In documenting community, motherhood, childhood and joy, sometimes all the elements come together unexpectedly. This mother of 13 (soon-to-be great grandmother) and this young boy live in the same building (which happens to be where I grew up) but did not know each other. Our children are #soeasytolove ❤️#amotherslove #motheringinthemovement #motherhood #blackjoy #blackboymagic #ittakesavillage #protectourchildren #childhooduninterrupted #childhood

#humblebrag I still get “early 30’s” even though I was around for Watergate (do the math) 🤔 I never take credit though. I owe it all to my mama, whose skin at her advanced age -which I’m not gonna spill (I ain’t crazy!) is flawless! Happy Mother’s Day Laurel Yvonne. You may not have many worry wrinkles, but your kids know what you’ve endured to be here. You will forever be our hero ✊🏾😘❤️ #happymothersday #blackmoms #motherhood #motheringinthemovement #nofilter #notouchups #blackdontcrack

I love this pic so much! It so beautifully captures the pulsating self-loving vibes we were feeling after watching reflections of our lives, our voices, and our brilliance on screen in Mr. Soul! directed by Melissa Haizlip (orange dress) and Sam Pollard. Plus the colour palette is very Janet Jackson’s That’s the Way Love Goes video 😍✊🏾💃🏾 #hotdocs25 #maliksidibevibes #latergram #tbt #mrsoul #documentary #powertothepeople #soul Thanks for the share Dez 😘

Dear non-BIPOC friends, if you’re still a little unclear about how to identify WHITE PRIVILEGE or stubbornly in denial about its existence, ask yourself if in your wildest imaginings you could ever conjure a scenario where you’re being arrested in a Starbucks for WAITING ON A FRIEND! Yeah well...that shit happened. Look up the viral vid. If it doesn’t infuriate you, you’re willfully numb and therefore complicit 🤷🏾‍♀️ P.S. Canada is NOT immune to this crap 😡 #thisisexhausting #waitingwhileblack #boycottstarbucks #coffeeshopsitin #takeupspace #gettingcoffeewhileblack #supportblackbusinesses #iprefermycoffeeshopblack

My car’s busted lower lip. We got sucker punched (rear-ended) by a Jeep while minding our own business at a red light 🥊🚦😠 #youshouldseetheotherguy #actuallytheotherguyistotallyfine #fenderbender #donttextanddrive #outinthesestreets
