Life Can Be Illuminating

Exactly what color is Marsala?  Well, it’s what I call the new burgundy, but then again, what do I know? Nevertheless, […]

  I know that my title sounds a bit obnoxious to some of you reading this, but what I am saying and what I am feeling is the absolute truth.  The older I become, the more my yearning to celebrate my blackness grows.  I have reached a place in my life where I am ready […]
