The struggle for gender equality cannot succeed without the participation of men. This #WomensHistoryMonth I wanted to give the floor to men who wished to share who their favorite women in history are, and why. Let’s celebrate some of the women whose powerful legacies have affected the lives of men across the globe, and across time. Read more in our March #LoveOurGirls newsletter which is now live. Link is in the bio.

Heartfelt thanks to @Essence for honoring me at this year’s #BlackWomeninHollywood Awards! The entire event was wrapped in the warmth of sisterhood that you’ve espoused since your inception. Being recognized alongside these incredible women -  @lenawaithe, @tessamaethompson, and @tiffanyhaddish - was an added treat.

Special salute to the #Essence leadership team: @vanessa_kdeluca, @corimurray & #MichelleEbanks. I’m grateful for the space you’re filling in this world.
Happy Birthday to the beauteous, incomparable, indomitable @lupitanyongo. I am so blessed to call you my friend.
"There are some esteem issues that come with the assault of being colonized and being dominated and being marginalized....You have to get to the point where it’s like this is not truth, and consequently it is no longer going to be my truth. And now I’m going to embrace the power of who I am and where I’m from." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
