Now copied into a text post because I am done and thus acknowledging the internet again yay.
My mom is winning an award tonight and I’ll be at the ceremony while Glee is airing, so I’m staying offline until after I’ve seen the ep. Have fun, y’all!
We’ve been here all of four minutes and you guys have already forgotten everything I said! Party huddle, stat!
A young black girl decided to not bleach her skin after seeing the success of Lupita Nyong’o.
Lupita Nyong’o was inspired to be an actress after seeing Oprah Winfrey and Whoopi Goldberg in The Color Purple.
Whoopi Goldberg realized she could BE an actress after seeing Nichelle Nichols in Star Trek
I would like to add to this that there’s a WOC astronaut (I’m sorry, I can’t remember her name right now, but I know I’ve reblogged a post about her), who was inspired to be an astronaut because of Nichelle Nichols. Representation in the media doesn’t just stop at the arts.
