On Sunday, January 7th 2018 , it was a blackout on the red carpet of the Golden Globes in solidarity to the women & men who have stood by silent for too long in the face of sexual harassment. #TIMESUP was the hashtag and the movement, so whether you were at the Globes or not women and men were rocking black.
Though I wasn’t at the Globes, I was making my comeback to Afterbuzz TV after a little break with Showtime’s The Chi aftershow! January marks my 1 year anniversary as an Afterbuzz TV host and I couldn’t be happier then to be back with this show! Truly walking in my Year of Franceli
As I walked into the studio in my all black the globes were on and none of us could start watching the show because Momma O, (Oprah) was on the screen accepting her Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement. (First African American woman to receive this prestigious award) Can’t believe in 2018 we are still saying 1st anything. We were all enthralled and there were so many tweetable moments, yet the one that stood out the most as we got ready to watch Lena’s show was “Telling your truth is the most powerful tool you have.” Oprah has spoken her truth and made history, Lena spoke her truth and made history and to all the women that continue to tell the truth and make history seen or unseen… THANK YOU!
Below check out some clips from the Afterbuzz show and some of MY truths that I’m telling. Be sure to watch The Chi on Showtime!
