Black Women are HUMAN. Bar None.

Black women are human. We are allowed to make mistakes. We are deserving of Grace. You should not have to be perfect or the supremacist idea of "respectable" to deserve Grace and Mercy.

Every time…

Every time a Black American is murdered by the police, I have to explain that murder to my child.

You were loved Aretha Franklin. Farewell Beautiful, Black Queen.

I cannot possibly sit here and transcribe how much her life and music touched my soul. When she sang it was as though she sang through me. It is as if her hands reached through into my heart and held it, enveloped it - in an embrace so ethereal that it wouldn't last go until the last note seem to fade out into the beat.  #EfabulousHB
