I recently wrote about how we are all literally walking around in our own bubble, in a piece appropriately titled, The BUBBLE. We have been able to curate images and rhetoric that aligns precisely with our own way of viewing the world. More and more we are moving in the direction of not being open […]Read more "Obdurate"

I really thought the Supreme Court would not overturn Roe vs. Wade. I was confident the controversial leaked draft would have the court revisit such a horrendous decision. I was wrong. This is really happening. The country will now have states determining their own rules as it relates to access to abortions. No one can’t […]Read more "Huh?!"

As I surf the Internet, specifically my social media platforms, I see Instagram comedians creating sixty second sketches about the up and coming day. I almost typed “holiday” but I recently learned Valentine’s Day is not an official holiday. Schools, banks and post offices across the country remain open. Never-mind the fact that we start […]Read more "Valentine’s Day: Are We Still HYPED?"
Some may not readily associate the dancehall scene with breast cancer awareness, canned food drives, homelessness awareness fundraisers and free holiday parties for kids. But that’s just what I discovered after sitting down with Buddah from Sibling Music. During our one on one interview I learned a lot about the creator of one of the most […]Read more "Energy Wednesday: An Interview in the Dancehall"
The recent #tenyearchallenge had a lot of people posting old and new pictures-it was fun to see how some of us have stayed the same and others have changed dramatically. I, being an active participant in social media trends, quickly looked up some pictures to use. I decided early on I wanted to include my […]Read more "“You’re Pretty, For A Dark Skinned Girl”"
