Goodafternoon! friends, supporters, followers, fellow bloggers, blogger readers, family, critics and spectators!!! This week has been a great week for Black Women!!! For many reasons!!! Starting with the showing of the Black Girls Rock Awards on BET, Sunday, November 3, 2013! Honoring and featuring SOOO many accomplished women in African American History in the present and the past!
Plus, just today, it was announced that The Woman in Florida who was falsely encriminated in Florida for protecting herself, was released today!!! She can finally go home to her kids! Hallelujah! Thank you Jesus!!! All thanks to us, good people, sticking up and spreading the awareness! This is proof that we can move mountains if we stand by eachother! Also congratulations to Harriet Tubman for being acknowledged a day in Tennessee!
Scandal leading actress, Kerry Washington, also made headlines with her wonderful performance on Saturday Night Live! We love you Kerry!!! Kudos!!!
Last but not least the Premiere of the Best Man Holiday was last night!!! We are more than proud of the cast for bringing this wonderful film back to life for us!!!
I haven't had the chance to catch the "Black Girls Rock" show in its entirety but just hearing all the positive feedback about the show did something to my soul! I love when women motivate, and lift eachother up! Instead of pushing each other down! Sometimes we can be eachothers worst enemies! So to see a show that encourages lifting each other up, Whoo, it excites me!
The Ladies of Girlfriends reunited to pay tribute to the The creator of their show Mara Brock Akil.
Then there was this wonderful article that circulated the web. It's an article from a well respected editor of chief, who had a lot to say about the criticism and negative feedback, about the "Black Girls Rock" segment. She explains why there is a show and why it's needed!
Kudos to this lady! Job well done! We thank you!!! It always makes me happy to see there are still open minded people out there in the world! Check out the article here: http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/4214132
The same day of the "Black Girls Rock" award show, my best friend, Model and Former Miss Black Tennessee, Lorean Mays, announced her second segment of "The Sister Chat" panel at the Chattanooga Downtown Library. Flyers were uploaded onto the internet, and the movement to spread the word of the panel started!
The Panel will include real women, such as myself, my best friend, and other women who have accomplished various/different goals in our communities!
The panel will include stories, and girl talks about real black women issues! Events like this are done in many other cities, but very rare in Chattanooga, so hopefully this will start a movement bigger than us in Chattanooga.
Hope to see some of you there! The event will be November 23, 2013 at 2pm at the Chattanooga Downtown Library Auditurium.
So as the week got kicked off, We at Edwina LaShan, got in the spirit of the Black Girls Rock movement and decided to upload photos of some of our favorite black girls who rock!!! Expecially after seeing my Bestie Lorean Mays post the question of "who were some of our favorite Black Girls Who Rock?" It didn't take long for me to decide to Highlight some of my Favorite, Inspirational Black Girls Who Rock!!!
Check out Some of the photos below! XoXo! Kudos!!! Hope you enjoy!!! 💋
