You might as well be sleeping under a rock if you haven’t heard of Lupita Nyong’o. The recent Oscar winner has clearly made a name for herself not just because of her talent but also because of her undeniable grace, style, and beauty. I have been a fan of Ms. Nyong’o since I first came across here work, but as a educated woman of color with a background in fashion and media I must say I tip my hat to this woman for addressing an issue that is still very real….the image of “beauty” The below video is from her speech at the Essence Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon . I invite you to watch it and be moved…I was….and will continue to be.
With Love from Me to Hue!
