There’s a lot going on in our world right now, much that I haven’t really come here to discuss because it’s all the same stuff I have been discussing for years. Hatred wears a white face cloaked in blue clothes with red crosshairs in… Read more →

Black Culture is Still Important

When I think about the concept of black culture and what it meant for me growing up I am reminded of the lessons of strength from our history as a people.
