Women In The Making: Tomorrow’s History Today (W.I.M.) is the health and lifestyle radio show that highlights the views, perspective, questions, goals and accomplishments of today’s girl. The show features snapshots of young women on their roller coaster journey to womanhood and the influences - environmental, emotional, social - they will inevitably incur. Each show focuses on a social topic and features a discussion with a young lady that has demonstrated leadership in that area along with a ‘shero’ that has expertise on the issue. The hour-long show features music, merit-based contests, giveaways and helpful tips at the end of every show. As the latest form of ‘edutainment,’ W.I.M. addresses many of the traditional issues explored in women’s talk shows and allows for age-appropriate discussions. Not your grandma’s ‘cawfy tawk’ of angst and complaint, W.I.M. offers the opportunity to be proactive to educate and encourage girls to use their resources to make healthy choices in their young lives. As the village that raises the child, we have the opportunity to use today’s multi-media frenzy to prompt and participate in a dialogue that can effect change.

OMG! #AnthonyBourdain was living the life of Riley, man - beautiful food, international travel, fulfilling work, telling the stories of marginalized people around the world, breaking bread with Barack Obama - and HE took his own life. What can we expect for people who are marginalized and hopeless? 😢 #MentalHealth #UniversalHealthCare #PreventionBeforeTreatment

Opinion | Jesse Jackson: How Dr. King Lived Is Why He Died

Dr. King was a radical, ecumenical, antiwar, pro-immigrant and scholarly champion of the poor. He wasn’t simply a “peace loving” non-threatening Black man. He was murdered by #whitesupremacists. If you, in any way, support this current administration, please keep Dr. King’s name outta ya mouth. #MLK50

We owe it to Dr. King to commemorate the man in full: a radical, ecumenical, antiwar, pro-immigrant and scholarly champion of the poor.

Denmark Gets First Public Statue of a Black Woman, a ‘Rebel Queen’

The #RebelQueen statue of Mary Thomas called “I Am Queen Mary” is the first public monument to a black woman in Denmark.

As a challenge to the country’s collective memory, two artists unveiled a monument to a 19th-century figure who led a fiery revolt against Danish colonial rule in the Caribbean.

Obama Portraits Blend Paint and Politics, and Fact and Fiction

"Not only are the Obamas the first African-American presidential couple to be enshrined in the collection, the painters they’ve picked to portray them — Kehinde Wiley, for Mr. Obama’s portrait; Amy Sherald, for Mrs. Obama — are African-American as well. Both artists have addressed the politics of race consistently in their past work, and both have done so in subtly savvy ways in these new commissions."—Holland Cotter

Today's #MondayInspiration is courtesy of the official presidential portraits of Barack Obama and Michelle Obama, unveiled to the public and the subjects this morning at the National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Institution.

This Barack Obama Is No Mr. Nice Guy. Kehinde Wiley’s portrait of the former president contradicts the impression he often made in office of being detached.

A mother and daughter who marched are ‘tentatively hopeful’ about feminist activism under Trump

PLEASE READ this great intersectionally and environmentally-focused piece from Dr. Heidi Hutner about what to do after the #WomensMarch - - “White feminists need to be sure to create a welcoming space for all marginalized groups. This means reaching out to, supporting and showing up for Black Lives Matter, brown and black women, Muslims, LGBTQIA+, the disabled, immigrants, the undocumented and low-income groups. It means being truly inclusive and intersectionally attuned.”

WHY OPRAH CAN’T RUN FOR PRESIDENT.
If anybody could come in, on day one, with no political experience and rock the house, it’s Oprah Freakin’ Winfrey. Understanding the levers of the political process is necessary to be an effective leader, but Oprah Winfrey is bright, a self-professed lover of teachers, promoter of literacy and academic academy founder. She’s a life-long learner with the kind of humility to admit what she doesn’t know and surround herself with the best to achieve it. She knows how to tap talent - Oz, Phil, Rachael, Suze, Iyanla, Ava, etc. Oprah also has the benefit of transparency. Her life has been an open book and part of her charm, appeal and ability to reach people is her connection to the pain that so many people continue to navigate around personal struggle. Who better to be president than a person whose mantra is “Live Your Best Life”? Now, given all that, I do not want her to run. Oprah has been able to be so effective in her work because her platforms allow her to bring a level of authenticity to inconvenient and hurtful truths and issues of social justice in a way that politicians can’t. Politicians have to very carefully navigate social justice. She’s been able to address issues of race, gender, class, health, weight, LGBTQ, poverty, religion in ways that very few politicians can or even will. I’m afraid she’d lose that voice and ability to have real conversations in the narrow uncompromising confines of politics. She is also a billionaire and I can’t imagine - EVER - that she would be granted the same loose and unethical road Trump has been given by not fully divesting from making money as president. Ethics committees across congress would all of a sudden decide that a tightening of emoluments clauses are now necessary with a Black female president. Plus, I have NO DESIRE to see daily doses of this nation’s racism and misogyny unleashed on a woman who has offered so much. I’ll pass on the misogynoir. So, I say, Oprah don’t do it. We need you as a limitless humanitarian … but if she does, it’ll be another instance in which Black women are expected to save America. 🇺🇸 👸🏽✊🏾

Daily allegations of sexual abuse and misconduct. This is, unfortunately, the fallout when we start holding power accountable - in all forms. Some sad realities will emerge. We must also hold accountable a pervasive environment that allows the powerful to degrade women (and children … and some men). We will experience disappointments and liberal casualties like Louis C.K., Jeffrey Tambor, Al Franken, Charlie Rose … and more to come. We haven’t even begun to pick the scabs of incest, the abuses of power in our own families, and our religious leaders in our communities. When will we publicly have those conversations? The onus has always been on the victim to not stir up trouble and burn down the house. It hurts to see what trusted ally will disappoint us next. This is what happens when you clean house - it all comes out in the wash.

“But the grievance of black lawmakers is a particular one: As black activists tried last year to focus attention on police brutality, unfair treatment before the law, inequality and white supremacy, social media giants like Facebook were being commandeered by Russian intelligence agents to turn white voters against them.”

Sheryl Sandberg’s meeting on Thursday with the Congressional Black Caucus afforded lawmakers a chance to vent over Russia’s exploitation of racial division.
