On this #ThoughtfulThursday we’d like to honor the late Cicely Tyson for Black History Month. It was known that Ms. Tyson was very selective in the roles she chose. She explained by saying,”Unless a piece really said something, I had no interest in it. I have got to know that I have served some purpose here”. Remember her words in your daily activities. Find your purpose and work toward it every day. You can find more encouragement in Cicely Tyson’s autobiography, Just As I Am. #HopeTrafficking #BeAHopeDealer

On our first #ThoughtfulThursday of Black History Month, we’d like to recognize our new Vice President, Kamala Harris. Vice President Harris is the first woman and first Black and Indian woman to hold the title of Vice President. As we reflect on the difficult history of civil rights we must make sure our thoughts are no longer those of fear and displacement. We must inspire self-love and confidence within our community by recognizing those like Vice President Harris who have made great accomplishments and by encouraging the future “firsts” who are still developing. If you have had thoughts of self-doubt this week, remember these words from our new Vice President:
“You are powerful and your voice matters. You’re going to walk into many rooms in your life and career where you may be the only one who looks like you or who has had the experiences you’ve had. But you remember that when you are in those rooms, you are not alone. We are all in that room with you applauding you on. Cheering your voice. And just so proud of you. So you use that voice and be strong.”

Don’t forget to take time for you! This week we challenge you to take a social media break. While we have been in quarantine, Sofia media has been a way to help us stay connected with each other and stay up to date on current events but it can quickly become a rabbit hole. Don’t fall in! We have to be more conscious of our screen time; while it can offer many social benefits it can quickly and negatively impact our health. Check our IG story for tips to reduce your screen time. #HopeTrafficking 💙 #SelfCare

“One of the most effective ways of promoting women’s control over their environment, and their effective right of political participation, is to promote women’s literacy” - Martha Nussbaum HOEO seeks to support a love for learning and literacy in Hampton Roads through our City Center Educational Program. Our desire is to provide hope through education for young adults in our community who have been discouraged and deprived of proper access to furthering their education. This week #wegotoureyeson Netflix documentary, “Teach Us All”. The film shows how much progress, or lack thereof, has been made within the American education system since integration in the 1950’s. It is no secret that there is still a lot of work to be done and we must be informed of how institutionalized racism has stacked the bricks against people of color in order to break them down and find solutions.

“...when the storm is like a down pour it seems insurmountable and we feel immobile. But if we are ever going to know the power and might of God, and attain a genuine level of faith, it will be born during a storm.” It’s time to move to the other side of the storm #HOPEDealers! Last week we used journaling to release negative feelings so this week, let’s take the time to write down the actions needed to get to the other side. We can not lose sight of the greater blessing that He is leading us to. In order to stay focused on our path out of the storm we must stay on top of our mental health by practicing consistent self-care. We have to remember to renew and refresh #HOPEDealers! #HopeTrafficking #MarchANDVote

“...when the storm is like a down pour it seems insurmountable and we feel immobile. But if we are ever going to know the power and might of God, and attain a genuine level of faith, it will be born during a storm.” We’ve been called to action #HOPEDealers and we can not get tired now! Although tackling racism seems like an insurmountable task, we can not lose #hope. Don’t let your emotions build up or overwhelm you, set aside time to write your feelings down. Use it to release those negative feelings causing hopelessness. We must stay on top of our mental health by practicing consistent self-care. We have to remember to renew and refresh #HOPEDealers! #HopeTrafficking #MarchANDVote 💙

Happy Friday #HopeDealers! Hope everybody is staying safe and healthy while protesting. We have been so excited to see the passion and desire to support and uplift the people of our community. @cceva1932 has been a great resource for the families in our area. We wanted to feature them today because of the work they do helping the Hampton Roads region. Catholic Charities of Eastern Virginia has served our area since 1932. Over the years their mission has expanded to include services for all people in need in five main areas: Youth & Family Services, Financial and Housing Counseling (including financial assistance), Mental Health Counseling, Health and Community Services and Senior Services. Check our IG story for ways to help CCEVA continue to support Hampton Roads families in need during the pandemic. #HopeTrafficking 💙

