Diahann Carroll, born Carol Diahann Johnson, is known for her performances in some of the earliest major studio films to feature black casts, including Carmen Jones in 1954 and Porgy and Bess in 1959. In 1968, she starred in “Julia,” which made her the first African American actress to star in her own television series where she did not play a domestic worker.

On this day in 1965, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. led thousands of people on a 54-mile march from Selma to Montgomery Alabama to call for voting rights for African Americans. #blackheritage #marchonselma

Born Betty Dean Sanders, Dr. Betty Shabazz was the wife of Malcolm X. This strong Sistah was left to raise six daughters after her husband’s assassination. Additionally, she returned to college to complete an undergraduate degree that she’d started; and went on to receive her master’s degree and doctorate degree in higher education administration and curriculum development. Additionally, Shabazz is a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
One of the best movies I’ve see (a Lifetime movie) was “Betty and Coretta,” which chronicled the relationship between Betty Shabazz and Coretta Scott King. These exceptional Sistahs shared the common experience of losing their activist husbands at a young age and raising their children as single mothers. In the movie, Shabazz is portrayed by Mary J. Blige, and King by Angela Bassett.

On this day in 1950, Dr. Ralph Bunche received the Nobel Peace Prize for his work as a mediator in the Palestine crisis. He is the first African American to be so honored. #blackhistory

I think Mary Jane Blige is a cool Sistah. Real... She’s shared so much of her life, both the good and bad through her music. Through all of the trials, this Sistah keeps surviving and thriving. Legendary... She’s released 13 albums since 1992, and I’m certain that I own 11 of them. I guess that makes me a fan, huh? In addition to being a singer/songwriter, Blige is also an accomplished actress. I gotta check out her latest movie, “Mudbound,” which is currently on Netflix.
Oh here’s a fun fact... Although Mary J was born in New York, she grew up in Savannah, GA.

On this day in 1968, students at #Howard University began a sit-in at an administration building that would last five days. The students demanded campus reform and the establishment of more courses in African history. In all, more than 100 students would stand in solidarity for the cause and inspire the university to expand its African curriculum. #celebrateblackhistory #blackhistory #blackhistory365 #tbbhf

Nikki Giovanni was born Yolande Cornelia Giovanni, Jr. She gained initial fame in the late 1960s as one of the poets/authors of the Black Arts Movement. Influenced by the Civil Rights Movement and the Black Power Movement of that time, Giovanni’s early work provides a strong, militant African-American perspective. My favorite Nikki G poem is “Ego Trippin’ (There’s a Reason Why).” Giovanni graduated from Fisk University (an HBCU) with a BA in History. She is a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. #BlackHistoryMatters #CelebrateBlackHistory #BlackWomenMatter #CelebrateWomensHistory #CelebratingSIS #SeriouslyImpressiveSistahs

I started paying attention to Valerie Pettiford in her recurring role as Rhonda Sales on “Being Mary Jane.” Based on other shows/movies that I’ve seen her in since, my analysis is that this Sistah is sharp! I don’t know much about her yet, but I’m impressed so she gets a highlight from me.

One of my favorite quotes by Nina Simone is “It’s an artist’s duty to reflect the times,” and that is exactly what she did. During the Civil Rights Movement, she sung what I refer to as “revolutionary music,” highlighting the injustices of that time. One of her most powerful songs, the one that likely damaged her career was entitled, Mississippi “GD” (fill it in ‘cuz I don’t post profanity). This song was written in response to the 1963 murder of civil rights activist Medgar Evers and the Birmingham church bombing.

On December 1, 1955, in Montgomery, Alabama, Rosa Louise McCauley Parks refused to give up her seat in the "colored section" to a white passenger, after the whites-only section was filled, leading to her arrest. Parks' act led to the Montgomery bus boycott, which became an important symbol of the Civil Rights Movement. Although widely honored in later years, she and her husband suffered for her act by being fired from their jobs and receiving numerous death threats. Upon her death in 2005, she was the first woman and third non-US government official to lie in honor in the Capitol Rotunda.

When one inspires me, I love learning about him or her. I also find ways to write about them and their influence, either through a poem, a blog post, a Facebook/Instagram post, etc. Vanessa L. Williams is one deserving Sistah... Williams goes down in history as the first African American Miss America in 1984. Due to a scandal that arose after her crowning, Williams was forced to resign. However, she rebounded by establishing a successful career as a singer and actress.
I love Vanessa’s story of triumph after a great trial. She is a testament that one doesn’t have to be defined by his or her past mistakes and bad decisions; but can move forward and do and be greater. I compiled this lesson learned from Vanessa L. Williams into a blog post last year, so check it out: https://www.ambassadorspeaks.com/single-post/2016/09/13/From-Trial-to-Triumph-The-Life-Lessons-of-Vanessa-L-Williams

Also, for more information about Williams, check out the memoir that she co-wrote her mother entitled, “You Have No Idea: A Famous Daughter, Her No-Nonsense Mother, and How They Survived Pageants, Hollywood, Love, Loss (and Each Other).”

It’s so much misinformation that’s out surrounding this next Queen, you really have to read her autobiography, “Assata: An Autobiography” to get a full understanding of her truth... I won’t even attempt to share her story, but instead encourage you to listen to Common’s song, “A Song for Assata” — https://youtu.be/AaAMJZNi5f4. This song is accurate with the accounts described in Assata’s book.
Assata Shakur, aka JoAnne Chesimard, was a member of the Black Panther Party and the Black Liberation Army.

I fell in love with Natalie Maria Cole in 2000 after watching her biopic, “Livin’ For Love: The Natalie Cole Story,” which aired on Lifetime. I then bought her greatest hits album, and fell in love with soulful songs like “This Will Be (An Everlasting Love,” “I Can’t Say No,” “I’ve Got Love on My Mind,” and “Inseparable.” The daughter of Nat King Cole, Natalie Cole established a successful career as a singer in the 70s. She graduated from the University of Massachusetts in 1972, where she majored in Child Psychology and minored in German. She is a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
To learn more about Natalie Cole, check out her books: “Angel on My Shoulder: An Autobiography” and “Love Brought Me Back: A Journey of Loss and Gain.”

Earlitha Kelly Johnson (Cookie Johnson) has been an active philanthropist and has worked toward combating HIV in the black community in the years after her husband, Magic Johnson’s diagnosis announcement in 1991. As Magic has been my favorite basketball player of all times, I became intrigued with his wife after reading his autobiography, “My Life” as a kid. Then just recently, I read Cookie’s memoir, “Believing in Magic,” in which she shares details of her marriage, motherhood, faith, and how an HIV diagnosis over twenty-five years ago changed the course of their lives forever. In what she has endured and overcome, I think that Cookie Johnson is the real MVP!
