Precious Jewels Celebrate History
The Precious Jewels (Long Beach, California, United States) know how to throw a special event! Chapterette Moremi Nzinga says, “All who attended our gathering paid homage to Black History month by wearing garments relating to Black heritage/freedom in America. One of our sisters forgot to wear her ‘power to the people’ t shirt. We will let her pass due to she is almost 90, strong, alert, and has a fantastic sense of humor! The court of Precious Jewels resembled royalty wearing their various types of twenty first century formal galabeyas (dress) waiting to exhale to the crowds we imagined. Various court sisters wore their crowns to accentuate their galabeyas and presented themselves to Queen Johnetta with warm smiles. Beautiful women preparing their sisters with makeup for the Black History month celebration. This was so obviously from the heart.We cannot prevent aging, but we can continue to have fun, and respect our elders. Women having fun must care for their bodies as free women. We must listen to our inner souls accepting each other for who we are. We must maintain an open mind and soul, accepting the differences with all of our sisters during good times and bad times!” What a great event!
