"Good Times" star, BernNadette Stanis, has been showing her support for the "Black Lives Matter Movements" by sharing inspirational quotes from Dr. Martin Luther King and Maya Angelo.


She also observed "Blackout Tuesday" by going dark on social media. Recently, she shared a personal statement promoting solidarity among black women, she wrote:

"We are BLACK LADIES! We build...We don't tear down other BLACK LADIES...We have felt the pain of being torn down."


In her inspiring message, Stanis made an oath that, as a black woman, she had made the conscious decision uplifting others, she said, "we have decided we will be deliberated about building others!"

She pointed out how women are sometimes too quick to criticize, instead of creating a space to build each other up. She argued that with all the negativity going around, black women should do something positive.


The actress encouraged women to upload photos of themselves wearing black and tag their friends in the post to encourage them to pass along the same message of solidarity and elevation among women.

"So proud of you, sister," said one person. Another fan had nothing but praises for her and added, "thank you, BernNadette, for the encouraging message." One fan couldn't help commenting on her beauty.
