🙌🏽 All I can say is WOWWW!!! Look at this beautiful woman Ericka Hart. The heart of a woman is so powerful!! Stories like hers continue to remind us to love ourselves and our journeys as they are and also to go and get checked and break the taboos surrounding breast cancer. I just learned that African Americans have a 42% higher mortality rate because we don't get an opportunity for early diagnosis or the right treatment. WHAT!!! This makes her message all the more important. Thank you @ihartericka for sharing your beauty and wisdom and journey with us! 😘😘💪🏽💪🏽✊🏽✊🏽 #breastcancer #breastcancerawareness #getchecked . . . Read Ericka's story here 😍 ... "A child saw me topless this weekend at #M4BW and said, "She's broken!" I'm going to keep taking my top off until the system is fixed and even little kids recognize this as whole. (And I kinda agree haha!)"
There’s so much I didn’t know that women who are incarcerated have to deal with... like being shackled to a BED while giving BIRTH!!! Woooowwww!! 😥😥 • • • For too long, WOMEN, and the unique challenges we face, have been neglected by our prison system. That changes NOW. ✊🏽✊🏽 We Are Here Movement has teamed up with cut50 + Van Jones to support Senators Cory Booker and Elizabeth Warren’s #DignityAct for Incarcerated Women. A bill that is on the floor right now and needs the support of American people to pass!!! Join us👉🏽👉🏽 DignityAct.org. Senator Chuck Grassley, do you hear us?

I’ve never really shared this but my mother is a breast cancer survivor. Breast cancer affects us all, and that’s why I’m joining my sis Stella McCartney in starting a conversation and encouraging every woman to go get checked. I’m showing my support by wearing Stella’s beautiful Ophelia Whistling lingerie set.💪🏽♀️ A percentage of all proceeds are donated to the Memorial Sloan Kettering Breast Examination Center in Harlem. Head to my site to learn more about how to get involved. 💖💖👉🏽 bit.ly/AK_BCAwareness

Up from under the debris Out from the worst tragedy We plant the seed Wondering what color it will be Watering our tears For 16 years And I've never seen petals shine so brightly Let's sip the nectar slowly And continuously We rise We bloom We blossom This is for all the suffering we will never forget, the lives lost From 9-11 to today, may we come together in times of struggle And continue to rise, bloom and blossom #Remembering911 #NeverForget
My sister Latham Thomas has a new book dropping this September I'm so excited about called OWN YOUR GLOW. It's all about uplifting and loving ourselves, embracing rituals and standing in our power. I love how Latham is leading a movement in women reclaiming self-care, slowing down and becoming more intentional in how we move through the world. (I NEED it!!;-) This is a must have and a must read! You can pre-order on Amazon or support your local bookstore by pre-ordering there or at www.ownyourglowthebook.com 🙏🏽#ownyourglow #ownyourglowthebook #graftz

All Children should have a field of dreams to play in They should be safely wrapped in the security of the endless potential within them They should be free to crawl through the tunnels of life we use to find ourselves Without having to worry about the rescinding of their human rights Children should be able to color outside the lines, make a beautiful mess and create their own lives They should be free to laugh and live without walls, borders, bans or repeals #DefendDACA #IStandWithTheDreamers #DACA #WeAreHere
We are higher than hate Higher than bigotry Bigger than the small minds That believe in white supremacy There's only one race The HUMAN race Flesh on the outside blood on the inside Take off your face And feel with your heart Take out your eyes And see with your heart Unlearn the lies and Know with your heart Unlearn the lies ..... Start with our kids Teach them the truth There is only one race The HUMAN race There is only one truth thats Love And The only way to Truly see each other Is to take off your face And Feel with your heart Take out your eyes And See with your heart Love everyone like you want to be loved Know in your heart We are the same my beloved This is the truth let it live in you This is the truth let it live... #loveonly #unlearnthelies #charlottesville
