Because you never see me smile…

I’m posting this image from my @readitforward look! Yes, if you’re wondering, this is a nod to B*A*P*S! That hood classic, staring Halle Berry, was the product of a late 90s boom in Black representation on the big screen (which haven’t happened again until recently), so if you haven’t seen it, please look it up! It hits on issues of racial self hatred and materialism in a Cinderella remixed storyline. It’s a deep movie on the complexity of the double conscious theory if you read between the lines and campy humor. Second to Coming to America, it’s an all time favorite of mine!

Again, huge thanks to Read It Forward for including me in the line up amongst my absolute favorite fellow bookstagrammers!

Oh and if you haven’t read Small Doses yet, we need to talk! This book is a conversation starter on womanhood, race, the entertainment industry,dating, society, and insecurities. It’s just enough on each topic to have you chuckling at Amanda Seales’ chronicles while self analyzing your own approaches to similar situations.
