Woke Cover Alert! In our May issue, we're launching our first-ever #Woke100 list. It's filled with change agents who are part of a new guard of activists, educators, journalists, thinkers and creators who are more than conscious--they're ever vigilant about creating a nation in which we all have a seat at the table. Available on newsstands Friday, 4/21.

Still grateful to @essence. #woke100 #stayWOKE

Quick stop in #atlanta to give my amazing mentee some positive energy on Election Day. If you live in the New Stonecrest/Lithonia area, go vote NOW! #citycouncil #woke100

Women Are the Future! Powerful statement Sis #Repost @stefbrownjames ・・・
Going to have a moment of honesty and say that I hate that these ladies made the @time #Time100 list & @essence #Woke100 cover because of their work on the Women's March. Yes, the march was historic and wouldn't have been as successful without their leadership. However, in the grand scheme of things, it was a one day climax. It's the work @tamikadmallory and @msladyjustice1 have done over their lifetimes that cements their cover status and deserves our support and our appreciation. Do you know that these ladies literally walked from NYC to DC to meet with congressional leaders and advocate for criminal justice reform? An issue they've championed before it became popular. A sojourn they could barely get covered by the press let alone garner the community/financial support they needed. I understand that in today's society it's the flashy 'ish that gets the applause. The over-the-top folks that get the shine. But my hope is that people like Tamika and Carmen who quietly (and more often not so quietly ) chip away at the walls of injustice without the fanfare and without the ego are lifted up not because they produced an event or created a #hashtag, but because the product of their work brings about lasting, substantial changes for the betterment of black and brown people in this nation. Cause let's be frank - if you're an "activist" gaining followers or being placed on "lists" for doing anything other than breaking down real barriers, you're not a leader...you're a leach. At the end of they day though, I'm happy to know that these ladies will use whatever promotion their receive to uplift others and not just themselves. Praying for your continued strength, protection and blessings sisters.

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. *************************************************

Back To School Health Tip!
As kids come home with more vocabulary lists, flash cards and book reports, they are also coming home with more germs.
Teachers are typically required to provide their own tissues and antibacterial soap for the classroom, and these are typically the fastest materials to disappear. Donate plenty of tissues and antibacterial soap to your child’s classroom every couple of months so children who do come in with colds can avoid spreading it. #houstondoctors #houston #willowbrook #emergencymedicine #healthyeating #northhouston #cyfairtx #woke100 #whatadoctorlookslike #houstonhealth #doctor #topdoctor #blackgirlwhitecoat #emergencydoctor #eattolive #bewell #drfoykemiikyaator
