TWO THINGS - My Joy In The Morning

First, I lost my beloved mother, Beryl Doreen Moore Poindexter, on Monday, February 16. She literally died in my arms at the age of 91. My heart and soul are numb, and my world is in a billion pieces. I wish I could draw my energy and creativity from her, as I often do, but right now - I just feel completely alone and fearful of the future. But, as we all know, this too shall pass, and I will find a way to my joy in the morning.

Second (such a total opposite post) ... Five of my…

November 2014 I took my 17 year old niece to the Studio Museum in Harlem and we enjoyed many exhibits. But, one exhibit struck a cord and that was The Jet Beauty of The Month, which was a room full of Jet Beauties from the past and present.



My niece said "they are not many darker skinned black women as…

Ruby Dee and Maya Angelou: Angels of Dignity

Like most us I was saddened to hear of the deaths of two remarkable, legendary, transcendent American women. The loss of one is extremely painful; the loss of two in such quick succession is almost unthinkable. The profound poetry of Dr. Maya Angelou inspired generations of young people to question the norms of an unjust society and challenge us to force change for the good of all, which is exactly what she worked for until the day she was called home. Ruby Dee was a tireless advocate for…

The Black Image In Popular Culture



We seem surprised by the racist, demeaning and disrespectful depiction of African Americans in popular culture and conversation. But why should we be respected if we do not respect ourselves?

Is it not true that we casually demean each other and our children everyday? African American comedians and hip hop artists seem to only refer to black women as bitches including their wives,…
