Essence explained that Mustafa watched Tahmesha’s life slip away after giving birth to their son.  He processed his emotions and developed a deeper appreciation for life.  Mustafa showers his son in love and light.  He reminds us to find a place where there’s joy and the joy will burn out the pain.

#BlackMenSmiling is similar to #BlackBoyJoy.  Images of black men smiling from ear-to-ear are being shared on social media and I’m loving it.  #BlackMenSmiling is the right way to start Black History Month.  Comedian Dennis Banks started the trend from his Twitter account @felonious_munk.
