Losing the Illusion: The Reality of Racism Today

Losing the Illusion: The Reality of Racism Today

Jun 17, 2017

Many of us are angry right now. I am enraged by one more example, another reminder, that Black lives don’t matter in this country. After hearing the verdict today I am numb. I cannot wrap my mind around a society that clears a cop from all criminal charges after shooting and killing a man, Philandro Castille, in front of a 4 year old child and his...

All That She Was and Will Be

Sep 5, 2015

I lost my Aunt Jimmie Lee this past week; She died on September 2nd. After an unexpected phone and several strokes later, I found myself on a plane to Alabama to see her and to support my family. Needless to say, it was an amazing trip full of revelations and reunions. It had been 25 years since I had touched the land of Alabama. 24 hours after returning home,...

Jan 28, 2015

I was initiated into my third degree in 2008. I don’t know if I was more happy to get the initiation or to be able to finally stop going through the trials that a degree systems brings to your front door; or so I thought. Either way, it was a turning point in my life, it was the result of a lot of hard work and one of the first times I chose to study something...

A Commitment to Realignment and Resignation

A Commitment to Realignment and Resignation

Dec 11, 2014

I feel I owe a clear statement to the community about my resignation from the Covenant of the Goddess organization. After 8 years of membership, I have come to a place where I am compelled to align myself with organizations that have a clear message of supporting justice and equity for marginalized people. And while I am a supporter of equity in all areas,...
