I've already said a million times how much my Nana has influenced my life as a woman but I'm not sure if I've ever shared that I had to BEG her to take this picture!! πŸ™ˆShe was a woman determined to have her OWN career as an RN at Harlem Hospital in 1952 the year her first son was born (my father). She studied hard & made it real. She was a single mom.
Later, she married an Italian- American grocer (my grandfather) who in 1967 had a fruit & veggie stand in Harlem which surely wasn't the easiest storm to weather at that time in America. When he moved them to the suburbs of Long Island she had to get used to it because the house he bought her was smaller than her Harlem apt. she paid for on her OWN ❀️But u know behind all strong men there's an even stronger woman. She always stood by him.
She had such a generous heart & shared that home w/ 2 beautiful twin foster children who she then adopted. This is the soul she was & the soul that’s been infused inside of me.She was the most compassionate, intelligent & kind advocate anyone could dream to have.
She taught me everything about how to be a woman in the world.How to be both gentle & tough.How to demand respect by your stance & how to be independent yet co-dependent on those you love so reciprocity can be real! She always made me do reading & writing homework throughout the summers I stayed with her! πŸ“š She is one of the biggest reasons why I know intelligence is power!! So although the world still has a long way to go to make gender equality a reality, for woman to get the same pay, respect and opportunities as our male counterparts, and to ensure that education is as important for every girl EVERYWHERE, I have to say that because of this woman(and my Mother)I NEVER felt like I was inferior, or less capable or less intelligent.I knew from the minute I was born that women are the greatest gifts to humanity for without us, there would be nothing.So thank u Nana for taking this picture so I can always remember what u stood for, how much you’ve given to our family & how much u have meant to me!! #InternationalWomensDay #family #women #progress #love


This is my Mama. She is the fiercest woman I know! Look at that face! Gorgeous! Tough! No nonsense! A true lioness!! She will break down doors and tear down walls! Nobody stands in her way. I wonder if she knows that’s the power she showed me. I wonder if she knows that’s why I know how much power we hold as women. I wonder if she knows that that’s why when I asked my son Egypt this morning if women should be treated the same as men? He said, β€œNo! Better!” πŸ’―πŸ’―πŸ’― #InternationalWomensDay #Woman #Power #Honor

I was struck by this post by @4oremost today on the anniversary of the death of #TrayvonMartin
And for all the men and women, boys and girls that have been killed at the hand of a gun
More reminders of why #gunviolence can't be ignored and
Laws need to be reformed
To me, one of the ways that's actually gonna happen is voting for candidates that believe in these changes #Vote2018
