“The future is female MAY” sound cliche but after watching every woman on this show- in their individual challenges- I was SO DAMN INSPIRED! They fought hard, they never gave up and they encouraged other WOMEN. What a world to live in? We can do more together than SEPARATE! Thank you ladies of @nbctitangames for that. Thank you @therock for including me and US and @sevenbucksprod@asmithcoprod for such a wonderful experience. Blessed to be here. 8pm est Thursday’s @nbc
We lost a LEGEND 4 years ago today. Was asked about Stuart Scott on the @richeisenshow and I shared a story about what he meant to so many “young bucks” in the game. When I first arrived at ESPN - it wasn’t easy to swim but messages from Stu kept me and so many others afloat. REST IN PEACE friend 🙏🏾.
Tomorrow is theeee DAY! The @nbctitangames begin. I’m sure most of you have seen the promos but this show is really special! Not jus saying that because I’m the reporter on-site! THURSDAY - @8pm est. TOMORROW!! Check it out. 🙏🏾
This trip to Ghana has been life changing. I want to share as much as I can because there’s a SOFT narrative about this beautiful place that needs to become loud and vibrant.
Cape Coast, known as the home of the transatlantic slave trade, has so much invaluable history to give to everyone.
As a black woman born in the states- I didn’t know -what I DIDNT know! No one could really understand what it’s like to be placed in a dark dungeon, no real food or water, no where to use the bathroom- stuffed - shoulder to shoulder for months. (We were inside the dungeon for just MINUTES and it was heartbreaking). But for millions there was NO real understanding of WHY or WHERE you are going- and if you fight- you’re killed. In reality, you weren’t suppose to make it but if you could survive the boat ride you where then introduced to slavery.
I cried to my CORE. I couldn’t but most importantly REFUSED to hide my emotions for my ancestors. DNA has cellular memory and now I know thats why I fight, why I survive- why I refuse to give up.
This is a trip to the Motherland that ALL people should take. For me, walking thru the Door Of Return -told me, this is where I began- IM HOME. #elminacastle#fullcirclefestival
