Baltimore's long list of police brutality settlement suits
Years of abuses are every bit as egregious as what the Department of Justice documented in Ferguson, Missouri, and as deserving of a national response.

Ordinary woman interested in the extraordinary
Introduction
I ponder events and circumstances through a pop culture, Afro-bohemian lens; create and produce higher education, culture, society, race, arts and entertainment content for social media.

Began writing at the University of Maryland using a video display terminal; interviewed people and praised them highly. Did the same as a freelance writer in Arkansas for an advertising section of the state paper (Arkansas Democrat-Gazette).

Today, I call it like I see it.

Bragging rights
Finished master's degree just two weeks before 40th birthday; raising active kid with a serious bout of autism, in Arkansas
