We are all guilty of it. We all use it and we all say that it’s normal. It has poured over into our regular vocabulary. Words have been added to the dictionary to reflect the times and new words are being created every day. Slang can be creative and it can be harsh, but it’s all fun right? Some words with backgrounds that hold a negative connotation for some cultures have now become the “it” words, the words [...]

In 2001 the United States declared war on Afghanistan making this the war of all wars during my generation. Thanks to the government and the media, the American people were forced to believe that if this didn’t take place our country would be in serious danger by Al-Qaeda and the Afghanistan and Iraqi Government. They called this the War on Terrorism. The Bush Administration’s “goal” was to go into these countries, remove the leaders, remove the weapons of [...]

Ladies, it’s that time again – Valentine’s Day!!! Do you know what that means? It’s time for chocolate, dates, flowers, cards & LOVE.

Either way, YOU CAN STILL BE [...]

Art is a tool that has infinite impact, through image, film, song, and many other things – global change may occur, community change may occur or personal change may occur. Five + one + Two = Eight.

I didn’t attend a high school that was ill-equipped or that lacked resources. Actually, I went to one of the better private high schools in Baltimore City. However, I still experienced firsthand what is routinely being reported as a growing epidemic. Out of an incoming freshman class of 330 students, only 40 of us were African-American. This bothered me a little, but what was more bothersome is that by graduation 4 years later only about 20 of us completed [...]
It’s a popular belief that slavery, migration and destruction has caused a scattering of the things that our ancestors once held so precious. Because of these very things, many Black Americans have no idea of their history and culture. That’s why people like Shantrelle P. Lewis are relevant and heaven sent. Raised in New Orleans, Ms. Lewis has demonstrated a commitment to researching, documenting and preserving the African Diaspora’s culture. A graduate of Howard University, Shantrelle chose to take her [...]
