This past weekend, Taraji P. Henson, “Cookie’d” her way through Detroit for Women’s Empowerment Expo 2017. As the keynote speaker, she did everything we expected and more as she rocked the stage for a crowd of 3000+ beautiful women (and men, too).
In her speech, she touched out chasing your dreams and not allowing “they” (as DJ Khaled would say) to tear you down. She also encouraged us to lift up our sisters no matter what the situation is! The speech was genuine and from the heart. The “yaas”,”speak it”, and “that’s it!” coming from the audience should speak for it self.
