That Poet Girl

Im just a poor lil rich girl with many ideas, with a couple of degrees, and millions of dreams. Trying to figure out the purpose of life.

The fabulous Jasmine Guy recently had her 52nd birthday. Actor, director, dancer, artist and writer. And um…gorgeous! I read her book Afeni Shakur: Evolutionary of A Revolutionary about Tupac’s mother. Very honest read. I can still hear her saying “Dwaayyyyne” on A Different World as “Whitley Gilbert.” And by the way, I just learned that Hulu Plus has all of A Different World in HD. Winning.

There’s a stereotype that black people are lazy. I don’t know if that’s true, but I know white people went all the way to Africa to get out of doing work.
