Et si Malala venait à Paris … ? This is the question I want the officials around here asking, once they’re done with their constant stream of congratulatory platitudes championing women’s rights on Twitter and in the Press.

Ran into Pinay illustrator/artist Genevieve Santos (@lepetitelefant) at her SJ Made pop-up booth at Valley Fair today. We’ve been fans of her work for awhile, so it was great to meet her and have her do a drawing of us. I think she captured us perfectly. ☺️Thanks, Genevieve!

It figures that my husband finally has a chance to chat with Bryan Fuller and all he talks about is FOOD PORN.
"my husband" is me!
In my defense, my Internet presence revolves mainly around posting food porn on Instagram or on my blog, so it was only natural that we discussed food porn and not “Hannigraham.” :)
Poet and civil rights activist Maya Angelou passed away today at the age of 86, and it immediately brought me to the most memorable moment I have of her: An incredible episode of the great IFC show “Iconoclasts,” featuring Angelou and comedian Dave Chappelle. This was in 2006,…
A lot’s going to be said at Maya Angelou today. In 1994, she spoke at CSUN to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of student protests that eventually led to the formation of the school’s Pan African Studies department. This took place post-Northridge Earthquake, so her appearance help uplift the campus just as we started to rise above the destruction that surrounded us. I wish I could share some of the pictures I took that night with you, but they’ve never been digitized (and they’re at my parents house anyway).
One of my other favorite Maya Angelou moments is her Iconoclasts episode with Dave Chappelle. Dave is a lot more cerebral than his comedy lets on, so this pairing, while odd to many, was really a beautiful conversation between like-minded souls. This was a year after Dave emerged from seclusion after abruptly leaving The Chappelle Show and $50 million on the table, and Maya served as the elder sharing her life experiences and knowledge with Dave. In the video clip in this post, Maya tells Dave about her friendship with both Martin Luther King and Malcolm X (5:20), and why anger is okay, but not bitterness:
"Bitterness is like cancer — it eats upon the host. It doesn’t do anything to the object of its displeasure.”
Rest in Power, Maya.
