F.Y.I. Friday Nov. 4
Well this week like any other has been filled with so much celebrity gossip. It’s now time to read what happened outside of that.
- First I want to recap all that Women Are Gamechangers is doing so far. Sunday we introduced Soul Lifting Sunday. Each week you can get inspiration to help prepare you mentally to take on anything that comes your way. Don’t forget every Monday a new Gamechanger of the Week video is posted. This week’s Gamechanger is Veronica Young. Our wonderful health and fitness weekly posts are full of things you can incorporate into your daily life without changing too much of your routine. Each Tuesday tips, exercises, health information or healthy recipes will take center stage. Check out this week’s post Cardio part 1. This past Wednesday in personal reflections was our most talked about post to date. If you haven’t read it, go ahead and read it Society is Wedding Obsessed Instead of Marriage Obsessed. Because next week I’ll continue to speak on the topic of relationships. November has begun a new challenge. Each month a challenge will be presented to help you on your journey to become the gamechanger you ARE meant to be. This month’s challenge is 30 Days of Purposeful Thankfulness. Find something everyday you can be thankful for. So as you can see there is a lot to look forward to everyday on our blog. We want to know what else would you like to see on this blog?
- December 10 & 11 Nzuri Natural Hair Health and Beauty Showcase will take center stage in Houston, TX. I’m blogging for the event. Hope to see you there. Check out the promo video I made. Next week I’ll post my top 10 things I’m looking forward to seeing and doing at Nzuri.
- Women War and Peace is a five-part series airing Tuesday nights on PBS. Next week will be the final episode. This series has been so insightful on what challenges women face in other countries trying to attain peace not just for their families but for their communities and countries as well. I have thoroughly enjoyed every episode so far. Check your local PBS station to see what time the final part airs. Her Film does a wonderful job each week recapping the episode as well as giving information and reviews on films and television that are about, touch or involve women.
- I was reading the blog One Brown Girl the other day and came across a great initiative she is taking part in. She is part of The Passport Project which is a philanthropic initiative that will gift 100 girls with their very first passports within the next 18 months! I think it’s a great idea. I was 20 when I got my passport.
- The Truth About Black Women and Marriage is a project that Tami of What Tami Said is doing. She is looking for any woman who is willing to speak with her and be a part of the project. Go to http://www.whattamisaid.com/ for more details.
- With all the hoopla about divorce this week, I wanted to spotlight Black and Married with Kids. Whether you are married or not, this site has valuable information when it comes to relationships and marriage. I’ve found great posts on there. It’s a wonderful site. Check it out.
- Black and Missing but Not Forgotten raises awareness of the racial disparities in mainstream media’s reporting of missing persons of color and to support the families and loved ones by providing an outlet for spreading the word through technology and print. Everyday people go missing but often unnoticed. Take a look at the site and pass along some posts and hopefully we can help reunite families.
- Sunday, November 6 Black Girls Rock! airs. They are a youth empowerment and mentoring organization established to promote the arts for young women of color, as well as to encourage dialogue and analysis of the ways women of color are portrayed in the media. I enjoyed watching last year’s show and can’t wait for this year’s show. It airs on BET this Sunday. The hosts are Tracee Ellis Ross and Regina King. Shirley Ceaser, Angela Davis, Laural Richie, Taraji P. Henson, Imani Walker, Malika Sadda Saar and Tatyana Ali are the award recipients. Tune in Sunday.
