As you honor my father today, please honor my mother, as well. She was the architect of the King Legacy and founder of @TheKingCenter, which she founded less than three months after Daddy died. Without #CorettaScottKing, there would be no #MLKDay. #MLK #BelovedCommunity
Over the years I’ve given and raised lots of money for @minniespantry founded by @cherylaction because they are angels in the Texas community. This year a lot of people are feeling food insecurity, so I’m proud to support them with another donation to help them keep helping!
And one faithful morning, @QuincyDJones saw me on AM Chicago, said I should audition, and the rest is movie history! So here’s to the powerful messages I still carry from that movie. And for all the moviegoers who still recite this scene to me until this day! 💜💜💜
35 years ago today, #TheColorPurple premiered. I’ve never wanted anything in my life more than I wanted to be in that movie. When I read the book the first time, I bought copies to hand them out to people. I told everyone I wanted to be in the movie. It was that deep.
.@TVLine nominated @MsLynnWhitfield as a Performer of the Year. They said they’d give her ALL the amens for this passionate sermon in #Greenleaf's finale. Well I’ll add some hallelujahs, pass the collection plate around, & give her a standing O! Bravo, bravo Lynn! Take your BOW🙏🏽
