    This sounds like a great idea. I love the fact that Macy’s is honoring someone that many people may not know about. I’m not sure I understand why they are having a Soul Jam (seems unnecessary), but I do love the other events they have on tap!

    This is good news. Clothing lines should reach out to all races, just like WHBM who also hired black models to represent their clothing line.
