We can not — and obviously will not forget about “Black History Month” ; Our historic culture still stings the society today from fashion, music, politics, films…and even our perspectives. We have this “magic” thing about us as “blacks” that everyone is naturally attracted to. I personally feel as if I am of no color, I am simply human but that doesn’t erase my ancestry, and because of my background I am who I am today. I am living in my freedom because of the struggles and hard work of the past. Some like to dis-own or downgrade the “lighter” black woman such as myself because they were led to believe that we are not “black enough” yet we still encountered racism of some sort even from our own kind — On top of being a woman which was a sexist issue we’ve dealt with for many years and still deal with today so… we also face/ have faced struggles of our own and for that reason let me acknowledge some of my favorite “Black” Women in the Arts.
“It [prejudice] is such a waste. It makes you logy and half-alive. It gives you nothing. It takes away.”
“I am intrigued with combining the remnant of memories, fragments of relics and ordinary objects with components of technology. It’s a way of delving into the past and reaching into the future simultaneously.”
Eartha Mae Kitt was an American singer, actress, dancer, activist, voice actress and comedian, known for her highly distinctive singing style.
“It’s all about falling in love with yourself and sharing that love with someone who appreciates you, rather than looking for love to compensate for a self love deficit.”
I admire these women for their strengths to be able to push forward with their talents and make such an amazing impact on our culture. There is something so powerful about being an established black woman in the entertainment and art business. Today we’re calling it “Wonderful Women Wednesday”
