I am a basketball junkie, old school music lover, and a fan of all things Toni Morrison. Okay, that was the fun and easy way to describe me. Here's the thorough and detailed bio:
I am a writer. At an early age I knew that I wanted write. Toni Morrison and Maya Angelou were key influences in my decision to write. It was through reading their works that I saw a reflection of myself and knew that this is what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. In fact, now I write so much that it has been said (and I agree with this) that I am a better writer than speaker.
Currently pursuing a journalism degree while minoring in African-American studies at the University of Kansas, I write about a wide range of topics from the perspective of a 20-year-old college student. Those topics include sex, feminism, pop culture, religion, social issues and sports. My work has been featured in Fansided's Hoops Habit, Spark Sports, The University Daily Kansan, Huffington Post Black Voices, The Nation, The Major and the Detroit Free Press. This blog was created to be my outlet, which tends to be candidly characterized as pro-black female (hence, the tagline). With this blog, I hope to give insight to the issues and injustices directed toward marginalized communities while also giving my two cent on events happening in the world.
