#wcw: Stompin' at the Savoy made me want to move to Harlem when I was a little girl. ( I was so disappointed to find out the real life legendary Savoy night club was destroyed and apartment buildings were built in its place) But the women in this film made me feel like I didn't have to choose, everyone of these actresses is a multi-threat and all of them move seamlessly between drama and comedy as well. This film was apart of the legacy that I'm sure lent itself to shows like #livingsingle, #sexinthecity #girlfriends #insecurehbo and any show that explored female friendships under pressure. ✨✨✨ •Natural Selection•

#thegetdown part II  #afropuff #discosleek #platinum #boogie First, let’s acknowledge the societal pressures that discourage women from negotiating a higher starting salary or knocking on a boss’s door to ask for a raise. One study found that while half of men negotiated for their salary, only 1 out of 8 women did. So let’s encourage women to advocate for themselves in spite of what society may say.

As a United States senator, my salary is determined by law. But as the daughter of a working mother in a male-dominated field, I’ve seen firsthand the fight to be treated equally in the workplace. And I know we can’t afford to be held back by outdated ideas of women being “pushy” or “not being a team player.” As the Nigerian writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie advised a friend on raising her daughter, “Teach her to stand for what is hers.” -@kamalaharris for @teenvogue Anyone with information linked to the missing and possibly exploited teens in the D.C area is asked to call 202-576-6768. However there are an alarming amount of missing #black, #Latinx, and #LGBTQ teens, specifically #girls and #femmes that are missing all over the US. Take a little time to check out those missing posters in your area, we know our lives are valuable even though news outlets don't agree. I've heard it called a few different things, #goldenmilk #turmeric #tea #turmericlatte How do you make yours? Stills from my first short titled #tbt circa 2014  Malibu beach trip. ☺️ #tbt museum trip Circa 2014 It's like being bad but not really.

 India R. McGee was born in Hampton, Virginia into a military family complete with brothers and sisters.  She began dancing in church at the age of 3, where the group’s choreographer noticed that she showed an exceptional interest in dance. It was suggested that she begin formal training, however due to her families constant moving being able to attach to any one studio or style of dance proved difficult. It was not until college that she was able to plant herself in the city of Los Angeles and attend programs at Debbie Allen Dance Academy, Lula Washington Dance Studio and the esteemed dance program at California State University Los Angeles. After completing her Bachelors degree, several dance/fitness certification programs and the Groundlings she still had ambitions that couldn’t be fulfilled in California. She booked her first Broadway show through a cattle call being held in North Hollywood, achieving her dream of moving to NYC.
       India is an natural storyteller and uses her blogs and vlogs as an online reservoir for both. Cooking, and hosting dinner parties, have steadily brought her joy since she first started community dinners in her college dorm. She’s always felt being able to connect and commune with people, swap stories and experience different points of view, seem to make meals that much more satisfying. Fortunately she as able to meet and build strong relationships with people who have her support system through out the roller coaster that is “the entertainment business”. Her parents, siblings, extended family, church family and dorm sisters did their best to make it to every show, no matter the scale. Her mentors, teachers and advisors also showed support with advice and guidance whether jobs where abundant or sparse.  She is very excited to write this next chapter of her life and is very excited to be apart of the bloc team!
