I hope you’re living a life you’re proud of. If not, start over. It’s never too late.
It’s finally here! A few months ago, a bunch of friends and I got together to have real conversations about changing the world, conversations that you don’t see on mainstream TV with voices that are rarely heard: The voices of the ppl who are DOING the work, not just commenting on it. The result is 6 episodes of @theassemblytv hosted by myself and @rosariodawson. This space was an experiment - the culmination of two years of dialogue and work with ppl behind the scenes - some credited here and some who have gone on to do even more amazing things. I hope this project inspires you to not just talk but to listen, not just observe but to do, and not just wish but to actually try to make the things you want to see in the world. Check it out on Tuesday nights on @FreeSpeechTV (Direct TV, Apple TV, Roku etc)
This weekend, I had the pleasure of speaking at #UnitedStateofWomen moderating the final panel before (and on the same stage!) as my forever FLOTUS, Michelle Obama. But would you believe me if I told you that she wasn’t even the best part The best part was being surrounded by 5,000 women - full of passion, determination, joy, bravery and brilliance. Old friends, new faces, and a community that represented every walk of life imaginable. Thanks, @usowomen for the invite to talk about the power of story and to hold space with my fellow dreamers. I came away not just hopeful, but more ready to build a new world than ever before. #usow2018 #thefutureisfemale #blackgirlmagic
Spent yesterday celebrating my Poodah. Was so great to see her in a room full of love, surrounded by people who realize just how special she is. Thanks to all of the family and friends who helped make it such a beautiful day. Countdown to the wedding begins... #WillEubieMine #sisters #bridetribe
First weekend home in awhile, finally exploring our new neighborhood. Sundays are for worship, farmers markets, new brunch spots, new SoundCloud mixes and being grateful for this beautiful city of ours. 📷: @estevanoriol
#TBT A few years ago on a special episode of 106th & Park w Daniel Maree, founder of @millionhoodies4justice talking about how young black & brown people were tired of being killed by police and were fighting back. 2 nights ago, a friend texted me at 10 pm driving to South LA to stand with the community after a 16 year old black man named Anthony Weber had been shot and killed by police, his body left in the street for hours. This march towards justice is slow. And sometimes it feels like nothing has changed. But it ain’t over. And I still believe that we will win.
Me in the airport, finally heading home today. ATL you have been lovely but I'm on my way to 80 degree weather and my own bed. (h/t @carmen_berkley)
#TBT to this past weekend. Nine years and counting with this crew of leaders, innovators, thinkers, creatives, entrepreneurs, activists and true friends. I am a part of many tribes. Only one could get me to stay in brick cold NYC in January. #dot2dot
I have spent most of the past 5 days on airplanes and in the back of taxis. I is tiiiiired. But I'm alive, grateful to be doing things that I love, my hair is especially laid and God is good. Happy Wednesday, y'all.
