Divine Muva Diva: A family’s anguish

July 8, 2021

In the last 14 days, three of my friends have lost their children tragically. I watched in despair as their anguish played out in social media spaces, where they cried, spoke of losing a child way too soon, all while wondering how they were going to cope and move on. What I just described is…

Caping for Cosby

July 8, 2021

By Jeff Winbush In a better world than this, we wouldn’t have to speak of Bill Cosby until he was dead. Only then could there be a serious discussion on what his true legacy was, as well as how badly he poisoned it because of his depravity where he drugged women and took them against…

June 24, 2021

My recent mother-daughter trip to Tulum, Mexico was much more than a long weekend getaway, but when you’re a person that continually romanticizes and gives meaning to every aspect of your life, nothing is ever just “as is.”  A week prior to my departure, a quick weather check proved that rain was on the menu…

SUNrise: cj speaks… Happy Father’s Day — a poem

June 18, 2021

As the abstract essence of your existence has so many different meanings for so many different people in your life, YOU remain bold and brave.  As YOU could become blinded by so many choices, temptations or life’s reality in your daily walk, YOU exert your responsibilities.  As your children seek YOU for guidance and your…

A Millennial Voice: Give me life or give me business (or give me both)

June 11, 2021

By Danaé Reid The beginning of my sojourn as a small business owner was pretty seamless, and foolishly, I thought it would continue on that way. My creative business endeavour began during COVID as the result  of an “in the moment” decision that had positive long-term implications. However, over the past year, I’ve learned quite…
