Yes this is what we fellas meant back in the day when we referred to the positive and progressive sisters as:

"Black Queens"

But I don't even include folks like Rupaul in the mix!

Two thumbs up Chuck!!  She's not just beauty either.  She graduated from Yale University (1980), receiving her B.A. in African-American studies.

She'd probably like this site given her major.
