I am doing my best to introduce my daughter to the wonderful healing gifts of yoga! It’s a sacred movement that becomes a spiritual practice and heals the body, mind and spirit in the process. She showed me Janelle Monae’s Yoga video last night and I could only chuckle. It was only two weeks ago I was showing her Villa Lewaro, the shack to mansion hair-care business legacy of Madam CJ Walker (b.December 23, 1867) aka Sarah Breedlove from the cottonfields and washrooms aka “The First Female American Millionaire”; the Mother of “I got my start by giving myself a start!” All during the most terrorized decades of Jim Crow she and others like her prospered to achieve and give back to their community, providing employment, education, homes, beauty, culture and way to make it out of slavery consciousness.
Kudos, fist pumps, Ase’s and more Love to Ms. Janelle Monae! Artists like these are needed for the consciousness of our children, to help shape their lies and perceptions of Self and their World. Let the rebirth begin…
Black Women, Yoga and Healing!
