I write because it is imperative to point out the complexities of the immigrant and first-generation Black role, experience, and even more so, the deep introspective work that we must hold ourselves accountable to. "From their fight, we got to win. From their labor, we got to eat the fruit. And even more, Black Americans were dragged to this...

Setting up 2020 to be a different kind of year might begin with how you bring it in. Think about trading the typical club scene for a peaceful moment of intentional reflection and manifesting to truly create the beginning of a purposeful and clear New Year.

A: Um. Wow. Okay. This is pretty recent, but uh... Decided to open my relationship with my boyfriend, like on Valentine's Day, this year. Craziest thing I've ever done for love— for love of all.

A: I gave up my home.

A: I can think for a minute, right? You know what? This is kind of a weird answer, but I think it was finishing college. Because I real...

A: What do I know to be true? Um... Uh... What do I know to be true? Can I get like philosophical or something on this? Like, that we know nothing. 'Cause everything we know is like, based on truths that are said by like, people. So, we can say that "this" is true, and if everybody believes it, then it's true. And so, we can't really say anything i...

A: Grief. So, when my mother passed, I went through a very dark time. But by the graces of God, I was able to... Climb out of a very dangerous place and come out better than before. Period.
 

A: What have I survived? I have survived um... Poverty. I have survived racial discrimination. I have survived love-hurt. I have survived difficult situations....

(Late post -- Celebrating Nigerian Independence Day. All stories on Instagram)

A: My favorite thing about being Nigerian is being part of a culture that so many people love and want to know. So, they instantly gravitate towards me, my family... when we wear our traditional clothes, we cook our food... they instantly love it, so I love being Nigerian...

A: Awe man. Haha. That at the end of the day, you really only have yourself and you can really get through anything because heartbreak is one of the worst feelings on Earth. I think it taught me that more than anything. 

A: Ummmm. Heartbreak has taught me to always be honest with myself about what I need in relationships.

A: Yeah, I gotta think about...

A: (Lady) So one of my best friends growing up from the age of like 8 to 18... When she went to an Ivy League school... (I'm a little bit younger than her) so I went to go visit her at school and I didn't drink beer at the time so I asked one of her friends who was smoking pot if I could have some pot because I wasn't drinking beer and she was drin...

A: The best thing I love about my beard is that it's easy to grow.

A: What do I love? The freedom about it. I love the fact that I can just wake up, be able to put some water, some coconut oil... and just feel free about it. Like I don't know, it's a sense of... I don't know, I feel free. That's all I'm able to say.

A: What I love most about my beard...

A: I think I can speak about it on two flip sides. In my experience with jealousy, it’s a consuming negative emotion. Usually it has something to do with a feeling of inadequacy. Um, it’s something everyone experiences and we should be honest about that within ourselves first. I think it’s usually an indicator for you to pay attention to something...

Atlanta was so good to me, I cannot wait to go back. This has been my favorite question thus far and I probably ran into some of my favorite people here too.

A: Their smiles.Their smiles and their eyes. Um, eyes speak a lot, they say a lot about the person. So that's something I definitely find very beautiful when I meet someone new, a stranger. It...

April 14, 2017

A: (Painter) Well, currently... What has pushed me towards two of my dreams is just um... wanting to just fulfill what I want to do. Maybe it's a little bit of selfishness I guess you can say, but it's always been what I wanted to do. So, it's always been 'what's necessary for that?'. So that drive is always there because my mother was a single par...

A: Commitment issues. Because ever since I was a child, I saw my parents split up and I saw how commitment issues didn't really work out as well. And ever since then, all my relationships have been going down because I don't trust people and I have every complex with commitment issues.

Q: Do you think you'll ever get over it or move through that?
