    Awwww Keme...you do have it in you after all, don't you? :)

    For starters, I love the way Black women move when they walk and use their hands and body when they talk. There's a rhythm and an air that commands attention.

    I love to hear a Black woman laugh...it seems to come from somewhere deep within her far beyond her years.

    I love how expressive Black women can be when they are deeply moved by something, especially music.

    And Black women together in a group? Maaannn...talk about a sight to behold! Confidence and courage displayed like no other. Flare, eye appeal and perfume seems to take on a different aroma when she wears it....more intoxicating.

    Good thread Mahogany.... ;)

    I definitely like the fact that we age well. My Mother, Grandmoms and Aunts just get more beautiful with age.

    Our beauty is varied and is envied by many other women. We see them try to obtain what we naturally have through plastic surgery and other means.

    Our skin glistens in the summer sun. Our hairstyles are so varied. The sisterhood, when positive, can lift one up so you feel you can take on the world.

    Hands down…It’s our inner strength, that enables us to rise above the many struggles and social oppressions we face. While we possess supreme natural beauty, we are forced to defend it as well. It is my belief that it is inherently our inner strength. It was only the strongest of our ancestors that survived our painful history and we are direct descendants of them…the strongest.

    So, while society would paint a picture of a crassly sexual, materially grasping, verbally vulgar harpy “black woman” we still manage to hold our heads up and continue on. Educating and elevating ourselves and our children sometimes without the very man that God ordained for us…this is the epitome of beauty to me.

    Inner strength that allows us to “Rise”.

    the natural abundance of the earth suggests that the black woman is divine, since all life proceeds from her. the black woman was the 1st gardener. the black woman as nourisher ntroduced agriculture. her xperience n producing life, could best evoke the seed 2 sprout & flower. she provided 4 her family as food gatherer. using her knowledge of herbs, they were the 1st practitioners of medicine.

    n addition 2 providing food the black woman created weaving, 4 our warmth & protection. the patching of old baskets, w clay led 2 the making of pottery. 4 the black women every aspect of daily domestic routine was considered holy & had some ritual intent.
