Janelle Monae @janellemonae: Happy birthday to my great grandmother. I take your spirit, along with my grandmother and other great grandmother’s spirit, with me wherever I go. when I’m in need of help, trying to show more compassion and love I think of you. As I film this move set in the 60’s i think of you and the awful shit you had to endure. My fight becomes even stronger whenever I think of how society treated my grandmothers. Her name was Ruby Robinson. She would have been 89 today. Seen playing at her organ. She was incredible.
