In case you missed some awesome Black People Magic this week…
Candyman made history last weekend as the first film directed by a black woman to debut at number one at the box office. Nia DaCosta did that! Or so I hear… because sadly, I cannot watch her masterpiece due to the fact that I’m a chicken.
And Emmett Till’s history is being honored at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History. A defaced historical marker from the site on the Tallahatchie River where his body was found, will be displayed in an exhibition that opened yesterday… where it’s featured prominently across from the original Star Spangled Banner.
Justice is a magical thing… when it finally happens.
& Remember to always celebrate your magic! xo
