Part II.

We came together not as "celebrities" but as human beings, artists, activists, sons, daughters, etc all trying to shine light on the work of a literary hero, iconic writer, essayist, playwright, activist #JamesBaldwin. The documentary/film I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO by director/writer #RaoulPeck highlights #Baldwin's work and deserves to be seen by everyone. It echoes the past to help contextualize the present. So timely. So insightful. Thank you to every person who lent their voice to this mic.com (shout out to @mic!) edited collaboration. Pls pls pls spread the word about #JamesBaldwin and I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO! read his work THE FIRE NEXT TIME, NOTES OF A NATIVE SON, ANOTHER COUNTRY, etc! Long live JB!

Janelle Monáe (@janellemonae)

During my first Oscar Week, I had an opportunity to attend one of the most powerful gatherings I have ever witnessed. I walked in a room full of some of my biggest onscreen Sheroes intimately celebrating each other and each other's accomplishments. I always always always dreamed of seeing us artists sitting around on couches drinking, kicking our heels off, and engaging in genuine talk. Not filtered, fake love conversations but real, honest, & sincere "I want you to win!" Interactions! The way each woman was able to express their vulnerabilities or share their story and feel understood by her fellow "artist sister" was no small thing. It's so important to know you have a tribe of women who see you, are rooting for you, understand you, and can inspire you. truth be told we are all in this together and are on the same team. The sooner we realize this the sooner no divisive tactics can ever come between us. Thank you @realalfrewoodard for being a leader and starting this ritual & inviting me, along with so many empowering women, to such an unforgettable experience. I will hold that evening in my heart and mind forever. 🙏🏿 With love. #oscarssistahs2017 #InternationalWomensDay #femthefuture (missing a few beauties in this pic)
