“I have the greatest pride in the color of my skin, my features and my history”: Where we come from: the history of Afro-descendants in Brazil

Amazing! Tech in #2018 #DNA #AfricanAncestry 🙂

Black Women of Brazil

CAPA

Note from BW of Brazil: It’s an experience many of us have had. That moment when you start to think, where did I come from? Although growing up n Detroit and seeing that all of my family and friends were black, it didn’t really provide me with a deeper response to the question. I got some of that answer in knowing that both my parents’ family came from the south of the United States, but even so, that still wasn’t enough. My first memory of being exposed to the deeper side of the question came when I saw the TV mini-series Roots. It was a shocking experience as no one had ever told me about the history of black Americans in the era of slavery. I went to a Catholic school and certainly none of my classmates not the teachers revealed this piece of history.As I watched the series show black…

CindyLevy, Paris

Awesome duo! 🙂

Y'en a pas deux comme moi

Cindy Levy est une toute nouvelle marque arrivée sur le marché, déjà vendue sur Asos Marketplace.

La créatrice, qui se prénomme Cindy prône tout ce qui est « improbable ». Elle utilise divers matériaux pour la création de ses vêtements tels que du cuir, du plastique, etc.

Ses créations sont en général de couleur neutre, blanche, grise ou noire, bref, des couleurs sobres. C’est pourquoi, je qualifierais son style comme étant chic mais très urbain.

Cindy Levy est une marque très originale dont les créations sont uniques. Sa créatrice se bat contre le jugement d’autrui et le regard des autres. Selon elle, la mode n’est pas le style, car le style est intemporel tandis que la mode se démode.

Nous avons eu la chance, ma sœur et moi, de shooter pour cette créatrice talentueuse avec quelques looks de sa collection.

Voici quelques clichés du shooting, et si vous aimez ses créations, shoppez-les…

Lauryn Hill Covered The Hell Out Of Nina Simone’s ‘Feeling Good’ On ‘The Tonight Show’

Never ever count a voice out like Lauryn Hill´s …unless you want to look like a complete idiot…She’s feeling Good!

UPROXX

Lauryn Hill stopped by The Tonight Show for a live performance of Nina Simone’s “Feeling Good.” After remembering some of her live show mishaps, I was a little worried about how this was going to go down. But those fears were for naught, as her performance here is just as gripping if not more so than the studio version.
