Greetings! I write to you in high spirits while still mourning. Ma'Khia Bryant's murder is heavy on our hearts and I just want to tell you something. I am so sorry that Black Girlhood© forced us to grow up faster than our non-Black peers. To be 10 and seen as 18 scarred us in ways … Continue reading To My Former Co-Workers of Black Girls™
Depravity: A Personal Essay
de·prav·i·tymoral corruption; wickedness To watch your country fall apart for the simple, morally decent of wearing and mask and scream and yell about their rights like a toddler is a sort of Hell I didn't think I could imagine.
