Barbadian singer and fashion mogul, Robyn Rihanna Fenty aka Rihanna recently hosted her 5th annual Diamond Ball and she had an inspiring message to share about black women. The 31-year-old throws the annual gala in support of the Clara Lionel Foundation, which she founded in honour of her grandparents, Clara, and Lionel Braithwaite.
The organization which obviously is close to her heart supports and funds global education, health, and emergency response programs and also engages in advocacy to improve the quality of life of children around the world.
The multitalented businesswoman was the last to arrive on the red carpet donning a black velvet gown. However, before she was whisked away from the red carpet, she had a message for fellow black women.
I’m a black woman, I came from a black woman who came from a black woman and I’m gonna give birth to a black woman, so it’s a no-brainer.
That’s who I am, it’s the core of who I am, in spirit and in DNA. And I’ll always stand up for who I believe in, who I love, who I know and who I respect.
My mother has raised me to be an incredible woman.
My mother is an incredible example of how to fight through obstacles in life.
I’m sure her mom taught her that and that’s how I’m going to be.
We are impeccable, we’re special and the world is going to have to deal with that.
