For this week's guest-tweeting session, The Root contributor, mental-health advocate and self-proclaimed Scandal obsessee Bassey Ikpi will tweet on our behalf. Join us for lively, hilarious and witty commentary. She promises to keep you entertained.

Also, Ikpi's nonprofit organization, the Siwe Project, is launching an event called International No Shame Day on July 2. It's a day to help reduce stigma surrounding mental health and illness in the global black community. She'll also host a panel on black mental health at Art Sanctuary's Celebration of Black Writing event. Register for the events here.
