Jill Scott

Philly soul woman Jill Scott dropped her empowering spoken-word piece, “Womanifesto," at Black Girls Rock! in 2011. "Strong legs that stroll off the 33 bus, or out of a money green Phantom comfortably,” she recited. "Knees that bend to pray, clean from Ajax washings. Hair that is thick and soft; thighs that betwixt, an amazing all-expense grand prize.” From her empowering words to her poised delivery, it’s simple to see how this awe-inspiring artist continues to #SHINESTRONG.
