#thingsblackgirlsdo: Rise and Shine

November 11, 2010

A trending topic on Twitter right now is #thingsblackgirlsdo.

I had to think about it for a minute. Then it came to me. One of the thing we bettah do is rise.

I’m referring, of course, to the poem by Maya Angelou, “Still I Rise.”

I had the pleasure of meeting her at a party in her honor in DC. The likes of Larry King, Christie Brinkley and Dan Rather were in attendance, but she was the real star.

Of course, I had to talk with her. She was so gracious and complimentary. I had to write about it in my book, Starring in Your Own Life.

So what are the things black girls do? Rise and shine.
