In honor of tonight’s showing of Black Girls Rock here are some inspirational quotes from black women who are known for stayng true to themselves and remaining authentic throughout their careers.
“Whatever is bringing you down, get rid of it. Because you’ll find that when you’re free… your true self comes out.”
– Tina Turner
“You are on the eve of a complete victory. You can’t go wrong. The world is behind you.”
– Josephine Baker
“Self-love is really a foundation for everything, and however you practice or express that is so, so important.”
Being the ideal of a strong woman means utilizing all the things that God gives you.
People are always saying to me, ‘You’re a strong female, so why are you wearing a
bikini on the cover of that magazine?’ Being a strong woman is misconstrued to be something evil and ugly.
