Sisters with class and Soul - By Hi-Yellow


The december issue with Nia, Sanaa and Gabrielle was excellent. It is so exciting to see positive sisters as role models in this cold-hearted world. It is nice to see that Black women can complement one another for a job well done instead of bringing one another down. I wish that more women will start to recognize that it's okay to do that!
