Habari Gani? Imani! Happy New Year! My faith means a lot to me, because there have been times when it was all that I had to hold on to. We may not all believe the same thing, but as a people, we are deeply rooted in our belief in something bigger than us. I believeContinue reading “Kwanzaa 2021-22: Day 7”

Kwanzaa 2019 – Day 7
Habari Gani? Imani! Well, that feeling in my spirit that something was going to happen at Watch Night service last night was right on point. I’m not trying to be messy; I’m putting this out there on behalf of other women in ministry. Ours is a female-led ministry of Dance and Mime, as the majorityContinue reading “Kwanzaa 2019 – Day 7”

I Don’t Trust White Christians Anymore!
