In May 1989, Trump took out a full page ad in the @nytimes  pushing the idea of the death penalty around the case of the Central Park Five. This week, 30 years later, @netflix  took out a full-page ad celebrating their story and thwarting his lies. #WhenTheySeeUs 

Tomorrow is my birthday. And my @ArrayNow  family is a gift! Thank you each and all. Grateful. For. You. xo

Time to merge our #QueenSugarTalks  conversation with #QueenSugar  as Episode 410 begins in the east. Thx to our guests, to all those who asked questions and shared wisdom. And to @Oprah  who makes it possible for us to explore these issues freely on TV. Love to all! #GimmeSugar 

A lovely piece on our very own, very brilliant @AsanteBlackk ⁩. From high school senior to Emmy nominee in two months. Speedy! #WhenTheySeeUs 

Giving a heartfelt thanks to our comrade @common  for sharing his personal experiences and knowledge with us about trauma. Now tweeting: #QueenSugarTalks . We appreciate you, brother.

Now welcoming someone I admire immensely. In the face of pain and grief, @culturejedi  rises. And lifts the rest of us along the way. Love to you, Mac. Ask your questions to this wise one via #QueenSugarTalks . xo!

We thank @IyanlaVanzant  for joining us. This phenom continues to share such wisdom. @rashadrobinson  is answering your questions about the trauma when seeking justice. And now activist @AlenciaJ  joins that conversation. Use hashtag ! #QueenSugarTalks

While @IyanlaVanzant  continues to drop knowledge on trauma + healing, let’s welcome @rashadrobinson  of @ColorOfChange . Ask him questions about trauma and your civil rights, law enforcement, the judicial system. He works on all these critical subjects. #QueenSugarTalks

Between @IyanlaVanzant  and @MsPackyetti  both tweeting with such conviction and transparency, I’m getting my whole life and three more! #QueenSugarTalks

This needs to happen on EVERY lie. It's up to the press to do this EVERY time. Go hard, y'all. On EVERY lie.

An ignorant question leads Dr. King to offer a strong lesson in black history in two minutes flat. I can tell that he’s slightly irritated, but also determined to break it ALL the way down. Which he does brilliantly. A king. #MLK90

Thank you to of and many others who identified the proud Native man who is being harassed. He is Mr. Nathan Phillips. I’m reposting this video from “ka_ya11” on IG. This man’s words pierce my heart. The grace. The wisdom. The hope.

The mother of #JazmineBarnes  on the fatal shooting of her 7-year old daughter. Killer pulled up to the family in his red truck and fired shots directly into their car. Jazmine died at the scene. Dec 30. Houston. Murderer is a white male, 40s and is still at large. #SayHerName 

Don’t move forward after reading this like everything is normal. Don’t shake your head at Alabama and then keep going about your day. Realize that this is a warning. It’s Alabama and abortion today. It’s you and your rights tomorrow. Your silence will not save you. So speak up.

We can get mad at this. Tweet up a storm. Call him names. All those things. Or - we can do the only thing that really matters. Vote. Them. Out. November 6. Midterms. Diminish his power. Batter his ego. Raise your voice. Show them all who’s boss. Justice and dignity will prevail.
