Subject: RE: RIP Miriam Makeba
Ditto what everyone else has written about Miriam Makeba's music and activism.

I want to also thank Miriam Makeba for being a wonderful role model for many Black women throughout the world who had diffculty recognizing their physical beauty.

I used past tense but Miriam Makeba will always be a model of a beautiful, caring, strong Black woman.
