Oprah Winfrey hosts Special ‘Selma’ Screening, Sunday Brunch & more [PHOTOS]

Posted by | Ray Cornelius

Media mogul Oprah Winfrey hosted a special weekend of events promoting the upcoming release of Ava DuVernay’s Civil Rights drama, “Selma.”  A VIP screening of the film was held on Saturday night along with an exclusive after party dubbed “Legends Ball 2014.”

The event references the 2005 “Legends Ball” where Winfrey honored some of the biggest African-American female entertainers, models, and artists including Diana Ross, Tina Turner, Iman, Cicely Tyson, Ruby Dee, Chaka Khan, Mariah Carey, Coretta Scott King, Dr. Maya Angelou and others. This year’s “Ball” recognized a number of civil and social justice pioneers who paved the way for equality in the United States.

 Also in attendance were Martin Luther King III, Magic Johnson, Smokey Robinson, Babyface, Tyler Perry, Ellen DeGeneres, Stedman Graham, Gayle King, Portia de Rossi, Donna Brazile, Robin Roberts, Angela Bassett, Tracey Edmonds, Deion Sanders, Dr. Phil and more. There was also a Sunday Brunch that featured a soul-stirring performance from Gospel music icon, Bebe Winans.

“Selma”  chronicles the landmark 1965 voting rights campaign regarded as the peak of the civil rights movement. Led by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his band of brothers, the movement included several marches from Selma to Montgomery under dangerous opposition with one such event known as Bloody Sunday. The film produced by Pathe and Harpo Films will open in select theaters on December 25th.

Women’s Swimwear I’ve been working out for a solid 2.5 years and i haven’t really gone shopping for cute regular non workout clothes in awhile.

Why do I feel like everything is so ugh in stores? I’m not a fan of the peasant y crop top, bare shoulders,
huge sleeve look and I feel like that is all stores have now.
Am I old now? I’m going to go to H and American Eagle tomorrow and see if I can get some bralettes (I’m like a 34D
now ), dresses, rompers, shorts, and maybe new undies because my apparently muscular butt keeps giving me
lines or goes up my ass when I wear panties..

one piece swimsuits In January 2006, Brother Rice High, a Michigan Catholic school disinvited Automotion to an alumni fundraising event after repeated urging by the ADA.
The ADA held that the event “legitimizes pornography and the objectification of women.”
Though the high school’s decision was made in response to public pressure instead of an admission of wrongdoing by
the principal, the ADA still viewed it as a victory.
The dancers planned to donate their time to the fundraising event.[5]The ADA receives some funding from the Holland,
Michigan based Prince Foundation (formerly the Edgar and Elsa Prince Foundation), which funds many other Christian right groups including the Family Research Council and Focus
on the Family, which each received a little over a million dollars in 2003 and 2004, and 2003 and 2005, respectively.

In 1957, Alvin Roth in his partnership with Tobias Stone appropriated the abandoned term negative double to denote
a conventional double by responder over an overcall and gave it its current meaning.[1] The bid
was also briefly known as Sputnik, because it was as new as the satellite of that name that the Soviet
Union had recently launched. The term is still used sometimes in Europe.[1]The negative double is generally
forcing, but opener might pass to convert the double to a penalty double.
There is a special agreement called negative free bids, under which (after the overcall) the bid of a
new suit by responder is not forcing. Sexy Bikini
