After a year in which black women on the front lines fought for freedom at the same time, POPSUGAR is honoring their resilience in this month of black history with a celebration of the light they continue to find in dark times.
Black stars are constantly asked about the current state of the world and its people, but questions like “What do you enjoy?” are much rarer. So much so that many of them enjoy the variety when the question is asked. This indicates how often society prioritizes the happiness and well-being of black women (spoiler alert: very rare). This story, however, is just the opposite: a chance for black women to stand in the warmth of what fills them.
We asked some of our favorite shining stars where they are currently finding the light. From Saweetie’s love for oysters, to Angelica Ross’ deep appreciation for black drag culture, to Tiffany Haddish as Tiffany Haddish’s biggest fan, here are 14 delightful answers to a question that black women are not asked enough.
