Beyoncé and JAY-Z’s Daughter Blue Ivy Carter Could Be Earning Millions Soon

Blue is growing up fast, showing more and more personality each time we see her — from her musical talents to her already impressive fashion sense. We’d expect nothing less from the child of the 36-year-old pop icon and 47-year-old hip hop mogul.

What Does It Mean To Be “Black Butterfly Beautiful”

The image of the butterfly has come to define the many expressions of the feminine black consciousness and for a good reason. The butterfly is the perfect articulation of the exquisite beauty of nature. Whether tiny or large, brightly colored or more subdued, the butterfly’s allure is undeniable. Each one displays its own unique patterns and hues, and no one species outshines any other.

All African-Americans share a glorious history of struggle and perseverance that has funneled into the modern black renaissance.
