We realize that the work that the elders started must be continued. We honor them when we READ about how they did their work. We live in a global world, and we are taking their work global. If we are not reminding you of what they did, and why and how they did it, then we would not be loyal to their legacy. If we do not know our past, how can we prepare the way for our future? Who among us can deny that? READ!! READ!!! READ!!!! Our salvation depends on it. 📖 Read about the work: https://www.essence.com/feature/the-changemakers/
@BHorowitz0 and @FeliciaHorowitz: Magical is the only word that I can use to describe the experience you gave me at your house in San Francisco for my book signing. I think sometimes that I am dreaming the things that are happening in my life right now, but now I am sure that I am definitely dreaming. You have an amazing place—it is a resort! It can’t be a house. And all of the incredible people who attended are so larger-than-life. I have never been in the company of so many high-accomplished people. Thank you, thank you, and thank you again! I am so humbled by the great experience you gave me. #HorowitzCEOBBQ 📚 #DapperDanMadeInHarlem 📸: @JelaniDay

Finally!! The world will know my full story, beyond being a brand, but as a Black man finding his place in the world. My struggle against poverty, crime, and drugs; social rebellion; and my quest for spiritual enlightenment. The tears, sadness, and the joys are all finally told. I am the sum total of everyone who has come into my life—thank you all. And thanks to everyone for supporting #DapperDanMadeInHarlem. 📚 #DapperDanMadeInHarlem available now, wherever books are sold.

This occasion here speaks volumes. @TrevorNoah interviewed me last night on @TheDailyShow about my memoir #DapperDanMadeInHarlem, and earlier that evening I interviewed him about his memoir #BornACrime. We each learned so much from each other’s books. African and African-American brothers on a journey. When we connect, the world respects. Thank you, my brother @TrevorNoah. 📚 Both books available now, wherever books are sold. 📸: @ImSeanGallagher

“I’ve been grinding, grinding all my life... Sacrifice, hustle paid the price.”- Nipsey Hussle. Is this really happening? 4 days away from the Met Gala, and all outfits are finished. #MadeInHarlem #MetGala2019 #redcarpet #MetGala #TheMet #dapperdanharlem
Note #25 “The hallmark of Camp is the spirit of extravagance” Notes on Camp, Sonya Sontag. It’s a star-studded lineup. Harlem will definitely be in attendance. #MadeInHarlem #MetGala2019 #redcarpet #MetGala #TheMet #dapperdanharlem
“Indeed the essence of Camp is its love of the unnatural: of artifice and exaggeration. And Camp is esoteric -- something of a private code, a badge of identity even, among small urban cliques.” Susan Sontag, Notes on Camp
“Remember the time?” We will never forget you. RIP good brother. Thank you for your many contributions to the culture.
