My Design of (More Than) A Decade: How Janet Jackson Shaped My Womanist Self Concept

And then one day, my teen brother (and future collaborator) decides that he no longer wants to be the lead singer of his family's successful music group. He has more art to give the world as a solo artist and in turn, establishes his independence as a young man the way college-bound students do with their parents every summer and fall. My transition would require something more Earth-shattering.

Happy 🎂 to the Queen of Pop (who happens to be the little sister of the King of Pop) Janet Damita Jo Jackson! #Janet25 #52
