Had the opportunity to catch @theofficialchrislee in concert in #atlanta Huge talent...but since he was in @hamiltonmusical I had no doubt he wouldn’t deliver. Check out his ep available on all digital outlets. #music#hamiltonmusical#atl
Appointment television. The new #watchingoprah installation at @nmaahc is something you simply MUST experience! If ever there were a demonstration of how limitless life can be this is it. Take heed of your calling and fly. Thank you @Oprah. Your inspiration is relentless...and we are better because of it. #oprah#museum#travel#history
#throwbackthursday chatting w/ @oprah in #chicago on one of many occasions where I’ve been blessed to soak up some of her wisdom & inspiration. Tomorrow a special exhibit opens @nmaahc titled #watchingoprah This commemorative exhibit will run through 2019. I’m honored to just be in her orbit. What i have to remember most is when she said to me “you’re not in this room by accident. You’re here because you are supposed to be here.” I receive and honor that. Keep striving fam. Honor your platform no matter how big or small it is. You matter...now more than ever! #dc#oprah#museum#history#travel#goodvibes#goodtimes#tbt
About last nite.... @jussiesmollett rolled through #Atlanta with his #sumofmymusictour I’m so proud of this young man. The music and showmanship are truly on point! Don’t miss him when he comes to your city! #stlouis you’re up next week! @junesdiary opens the show and sets the bar high. I had no idea I’d fall in love with then the way i did. There was a surprise performance from #rocnation artist @victoryboyd. I’m looking forward to hearing more from her! In addition to the show there were backstage laughs with @sampsonmccormick @activistfreak @frankgatson @cynthiabailey10 #rhoa#music#empire#comedy
I fell completely in love with the ladies of @junesdiary tonight. Their #Atlanta performance DELIVERED! In addition to being outstanding talents, they’re also incredibly sweet, humble and FUN young ladies. Thank you @frankgatson for everything. Amazing night! #sumofmymusictour#junesdiary#atl#music
Another truth omitted from America’s revisionist #history . #Repost @whitneyplantation ・・・
Today we honor and remember the sacrifices of our military men and women. On May 1st, 1865, over 1000 newly freed African Americans, U.S. colored troops, and a small group of White Charleston residents commemorated what would later become Memorial Day.
This group came together to remove the remains of 257 Union soldiers from a Confederate mass grave and created proper burial grounds for the soldiers. Together they sang hymns, set flowers, and gave readings in honor of the soldiers’ sacrifice. #memorialday#whitneyplantation#lestweforget#americanhistory#sacrifice
Attending a screening of the latest installment of #loveworks w/ @juanandgee @kiacomedy is in the episode and needless to say is hilarious!!! Dr @cleomanago also imparts wisdom and helps creates a very emotional dialogue on race.
