America Killed the Same Man it Celebrates

I was talking to my Dad the other day. Just shooting the shit about the Trailer Park Bowl at Capitol Hill on Jan 6, when we got on the subject of the most shocking events that happened during his lifetime. He listed a couple of events, including the murders of Chaney, Goodman, and Schwerner in Neshoba County, Mississippi. In my head, I was like yeah, that makes sense. He was heavy in the Movement at that time, so to him, it was probably a bit of a wake up call…

Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey

Ok, so check it… I am NOT your chick-flick, Hallmark, Lifetime movie-lover. I also HATE Christmas movies (I make exceptions for The Preacher’s Wife with Whitney and This Christmas). And even though I do like a good musical every now and again, I wasn’t aware that Jingle Jangle would have singing and dancing, so I went into the movie with no expectations. I figured it couldn’t be too bad with a stellar cast that included Phylicia Rashad, Forest Whitaker, Anika Noni Rose, and Keegan-Michael Key. Thirty minutes in I was…

Vice President Kamala Harris Crossing the Intersection: #BlackGirlsinWhiteHouses

By Frenshea Love, BWNC Black women have never entered the world without crossing an intersection. Race, class, gender, sexuality- Black women have always had to navigate social barriers like a deadly highway. These social barriers zooming toward us all at once. And Vice President Kamala Harris crossed them all. So, this moment is bittersweet because Looking at Kamala reminds me of all the debris that cluttered that already dangerous highway.
