Soooo, I’m supposed to be getting ready for bed, however, I need to capture the raw emotion from yesterday’s Black Joy Parade experience.
I was really going to wait to write about my experience simply because I’M TIRED and the last few weeks wore ya girl OUT but reading an article from The Mercury News inspired me.
What is the Black Joy Parade?
Oakland did an amazing job bringing a positive experience where thousands celebrated our beautiful black heritage. Check out The Mercury News article Oakland’s 2nd annual Black Joy Parade celebrates energy, creativity, excellence for more great information and pictures about the awesome parade. Make plans to attend next year.
My AMAZINGLY talented 100sUnit dance sister Rochelle Westbrooks
Back to Rochelle Westrooks of CheNailsBeauty based in Sacramento, CA. The Mercury News photographer captured “Rochelle Westbrooks, of Sacramento, raises her arms as she dances during the Black Joy Parade in Oakland, Calif., on Sunday, Feb. 24, 2019. (Jose Carlos Fajardo/Bay Area News Group)”
There is sooooo much more to Rochelle than the amazing nail designs she creates. This sista is TALENTED as she is a makeup artist, dancer, makes her own extraordinary costume/outfits and is a great mom. Don’t sleep on my sis Rochelle.
