Let your smile be one that awakens peace within all who see it.
Let your words speak the power of God and reverberate within every cell of their being.
Let your touch be healing, freeing… Continue

One of my visions for Africa is that we as Africans in America begin to partner with Africans to help create lasting institutions that move beyond the shortcomings existing in the United States. By this I mean that institutions in the United States were set up to serve a certain purpose at their inception, and that purpose was not intended to benefit Africans that were slaves here at the time.

PAULA MAY BE SAYING PEACE OUT ‘IDOL’
Damn, I had the opportunity to dance on tour with Paula Abdul many moons ago and when I tell you that these “artists” have the biggest insecurities, you better believe me. Being successful magnifies all of your baggage and bull****. You can only hide it for so long and Ms. Paula Abdul doing her “crack pot” reality show, truly showed her true colors.
Word on the… Continue

Choosing a career as a professional Makeup Artist may not win you the decision-maker
of the year award from your family or friends. After all, your mother might
say, what's wrong with being an attorney like your dad? She means well.
She's just never heard of a "Stylist to the Stars and wants to
save you from a fruitless and low-paying pursuit.
Just ask celebrity makeup… Continue

I know I’m on the late freight, everybody and their mother has weighed in on this historic election, but nonetheless, I couldn’t let this moment pass by without adding my ten cents (in this economy two cents ain’t worth what it used to be).
Lincoln once said, “Victory has many fathers.” Had he not been so justifiably fixated on the slavery issue, I’m sure he would’ve been concerned with equal rights for women… Continue

I was in a state of euphoria following Barack Obama’s election victory, as was the rest of the world, when I got a disturbing email.
It was meant to be funny, but if those jokes came out of the mind of a white person, it would’ve been inappropriate, insensitive and racist, to say the least.
What disturbed me most was how it made fun of, or more so, belittled segments of the black community, for… Continue

When I was a little girl growing up in Cincinnati, Ohio, every Sunday my mother would transform me from an ashy-legged, nappy-headed tomboy into a Sunday morning debutante. She’d press and curl my hair, dress me up in the obligatory uniform—starched dress, anklets and black patent leather Mary Jane shoes so I could watch history unfold while sitting in the pews of the Mt. Zion Baptist Church.
The man who had… Continue

November 4th, 2008 at 8 pm Eastern Standard Time Sen. Barack Obama took the lead in the Electoral College and never looked back. With a “righteous wind at his back” Sen. Obama won The Presidency of the United States in a landslide victory and made history. There were tears and cheers!
WE DID IT! Black, White, Hispanic, Asian, Native American, men, women, young and old. In other words, AMERICA DID… Continue
