Queen of bold statements Ali kicked off her week with a powerful message, bedazzling "Protect Black Women" across her face. "Just because we are strong doesn't mean you can't protect us," she added in her caption. In the same spirit, Parker Kit Hill kept busy with two phones, writing "observin and swervin’ ... away from the ppl who don’t understand that all Black lives need to be protected at all cost." And a fresh-faced Alicia Keys continued to ask followers, "How are you showing up for Breonna Taylor?"
A few muses leaned into their glows as well. Samantha Mims celebrated hers with a lime green swipe of liner on the lids, berry-painted lips, and twists with blonde highlights, while model Aweng Chuol announced she's working on a new hair-care brand with dewy skin and long raven strands. Speaking of glowing, Naked Beauty Planet podcast host Brooke Devard enjoyed some well-deserved sun while advocating for the importance of wearing SPF. "Even the [baby] bump was lathered down in sunscreen," she wrote.
And self-care was a top priority, too. Indya Moore shed light on the importance of healing conversations, such as the one she had with Leyna Bloom. "I'm so happy to be reconnected with you and look forward to building on where we left off," wrote Moore in her caption. "The past few weeks have been quite revealing, and through these reveals I'm feeling so lucky and uplifted to have an opportunity to continue building on relationships with folks I always loved. We can't honor love if we don't honor growth and we can't honor growth if we don't pour into each other." Tracee Ellis Ross embraced a cathartic release of her own with a movement session. "When you feel stuck or stagnant and can’t find your way through, breathe and move," she said. "Move through it. Release through movement. Shake it out. Hold space for yourself, make space for yourself, allow process and love yourself the whole way through."
