Candice Patton has mastered the art of self love, and she is proving to the masses that, no matter how much society may beat you back, and police your looks, your attitude, deny you representation and deny you equal treatment, you too can love yourself, while simultaneously throwing shade where it’s due and standing up for yourself. She’s already influencing young black girls to see themselves as the beautiful queens that they are, and I can only imagine how many more she’ll inspire in their quest for self love.

Candice Patton is a gift from God, and every second she walks among us is a blessing.


Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPdoubletake

Weekend Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes and hashtags chosen by Instagram’s Community Team. For a chance to be featured on the Instagram blog, follow @instagram and look for a post announcing the weekend’s project every Friday.

This weekend’s prompt was #WHPdoubletake, which asked participants to capture creative photos of unique pairings. Every Monday we feature some of our favorite submissions from the project, but be sure to check out the rest here.


-“You probably can’t remember your family.”

- “Oh yes, I can when I want to. And that’s the point, really. I have to really want to, to bring them back in front of my eyes. The rest of the time they… they sleep in my mind and I forget. And so will you. Oh yes, you will. You’ll find there’s so much else to think about. To remember. Our lives are different to anybody else’s. That’s the exciting thing, that nobody in the universe can do what we’re doing.” - Second Doctor .
