SELFMADE :Madame C J Walker

SELFMADE!πŸŽžπŸ“½πŸ“ΊπŸŽ¬TRENDING NOW. Made me understand the  saying” some are called, but few are chosen!”.when you watch you too will understand.
How many have seen this incredible TV series trending on NETFLIX (actually made #1 mosy watched) .

it definitely stirred up some fire inside, making me more determined to go after mine!
Award winning Octavia Spencer (won several Globe ,Screen Actors  and Academy for her numerous supporting roles in The Help and  Hidden Figures)was absolutely awesome as Madame CJ Walker. The series is based on true life story of how Sarah Walker tired of being a clothes washerwoman , decided to sell Addie ‘s (played by Carmen Ejogo, she has a Nigerian Dad and  a Scottish  mom) hairgro products ,but was rudely rebuffed. So, she dared to pursue her dream. However , as in life, obstacles presented:betrayals,  plus  if her hopes of opening a factory or 10 cents stores, she would need endorsement of the Businessmen ,especially  the famous educator Booker T.Washington who didn’t mix words but let her know where “a woman’s place should be”!

Madame Walker overcame through rugged determination , and stubborn resolve , eventually becoming the first black selfmade millionaire; residing in same neighborhood as the wealthy Rockefeller in NYC.
Watch and see how her daughter played by comedian-actress Tiffany Haddish, surprised her when she eventually found her niche πŸ‘. Definitely a five⭐⭐⭐⭐.πŸ†πŸ…πŸ‘ŠπŸ½, and Oscar worthy !
The actors were all astounding,  especially my heart crush Blair Underwood , who was bad, yet I could see how he could have gone down the slippery path, based on the reality of his situation.
Enjoy the flick 🀩

Music legend Kenny Rogers has passed on at 81.

He”decorated my teenage life” Kenny Rogers did. The Country Music Legend passed on at age 81, on March 20th,2020 according to his publicist Keith Hagan’s report to CNN.
I remember how in my teens, I used to hug my pillows at night cooing to songs from radio,of some of my favorites like; ” island in the stream, “Lady “, and “don’t fall in love with a dreamer “, I knew even then, I was a Lady , one who will uphold her standards till the right man showed.

The Music legend , had a laid back, seductive ,yet easy-breezy not brashful singing style. His romantic country songs were an instant hit and popular on international levels. Infact, Rogers won over 5 awards including Three(3) Grammy’s, and a lifetime #1 song on Billboard (which he and his long time fellow artist Dolly Parton collaborated),” Island in the stream”(1983),remained on LIFETIME 100 honor #1 list.Rogers continued working for 6 decades!His music career was so successful he carried on , only retired at age 79 in 2017.
He will be greatly missed. 😌❀
Rest in Peace,KR.and Thank you for everything!

Kenny Rogers Lives forever in our memories.(RIP)

HAYDEN HURST IS A BURST Of FRESH AIR FOR ATL FALCONS.

It’s Official! With the exit of Austin Hooper out as a free Agent, leaving opening slot, FALCONS G.M , Thomas Dimitroff finished trade negotiations with BALTIMORE RAVENS, few days ago, announcing the newest arrival Hayden Hurst to ” Tighten the ends” of the Team”.

How many agree this is an excellent trade for ATL Falcons.⚽️ Though sports is not my forte’ I however had the privilege to listen in, as, an intelligent 26 year old Hurst humbly talkedΒ  on The Game radio 92.9,Β  earlier on March 20th, about how he plans to make a difference and “tighten ends” for the Falcons. He spoke briefly, but candidly, of now being 4 years sober.(Had previous alcohol issues during troubled teens). Also , mentioned was his previous impressive records of 44 passes, 559 yards 3, touchdowns in 2 seasons. 🎯⭐⭐⭐⭐I think this 6’5″ hunk is ready to Play Ball! I believe HURST is truly the needed Burst of Fresh energy required by FALCONS to take to championship.

The 6’5″ footer was a 2018 first round draft pick by the RAVENS after an outstanding career at University of South Carolina. From what I garnered, Hurst’s got talent, skills, depth, right mindset , energy and experience. According to NFL.Com report, He “earned a a 72.4 grade in Pro Football Focus for last years play, and ranked 14th among NFL tight ends.Now if that doesn’t make you excited, I wonder what will. πŸ€©πŸ†πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰
