Issue No. 8: TODAY AND EVERYDAY CELEBRATE THE CHANGEMAKERS

March is officially “Women’s History Month” but every month here at BBS we celebrate the trailblazing women who have led the way for change and acknowledge the accomplishments that have helped shape beauty, culture, science, sports and politics contributing to the rich history, growth and success of our communities.

There are countless extraordinary women who have inspired us, women that have faced challenges and triumphed. Among them- political activists Angela Davis, Yuri Kochiyama, congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez; beauty entrepreneur Madame CJ Walker, the first woman self-made millionaire; artists Zora Neale Thurston, Alice Coltrane, Betty Davis, Dolly Parton, Eiko Ishioka; style icon and olympic medalist Flo-Jo; as well as our mothers, sisters, and friends. We celebrate all of them today, this month, and always. Their ambition. Their strength. Their courage.

These women’s stories matter. In a country where the contributions of women of color are often pushed to the sidelines and overt attacks are on the rise such as the brutal killing this month of 6 Asian women in their workplace, echoing a long history of violence directed at women and people of color; there is no time like NOW to pay attention and continue vocalizing who we are and our role in this country.

  • You aren’t even a Bruce but there you sit using my family’s name for your gain. You will be stopped.

  • Imagine after your family being robbed of it’s property (Bruce’s Beach) by caucasian racists and finally generations later having the rightful ownership returned, then discovering that a couple of African American individuals have covertly filed for intellectual property registration of the name of the property owned by your family; Bruce’s Beach.
    Bruce’s Beach is the name of the property owned by my family and no one outside of my family has any legitimate basis to profit from it or file for ownership of the name of the property as has been filed. I imagine this greedy, disrepectful decision that has been made is going to prove to be a bad business decision. Do the right thing and cease and desist from all efforts to individually and collaboratively profit from my family’s property.

  • It sadden my heart that greed will inspire people to steal from others. Please reframe from the inappropriate behaviors. Our family will be dealing with enough legal issues in the distance future.
