My Sunday Magic

My Black Girl Magic Sunday:  is a concept and movement that was popularized by CaShawn Thompson in 2013 who tweets at @thepbg.  This concept was born as a way to celebrate the beauty, power and resilience of black women as described by Julee Wilson from the Huffington Post.  Thompson went further to explain our global community of black women are preserving despite the adversity.  Inspiring Thompson to spread the concept of #blackgirlsaremagic.  From the likes of Corinne Bailey Rae, Solange Knowles and ballerina Misty Copeland are bringing into effect the intention that #blackgirlsaremagic.  As well the 45th POTUS Barack Obama he too has discussed the idea in an interview with Maya Rhodan for Time and Essence magazines.  See, here is why we’re magic, mainstream news outlets often publish ill-gotten images of women of color according to Oscar nominated Viola Davis and Superstar Serena Williams don’t fit the “ideal” image of beauty and femininity. Yet, our style, our look, our beauty, our hair, our lips our original.  Our beauty is authentic, original and derived from mother earth and yes we are often imitated but never duplicated and or beauty is bad to the bone. Our essence, style, grace and spirit make us mysterious and yasss, magical baby.  It is G_d given for he makes no mistakes.  May your #blackgirlmagic shine everyday.
