As many in this nation celebrated the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. last week, I wanted to share his quotes that are not the typical “content of their character” quotes. Without fail, despite the vast amount of work produced by Dr. King, many White […]
I started my blog, Write Some Shit, with Black Women It’s Okay To Take Off Your Cape this year. In just a few days, thousands of women read the blog and reached out to me, letting me know I had captured their feelings. Through their messages, I realized […]

Thank you, Senator Cory Booker, for reminding not just Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson but many Black women that we are seen, we are heard, and we are worthy.
We stand with you, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson. We have all been there before. We understand sitting through mediocrity is never pleasant. Being a spacemaker is often not easy.
