I spent Thursday evening in the company of splendid women, women of splendor in fact.
MSNBC’s Joy Ann Reid
My friends Elon Johnson and Dawn Julian.
And numerous more.
Thank you Nikki Giovanni and The Schomburg Center for bringing us all together in Harlem…
… for displaying your mean selfie game
… for reminding us that taking a knee is an act of love
… for being “honest” and not “confessional”
… for your appreciation of athletes and the significance of their voice and reminding us “that talent is important”
… for tearfully remembering your late student Matty at Virginia Tech and speaking at the convocation
… for ☛A GOOD CRY: WHAT WE LEARN FROM TEARS AND LAUGHTER
… for all of your poetry, writing advice and inspiration.
Pouring libations for the women of splendor that’ve transitioned and raising my cup [of coffee ☕] to the ones still splendidly here.
