Do y'all remember that fine looking man in Girl's Trip that played Jada Pinkett's love interest? No? He also acts in Queen Sugar and his name is Kofi Siriboe. Dark chocolate with a nice smile...aka #GrapefruitBae Yeah, him!

Well, his mother is a beautiful queen that I had the chance to meet and interview during her event: The Diaspora Dialogues 3rd Annual International Women of Power Luncheon in Los Angeles.

Koshie Mills is her name and she's the visionary founder of The Diaspora Dialogues. Koshie brought together hundreds of black women from around the world to celebrate sisterhood at the Arbat Banquet Hall on Saturday, March 7, 2020 from 11:00 am to 3:30 pm. The star-studded event featured an elegant afternoon with champagne cocktail reception, 3-course luncheon, live performances, awards presentation and a few surprises. This year's theme was centered around women who are Innovators and Change Agents in Entertainment, Business, Fashion, Music, Beauty and Diaspora.

Loni Love hosted the event, bringing all the "realness" (see what I did there? lol) needed among hundreds of black women. Her full interview can be found on our YouTube Channel, along with the other presenters, guests and honorees. In the meantime, check out the video below that feature Loni and other celebs like Amara Le Negra, Yvette Nicole Brown, Cree Summer, Kimberly Paige, Nana Ghana, Tiffany Persons and more! Not to mention, me, your host, LaCora Stephens.

P.S. - Diaspora Dialogues was such a positive and inspiring event. Dare I say, this was one of the most uplifting red carpets that The YES! Show has ever worked? I left feeling motivated and beautiful. It was all sisterly love on the carpet, followed with compliments and hugs. That doesn't happen in Hollywood, you hear me? I just have to thank God for such a great experience. I am so blessed to be black. But I digress. Watch the video below and tell me your favorite response, look and/or inspiration
