\"It's about self love,\" explained Laniece McGee. She was a guest along with fellow member Shemelian Bowman on the CBS 58 News at 4.
\"Our Stories with Michele\" is a regular segment giving deserving attention to homespun stories of people doing incredible things in the local community.
Big, Beautiful and Blessed seeks to ignore the negative prejudice that exists against larger women. They meet the ignorance head on with positive outreach, including a calendar showing beauty in its many forms.
The women selected for the calendar will give back to the community by donating time and a percentage of calendar sales to groups that help young women.
