Soulcial Sunday – Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day to all the good mothers out there handling their business doing what mothers do. None of us are mothers but we see how hard mothers work to provide for their family and make sure everything is done. Motherhood is a thankless job that sometimes goes unnoticed but I want every mother knows you’re are appreciated every day.

Here’s a little laugh from our IG paying homage to Outkast for this oldie but goodie.

Happy Mother’s Day from the SDE team to you and yours.

Childish Gambino – This is America Music Video is not revolutionary art.

I can’t express how tired I am of seeing black death on my screens. I can’t seem to escape seeing a video of someone killing a Black Person, it’s even shown on the news on replay every hour. I am a Childish Gambino fan and I have to say this music video was disappointing to watch. I listened to the song before watching the video and I liked the song before the video but now I can’t stand to hear it.

I wonder if it still okay to mention the triggers this video may contain for some people even though it has well over 72 Million views which means there’s a chance you saw the video already and was introduced to the chaotic scenes of death, massacre, suicide and chaos all while black people dance in the foreground.

The one and only Danai Gurira play as Okoye in Black Panther, This will be about Okoye as much as possible because of the love I have for the character before the movie. Danai’s performance was so amazing bringing Okoye to life that at this point I don’t think I’ll ever become tired of seeing her beautiful face everywhere. Continue reading

Viola Davis

Viola Davis for Porter Edit Magazine

Viola Davis has always been an inspiration to me and nothing short of amazing. Viola is a successful woman in the entertainment world, her acting has been some of the most incredible performances we’ve seen in some time and she’s vocal in her activism¬†about equal pay and women’s rights which made me put her on a pedestal I can’t seem to take her off of.
