Black Is Beautiful

While venturing out earlier today in the middle on old Macau, China I came across this little cinema with their featured showcase “Black Is Beautiful”. This showcase is highlighting popular but impactful movies starring and directed by black people from the 1970s-present day.
Movies: Do The Right Thing, Blackkklansman, Losing Ground, If Beale Street Could Talk, Killer of Sheep, Daughters of the Dust, Fruitvale Station, An Oversimplification of Her Beauty, Chameleon Street and Sorry to Bother You.
This made my day. Since being here I’ve been getting awkward stares from locals that probably never encountered a black person in person before wanting to touch my hair or think I just got off the plane from Africa. Knowing there is a group of people here trying to get our beautiful message across.

Hello Guam!

Hi Aspirers! I’m currently in Guam and the plan is for me to stay here for a month. My sister offered to bring me out this way and I couldn’t say no. Who would say no to PARADISE! If you follow me on Instagram which you should be already (Instragram: _cocorenee) you would of seen pictures I’ve added to my story. Do you know what’s crazy is upon my arrive a storm was heading towards Guam. In my head I didn’t think it would be a big deal until I arrived and that storm was actually a FREAKING TYPHOON. What a great vacation so far….

Anyway I wanted to vlog my entire trip for you all. Check out my first vlog while I’m here in Guam. There are much more to come! Enjoy!
