#CDNB #BlackHistory: Chaka Khan 
For over four decades Chaka Khan has reigned as soul diva supreme. The young Chicago girl with the big voice has become the most influential female vocalist since Aretha Franklin. She was born Yvette Marie Stevens in 1953, but took her stage name from an African Priestess.
Eight platinum albums and scores of number one hits later, she is being honored after 40 years of entertainment and philanthropic work. Her real passion is her “Chaka Khan Foundation” established in 1999 to help women suffering from the same drug dependency issues that once plagued Chaka herself. Chaka Khan is ‘every woman’ and an inspiration to us all.
"But really, we also need to learn how to love one another as women. How to appreciate and respect each other." 
                                  -Chaka Khan

 #CDNB #BlackHistory : Nina Simone
Her involvement in civil rights was spurred by an incident at her first classical piano recital at age 12. During the recital, her parents sat in seats in the front of the building to see her play, but were told to move to the back to make way for white guests. She wasn’t having that though. The young girl refused to perform until her parents were moved back to the front. 
"I had spent many years pursuing excellence, because that is what classical music is all about… Now it was dedicated to freedom, and that was far more important.”                               -Nina Simone

"Little girls with dreams become women with vision" has become a #CDNB motto to describe our plan to plant seeds in girls that will blossom as they become women. “Chase Dreams Not Boys” glitter embellishment on the left sleeve, quote featured on the back waistline.
