“We come in peace, but we mean business”- @janellemonae We are stronger than we know. Often smarter than given credit for. We love harder than we are loved sometimes, We are used to hearing no more than yes. NONE OF THIS EVER STOP US. Today is for us ladies, to share with the little girls who might become us one day, KEEP GOING!! #internationalwomensday Photo by #normanjeanroy
What can i say about “Black Panther” I am a woman who grew up desperately wanting to see women like me taking space on screen with powers and skill and prowess and strength, I needed to see them so that I could know that it was possible for me to one day join them... up until the 20th of February 2018 I didn’t realize that I was still thirsty for that very thing. Say what you will about this movie, critique however you please, it is still always going to be undeniable that there are women on that screen darker than a paper bag, proudly African, unyielding, intelligent and uncompromising, desirable, strong, sultry and divine. It is as if my dreams were made reality, and now I know that the thing I am striving for is absolutely possible. So may the work continue, may the dreams get bigger and may I, some day soon, be deserving and ready to perhaps share space with those women. #wakandaforever
