“I couldn’t dare do that. For what? Who gains? Not my people. I just couldn’t be a sellout. An enabler. There’s things within that organization I don’t agree with and I was not about to go and be of service to them in any way.” - On Kaepernick + Super Bowl

I love Montgomery. Some of my best memories in my life happened there. With my family. And my father. He’d be so proud of this election outcome. A new era for The Gump. Congrats, Mayor Reed!

Steven Reed became the first black mayor of Montgomery, Alabama, in the city's 200-year history on Tuesday. "Let this go far beyond Montgomery... we made a statement here tonight." https://cbsn.ws/2OBoW1J

Thank you, @jack and @Larakate and all the folks at @Twitter for this. What @tylerperry has done is forever part of both film history and African-American history. And deserved acknowledgment. You did that. Nicely done. xo. A.

@ava @TwitterMoments Hi Ava - you're right. We know Tyler opened up this studio because he feels unseen by Hollywood and we should have given this more attention. This is truly historic and we dropped the ball.

Since @TwitterMoments ignored me, let me try @TwitterMovies. Maybe they value the achievement and can walk across the hall or wherever the Twitter people do their things and make something happen. 🤷🏽‍♀️
