It’s been an emotional roller coaster for the residents of Seattle-Tacoma. Everyday we hear multiple reports of shootings, stabbings, murders and more. It’s hard to feel empowered during these times, yet the two cities have managed to come together to raise their voices against violent crimes.

On Sunday, May 25th, #CEASEFIRESeattle honored not only military fallen soldiers, but those who have fallen due to senseless deaths in our streets as well. Joined by Community Members, Civil Rights Activists and Indie Artists willing to spend their holiday weekend bringing awareness to a much needed conversation. How do you take your streets back? Some say by occupying them. And, therefore we did just that!!!

Columbia City Theater was filled with the positively energetic and conscious mind. Ready to set the stage in remembrance and dedication to getting active in our underserved communities. Outreaching to high risk youth and supplementing Summer Programming to engage the idle spirit.

ABOUT TIME!!! LUPITA NYONG’O is People’s World’s MOST Beautiful

 

LUPITA NYONG'O IS PEOPLE'S WORLD'S MOST BEAUTIFUL!!!
LUPITA NYONG’O IS PEOPLE’S WORLD’S MOST BEAUTIFUL!!!

SHE BAD in the most fabulous way!!! Waking up to the best news ever!!! I am so proud of all of Lupita’s accomplishments, she is truly a blessing for Black Little Girls and Black Women EVERYWHERE!!! 

I know first hand, how hard it is growing up in a world, where White is right and Light Skin is the next best thing. In my life, I’ve dealt w/ not fitting in because of my skin color, being called nigger and more. But, I swear moments like this, make it all worth it.

My mother, Charko is the Founder of Charko’s Vocational Education School of Fashion & Fitness Agency…Seattle’s FIRST Black Modeling School. I heard the painful stories of her being told, she could never become a model, because she was “Too Black”, “Lips Too Full” and “Hips Too Big”, yet she was determined to make it happen. I have always admired her tenacity and strength. She stayed rockin that succulent Dark Chocolate Skin w/ so much confidence, I vowed to be just like her.

It’s crazy, you don’t set out to be a role model, it just happens 🙂

PEOPLE you got it right this time!!!

Check out Lupita’s interview w/ People Magazine Here:

She may have won an Oscar for her role as the slave Patsey in Steve McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave and recently landed a contract with Lancôme Paris, but Lupita Nyong’o

“never dreamed” she would be touted as “Most Beautiful” for all the world to see.

“It was exciting and just a major, major compliment,” the 31-year-old says of gracing this year’s cover. And especially, “I was happy for all the girls who would see me on [it] and feel a little more seen.” 

Born in Mexico and raised in Kenya, Nyong’o first equated beauty with what she saw on television: “Light skin and long, flowing, straight hair,” she says. “Subconsciously you start to appreciate those things more than what you possess.” Her mother, Dorothy, who is the managing director and head of PR for the Africa Cancer Foundation, “always said I was beautiful,” Nyong’o adds. “And I finally believed her at some point.” 

As a teen, Nyong’o dyed her hair every color – except blonde – and even went as far as shaving her head bald. “It was very strange and very cold!” she says, laughing.

“It was scary but I like to dare myself.” 

Now she says the best compliments are “when I have been called beautiful with not one drop of makeup on,” she adds. “And also before I comb my hair or put on a pretty dress. Happiness is the most important thing.” 

JUST FAB!!!
JUST FAB!!!

Past covers have included, Halle Berry (1st Black Woman to become People’s Most Beautiful Woman), Beyonce and Denzel Washington.
