“when creating.
be kind to your doubt.
hear it out.
thank it for its concern.
and reassure it
that you are an artist.
and risk is essential.”

“There is so much beauty within
beauty attached to my names
beauty attached to my skin
beauty attached to the grace in my walk
beauty attached to my tongue
beauty attached to my flaws
Look at me,
brewing stars in my skin.”

“i woke up thinking
the work was done
i would not have
to practice today
how naive to think
healing was that easy
when there is no end point
no finish line to cross
healing is everyday work.”

__
Kwanzaa celebrates the seven principles of Kwanzaa, or Nguzo Saba (originally Nguzu Saba—the seven principles of African Heritage). These seven principles comprise *Kawaida, a Swahili term for tradition and reason. Each of the seven days of Kwanzaa is dedicated to one of the following principles, as follows:
__
#Umoja (Unity): To strive for and to maintain unity in the family, community, nation, and race.
__
#Kujichagulia (Self-Determination): To define ourselves, name ourselves, create for ourselves, and speak for ourselves.
__
#Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility): To build and maintain our community together and make our brothers' and sisters' problems our problems, and to solve them together.
__
#Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics): To build and maintain our own stores, shops, and other businesses and to profit from them together.
__
#Nia (Purpose): To make our collective vocation the building and developing of our community in order to restore our people to their traditional greatness.
__
#Kuumba (Creativity): To do always as much as we can, in the way we can, in order to leave our community more beautiful and beneficial than we inherited it.
__
#Imani (Faith): To believe with all our hearts in our people, our parents, our teachers, our leaders, and the righteousness and victory of our struggle.

We all have people in our lives that mold us and teach us. Those are the people we call aunty. They may not be blood but they treated you as such. They even beat you when you did something wrong and your parents were good with that. I pay homage to all those people, especially this woman. Today Rev. Mother Lynette Cameron was layed to rest. She may not be physically here with us but her teachings, energy, passion and spirit will with remain in our hearts forever.
Thank you Queen for being an educator, mother, aunty and friend. May your children and children's children continue on in your lagacy. .

I get the emphasis on IT but restaurants & beauty salons are credible businesses if done well. Where are the black restaurant franchises? Very few black restaurants make it 5 years and blacks definitely don’t own the hair or skin care industry. #blackbusiness #blackbusinesswomen #ownership #ujamaa #charlesbarkley #haircare #blackhair #blackskin #restaurant #blackrestaurants #it #tech #wealth #saturday #weekend #alabama

Today is the day!!! Come out and support small businesses!!!! #smallbusiness #ujamaa #handmadeisbetter #clothing #jewelry #gifts

Former NBA star Charles Barkley said he is giving $1 million to fund black women who start tech-oriented businesses in Alabama on TNT Network’s NBA studio, reports WTVY.
“I’m proud of my people in Alabama,” he said during the broadcast. “Shout out to Doug Jones.” He then remarked, “You know what I’m going to do Ernie, I’ll announce it right now…I am pledging 1 million dollars to black women in Alabama to start IT startups,” he said. “Because black women really came out and supported Doug Jones…”
In typical Charles Barkley fashion, he added, “This does not mean hair salons or restaurants, black women…no more weave shops.”
Barkley, who hails from Alabama, was an enthusiastic supporter of Alabama’s senator-elect, Doug Jones. #blackentrepweek

“darling,
self-love is your magic.
don’t let anyone take
you out of your element.
the beautiful show
within your soul
must go on.”
