So many people were following the recent post about Amber Rose and the Kardashians that we were gifted some great (and not so great) feedback. Many members were puzzled about why we would even mention Amber Rose’s throw-down with Kardashian-Jenner-West family. Kim Kardashian isn’t black and many consider Amber Rose to be white, right?

Well, I have to admit I’m shocked at this one. The American Academy of Pediatrics is now recommending that teenagers be given prescriptions for Plan B, an emergency contraceptive that generally reduces the fertilization of egg and sperm with hopes that the measure will reduce teen pregnancy.

On location at the film screening and panel discussion of “The Souls of Black Girls”, BB&W had the opportunity to speak with Panel member, the lovely Demetria Irwin, former Managing Editor of MadameNoire.com and mentor at Girls Write Now. We discussed role models, media images, family, and of course, writing. Its time for black women to start telling our own stories and defining our sexuality. Ms. Irwin is definitely one of the leaders to take up that great task!
OMG I’m doomed to hell for laughing at this till I peed my pants.

A blend of spices, coconut milk and vegetables flavor tender chunks of boneless beef ribs,served with white rice, coconut and cashews. This is from my late wife’s personal collection if traditional African cooking. It was sent to her grandmother by a relative who visited there in the 1920’s.

If you haven’t seen this movie yet, you’d better hurry up and go. It’s sure to be on the short list for Academy Awards. Daniel Day-Lewis plays our 16th president so convincingly you’d swear old Abe rose from his grave and possessed him. Remember Lewis’ brash, assholiness in Gangs of New York? Well, he’s nothing like that in Lincoln. His voice is so meek and sweet, and he spits parables like Jesus.
Check out why Tracy Renee Jones thinks some black women get prickle when someone has something nice to say.
Recently, I was on location at the A.M.E. Zion Church on the Hill in Harlem to attend a panel discussion and film screening of the “Souls of Black Girls.” Negative media representation of black females and other women of color is nothing new to the BB&W community, but this news documentary was very refreshing in that opened doors to the minds of younger girls and teenagers and their critique of the media.
