Did I catch the long tail of anti-black woman gendered racism from non-blacks reaching its peak? Or is there an increased awareness due to the extended social justice efforts of BWE that the lifestyle changes have spurred an even bigger cultural shift than we’ve realized?
Between recent coverage of Majora Carter, [...]
Access matters! We’re so lucky here in the United States and other Western countries to be able to use computers in public spaces like the local library and have so many open wifi hotspots.
While I don’t think it wise to dismiss the ongoing talk of a digital divide, we shouldn’t [...]
Be Like “Cindy”!!
Early readers of Acts of Faith In Love & Life will remember how well my post on re-examining the Cinderella mythos, Cinderella: Guerilla Training Manual resonated with so many of you. I’ve debated how to expound on its theme of empowerment and due to the requirements [...]

Some of my favorite examples of courage are of women adopting the affirmative for who they really are and acting on it. I was so glad to have watched the ABC talk show, The Revolution. While there was some controversy about the network replacing venerated soap operas with scripted tv shows, I [...]
Roadblock to the nth degree
You’re not lazy. You’re more than willing to apply yourself. You welcome sound advice. You’re focused. You’ve weighed pros and cons. You’ve over-analyzed your entire life’s choices. You’ve tried to be Zen. Maybe the operative word is tried. Which is not-too-subtle code for tried and [...]
Yup, that’s a provocative title for sure. It’s a spin on the book Girls’ Guide To Hunting & Fishing. I was thus inspired by a little blogger troll who took issue with my Mrs. & Mr. Zuckerberg post from last week. Which was about how an average woman can position herself [...]
