A Violent Past, An Empowering Now: Urban Bush Babe’s Cipriana Quann (via StyleLikeU)

We asked Urban Bush Babes founder, Cipriana Quann, to be a part of the What’s Underneath Project because her courage is as audacious as her beautiful crown of hair, which we have been coveting since we first met her a couple of years ago. “For me, suffering means strength,” she said, and, for today’s episode in partnership with Chantelle Lingerie, she bravely reveals for the first time her struggles about how she and her sister grew up with a mentally ill, physically abusive father who stayed at home while their mother worked. Cipriana has used the 14 years of her dad’s violence and manipulation as fuel for self-empowerment and self-acceptance. She dropped out of the conventional modeling world that told her that she had to change her hair to get work and launched her very successful blog that has disrupted the status quo. “I decided a long time ago that I wasn’t going to let my past decide who I was,” Cipriana declares. “I don’t want to carry anger. After years, I feel peaceful, I feel at home, and I feel like me.”

Hey, just a random question: How did you feel when the actress for Vivian Banks (Janet Hubert-Whitten) was replaced with a black woman of a lighter skin tone later on (Daphne Maxwell-Reid)?

   It irritated the hell out of me. I didn’t even like the new Vivian. Old Vivian had better acting skills which made her character all around more enjoyable. -whackedup.

"Donation to off-set the funeral expenses for Joan Colbert and Veronica Roach.

Joan Colbert was very active in the Long Branch community and mother to every child she encountered. She was a foster mother to Veronica and took care of her from birth. Veronica was a bright, beautiful 10 year old. Both will be missed greatly.

Due to the sudden and expected nature of this event we are asking for any contribution you donate.”

The Monmouth County Prosecutors Office needs your help in solving the gruesome double slaying this past Friday of a 62-year old Long Branch woman and the 10-year old girl she was raising.

The Asbury Park Press reports that

autopsies have determined that the deaths of a Long Branch woman and the 10-year-old girl she was raising were homicides.

Colbert and the 10-year-old were found dead Friday in a first-floor apartment in a home on Lippincott Avenue after police were called at 5:22 p.m., reporting suspicious circumstances there.
The Prosecutor’s Office declined to release a cause or time of death, or to say if authorities are searching for suspects or have someone is custody.

The Roach and Colbert families would greatly appreciate any and all donations.

Help if you can, and send this out loud and far.
