Tamron turned the sourest lemons (NBC execs served) into sweetest lemonade for those that needed it the most.
Before the former TODAY show anchor–who was pushed out to make room for
white privilege Megyn Kelly–could throw up her deuces to this latest chapter, she gathered up high fashion memorabilia for Housing Works.
Housing Works is an advocacy hub that uses entrepreneurial methods (thrift stores in New York City, Albany, Mississippi, Washington D.C., Haiti and Puerto Rico) to help homeless and underserved living with HIV/AIDS. The non-profit assists in getting them quality healthcare, housing and jobs by utilizing thrift store profits and donations.
Tamron, decked out in a onesie, gathered up her on-air wardrobe. She got Jimmy Choo, Louboutin, work clothes, party clothes…you name it. She donated it all to her fav org.
You know those red bottoms are gone.
Just like the entire James Baldwin collection at Sankofa Video Books & Cafe after Solange paid a surprise visit and bought 250 books for fans.
The “Cranes in the Sky” starlet took to the D.C. bookstore after performing at the Peace Ball last month. She announced her book givaway via Instagram and hundreds of Howard students came.

Washington, D.C.! Following her performance at the Peace Ball, our very own @saintrecords is making a surprise stop at filmmaker Haile Gerima's Sankofa Bookstore and Cafe (2714 Georgia Ave NW) today to buy books for the community. The invitation is open to everyone. Come by today between 4:30-5:45pm to grab a book of your choice and for fellowship with the singer-songwriter. Books are first come first serve and limited to one book per person. See you all there soon! 📸: @interviewmag
The Washingtonian reports the bookstore opened in 1997. Its collection focuses on books about African and African-American people and culture. Black Skin, White Masks by Frantz Fanon, The Autobiography of Malcolm X, and Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie are just some of the books Solange bought for attendees of her “woke” book club.
“I think that now more than ever we have to invest in community and fellowship,” Solange said as she greeted the crowd.
Let the giving tree continue.
