It was an honor to share space with @ppmwa at their annual gala. I learned from many, cried with some, and laughed with others. Even Harriet (Black Moses) Tubman made her presence known last night…and we said her name. As we continue the tumultuous journey to freedom through resistance, let us always remember we are stronger together and we are at our absolute best when we treat each other as visible. ✊🏾💕 |styled by: @jasonrembert | jewelry: @amandapearl | gown: @cushnieetochs | shoes: @giuseppezanotti | hair: @only1gerald
