Black Beauty: Our Women, Sistahs, & Mothers


Times are ‘a changing, but the struggle continues. Frankly, I had predetermined this piece to lament the plight of Black women, today. As a reporter several years ago, I did a story about a sistah who worked in corporate America, who was forced to file a lawsuit against her employer because it ostensibly deemed her flowing braids as unprofessional coiffeur. Her superiors were giving her the “blues,” as they say.

But today we have Michelle Obama as the first lady—that’s light years ahead of where we were just last year…and Omarosa certainly isn’t short stopping when it comes to representing the sistah’s with verve.

It was probably the story I came across recently that indicates the Nefertiti bust, the so-called beautiful queen of Ancient Egypt, is apparently a German fraud, that induced this writing.

Everything we were taught about Ancient Egypt seems to have been contrived. That’s scary. And if you read my novel, “The Awakening of Khufu,” you’ll find it even reaches into our religious institutions.

Well, I’m posting out today. It’s gett’n hot in here… .
