If I could be as free and truthful as this woman in my work…the mind reels. Continue reading Toni Morrison is the truth.
Remember the little girl who played the young Zoe Saldana in Columbiana? She’s kind of a gangster, y’all. Smart, conscious, eloquent, and not afraid to speak her mind. Color me impressed. No pun intended – but I’ll take it. LOL Take that Kylie Jenner. Note, I’m bashing her lame-o response to Amandla Stenberg’s comments, not her … Continue reading .@amandlastenberg is my new young adult hero. #race #bias
