🔊Interlude: TINA TAUGH ME "I think part of it is accepting that it's so much beauty in being black and that's the thing that, I guess, I get emotional about because I've always known that. I've always been proud to be black. Never wanted to be nothing else. Loved everything about it, just... It's such beauty in black people, and it really saddens me when we're not allowed to express that pride in being black, and that if you do, then it's considered anti-white. No! You just pro-black. And that's okay. The two don't go together. Because you celebrate black culture does not mean that you don't like white culture or that you putting it down. It's just taking pride in it, but what's irritating is when somebody says, you know, "They're racist!", "That's reverse racism!" or, "They have a Black History Month, but we don't have a White History Month!" Well, all we've ever been taught is white history. So, why are you mad at that? Why does that make you angry? That is to suppress me and to make me not be proud." @saintrecords @broccolicity @afrolatinas_

BERRY NICE: this deep, sensuous colour looks exceptionally good in more luxurious fabrics like satin and velvet. It also pairs well with lighter shades! As seen on- Hermes, (Unknown lady in an unknown outfit - do comment if you know who she is!), Solange Knowles in Carven. #workwearedit #berrynice #purple #winecolour #hermes #solangeknowles #carven

What I like about Lil'Bow Wow's Puppy Love video is Beyonce's younger sister Solange as his love interest. 👌🏽 | #LilBowWow #PuppyLove #JaggedEdge #SolangeKnowles #2001 #Early00s #SoSoDef #JermaineDupri #HipHop #OldSchoolVibes

#Repost @lovebscott with @get_repost ・・・ Congratulations to singer/activist #SolangeKnowles on being named the Harvard Foundation's 2018 Artist of the Year! Selected by students and staff, she will receive the award at Harvard’s annual Cultural Rhythms festival on March 3. The foundation is honoring her for creating a “public platform to advocate for justice and fair representation, promoting constructive and empowering political messages." The Grammy award-winning recording artist, songwriter, and visual artist released her critically-acclaimed "A Seat at the Table" in 2016, a work reflecting upon self-love, community and race relations. She was recognized with Best R&B Performance for "Cranes in the Sky" by the Recording Academy in 2017. She followed up the album's release with an innovative tour of artistic performances at places like the Guggenheim and the Chinati foundation. She has since been recognized for her creative contributions to culture by "Billboard" with the Impact Award and as one of Glamour’s Women of the Year in 2017. According to the university, the Harvard Foundation for Intercultural and Race Relations aims to "improve relations among racial and ethnic groups within the University and to enhance the quality of our common life." Past honorees include Queen Latifah, Viola Davis and John Legend. [via @becauseofthem] #womanapproved
