This #MemorialDay , we are being asked to engage in small and large sacrifices in order to protect each other’s lives. So although the parades may be canceled, let’s remember the courage required of those brave souls who have given the ultimate sacrifice while fighting for our freedoms. Let’s honor them today. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📽: @womenshistory

Lynn Shelton. You walked into my life and immediately changed me for the better. What an inspiration!!!! Your vision. Your enthusiasm for life. Your fiercely independent spirit. Your humor and love and dedication. As an artist. A mother. A director. A co-conspirator. A light. Thank you for your shining example. And your shimmering grace. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am heartbroken. And sending love to all who know and love you. This is a tremendous loss.
When Olivia Pope rolled up on Annalise Keating and I got a master class from my genius scene partner 😱 Tonight we say goodbye to another #TGIT masterpiece, #HTGAWM . I will forever be in awe of @violadavis and this entire cast. Thank you for the twists, the turns, the murders, the performances, and for being a show that changed television. Who’s watching tonight???? 🙋🏾♀️
#TBT 👩🏾🎓 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thinking about you beautiful people missing out on graduations and transitions. From preschoolers to Post graduate studies. From conservatories to trade schools. You may not have the graduation you planned but know that we are all cheering you on! You should be soooooo proud of all you’re accomplishing. ESPECIALLY in these times. Congratulations! I’m so excited about your big and bright future 🎓❤️🎊
Today was kinda spesh. Thank you to everyone who joined. 🧘🏾 If you missed it, here’s a quick recap and maybe I should do it again soon!?!? Let me know if you liked it! Or if you have questions 🤷🏾♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the meantime check out @rebeccabenenati and @erikabloompilates ! They do amazing yoga/Pilates work on their IG’s and they helped me come up with the flow ❤️🙏🏾😍
Comin’ outta #MothersDay like...
Years before Scandal, there was another lady who taught me how to wear all white 😍 She’s the epitome of grace. And generosity. And I am grateful to God for sending me to her. Today I honor my beautiful mother. And all the other wives and aunties and friends and mentors that I’ve been blessed to have in my mothering tribe. ❤️❤️❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Today, whether you are a mom, have a mom, will be a mom, or are walking the necessary path we all tread of learning to mother ourselves... I’m sending you all my love. #HappyMothersDay

I wanted to find a way to celebrate the Olivia Pope’s in history that inspire me and are giving me hope and faith during these uncertain times. And yep, I even brought out the white hat.❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Meet Fanny Jackson Coppin, the first African American school principle.
