A few months after the summer cookouts are over and right before hibernation mode kicks in, there’s one last annual turn-up that’s a staple of black culture. It’s that time of the year known as homecoming season—an important time, filled with step shows, galas, panel discussions and more.
It’s a known fact that if there’s a party and music is playing, there will be a few aunties in the room doing the two-step, which can range from funky, freestyle Mary J. Blige to subtle, yet sassy Anita Baker. You may even hear an auntie say “Ohhhhh, this my jam” as she proceeds to sing the words, which may or may not…
Many say that Gucci Mane has had the best glow up over the past couple of years and some would argue that the win for best glow up belongs to Cardi B—both of which are valid.
When it heats up outside and the sun shines on you, making that melanin glow even more, you know it’s officially that time—cookout season.
