In an ode to her mother, Diana Ross, Tracee Ellis Ross recreated her mom’s Work That Body video. In unprecedented levels of #blackgirlmagic Tracee explains on her blog why she made the video:
“I am keenly aware of how we as women (and most specifically women of color) are presented and portrayed in media and how we present ourselves. And here was my mama from almost 30 years ago on the surface doing something that often snags me in videos today but why did I feel differently about it?
Of course it’s fun to watch because its my mom looking stupid gorgeous (she was 36 and already had 3 kids -Rhonda, Chudney and I- by the time she shot this!! I mean, WHAT?!??!?!) and it’s a celebration of music and style and the 80’s. But, there is something more.”
