Now Playing Tracks

In 1897 the Sisters on the right graduated Frederick Douglas memorial Hospital school of nursing Phillidelphia This was an act of self determination. In 2014 the Sisters on left remind us what self determination looks like. We look around our communities and decide what needs to be done. #nguzosaba #care #takers #nurses #healers #midwives #Ourstory #nubia #Afrofuturisim #selfdetermination #creatives #promoter #instagood #truestory #nitrasitisabeast

So, today was pretty awesome. I started off with brunch with the lovely @dopechicsbeautybar I <3 her.
Than I took a tour of the Studio Museum of Harlem #CharlesGaines gridwork exhibition was incredible. All that work made art!!!! I got a new sketch book the words on the cover says it all for me. If it were not for who came before us. I had to get a postcard picture of Ms. Zora N. Hurston because she has to be on my studio wall. My sketch of movement. Elements of a beautiful day in Harlem.

Although the article reads Harlem for the next two weeks from 1:30 - 3:00 p.m on Saturdays. You can sit in on a FREE master class of spinning and more with Ms. Twain Revell at Weeksville Heritage Center 158 Buffalo Avenue btwn Bergen Street and St. Marks A/C train to Utica Avenue. Since being asked to be part of this enormous art exhibit I have enjoyed meeting and working with people that are leaders in their respective fields. I have enjoyed master classes from master teachers in pilates, yoga, juicing and fiber spinning. The list is extensive.

I encourage you to bring your children, your spouses, family and friends. Spend a day walking the exhibits I promise you, you will walk away with something new you learned. This is where Art meets History in the most spectacular way.
