Our reality in 2014. Black boys and Black men can’t even go to the store without being gunned down.

I took this pic while sitting on the runway at JFK and all I could think about was how this skyline will forever be my muse. This week marked my three years of NYC residency. I have survived this city. I’ve fallen on my face at times and experienced some of the lowest points in my life. But just as the rain cleared up and my tears dried I rose like a Phoenix ready to give this place another try, conquer my fears and live out my dreams. This place really has a hold on me and I wouldn’t have it any other way. #iloveny

My mother’s prayers for me and her unconditional love for me gets me through each day. Today the mothers of our Nigerian sisters won’t be served breakfast in bed. They will be up and in the arts fighting to get their daughters back. Everyday these mothers pray for their daughters in hopes that their girls will make it to another day. Strength comes in numbers keep up this movement. Human trafficking is a global problem that’s why it’s important @nathanielscott. I AM #NOTFORSALE!
By @ayaminah “In light of the recent tragedy of over 200 schoolgirls being taken and possibly put up for sale in Nigeria I’ve decided to start a campaign #NotforSale.
We as women are not for sale. There is a consciousness that supports the objectification of women and lends support to the systems of sex trafficking, capturing and selling women as brides, and more. Whether it’s for reality TV or for the pleasure of men, our physical selves and spiritual selves are not for sale.
This campaign is a reminder to everyone of the intrinsic value of each individual woman across the world and that a price cannot be placed on our bodies.
Please take a photo or short video of yourself, your daughters, sisters, sorors, granddaughters and share why you and the women you love are #Notforsale. Please also utilize the hashtag #bringbackourgirls.
I became a woman at Howard University. Those four years opened my eyes to the world and showed me my full potential. It will be a time in my life that I’ll cherish forever. Congrats to the 2014 graduates. The world is ready to receive your talents and gifts. #welcometoalumnistatus #bisonlove
