There is No Shade in True Beauty!

As we celebrate the stellar performance and Oscar win for  Lupita Nyong’o, here is an inspirational and poignant message that all of us need to take to heart!

It resonated so well with me as an African-American women who was raised in the 70s and 80s in a southern city where we Black women were and  are often marginalized and never seen to be beautiful, where the standard was always based in European sensibilities.  What a triumph, what a victory for us all!
