I grew up in Lorain County and she was our Nobel Laureate. Her evocations of Lorain in “The Bluest Eye” were as close to perfect as to how I experienced that city and its places.
Her cousin lived two doors down from us but I never had the opportunity to meet Toni Morrison.
Well, good news at last today! I'm so proud of these ladies for trying to work together and not do all that beef mess. Maybe, hopefully, Meg, Cardi, Nicki, Trina, etc, all the baddies talking that female empowerment and togetherness can happen. But can we kill the bitch this and that.

Push it, and real good at that!
Regarding this case, I hope they’re able to push it through they system quickly.

What a voice—so glorious and rich and full. A friend saw her show in New York and said it just blew him away.
I first became familiar with Angelique Kidjo back in 2000 when her song Agolo was the theme for the BBC World Service program “Every Woman”. It’s still one of my favorites, and the video is amazing.
Angelique Kidjo is THE SHIT. I first got wind of her in 2000 when I lived in Seattle. Gorgeous, super-talented sister.
If, like me, you spent a good part of your weekend tearfully watching Ava DuVernay’s masterful When They See Us on…
I’d spent two years on this earth when I met my paternal grandmother Julianna Oni for the first—and last—time. As I…
In the last few years at least, there has been some pushback against the prevailing notion of the “strong black…
JoAni Johnson stands only five feet, four-and-a-half inches tall, making her too short for most runways. Not to…
