Crime, Memes, and New York: Woman Becomes Ph.D Candidate at N.Y.U After Serving 20 Years in Prison for Murder @balleralert Read More: www.balleralert.comm Woman Becomes Ph.D Candidate at N.Y.U After Serving 20 Years in Prison for Murder - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In 1996, MichelleJones was charged with murder and neglect of her four-year-old son. While incarcerated in an Indiana prison for more than two decades, the NY Times reports that Jones became a published scholar of American history and used the prison library to further her education. During her sentence, Jones, alongside a group of inmates, produced the best research project for the Indiana Historical Society, in addition to writing several dance compositions and plays, one of which is set to open at an Indianapolis theater in December. She also got certified as a paralegal and received a bachelor’s degree in 2004. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After spending 20 of an initial 50-year sentence behind bars, Jones was released. The very next day, Jones took her talents to New York University (NYU) to join the school’s doctoral program, only after her application was accepted and later denied by Harvard University’s history program, which was her first choice. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although, Jones was among 18 applicants out of over 300 for the program, her application was overturned after some professors raised concerns about her application. While other professors supported Jones, calling her “one of the strongest candidates in the country last year, period,” Jones was ultimately denied for minimizing her crime “to the point of misrepresentation.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to reports, Jones got pregnant as a result of non-consensual sex with a high school senior, at the age of 14.

Beautiful, Books, and Donald Glover: Black Excellence: Donald Glover and Lena Waithe Make History at 2017 Emmy Awards @balleralert Black Excellence: Donald Glover and Lena Waithe Make History at 2017 Emmy Awards - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Sunday, black excellence took over the 2017 Emmy Awards after DonaldGlover and LenaWaithe made history, becoming the first black winners in their categories. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Glover, who has been a fan-favorite in all aspects of his very diverse career, took home his very first Emmy award for Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series for his FX dramedy “Atlanta.” The win etched Glover’s name in the Emmy record books, as he became the first-ever black director to win in that category. He also snapped the four-year streak of female directors, who previously dominated the category. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Man! First I want to thank the great algorithm that put us all here,” Glover said, during his acceptance speech. “I want to thank my parents, who are in the audience. This is nuts! …I just love everybody out here for letting me be up here, so thank you. Thank you all.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In turn, Waithe became the first-ever black woman to win the Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series for her work on the “Thanksgiving” episode from season 2 of “Master of None.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I see each and every one of you,” she said, during her speech. “The things that make us different, those are our superpowers. Every day when you walk out the door, put on your imaginary cape and go out there and conquer the world because the world would not be as beautiful as it is if we weren’t in it.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Congratulations to Glover and Waithe on their historical night!

Beautiful, Bless Up, and Creepy: Pupper does an awoo Ladies do me a favor. Just one. Next time a man who's a complete (and unwelcome) stranger walk up and say that u beautiful, say "I know ☺️." Just like that. U get me? "I know ☺️." (With that same expression as the emoji - u got it in u, just try 🤗). And watch his brain explode and come out of his ears and all u see is white matter all over the walls while his eyes pop out of his head like he just been electrocuted. Now I know what u thinking: "but smash! I'm not a cocky asshole! I'm a sweet girl! Even if a creepy dude says I'm pretty, I still reply with 'awww thank you, you're sweet.'" And that's a very sweet reply. But the beauty of "I know ☺️" is that u change the tone of the conversation (actually, u end one that u didn't ask to start!) - you're expressing that his validation is not necessary - u don't need to be validated by random men - you're aware of your worth - u woke - u special - u smart - u very smart - u KNOW YOURSELF. U feel me? Just try it once. "I know ☺️." Aight? Bless up 😍😂😂😂 (Credit my dear lil homegirl who fortuitously called me after I had writer's block a few days ago while her son, her cat AND her new doggo from the shelter were all simultaneously wilding out to give me ideas to write about - bless you mama - sorry to add another distraction! 😍❤️😂)
