I just saw her at #ALAMW21
She dropped so much wisdom and knowledge during her interview.
She reminded me so much of the women in my family, wise, resilent, bold and humorous.
I ordered her autobiography a few just days later.
She was a part of my childhood, one of the few black women on television/film.
She was regal, dignified and was our precious gem.
I celebrate her life and dedication to the black community and womanhood.
