Shero of the Week: Grace Jones

Grace

As with Carmen last week, do I even need to explain why???

The ORIGINAL weird, DGAF black woman!!

Rihanna, Gaga and all others can bow down to Ms. Grace.

 If you really need proof of her enduring bad-assery, check out the video below and tell me if you could perform that feat.

Shero of the Week: Annie Lennox

Annie

For her powerful voice.

For her bold lyrics and bold imagery.

For being a voice for the voiceless.

For this quote:

“There’s this youth culture […] it really discards people once they reach a certain age. I actually think that people are so powerful and interesting – women, especially – when they reach my age. We’ve got so much to say, but popular culture is so reductive that we just talk about whether we’ve got wrinkles, or whether we’ve put on weight or lost weight, or whether we’ve changed our hairstyle. I just find that so shallow.” ~Annie Lennox, turning 60.

Mr. Holder, I hope that your passing was easy and that you were surrounded by
love, loved ones, art, music, laughter, dance, performance, excellence, elegance, peace and more.
Your legacy is large. I will share it with all who will listen so that it may carry on.

Wishing his partner in all things, Carmen, endurance and strength.
And his son, Leo, with whom he had his last dance.
