Dec 19 I celebrate my #American birthday! I feel it is more important Birthday than my actual one😂! The day I was granted US citizenship!🇺🇸
It was an emotionally and financially exhausting road. But dec 19 2014 was the happiest and proudest moments of my life ! #proudtobeanamerican
Did you know that it takes 4 weeks to notice a change in your body? 8 weeks for your friends to notice. 12 weeks for the rest of the world to notice. And one day to decide that you are enough 🙏🏻 Believe in yourself and you will be unstoppable ❤️.
Feeling so inspired by the @americanwomanproject, a multimedia portrait, interview and documentary series about Black American women and femmes. Reframing stereotypical American femininity (check out Tarana Burke recreating a modern day Breakfast at Tiffany’s) and highlights the beauty, strength, and creativity of Black womxn, painting a stunning picture of the reality of womxn’s lives. .
Swipe to the last picture to see the incomparable Tarana being interviewed by the equally brilliant @rachel.cargle at MUSE conference in Bend this month. Our team had the privilege of attending their talks and taking lessons in intersectionality and inclusivity at every level of our lives, as well as Rachel’s workshop on Unpacking White Feminism. We all have work we should be doing to help move the world forward, and it’s on us to do the research and learn how we can lift each other up. ・・・
Repost from @americanwomanproject by @hunyrocks
I always intended to post this photo of @taranajaneen that I took during her @americanwomanproject photoshoot. I knew it was fire when I took it—it was actually the last shot I took that day. Yesterday Tarana decided it was time to release it to the world, and now that it’s gone viral, I figured I better post it here, too, for posterity. .
Picture it: Labor Day weekend 2017. I was kickin it in my old Harlem neighborhood which was also Tarana’s current neighborhood. This was before the world was introduced to Tarana’s #metoo movement, so nobody paid us any mind beyond wondering why this tall, voluptuous Black woman was wearing an evening gown with Timbs in Jimbo’s and the bodega. This block in Harlem was an iconic locale for an iconic idea: Tarana’s version of Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. In her own words: ”I wanted to play with the idea of this delicate, beautiful [person] with this person who was *not* traditionally beautiful and *not* traditionally thought of as delicate...in the hood! This is my neighborhood; this is where I’m from.”

In this world women have enough to deal with, let's not have dealing with mean girls be part of it. Be nice. Support each other. You may not agree with my cause or the message of Carry Girl and I may not agree with you. But we must respect each other. Being mean to another women isn't productive and puts so much negativity in the world...for what? The amazing part of living in this great country is that we can have different views and opinions about different issues. That's ok!! What's not ok is belittling or name calling. So, dont be mean. Just support people. Be Nice, it's cool!! #benice
