Speak 👏🏾that 👏🏾word 👏🏾queen 👏🏾Viola👏🏾👸🏾 This is beautiful. This is inspiring. Unapologetic, powerful, passionate Ms. Davis. _____________________ Viola Davis is an extraordinary woman with a large platform, but I’m certain Black women in many professions all over the globe are feeling these words. _____________________ #womenintheworld #intersectionality #intersectionalfeminism #violadavis #knowyourworth #solidarity
Black Panther was so much fun, powerful, and exciting to watch! The visuals, the costumes, Kendrick Lamar’s music, #blackexcellence all up and down that cast and please, protect Ryan Coogler at all costs. The man is 31 years old and has directed Fruitvale Station, Creed, and now Directed and co-wrote Black Panther. Brilliant. Had me in tears. ______________________________ I loved seeing the full spectrum out enjoying this film, from a little boy holding his Black Panther action figure with his dad, to multiple couples who looked to be 60+ at the theater we were in. It’s a community experience. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️🙅🏾♀️ #WakandaForever #killmonger #BlackPanthermovie #BlackPanther #doramilaje
#tbt Minnesota, 1979. Whew, so many dynamics growing up as a multi-racial Black child in a predominantly white community. A long process of unpacking and discovering things about myself related to my racial identity. ———————————— I look at this picture and see my parents, full of hope, and I can’t help but think of their experiences with racism and how their stuff also impacted their parenting. Things I didn’t know about until I was an adult, that filled in so many blanks. _____________________________ Then asking myself, how can I protect & prepare my son, a child who is 100% Black according to American tradition but who’s actual skin tone is as white as anyone. Trying to explain racial dynamics to a child with little context is insane. Though I disagree with the choice, I can see why parents avoid it. Ta-Nehisi Coates wrote, “race is the child of racism, not the father.” This sticks with me. You can’t make logic out of concepts that are not rooted in logic. But you can still deal in fact and the fact is, race matters.
Look at this beautiful Rainbow Swiss Chard! The last time I made this the chard had come straight from the garden at @sweetwaterfoundation. This was store bought, but it’ll have to do for now. 😛 _________________________________________ Flavorful and simple recipe: -Wash the Swiss chard -remove the stems from the leaves -chop your onion and garlic -chop the stems into 1 inch pieces -roll the leaves into a bundle, slice into 1/2 inch ribbons -heat coconut or avocado oil in a large pot -add onion & garlic, cook until translucent -add red pepper flakes, salt & pepper and chard stems -add chard ribbons in batches, allowing it to wilt down -add balsamic vinegar & serve ___________________________________________ I used three bunches of chard, one onion, 8/9 garlic cloves, 2 Tbsp coconut oil, 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper, 4 Tbsp balsamic vinegar, salt & pepper to taste Adapted from The Neelys on FoodNetwork.com
