Natural Throwback: Judy Pace

You may remember her as one of Lamont’s (the ‘big dummy’, son of Fred Sanford) many girlfriends! This mahogany beauty is an attractive African-American actress who starred in sexy, free-spirited films of the late 60s and 70s. In the 1970s, she was the personification of Black beauty but just calling her a black beauty is a slap in the face because she’s a beauty period!  Her dark brown complexion is always mentioned because she was the first dark complected beauty on screen. She proved to whites and blacks, that beauty doesn’t discriminate and a woman with dark-skin can be a beauty too.  Judy Pace was one of the many gorgeous black leading ladies of blaxploitation films of the seventies. Judy throughout her career broke the color line in TV and Hollywood. Judy Pace was the first to do many things that helped future black actresses.

Good A.M!

Today, I wanted to give inspiration to those who doubt their natural beauty…the non manufactured kind! The kind that makes us uniquely special and separates us from the norm! Enjoy!

What Topics Do Women Love to Hate Discussing?

I ran across an informative news blog, Change Comes Slow, written and managed by Nikeasha of Chicago Illinois. She dares to list the “5 Topics Black Women Hate to Love Discussing”.

1. SSBWS (Successful Single Black Woman Syndrome)
I believe most successful women are accused of having successful woman’s syndrome

2. Natural vs. Perm vs. Weave
Let’s live and let live. Personally, I no longer relax my hair, but I do not fault any woman for it.

3. The Long and Short of It All
Again, a personal choice for the woman.

Surgeon General: Women Choose beauty over health

That’s right ladies!

“Surgeon general Regina M. Benjamin recently warned attendees of the Bronner Bros. International Hair Show in Atlanta, Georgia that women who skip exercising in order to protect their hairstyles should focus more on their health.” According to the Surgeon General, “on average women spend way more on beauty products than health care: $540 a month on hair products, make-up, and fake tanners, compared to $360 on their physical well-being.”
