I was given the privilege of dressing my sister tonight. She is one of the subjects of “The Gospel According To André”, the documentary on André Leon Tally. She looks amazing, she ALWAYS does. Tonight, in her grief, and trepidation she let myself and @ms_phipps dress her. I’m pleased with the choices... My sister’s grief is result of the death of one of her spiritual mentors and fathers, Dr. James H. Cone. However, on tonight as she prepared for departure and we shared... I am sure he was present smiling. I went to sit at table to rebut her concerns regarding make up, and this was my view. He sat there. This to remind her of her Blackness, her anointing, her grace and her stunning beauty. He was sitting with us tonight and we knew. My dear sister, walk tall with the ancestors at your side who undergird your greatness. I love you! #thegospelaccordingtoandre #nyc #walktall #theancestors #theancestorsarewithyou #black #blackityblackblackblack #wakandaforever
I guess I’m gonna play too. This even though it’s now Friday. This was my very first headshot. Make-up by @alicia_olatuja #firstheadshot #headshots #shame #thatgoatee #mercy #itslate #oldheadshot You can literally see where my hairline receded from... I could sing though, and I still can.
