It saddens me to see my people putting so much money into buying Jordans, hair products, "fresh clothes" etc. We have black businesses that sell many items we buy…

Ever since America was forced to suffer through three seasons of Flavor of Love and watching Ty Ruff from the Real World: DC showed his colors, it seems like “unscripted” television has had it out for Black folks. The only “real” depictions we get of ourselves are loud, foul mouthed, feisty,…Continue

After 2012 proving itself to be the year of ratchet reality TV, 2013 kicked off strong with a new reality show on TLC documenting the lives of four pastors’ wives in Atlanta. When the show was initially announced it was met with much criticism. After all, we’ve seen how cameras following people around documenting their “everyday lives” (or what the producers…Continue

I do not routinely watch Basketball Wives on VH1, because I do not care to watch Black women represent themselves in such a negative light. Unfortunately, I caught a glimpse of the show while channel surfing and was appalled at how Tami Roman behaved on national television. Tami taking Kesha Nichols bag and cell phone hoping to…Continue

I have learned a great deal about myself and about people since working on this fundraiser for the Blackbird Fly initiative. I was wondering where are the fathers who have daughters it would seem that they would be the one of the biggest supporters of this event. An organization working to improve the access to programs and resources for young ladies regardless of financial or social standing, religion, race or creed. ANY…Continue

I'm sitting at home working on a fundraiser for a client when I get an email from another client telling me about a film festival in Durham. Eh? What film festival? Rob Underhill invited her and she called me. Hey, I'm down, I need to get out of the house anyway. I finish up my lil' to do list and get ready…Continue

One of the hardest jobs in the world is to be a black woman. We do not get paid our worth and are generally treated like shit.
