Jada Pinkett-Smith Pens Open Letter To Afeni Shakur


In the midst of Afeni Shakur‘s sudden passing, friend of the family and Tupac‘s childhood best-friend, Jada Pinkett-Smith pens an open letter paying her respects to the Black Panther activist and Philanthropist.

Check out below, as she pays tribute to who the world called their ‘Hero.’ She was definitely a strong woman.

Today I woke up to the news that Afeni had passed. My first thought was of Sekyiwa and the entire clan that loved Afeni. Then I remembered that I was in NY to attend a Mother’s Day event named after a song written about Afeni, Dear Mama. My heart tightened and then all kinds of memories flooded in. I quickly remembered how calm Afeni was especially during any crisis. She always had a way of making me believe all would be well. But my fondest memories of Afeni was spending time with her at Jamine Guy’s house as Jasmine was writing Afeni’s book. Tupac had passed, and now I was a business woman, wife, and a mother and we could talk real and I mean really real. I got to see where Pac got his passion, his ideals for equality and justice but most of all his depth of thinking. Afeni was a giant in her own right. Today she is reunited with her son and Sekyiwa has two majestic angels to look after her. One for each shoulder. Rest in peace Afeni, and give Pac a hug and a kiss from me.
