I'm honored Andrea Morehead could share some advice for other busy moms and her thoughts on early education.
As you may know, I see many patients each week as I practice dermatology. After asking questions about the problem and examining the patient, I make a...
I'm 33 and I've made just about every financial mistake you can think of: over-drafting, bad checks (accidentally), bank account closed (by the bank), reports to Chexsystems, low credit score, having a ton of credit cards (20, at my peak), pre-foreclosure, high-credit card debt....
School brochure pictures notwithstanding, by and large, students hang around kids of their same race. But it turns out that the type of school they go to might encourage or subvert this tendency.
I remember growing up as a little girl in Zimbabwe, Southern Africa, and having no access to books or magazines that portrayed and highlighted African beauty. Sadly, 46 years later, this is still the case.
I believe the future for Africa is in fashion and design and it is one of the places to start. It will set the stage for change and transformation in African cities. And when it comes to fashion, all signs are pointing to Africa as the next "big thing."
It's true -- I'm a black man with a watermelon for a birthmark. In many countries and cultures around the world, this would be unremarkable. But in the United States, where watermelon is associated with historic African-American stereotypes, my birthmark takes on a more complex symbolism.
My grandmother challenged me to be someone great and to serve others. We must fight to have the life we want, just like the women who came before us had to fight. Here are my strategies for success.
Much like Dexter Morgan, the lead character of Showtime's serial killer series, I go about life with a "dark passenger" in tow. Except what's haunting...
We all know that the rush to get ready and out the door in the morning can be a big stress, not only on us, but also our hair.
What does it mean to be black in America? I faced this question early in life as a child of African immigrants. First days of school were the worst days. As teachers and peers faced difficulty pronouncing my long West African name, I struggled to understand who I was.
The exhibit showcases fashions from the Ebony Fashion Fair that began in 1958 and traveled America until 2009. The show was an elegant fashion show with black models.
It felt like I was struck by a ton of bricks when I viewed the Oxygen Media pilot of their offensively titled All My Babies' Mamas. Now erased from the Internet, the 'show' depicted the most egregious stereotypes of black families.
My husband and I are opposites. He has dark skin; I have light. He has black hair; mine is blonde. He loves sports; I am an art nerd. He reads science fiction novels; I like Us Magazine (particularly when they show Ryan Gosling without his shirt on). The list goes on and on...
Beyonce can claim it all: fame, fortune, a doting husband, beautiful daughter and the world at her fingertips. The question is why she would compromise it all by releasing a song like "Bow Down"?
How disappointing that one of the most powerful women in the world is only willing to touch half of the story -- half of the truth. Nowhere does Sandberg take into consideration the unique challenges that women of color face in corporate America today.
Matthew Shepard. Charles Howard. Teena Brandon. In the LGBT community these are names and tragic stories that made national headlines. But how many of us are familiar with Sakia Gunn? Tiffany Berry? Micheal J. Sandy? Roberto Pancho Duncanson?
"The Black Guy Who Tips," "Where's My 40 Acres" and "The Insanity Check" are among a network of black podcasts that are gaining more and more popularity on a variety of platforms with raucous humor and commentary on music, sports, pop culture and current events.
When it comes to dating, we implicitly acknowledge that it takes time before we can both simply assume that we're hanging out this weekend without asking each other. With female friendship, we lack language to articulate those stages.
