Currently starring in Eureka, but I will always love her for being Elisa Mazza on Gargoyles. Plus, she’s beautiful.

    Yay! I love Eureka, and I love Ms. Richardson’s character! And her beautifulness!

    Ok, I hope it’s ok to suggest some more photos of black, beautiful women here (and I hope it’s ok that I’m a white woman doing so).

    1) Michaëlle Jean, who was Canada’s 27th Governor General (our Head of State as representative of Queen Elizabeth II); she served from 09/27/2005 to 09/30/2010. From her bio on the Governor General’s official website (http://www.gg.ca/document.aspx?id=55):

    Michaëlle Jean was born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. She immigrated to Canada with her family in 1968, fleeing the dictatorial regime of the time.

    After studying comparative literature at the Université de Montréal, she taught Italian in the Université’s Department of Literature and Modern Languages. During her studies, Ms. Jean worked for eight years with Quebec shelters for battered women, while actively contributing to the establishment of a network of emergency shelters throughout Quebec and elsewhere in Canada. She later ventured into journalism and became a highly regarded journalist and anchor of information programs at Radio-Canada television and CBC Newsworld. She is married to Jean-Daniel Lafond and they have a daughter, Marie-Éden.

    And here are the pictures! This one is taken by Sgt. Eric Jolin in 2006: http://www.theepochtimes.com/n2/images/stories/large/2008/12/26/Governorgeneral.jpg (smaller version: http://www.theepochtimes.com/n2/mambots/content/multithumb/thumbs/350.0.1.0.16777215.0.stories.large.2008.12.26.Governorgeneral.jpg)

    And here is another one, which comes with the following caption: “Governor General Michaelle Jean conducts the annual Inspection of the Ceremonial Guard on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, Tuesday June 22, 2010. (Adrian Wyld / THE CANADIAN PRESS).” The photo: http://images.ctv.ca/archives/CTVNews/img2/20100622/600_cp_michaelle_jean_100622.jpg?2

    2) Janelle Monáe, who is “a Grammy-nominated American singer from Atlanta…. [She] has been called ‘a different kind of diva’ by Vogue Magazine and ‘a true visionary … one of the most important signings of my career’ by Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs.” (source of text and photo: http://www.purdue.edu/newsroom/events/2010/100812ConvosSnoopDogg.html) Here is the lovely, if large, picture: http://news.uns.purdue.edu/images/2010/janelle.jpg. I love her music – this song is one of my favourites – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lqmORiHNtN4

    I’ll add some more later if I have time!

    Warm regards,
