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!

 

Rock The Red Pump…

On March 10, the United States will recognize National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NWGHAAD). Launched by the Office of Women’s Health, NWGHAAD is a nationwide observance that encourages people to take action in the fight against HIV/AIDS and raise awareness of its impact on women and girls.

While great progress has been made in the area of HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment, women still represent 27% of all new AIDS diagnoses, with African-American women accounting for 66% of that group.

In observance of NWGHAAD, they are back with their 4th Annual Rock the Red Pump™ Campaign! he campaign’s goal is to generate conversation in blogosphere about the issue of HIV/AIDS and how it affects women. (please note text was taken from website.)

For more information go to: http://www.theredpumpproject.org/rock-the-red-pump/

I will be posting more about this campaign closer to the date.

This Morning I Heard…

About the “Obedient Wives” club in Malaysia, while listening to NPR radio this morning.  Are you serious!! This is yet another misinterpretation of a holy book. A local women’s group is preaching Polygamy and the obedience of wives to their husbands.  Apparently this is a good way to deal with the social issues blighting Malaysia and a way to help cut down on the rising divorce rate in that country.  This story was amazing and entertaining to a degree to listen to, I won’t go too much into the story here, but please take 5 minutes (actually 4:08) to listen to the story on NPR, it’s an interesting listen and will remind us of how fortunate we are in the western world to not be dictated to in this way.  We are free spirited, fabulous, and intelligent woman who are able to excercise our God given freewill.
