There we can find enough photos of her now 7-month-old sweet-faced baby Olympia to bring a smile to the gloomiest face. Don't believe me, sift through this post and I guarantee you'll be smiling too!

She So Vain: Meet the Young Sudanese Model Giving Us Old School Glamour!


Adut Akech


















By Erickka Sy Savané

There's a saying that goes, 'don't miss your entrance.' Well, S. Sudanese model Adut Akech, who grew up in a Kenyan refugee camp before making her way to Australia as a kid, and just graduated high school last year, did not miss hers. When Vogue.com released a series of videos from New York Fashion Week starring Paris Jackson, model Ashley Graham and Cardi B., lip sinking to the song 'You're So Vain,' it was Adut's rendition that stuck out like a white person in Black Panther. Why? Because we haven't been worked by a model like this since George Michael flipped the script with his classic 'Freedom' video or Michael Jackson and Naomi fired up the screen in 'Keep It in the Closet.' So exactly who is Adut Akech? Let's find out!

Black Panther's Danai Gurira on being a Proud Zimerican

Danai Gurira
By Erickka Sy Savané

One thing we can say about the film Black Panther (now the #1 movie in the WORLD) is that it's bridging a long over-due gap between Africans and African Americans. To see the movie is to be proud of where we come from and that's just facts. As an African American woman who grew up with an affinity for the continent, and is raising two little girls with my hubby from Cote D'Ivoire, it's a world that has always held interest for me. So when I stumbled across an article in this month's Glamour magazine where Black Panther star Danai Gurira talks about what it means to be "Zimerican" (she was born in Grinnel, Iowa to Zimbabwean parents and moved to Zimbabwe when she was around 6 or 7 years old), I was all ears. Here are a few things that stuck out from her essay that old fans (Walking Dead is still her day gig) and new fans, will enjoy!
