Today In Black History: Remembering B. Smith

Model, restaurant owner and lifestyle guru, B. Smith died Saturday night in her home from Alzheimer’s. She was 70.  In 1976 she became the first black woman featured on the cover of Mademoiselle magazine. She opened 3 restaurants in New York City, Long Island and Washington, DC. Smith also had her own cooking and lifestyle show, B. Smith with Style, which made its debut in 1997.

Often unfairly called the black Martha Stewart, B. Smith was a legend in her own right. Smith embodied glamour affluence, poise, grace and Afrocentrism. B. Smith rocked natural hair before it was popular in the main stream. She was always different but yet the same. She spoke to many black people who thought that’s exactly me.   We drink wine.  We are cultured.  Conversely she showed others a broader or image of the African-American.

I'm still trying to figure it out too! I'm a child of God that has a lot to say. I've been given a platform on the air to say it but I tend to be a bit lengthy so enter my website. The "confessions" you see on my website are not the gossip kind but rather conversations with artists, authors, speakers and teachers within the faith-based community. Also, my journey has been colorful, rich and sometimes really hard so, I look for answers and respite through writing. My mom wanted me to write a book  and I'm working on that, so bear with me as I fumble my way through. I'm working on balancing my extremely fun work life with my personal life that is filled with challenges these days. I know that God will see me to victory so... welcome to my life. ~Randi
