This time last week I was preparing to moderate a talk-back at the @garrymarshalltheatre for the AMAZING play #themountaintop! Here are pics from the day and that moment! Thanks @gilbertglennbrown @carolynratteray and @tyreebp for taking part in the great conversation about MLK and race in America. And thank you to my friends at #TheGarryMarshallTheatre for letting me lead the convo. ❤️ Go. See. The. Mountain. Top!!!! You have until #March6th #GilbertGlennBrown and #CarolynRatteray did the dang thing as MLK and Camae respectively.
#Repost @comiclonilove via @alfrededmondjr UPDATE: For clarity’s sake, Gucci is the problem. As is any other company that creates blackface imagery and calls it fashion. That said, as this post details, the bigger problem is those of us who use brand names to validate our self-worth. That need for validation creates an environment where we can’t kneel or stand for a dang thing. And boycotts work...when we all stand together and say #NawSon. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with liking nice things. And if you can partake of luxury brands without your light bill and mortgage taking a hit, have at it! Life is short. Do you and all that. Shoot, I’m the #FrugalQueen and even I own a Gucci piece or two. I rock them right along with pieces from my fashion favorite @target! 😏BUT I will not be wearing or buying anything Gucci again until and unless this blackface situation is rectified. @dapperdanharlem meeting with the powers that be @Gucci is a start but they have to do more than meet with that glorious fashion icon to fix what they broke. Just wanted to make my position on all this clear. #Selah ❤️✊🏾
And this package from @jordanpeele and the folks at the @usmovie. The scissors are real. Trust and know that if I look into my driveway and see ME in a red jumpsuit smiling back, these suckers WILL be used. #TheTeathered #USMovie ✂️ #WatchYourself #MarchTwentySecond #ImAlreadyScared 😳
I arrived home today to find two surprises waiting for me... these BEAUTIFUL flowers from the kind folks over @therealdaytime (Thanks guys and gals!) And... wait for it... (next post has your answer)

The struggle is real! @misterharleybrown let me know he needed to go outside. When I opened the door it was to bark at said piece of wayward plastic. That was the ONLY reason. Didn’t have to pee or poop. Nope. Just had to let the neighborhood know that he was ferocious and no piece of plastic stood a chance. #DogsOfInstagram #CockerSpaniel
