Black Beauty Appreciation(Melanin Heaven Part 2)

.MH2....

I got such a great response from my post Melanin Heaven,I decided to do a part two.  Also a few subscribers said they would like to see a part two.  I thought I did a pretty good job with the first post.  Not sure if I can top that one.  But I’ll give it a try. I tried to find some pics of women that are not too well known. I wanted to introduce you to some new faces. So here are some pics of some gorgeous black women all throughout the African diaspora.  After this post there will be no doubt that black women are the most beautiful and diverse women on the planet! I hope you enjoy the pictures.  And be sure to comment or post any pics of black women you find beautiful.  Thank you and enjoy this second edition of Melanin HeavenBeauty Portrait....

Black Beauty Appreciation(Melanin Heaven)

Kushite Cover...

I have a lot of pictures I’ve collected over the years. I have collected hundreds of beautiful images of black women over a period of time.  Many of them I have never used in a post. So I thought I would post some of the beauties from the 70’s,80’s,90’s…up into the present.  You may recognize some of the faces.  Others you may not. Some of them are beauty contest winners,famous actresses,aspiring models and singers.  This post is open for anyone to put up pictures of black women they think are beautiful or exceptional in some way.  This post is a celebration of all the beautiful women in the African diaspora.  Or as I call it Melanin Heaven! Enjoy!

Teyonah Parris

Teyonah

Teyonah is one of the latest additions to the critically acclaimed cast of AMC’s hit show MAD MEN.  Currently she is in NY filming a number of feature films. The latest being THEY CAME TOGETHER where she is working with writer/director David Wain and Michael Showalter.  Teyonah will be seen alongside Amy Poehler in this hilarious send up of the romantic comedy genre.  You can also spot Teyonah’s smile  in a McDonald’s commercial that is airing nationwide.

We were all introduced to Ms. Parris in 2010. The  year marked two debut performances for her: the Great White Way and the Silver Screen.  Teyonah shared the stage at Lincoln Center with Jeffrey Wright and Mos Def in Broadway’s new show, A FREE MAN OF COLOR. She also celebrated the  release of her first feature film, Columbia Pictures romantic comedy, HOW DO YOU KNOW, starring Reese Witherspoon, Jack Nicholson, Owen Wilson and Paul Rudd (dir. James L. Brooks).

As the middle child and only girl, she was a self-proclaimed tomboy and beauty queen, always thriving on being unique and never adhering to stereotypes.  She started her journey in front of audiences by participating in pageants and modeling.  An early notable memory is of her winning the title of Ms. Lower Richland High School, where she was the first freshman and African American on record to win the title.  In addition to modeling and softball, Teyonah also participated in her high school’s cheerleading, step, and dance teams.

Similarly to her non-acting interests, Teyonah’s career already spans many fields, including film, television, and theatre.  Previous credits include a guest spot in CBS THE GOOD WIFE, and the dramatic short, EMPIRE CORNER.  As a graduate of the prestigious Juilliard School in New York City, Ms. Parris has already worked with such notable names as Jeffrey Wright, Julianna Margulies, Josh Charles, Reese Witherspoon, among others.  She has also trained under distinguished professors, Richard Feldman and Wendy Waterman.  During her time in undergrad, Teyonah performed in numerous productions, with Celimene in Moliere’s The Misanthrope, as her favorite role to date

When she is not acting, Teyonah supports causes close to her heart, such as embracing  your natural beauty, empowering our youth, and raising HIV/AIDS awareness. Ms. Parris also recently took part in the Designers Against Aids, photo shoot for World Aids Day.