Glowing Moment Journal
“Don’t hide your great dream or vision in a vacuum..Visions are necessary for your life and may give life and hope to the lives of others.”
Yesterday Lady J shared a devotional from Glowing Moments to inspire us to KEEP THE DREAM ALIVE! Allow her words to sink deep in our minds and hearts, let’s reflect through your day with moments of journaling our feelings. This simple expression allows for much needed self care and awareness during such a difficult moment in time. Write out feelings of disappointment, frustration, sadness and anger as we wrestle with these issues of humanity. It is not just a black and brown problem but an issue of humanity as people continue to fight for the dignity to stay alive and to be seen as human’s deserving of justice. It’s okay to be angry, allow yourself to feel your emotions but eventually we have to release the burden of negative feelings. Let’s write together. Let’s release together. Let’s dream together. Then take action! Share your dream! Spread hope!

Zelda Barbour Wynn Valdes was an amazing fashion and costume designer. She got her start as a stock girl in a high end boutique and worked her way up to be the boutique’s first black sales person and tailor. In 1948, Valdes opened the first Black owned boutique, Chez Zelda, in Manhattan on Broadway. Her sexy but sophisticated style caught the eye of many entertainers. Zelda Valdes made gowns for Dorothy Dandridge, Josephine Baker, Marian Anderson, Ella Fitzgerald, Ruby Dee and Eartha Kitt to name a few. Zelda was proud of the career she built despite the racist issues she faced and wanted to make sure she created a path for future black designers. In 1949, Valdes was elected president of the New York chapter of the National Association of Fashion and Accessory Designers, an organization of black designers founded by Mary McLeod Bethune. After years of designing for celebrities, Valdes made a transition to costume design when Arthur Mitchell invited her to design for his company, the Dance Theater of Harlem. She was said to have transformed the average dance costume with simple changes like dying dance tights to match all skin tones instead of wearing the standard pink tights we’ve grown accustomed to seeing. Valdes believed she simply “had a God-given talent for making people beautiful”. Thank you Zelma Wynn Valdes for your irreplaceable contribution to the fashion industry. #BlackHistoryMonth #HopeTrafficking

02/18/2020

Clara Brown, affectionately called Aunt Clara, was a black pioneer, the first Black woman in Denver, a community leader and philanthropist. She was born a slave in Virginia and remained one until she was in her 50’s. After gaining her freedom, Clara Brown traveled west in search of her daughter. Along the 700 mile journey, Brown worked as a cook and laundress saving as much money as she could. Once she reached Colorado in 1859, Brown took full advantage of the Colorado Gold Rush by opening a laundry business for gold miners and taking on extra jobs cooking and cleaning for the miners. She used the money she saved to build St. James Methodist Church and was one of the founding members of the first Sunday school ever. Clara did not stop there. She took on a partner and expanded her laundry business. With the money she was able to invest in real estate and mines. Brown used her wealth to help the community. She opened her home to be used a hospital, church and hotel to the less fortunate. Brown also assisted hundreds of black families in there move to Colorado, financing them with her own money. In 1885 Clara Brown was elected the first Black and first female member of the Society of Colorado Pioneers. After decades of working tirelessly and searching for her daughter, Brown found her living in Iowa and was able to spend her last days with her. Clara Brown was so influential both the governor of Colorado and mayor of Denver honored her at her funeral. Brown’s life and achievements were commemorated with a stained glass portrait of of her in the Old Supreme Court Chambers of the state capitol in 1977, almost 100 years after her passing. Thank you Clara Brown for your radical impact and for showing us our beginning does not determine our ending. #BlackHistoryMonth #HopeTrafficking
