If you have not read Baldwin… you have not read about real life! – @Efabulous1


What we get today out of reading him is so much more than just eloquent and riveting writing; James Baldwin is also a history teacher. His fiction and nonfiction recount the stories and struggles of African Americans in the first half of the 20th century, and Giovanni’s Room stands as a landmark novel in its representation of homosexuality in a way that seems neither exploitative nor like a simple plot device. 

Introducing Flavorwire Author Club’s February Selection: James Baldwin

So many countless times, I have said this quietly in the car.  The overwhelming load of single motherhood has humbled me, scared me, inspired me, motivated me and sadden me.  I feel as though unlucky in keeping a bad marriage, but Blessed that I was a loving, kind and motivated mom through it all.  

If today you feel that somehow you have fallen short, please do not beat yourself up… YOU ARE DOING THE BEST YOU CAN. 


I got this piece of “soul beauty” from … go visit them and hug your soul! 

NAPCAN, “Children See. Children Do”

As a parent, you are a role model. You are in a role of influence. You must think wisely about your actions. If your children, see your actions they repeat them. They learn by example. NAPCAN, “Children See. Children Do” – YouTube

Born Freda Josephine McDonald on June 3, 1906, in St. Louis, Missouri, Josephine Baker spent her youth in poverty before learning to dance and finding success on Broadway. In the 1920s she moved to France and soon became one of Europe’s most popular and highest-paid performers. She worked for the French Resistance during World War II, and during the 1950s and ‘60s devoted herself to fighting segregation and racism in the United States.

Josephine Baker died of a cerebral hemorrhage on April 12, 1975, and was buried with military honors.

Currently reading: Ghubar Magazine’s Super5th Anniversary issue.

Celebrating the magazine’s fifth birthday, editor-in-chief and founder Sarah Diouf reflects on the past half-decade of Ghubar’s existence, starting with the pivotal life-altering moment that changed everything for her and birthed the magazine. In it, she also features other inspiring women: Mexican-born Kenyan actress Lupita Nyong’o whose been leaving us all in tears with her award acceptance speeches, Nigerian best-selling writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie who made it on to Beyonce’s latest album without singing a single note, and pieces from up-and-coming award-winning South African designer Sindiso Khumalo‘sAW13 collection.

Another highlight for me in this issue is the fashion editorial shot in Dakar, Senegal, Diouf’s country of origin, and the empowering sports-meets-women-in-dresses-and-heels photoshoot. 

Create the habits of being loving, being kind and being excellent and you will see a big change. #MommyFab #TwoDopeMoms #Efabulous1 #motivation #pushforward #habit
