Late night studying religion. Then I got to work a bit on my project and review for my science test tomorrow. I may be up all night😬😬
Reading a research article from The New England Journal of Medicine for a class discussion tomorrow.
People harp on The Cosby Show as being an unrealistic representation of Black life in America during that period, but one of the shows main characters, Phylicia Rashād, actually did live a charmed life quite similar to that of the Huxtable Family. Phylicia’s mother was a Pulitzer-prize nominated artist, poet, playwright, scholar, and publisher and her father was an orthodontist.
She earned a degree in Fine Arts from Howard University where she graduated magna cum laude and became a member of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority.
Did you know that our beloved Phylicia Rashād aka Claire Huxtable has a huge number of Broadway credits under her belt. Few people know that Phylicia is also a very talented singer.
In 1978, Phylicia then Allen, released a Disco concept album about the life of Josephine Baker called “Josephine Superstar.”
And in 2004 Phylicia made history as the first African-American actress to win a Tony for for Best Actress.

Journalist and artist Shirin Barghi has created a gripping, thought-provoking series of graphics that not only examines racial prejudice in today’s America, but also captures the sense of humanity that often gets lost in news coverage. Titled “Last Words,” the graphics illustrate the last recorded words by Brown and other young black people — Trayvon Martin, Oscar Grant and others — who have been killed by police in recent years.
