Black History Sirens…

In honour of Black History Month, I will be posting images of beautiful black women, who have graced the stage, screen, catwalk and other media.  I think it’s important to show these images, because for the most part Black Women are not always portrayed in the most positive light .  We are beautiful and proud.  Most of us do have class.  Remember That!  Here’s the beginning… Enjoy!

How Beautiful….

These ladies look!  Queens of their domain. All of them regal and proud in their finery.  A friend of mine posted this on Facebook today, and I just had to share. The question my friend asked was, “What do you see when you look at this photo?”  What I saw was how proud they are, they look noble and confident. They also look as though they’ve seen a lot.  There is also an air of total grace, a sense of togetherness and a sense of family; whether they’re related or not, they’ll stick together through thick and thin.  As I said to my friend…  “I’d love to wear one of  these dresses with a pair of 5″ heels and call it a day” Maybe with my Jeffrey Campbell Lita shoes, don’t you think? Enjoy your Tuesday afternoon.

Proud black women in their finest!
