2018 IS BRINGING NEW HOPE: "A NEW DAY IS ON THE HORIZON."
Happy New Year!! I'm not sure about you, but I'm excited for 2018 and all of her blessings. I hope your celebration of the New Year was just as wonderful as mine. I call her the year of manifestations!! 2018 started with a refreshing outlook of hope, progression and a heart full of gratitude.
I normally never have any time to watch TV or keep up with my latest shows, but chile! I'm so glad I did this pass weekend. Oprah Winfrey accepted her Cecil B. DeMille Award on Sunday night at the Golden Globes with a message to the young girls watching: "A new day is on the horizon."
The media mogul and many A-list actresses decided to represent Time's Up, which displayed the all-black fashion movement, in raising awareness of sexual harassment occurring outside of Hollywood.
"So I want tonight to express gratitude to all the women who have endured years of abuse and assault because they, like my mother, had children to feed and bills to pay and dreams to pursue," she said. "They're the women whose names we'll never know."
In her speech, Winfrey highlighted the story of Recy Taylor, a black woman whose 1944 rape by six men did not lead to any convictions. Taylor passed away last month at the age of 97.
The message was so powerful and something that we all need to hear. I salute you Ms. Winfrey, in finding the courage to speak about the fight. Can we just elect her as President?!
Golden Globes last night, #TIMESUP! all black affair was definitely represented on the red carpet. Check out some of my favorite looks from the night.
