Traditionally people wait for permission to be empowered and I think what is changing now is that women are empowering themselves and that is really a key change… We don’t have to wait for permission.


I love seeing a stylish Black woman in her equally stylish home. Zimbabwean actress Thandie Newton gives us a glimpse into her Malibu home in the latest issue of New African Woman Magazine. In it, she discusses her life of motherhood, embracing the power of the woman,  and the state of African politics, all while dripping in sumptuous African-flavored textiles and jewels.
