Last week I was on tumblr scrolling down and Issa Rae reblogged a video of a speech that Jenifer Lewis gave at a film festival following the premiere of Baggage Claim. I have always loved Jenifer Lewis. She just feels like an auntie.
I don’t know what I expected when I clicked on the clip, but I got way more than I bargained for. It was raw, real, powerful and made me want to get up and take over the world. She talked some good ish. I had to post the video because I think people need to see it. It’s only like 4 minutes, but every second is amazing.
Enough of the buildup, here it is:
Great ish! Some great quotables. When she said, the elevator to success is broken, take the stairs, I almost started shouting.
Tell us what you thought of what Miss Jenifer Lewis had to say.
