In school most of the time we are always learning about the popular historic figures in the black community (MLK, Malcolm X, Rosa Parks…) but for me I personally can no longe relate to these figures. My reality is I live in a world where being plus size is conisdered negative and that we all unhealthy, and in order to be successful in the entertainment industry you have to be skinny. I need someone who when I’m watching tv, or a movie she looks like me. And two young women immediately come to mind…Amber Riley and Gabourey Sidibe.
I picked these two young ladies because they are rising stars. and both are a force to reckoned with. The talent that both these young ladies possess is to never be questioned. I definitely predict to see these two young ladies 10 maybe 20 years down the road, still doing great work.
