackGirl honored her & the wonderful writer @thenaomijackson ... what a miraculous piece of history. To witness what the world will talk about generations from now. These posts of #wrbgfest18 continue to celebrate #blackgirlmagic #literaryblackexcellence & a certain future of essential oils, Shea butter & joyful gatherings in the name of self care — get with the glow.
This poem was something that I sat with for a long time (link in bio). To write about the necessity of #MaxineWaters & the beauty of #BlackWomen & the persistence of @serenawilliams & the legacy I want to leave... I am always concerned about our reflection, the way in which my daughter will remember me. The way in which j celebrate my mother. And my mother’s mother. And the cities that tried to break us. I look at this country and am so inspired at how black women rise, even still. Like #Maya we do, because we must.
Give us this daily bread... So excited for the world to witness & be fed until whole by this gracious, concise and literary soul work. Congrats Ocean!! Thank you Ocean!! We love you Ocean ❤️❤️💕
How I left the polling place (14 in Brooklyn, NY) — a place where 6 scanners were present and only ONE worked! I stayed in line. I wanted that vote to count. My Grandma Coco took me to my first polling experience as 18 year old. And though she is gone now, I return to the polls with her. #ivoted #rp @voguehouseofnewyork featuring @dashaunwesley
