Diva Toni Braxton is paying tribute to another legendary woman, the late and great Maya Angelou.
Braxton remembered the civil rights activist and iconic writer with a gorgeous photo shoot and inspirational note to all black women who are ready to march and fight for things to change in America.
The mother of two teen boys told her followers it was urgent to rise against racism, injustice, and inequality.
The “He Wasn’t Man Enough” and “Un-Break My Heart” singer wrote: “Maya Angelou is the original Phenomenal Woman, would’ve been 90 years-old today. Not only was she an iconic poet and author, but she also was a civil rights leader. In this urgent moment of social activism, let us remember what she so beautifully taught us: phenomenal black women will be seen and heard, and we will always rise to the occasion. #wewillrise”
Many applauded the Faith Under Fire: The Antoinette Tuff Story star and were quick to remind her that she too is a Phenomenal Woman.
