Some people may think we’re joking when we talk about “Black Don’t Crack.” But with more than a few examples, including Elise Neal and Naomi Campbell’s mother, Valerie Morris-Campbell, it’s anything but a game. The melanin is a blessing.

And if you don’t believe me, just check out actress Vanessa Bell Calloway donning her old Princess Imani costume from Coming To America.

This year marks the 28th anniversary of the 1988 film. And as a way to pay homage, Calloway put the costume back on today, at 59-years-old. And from the looks of things, not much has changed in her physical appearance since then.

I think what is so inspiring about Bell-Calloway’s story is that not only has she managed to keep it right and tight over the years, she is also a six year breast cancer survivor.

Handclaps and kudos to Ms. Bell-Calloway. We’re trying to be like her when we grow up.
