THE LEADING BLACKS

"Today's black leaders, I'm afraid, have become leading blacks. And you don't ever confuse the two. Black leaders are chosen by us...The leading blacks are chosen by the media." —Dr. Julia Hare

♥ ERYKAH BADU FOREVER

She helps me realize my own self-love a little bit more every time I hear from her.

Interview by noMSG

Erykah Badu has been displaying her fascination with interpretive dance since she toured for New Amerykah Part One. Those stage antics seemed bewildering back then, but judging by her new video for “Out My Mind/ Just in Time,” she seems to have perfected this technique. It’s a beautiful, spare and intimate expression of one of the most endearing cuts off of New Amerykah Part Two. ♥
