Many VBG fans have asked me over the years to share photos of special people in their families and while I’ve shared a few, I haven’t been able to share as many as I would have liked. This #myVBG page was created so we can properly admire the VBG icons in your life. I want to see women like your grandmother who may remind you of Lena Horne or Diahann Carroll; a favorite diva aunt with the zest of a Josephine Baker or Gladys Bentley; a mother who brings to mind the heady brilliance of a Dr. Maya Angelou or Ruby Dee.

I would be honored to have you share the divas in your family here for the world to see. Upload your photos, tell us a brief story about her (name, city, date/location of photo, a fun VBG-ish fact about her and tag me on Twitter (@VintageBlkGlam) or Facebook with the hashtag #myVBG and #vbgbook.

Thank you – I can’t wait to see your #myVBG!
