  1. She’s such a beautiful person inside and out. I love everything she stands for. You can see her live in concert on my page. The energy was truly electric and unforgettable. A party for freedom fighters. I tried to capture that. ♥️

  2. Black people tell one another they're not "good enough" all day, comparing hair texture, weave/natural, skin color, fat/skinny…etc. than any person of any other race tells them. I HATE that dark/light shit I see everywhere, literally EVERYWHERE. Even in the workplace 🙄. That's not a community imho. Hopefully this is the start of creating one? I mean, given the horrific shit white supremacists have done (to mainly black people) this year alone since like the 1950's, I'd say it's about time. Also, please stop saying she is "well spoken" and " very articulate" because she doesn't speak ebonics…? You sound like white people with micro-aggressions. Lol!

  3. I love her I love her fiminisum ,I love her style, she reminds me Everytime I'm feeling down or ugly or stupid, that I'm tripping,I'm a beautiful, intelligent,black queen and I don't have to feel bad about anything,fear anything,and speak my truth.
