Best Speech ever on the importance of embracing your inner beauty. The significant role a parents plays in instilling positive self-esteem. It also affirms the need for children to see people who look like them in movies, magazines and as dolls. We must project positive images of race, and ethnicity and not shame. Lupita did an excellent and eloquent job of this in her speech to the Women of Essence. I’m so proud of this young lady. Despite political views having someone that looks like Michelle Obama in the White House has restored and given hope to many. America is great because of its vast diversity. May we continue to be brave in our diversity representation as we move forward.
