Those Difficult Conversations

A few nights ago it was time for bedtime snuggles and prayers with my six year old son. He started crying and asked “Why do we have to be black mummy”. I felt heart broken.

You are what you Eat (Part 2) – I AM NOT A Catfish, I’m a Writer

In part one of this story, I talked about history and how rules, cultures, and instructions are warped and bent over time and over multiple generations.

For Example; 2 days after I took offenceContinue reading “You are what you Eat (Part 2) – I AM NOT A Catfish, I’m a Writer”
