Thank you to @BoF for showing the world how far we've come. Although we're not where we need to be yet, we're closer to our goal than we've ever been, and we finally have the tools that we need in order to reach it. #Harlem

GOD has my son-in-law, Jay Jackson. He has now been called on a greater mission. He was a father-in-law's miracle, and I will always be proud to call him my son.

Got a special delivery today from @elleusa. I'm featured in their new issue (available now). Such an honor to represent #Harlem and black designers worldwide while working with one of the most talented and humble people I've met in my nearly 40 years in fashion, @samiranasr. A true star.

On the set of @MarvelsLukeCage with #MikeColter. He's an incredible actor and an even better man. Despite being the star of the show, he went far out of his way to make me feel at home on set. #Character. All episodes from season 1 are now live on @Netflix. Tune in for a surprise! #Harlem is well represented.

Some things start out incredible, only to get even better with time. @TheRealJeffRedd's voice is one of them. Amazing performance last night at @MarcusCooks' #SaveurSuppers event in celebration of the new @RoosterHarlem cookbook. #Harlem

In 1985, a young designer came to my store seeking guidance. He had incredible talent and electric ambition, so I took him under my wing. I let him design and produce his own t-shirts in my store and sell them to the various entertainers that would come to shop with me. After mastering his craft, he went on to open his own store in Harlem, design the @BadBoyEnt logo for @IamDiddy, and create a huge movement with his own line called #Ferg54. That movement also changed lives by creating lots of jobs for people in our communities. Years later, his son, @ASAPFerg, is one of the biggest names in hip hop and I could not be more proud. #Harlem
