Good Morning!

I hope everyone had a great Mother’s Day and is enjoying the summer weather! I went to the Summer Peace Rally on 63rd Street Beach for Black Catholic elementary schools in Chicago yesterday where I was invited to say a farewell speech to the 8th grade class! Special thanks to Deacon Leroy Gill and the Black Catholic Deacons of the Archdiocese of Chicago for the invitation. Photos are below:) 

We are three months out from the Miss Black USA Pageant! Please support Miss Black Illinois! #Leggo
