Still grateful to @essence. #woke100 #stayWOKE

To GOD BE THE GLORY. So proud of @_callmesparkle. She is featured in @essence May 2017 issue. Such an honor, especially since this is the special collector's edition #woke100. After we picked up the magazine I literally cried my eyes out in the car. Just kept saying God you are faithful. Some saw our YT video when I explained I didn't think God would ever bless me with a little girl because of past mistakes. I promised God If he blessed me with the desires of my heart I would raise her up to honor him. Sorta where the nickname Sparkle came from. When @thelouisreign screenshot the article to us, we stood in the streets of NYC screaming and jumping. I asked Sparkle, who did she want to give a shout out to and her reply: Jesus. Told me the Holy Spirit told her she was going to be famous 😭😭 ( can't make this up) HUGE thank you to the Essence team and big congrats to the other mini's featured. All of the girls did amazing. Proud ❤️

ohhh.MY…WOOOOW..this is a stunning honor!
and a beautiful moment to honor the grace of UBUNTU, “i am what I am because of who we all are”

this recognition was built off the backs and from the hearts of Harriet Tubman and fellow Black feminist, abolitionist, visionaries who are unabashedly working towards emancipation within our bodies, communities and movements.
thank you #Essencemagazine for illuminating our work within this prestigious roll call of change makers. While you see me as owner, I see myself as a humble co-steward of work that is ancient and mutually shared. this work began before I was prayed into existence and will continue passed my evolution. this work that moves beyond a rhetoric of self care to collectively transforming the power and cruelty of generational and current violence, abuse, oppression and trauma. an interdependent politic that honors, affirms, and unapologetically queers the centering of wellness for the sake of bolstering strong, strategic and sustainable movements.
in true Harriet Tubman and Naija Igbo fashion, i gotta call in all the folks who are part of the village. the tribe of warriors and freedom fighters who make Harriet’s Apothecary possible. *************************************************
