‘I Am Entitled’ – Celebrating Curvy Women

Poetic Justice Jeans “Love Your Curves” www.PoeticJusticeJeans.com

*Poetic Justice Jeans believe that women with curves deserve equal access to stylish attire that fits their shape and fashion perspective. Since the launch of Poetic Justice Jeans women from across the globe have marveled over the fact that they can flaunt their physique in a variety of fashion forward jeans that not only look great but fit them to a tee.

Poetic Justice Jeans  Designer Kalia Calloway:  “What makes Poetic Justice different from all the other lines out there is that we’re covering different types of curvy girls- the curvy girl that has hips, the curvy girl that has a thicker butt, the curvy girl that maybe doesn’t have as a big of a butt but has hips.”

Though there may be an abundance of style in the fashion arena, when it comes to equality in the availability of sizes, that’s a different issue that Poetic Justice Jeans has sought address in their ever growing popular brand of stylish and affordable women’s wear.

Poetic Justice Jeans  Designer Kalia Calloway:  “We’ve addressed all different shapes.  So the most important aspect when designing for us was to make sure that we cover the gaping issue in the back.  The gaping issue is basically where the spot in the lower back just doesn’t fit tightly enough and you have to wear a belt or cover it with a shirt.  Another part that we wanted to address was not really covering up  her (as an any woman’s) curves but actually showing off her curves and allowing her to just show off her hips, and show off her butt and let her be proud of her body as opposed to trying to hide her body.”

*When Kalia Calloway set out to be a fashion designer her journey was both personal and professional. She understood the thrill of the shopping experience that was often diluted by the frustration of trying to find the right fit. When she joined Poetic Justice Jeans, she met her artistic match and was in sync with their core belief that women are not just a size but a work of art comprised of beautifully molded shapes and curves.

Filmmaker Gina Prince-Bythewood Issues Urgent Open Letter

gina prince bythewood

Writer-Producer-Director Gina Prince-Bythewood issues Open Letter about her film Beyond The Lights. ” We need positive images to counter the negative portrayals we see every day.”

*After the first preview audience screening of “Love & Basketball” a 17 year old Black boy said, “The movie taught me how to love.” Fourteen years later, after the first preview audience screening of “beyond the lights,” a 17 year old Black boy said, “I didn’t really believe in hope and love before, but this movie changed me.” That is why I make movies. Movies have power. Power to impact society and the choices we make. I want to entertain, but I also want to say something to the world.

Nate Parker, star and Gina Prince-Bythewood, writer/producer/director of Beyond The Lights. 2014

I love movies. And I dig a great love story; the kind that wrecks me, then builds me back up and leaves me inspired. I write what I want to see. I wanted to make a love story with two people of color in the lead. Not a romantic comedy. A love story. “Beyond the Lights” took incredible fight to get made. Four years of writing, and two years of overcoming “no.” Every studio balked. Twice. But I kept fighting. What gave me the courage was “Love & Basketball.” Every studio turned down that film, too. But I never gave up because I believed in it with my whole heart and soul.

I had the same passion for this story. People ask me all the time if I feel discriminated against as a black female director and I actually don’t. I get offered a ton of stuff. But I like to direct what I’ve written. I feel what’s discriminated against are my choices, which is to focus on people of color as real people. Those are the films that rarely get made and those are the films that take a lot more fight. But I’m up for the fight, because if we don’t fight for this we stay invisible. I want us to look up on the screen and see ourselves reflected beautifully. I want us to look up on screen and learn how to love the right way. I want us to look up on screen and see a black man who is strong, sexy, complicated, and real. I want us to look up on screen and see a black woman fighting to find her voice, find her authentic self and be brave enough to live an authentic life. I want us to look up on screen and be inspired to want more for ourselves, to want to love, and to love ourselves.

There is a perception within our community and the world that black people don’t love each other. That we don’t fight for each other. That perception is so dangerous. We need positive images to counter the negative portrayals we see every day. And positive doesn’t mean perfect. Perfect is boring. I want real. But more than anything, “beyond the lights” is a really good movie experience that I don’t want you to miss. It is the kind of movie that should be shared. That collective explosive reaction to character, story, and music is fun. The advanced screenings have been like revivals. Audiences break into applause during the movie. Phenomenal performances. Insane chemistry between Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Nate Parker. Dope music. Beautifully complex mother/daughter and father/son relationships that are rarely explored with people of color.  You will laugh. You may cry. You will feel. And you may be changed. I hope you check out the film over this holiday weekend. It is a time to be grateful. It is time to be inspired. It is a time to fight.
