A Lil Black Girl’s Hero

Lets’s take it back to the 1980’s…..

Whitney Houston was a role model to lil black girls like myself growing up.

I wanted to sing like her & look like her. She was not overtly sexual. She never appeared scantily clad in magazines or in her videos. Whitney was beautiful and tall. Whitney was our pretty,classy,BLACK princess.


The whitney that people are most reminicing about right now in the media, is the 80’s whitney. When she was 19-25yrs old. I don’t think I’ve heard, The Greatest Love Of All so much in my life as I have these past 48 hours.

Despite her personal issues(which we all have). Whitney was … & STILL IS. A black girls hero.
