In January 2017, Jessy marched in DC and Rebekah represented in New Orleans. We aren’t going to weigh in on all the stuff happening regarding the organizers of the DC march but we do want to say this: if you’re protesting today, stay safe, stay committed, stay strong. Welcome To My Vagina has become our ongoing form of resistance. And we are committed to working harder than ever. And we thank you for motivating us and supporting us. Now let’s show these fuckers what we’re made of!
Today, the women of New Orleans are unable to join their sisters across the country to demand social change. However, this does not mean we will be silent or pacified. Volunteer! Donate! Attend our comedy show! We are still here fighting for our rights and tearing down the the oppressive systems trying to hold us all down!

Time to be clear on what it is that you want in your life. But not alone, yes you are the director, but others can help you with the steps through your course.
❤️ Love is on your mind whether you try to deny it or not cancers. If this is what you want, be clear about it. If you are like me and don’t go out much to be able to meet someone, ask your friends to help out. Maybe by introducing you to someone or just to come out with you and mingle.
💰 Positive affirmations can change your whole financial situation. Always describe your own and the worlds economic situation in loving and optimistic terms, and that is what you attract for yourself and others. Spirit also say to not chase after what you want. Send it love and gratitude with a knowing of what’s to come. When we fear not receiving, we block our desires from coming. 😇 The ancestors want for you to be brave and honest about the thing that are true to you. Not what’s true for others. Connect with your emotions, they will guide you in the right direction.

Mahalia Jackson was born Oct. 26, 1911, in a three-room home in the Black Pearl neighborhood of New Orleans. Her only musical training consisted of listening to records of blues singer Bessie Smith, whose influence could be detected in Jackson's work. When Jackson was 6, her mother died, leaving her to be raised by her father, a preacher on Sundays who worked as a stevedore and a barber during the week. At 8 years old, she dropped out of school to help raise her family. At 16, she moved to Chicago and took a factory job packing dates. When she wasn't working, she was singing in a Baptist church choir. Jackson's powerful voice soon earned her a spot as a soloist, essentially marking the start of her singing career. By 1928 -- at 17 years old -- she went on the road for two years to sing and raise money for various churches. She made her first recording in 1934. By 1950, she was playing Carnegie Hall. Among her million-selling records were "I Can Put My Trust in Jesus," "Silent Night" and "He's Got the Hole World in His Hands." She didn't do pop songs. "You can't mix the work of the Lord with the work of the other side," she is quoted as having said. Her fame was by no means limited to the United States. She sang for European royalty, Indira Gandhi of India and Emperor Hirohito of Japan. In the 1950s and '60s, Jackson became closely associated with the civil rights movement. She also became a close friend of Martin Luther King Jr. when the two met in Montgomery, Ala., during the bus boycott of 1955-56. Often when he was having a rough day, it is said he would call her and ask her to sing to him over the telephone to lift his spirits. Jackson is credited with prompting King's "I Have a Dream Speech" during the 1963 March on Washington. She was there to perform, after which she took a seat on the dais a few places from King. As he read from his prepared remarks, she shouted: "Tell them about the dream, Martin!," at which point he paused, pushed aside his pre-written speech and launched into what would become one of the most famous pieces of oration in American history. Jackson died Jan. 27, 1972, of a heart seizure in a hospital in Chicago.
