It’s appropriate that I fell madly, deeply in love with Toni Morrison’s mastery of language while attending Howard University. Maybe it was because I was sitting in classrooms or walking in spaces she’d walked before me, but somehow her words took on a life all of their own. They were the same words I’d read many times before. Words that I myself had used with audacity in my little sentences thinking myself a writer, and hilariously a poet. On Howard’s campus Toni Morrison’s words vibrated with a rhythm and heartbeat of their own. Like their writer, they made absolutely no apology for being everything.

Are there words for our Beloved Toni Morrison? Is the English language expansive enough to truly explain and encompass her depth? It wasn’t when Maya Angelou, or Ruby Dee, Aretha, or countless others died.Toni Morrison made words move. She breathed life into them, and those words, her words moved our souls. I don’t have the ability to shape and pull the English language in her masterful way. This tribute is heartfelt, yet deeply inadequate because today language fails me.

Teasha Bivins is a full-fledged super hero,  making super human things appear normal. Sorry Wonder Woman, life comes at you fast sometimes.

If I started naming and defining all of her job titles, descriptions, and duties her birthday (October, 20), would be over long before I finished. She’s smart, accomplished, beautiful, and the fly behind Michael Bivins’ fly.  As descriptive as those words are they only scratch the surface of who and what the dynamo  is to so many people. In addition to being Michael Bivins’ wife, Teasha is also the mother of the couple’s four gorgeous daughters, a high-powered real estate broker, an executive producer, fashionista, daughter, sister, friend, god-mother, and well you get the point…. She’s a meta-human.

I’m an NE 4 Lifer, but I didn’t show up to the party until 1985 or 86. Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky, Mike, Ralph, and Johnny of New Edition are The Temptations, The Jacksons, and The Beatles of my generation. Period, full stop don’t argue with me about this.
They provided the soundtrack of our lives. We sang each hit and tried, some unsuccessfully, to recreate their intricate choreography. We’ve gone from wanting to be Candy Girls to playing Can You Stand the Rain at our weddings, to playing I’m Still In Love With You at our anniversary parties/vowel renewals to yes, playing Is This The End at divorce parties. Don’t even get me started on that madness, but yes divorce parties are a real thing.
