#Atlanta! #Georgia! A friend of a friend of a friend I know has bought out a showing of #HiddenFigures THIS Sunday! Take someone that you feel needs to see this and would be inspired by this important movie! ;-) First come first serve. Special shoutout to my big sis @therealoctaviaspencer for leading the pack and inspiring us all with this one!;-)
"An injustice done to my fellow sister is an injustice done to me." Today my thoughts are with the @womensmarch. The rhetoric of the election deeply hurt me and the people I love.
On January 21 (tomm) I’ll be at the Women’s March as a woman and American (not artist) along with @Jidenna@stbeautyband and more marching in Washington making sure our voices are heard.
I have always believed that, "Silence is our enemy. Sound is our weapon." #WhyIMarch#WomensMarch
Happy birthday mom. Thank you for birthing a nation full of brand new electric young ladies. Thank you for loving the American people just like your own family, even on days SOME of us Americans were ungrateful and underserving. We are ALL better because of your leadership and example. We remain forever indebted to you madam and will continue to "go high when they go low". #FirstElectricLadyoftheUnitedStates#FELOTUS
THANK YOU ALPHA KAPPA ALPHA SORORITY (XI TAU OMEGA CHAPTER) & DELTA SIGMA THETA (KANSAS CITY MISSOURI ALUMNAE CHAPTER) for COMING TOGETHER and bringing so many young girls to see #HiddenFigures! This is the first auditorium. Over 645 tickets were sold. AMAZING.
my friend Kelly sent me this text: "so you remember the lady and the 2 girls you met about 3 years ago?
It's her group (AKA's) and another group of Deltas
Her message: "It was a joint collab between the Grandview chapter ( mine) of AKA and the KCMO chapter of DST. At the Plaza. We just left.
It's Xi Tau Omega chapter of AKA and Kansas City MO Alumnae chapter. Just wanted to make a contribution to Opening weekend " -Keirra King
We will never forget the sacrifices you made or the impact you continue to have. THANK YOU FOR ALWAYS REMINDING ME that I am not an American nightmare I am your AMERICAN DREAM. This is our country. We helped build it. We belong. We, too, are American.
