At the Women’s March on Washington, singer Alicia Keys read a political message to the crowds: “We will not allow our compassionate souls to get stepped on.”
Civil Rights activist Angela Davis, Singer Madonna and march organiser Tamika Mallory were among the speakers at the Women’s March on Washington, in Washington DC, on Saturday.
SOT, Tamika Mallory, Co-Chair Women’s March on Washington (English): “We must be bold, the way you were bold to come here in these large numbers today. When you feel that we’re not taking care of one another properly, put your feelings aside, put your pride aside, and stand up for the most marginalised people in this society, because if you stand for them, you stand for all. Dr King said, ‘I will not remember the harsh words of my enemies, I will remember the silence of my friends.'”
SOT, Angela Davis, Civil Rights activist (English): “We dedicate ourselves to collective resistance, resistance to the billionaire mortgage profiteers and gentrifiers, resistance to the healthcare privateers, resistance to the attacks on muslims, on immigrants, resistance to the attacks on disabled people. Resistance to state violence perpretated by the police and through the prison-industrial complex.”
SOT, Madonna, singer (English): “To the rebellion, to our refusal – as women – to accept this new age of tyranny. Where not just women are in danger, but all marginalised people. Where being uniquely different, right now, might truly be considered a crime. It took this horrific moment of darkness to wake us the fuck up.”
Bria Myles broke the internet last week with a brand new photoshoot showcasing some very beautiful chocolate women at an unknown beach. This was a pleasant surprise due to the fact dark skinned women are consistently overlooked in current beauty standards and rarely get high profiled looks in magazines and music videos. Not sure when this will drop but Facet Studio will be the best resource to find out… Hit the jump from more of the photoshoot…
