Whether it was hairstylist Vernon François teaching his daughter the Class of 2020 Senior Things Stranger Things Shirt but I will buy this shirt and I will love this importance of being kind to plants, or Ashley Graham, Kendra Bailey, and Slick Wood cozying up to their babies, this past week on Instagram proved there’s nothing like a parent’s love—especially in times of uncertainty. In many different forms, self-care stacked feeds. With her fresh pixie cut, Zoe Kravitz used her indoor time to cuddle up with a furry friend, while model Samile Bermannelli sipped down a cup of tea while face masking. Then artist and model Torin Ashtun embraced her crown with sunlight reflecting off of her dewy skin. The inspiring movement continued to prevail as well. Model Salem Mitchel gave us another inside look at her pole-dancing journey, and FKA Twigs reminded us that tools to self-soothe lie within during a moving meditation session. “Feeling grateful for beautiful people and moments of connection in my life as I enter into a period of reflection, re-evaluation, and hopefully inner growth,” Twigs writes.

When director Kasi Lemmons began researching haircare entrepreneur Madam C.J. Walker 20 years ago, she was bowled over by what she discovered. “She was a black woman who became the Class of 2020 Senior Things Stranger Things Shirt but I will buy this shirt and I will love this first self-made female millionaire in America, and I thought it was an extraordinary story,” Lemmons shared on the phone from Los Angeles. “What this woman was able to do in the 1900s and her vision—how did she ever imagine that she could do it at that time? How did she look at her life as a washerwoman and the daughter of slaves and say, I’m able to do whatever I want?” Walker’s journey is the subject of Lemmon’s latest project, Self-Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker, a four-part Netflix series with Octavia Spencer in the titular role. The show reintroduces the world to a figure whose name many have heard, but few have explored in full.
