BGR 2017: Celebration in Pictures!

The Black Girls Rock 2017 celebration took place on Saturday, 5 August, but you wouldn’t know it unless you had marked the schedule on your respective calendars! I found little coverage and virtually no articles about this event, but I can’t say that I’m surprised – par for the course, sad to say.

In light of that, here are a few pictures with some positive, uplifting quotes for those of us who are overlooked and under-represented on a daily basis!

Actress Cris Vianna and the importance of having black dolls; even with them being rare in Brazil, she has a collection of about 60-70 black dolls!

I was fortunate to have at least three Black dolls when I was a kid! They are becoming more and more available to children worldwide, and that’s excellent.

Black Women of Brazil

Note from BW of Brazil: One of these days I must meet the actress Cris Vianna! I’m really not much into what Brazil has to offer in terms of its media, but I would love to sit and pick Cris’s brain for an hour or two. She is one of the most beautiful women on television plus, even not necessarily coming across as a militant, she strikes me as someone who really “gets it”. What I mean is, she isn’t afraid to speak on issues of race, she always represents black beauty well on the small screen, has been in a long-term relationship with a very dark-skinned black man for a number of years and now I learn that she is an avid collector of black dolls!

Yes, I’m Pagan…

…I have considered myself an agnostic, polytheist pagan with nihilist tendencies for most of my life. That consideration is also wrapped up in a healthy, cynical sense of humour. Still, as I surf the blog-o-sphere I have reached an undeniable conclusion: I’m not Wiccan because witches all seem to be Anglo lesbians – I am not. The same goes for why I will never be accepted as a ‘real’ feminist, and why I don’t fall in with any cliques or clubs. I like my individuality, and if I’m not accepted for not walking in lock-step with everyone else, then so be it. Goose-stepping with everyone else has never been my thing, anyway!

My ‘puter will be ready by Saturday, so I’ll be working on a few posts to get me through to the start of the weekend. In the meantime, enjoy these memes that I found…they are truer to my beliefs (or lack thereof) than anything!

I used to be “loyal to a fault” – now, loyalty must be earned, like everything else that matters!

Positive Quote of the Day ~ May 28th

Yep – these are tenets I live by…and I’m told that I’m “harsh” or “have a chip on my shoulder!”
I have always been myself – I really don’t want to be anyone else!
