It's that time of year again, where I get to work with Macy's and meet some of my favorite celebs and talk about style and the future of black women in the arts as it relates to fashion and history. I kind of love this about my job. I get to mix my favorites subjects, with my love of Black History and have the opportunity to hob-knob with women I've admired and watched grow up over the years. You may remember last year, I met June Ambrose and Johnetta Boone. I've continued to be inspired by both women ever since so I'm really looking forward to this year's event as well.
Seriously, I remember seeing Jurnee on "The Cosby Show" and in "Eve's Bayou" and thought she was just the cutest. Having watched her grow into a young woman it's been fun to see her style evolve as she has. Monica will also be in the house and I'm SUPER geeked. I've been a LONG time fan of hers. "One of Dem Days" was my JAM. But with her being a mother as well I'm interested to see how she's managed to maintain her personal style, celebrity persona and mom life while all in the public eye. Anywho - I'm excited to head back to Macy's in Baldwin Hills to hang out with these ladies for a conversation on all things African American and I can't wait to share it all with you.
So if you're local come join Jurnee, Monica (and me!) and celebrate Black History Month with Macy's as they salute these rising icons of African American culture at Baldwin Hills next Thursday February 18th at 6:30pm. It's always fun to get to see actors in a more intimate element and hear their take on what's going on in the entertainment industry and how they manage so I do hope you'll come out and hang for a bit!
