#istndwithu- we often focus on young women and girls who are violated, but the stats of reported cases on young men is 1 and 20- and again those are just the reported ones. Protector our children and equip them the the language they need and environments they need to not allow a stranger or a family member to violate them or be shamed into silence. #endvictimblaming #endmolestation #denimday #denimdaydetroit17 #apuremovement #aa490 @enoughsaidaa490 photographer: @conscious_shooter

#istndwithu - Too often when we go through traumatic experiences, victims tend to isolate themselves out of fear and shame. We are often around people who have survived sexual assault or abuse but don't know it, and we don't have to know, just be sure to love on those around you because you never know. #endvictimblaming #endviolenceagainstwomenandgirls #denimday #denimdaydetroit17 #apuremovement #aa490 photographer: @conscious_shooter

#istndwithu- sometimes all someone needs to know is they aren't alone. #apuremovement #aa490 #millenialwomen @enoughsaidaa490

A lot of super cool things happened this past week- but this for sure was amongst my highlights. Partly because I am greedy and love sweets- but majorly because this picture is a testament to the power of connection, friendship, kinship, and God's love for us. So I met this lovely sister @buyat20 through her husband to be @lu_fuki at a gig we did together with the @mikemonford at the D I A, I was just drawn to her. We chopped after the show and became instant friends. In talking we learned that I had toured her native country of Pakistan. When we saw one another at the Les Nubians show- we started talking and I began to share how much I love Pakistan 🇵🇰 and especially the food- and how one of my favorite desserts is Galabb Jam- ( it's like a heavenly baby doughnut hole). We both agreed how Galabb Jam is legit out of this world and laughed. The next day- I get a pic of Galab Jam and how her mom hadn't made it in years but when she visited she just happened to be making some. @buyat20 was kind enough to meet up with me this weekend to share. So many gems in this sweet story- but the biggest takeaway is that God knows and fulfills the silent desires of our heart and loves us and there's nothing we can do about it! (It's especially nice when He loves on us through one another- Be the conduit for Gods love for someone today!)

We cute! @lesnubians

It's always good vybes and the best of times when stopping in at @cambeaux 's Progressive Underground- it was a @lesnubians takeover! And they not only shared from their sound barrier breaking catalog but they also dropped so many gems regarding life, Love, and revolution- they are beautiful. It was fun kicking it with @aishaondrums and my @onefreq family. 💕

Make sure you get your tickets today!
