My Birthday Vacation

Every year, my family and I go out of the country for my birthday which is on July 11th. This year we toured South Africa. It was extraordinary! This picture from my trip is one of my favorites. We visited Safari Primary School in Hlabisa. The children loved having us there - running to jump in pictures. The ratio of boys to girls in the school is very high so I had all the girls gather for a picture, including the teacher. Smile, ladies!

John Singleton

Take no encounter with a friend for granted.

I recently attended the memorial service for my friend, director John Singleton. I had seen him several months ago at the birthday party for our mutual friend, Samuel L. Jackson. I had no idea that would be the last time. I am so saddened by his passing.

John was an extraordinary person - changing Hollywood by telling stories of African American culture that few had seen before. His memorial service was an uplifting one - full of family and friends whose lives he had impacted.

I will miss him greatly but, his legacy lives on. To honor him, we should all strive for excellence and inclusion and to be bold in our storytelling.
