I absolutely love Lupita Nyong’o. She can do absolutely no wrong with me. She wears her natural hair low in different cuts and styles, she carelessly flaunts her smooth brown skin and her smile is simply infectious. It makes me beam from the inside out that Black women are being seen for different types of beauty that has not been shown in the media before.
Lupita was on Sesame Street to talk about skin. She educated Elmo on why people, animals, and little monsters have skin. Best of all they brought up the wonderful thing about skin is that is comes in different colors.
Another one of my favs Janelle Monae tore it up on Sesame Street with ‘The Power of Yet’ song. Yes to brown girls. Yes to positive images.
