These #queens made the room swell yesterday. This highly accomplished group of honorees, the new president of #spelmancollege #drmaryschmidtcampbell and I was honored to host the day. #naascla hosted another incredible #spelmanjazzbrunch2017
The #blackgirlmagic in the room could only be compared to #essenceblackwomeninhollywood
Congrats to @tiamowry and @sallirichwhit our community honorees. And to our alumnae who are so brilliantly representing in their corner of hollywood. @karingist your speech will never be forgotten. "because images matter, they stick" We celebrate your voice on #greysanatomy and your presence in that writing room making sure we are heard, considered and acknowledged!! 🙏🏽 Congrats to #jamilahunter whose success at #abc speaks to her commitment to making sure our community is seen as we actually are in our many beautiful flavors and hues despite the forced narrative that is quite honestly, tired. @kenyab_in_imax3d said it best and just as he is grateful that you greenlit his show @blackish in the room so too are we!! #thankyou
And @purplephy27 we celebrate your amazing accomplishments at #warnerbrothersmusic I feel like it was just weeks ago that you were celebrating your phenomenal promotion and yesterday the sisterhood got to hold you up, honor you and send the resounding message "you've done good girl"
But after listening to your moms hilarious yet impactful speech, it's clear you were raised for greatness!! Though we all came to #spelman with our amazing potential and our many talents, we were validated and strengthened by our beloved #almamater #spelmancollege #spelmanthynamewepraise
