Lupita's Oscar Dress Stolen!?!

Lupita Nyong'o's beautiful dress that is valued at more than $150k was stolen from her hotel room at the London West Hollywood. The dress apparently went missing between 8am and 9pm when she was away from the room.

Wallace was a star athlete and standout student in the segregated Nashville school district. After leaving high school, Wallace enrolled in Vanderbilt University in 1966. In 1967, he became the first Black varsity athlete to play under scholarship for the Southeastern Conference. For the FULL story check out BlackAmericaWeb.com by clicking HERE
