    Sometimes the unconditional love can hurt and heal, but we have to take the good with the bad.
    But for this, want to focus on the good.

    And the kind of good that moves the heart and makes the world seem ok again.





    East Oakland Hosts Keyshia Cole Day
    Singer presents a free family-oriented event on Sept. 30
    Sep 26, 2012

    Oakland native Keyshia Cole, a multi-platinum selling R&B star now living in Cleveland, returns to her home town on September 30 to celebrate the fifth annual Keyshia Cole Day at the East Oakland Sports Center.

    It's a free yearly celebration of giving back to the community that Cole began in 2008, when the City of Oakland proclaimed August 8 to be Keyshia Cole Day in recognition of her achievements in music.

    Not sure if this is still celebrated, but would be nice to have more of these around communities like this.


    Feel free to share other "feel good moments in Black history" as well.
    The more the merrier.


    Respect

    At the 2012 London Games, then-17-year-old Claressa Shields became the first American woman ever to win a gold medal in boxing. In 2015, the Flint, Mich., native made history again by becoming the first American women’s boxer to win a gold medal at the Pan American Games. Now 20 years old, Shields is currently training at the United States Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Co., with hopes of qualifying for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio and yet another spot in the record books. SI.com sat down with Shields at the training facility to discuss her Olympic history, training regimen, role models and more.
