Monday’s Muse—Ameena Matthews


Hola peeps!  I hope that your V-Day weekend was filled with lots of love!  We are continuing to honor Black History month with our Monday’s Muse so we are showing respect to Ameena Matthews today.  If you aren’t familiar with her then don’t be ashamed because until Black Girls Rock 2013 I was in the dark as well.  However I am here to share and shed some light on this spectacular woman.

Mrs. Matthews is a community activist that focuses on peace building and social change; her start was in Chicago but quickly evolved and now she is internationally known.  She can be seen on several talk shows voicing her opinion on gang violence and in the 2011 documentary film ‘The Interrupters’Go here to watch the clip of the powerful speech she gave on Black Girls Rock 2013.  She is a truly pioneer of present and future black history!
