I Am the Black Child
I am special, ridicule cannot sway me
I am strong, obstacles cannot stop me
I hold my head high, proudly proclaiming my uniqueness
I hold my pace, continuing forward through adversity
I am proud of my heritage
I am confident that I can achieve my every goal.
I am becoming all that I can be
I am the Black Child, I am a Child of God

Why is Nita Upside Down? By Roxana Bouwer, Sarah Bouwer, Emma Hearne
Sometimes, we fear that others won’t accept us because of the things that make us unique – whether we look different to others, think differently, or have other interests. The reality is that everyone of us is different in some way, and that is our strength. This short picture book is a celebration of dark-skinned bodies of all kinds.
In Skin We Are In,
Breaking The Chain
Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration honoring
the end of slavery in the United States. On June 19, 1865, Union General Gordon
Granger led thousands of federal troops to Galveston, Texas to announce that
the Civil War had ended, and slaves had been freed. As we remember, celebrate, and continue to fight for equality, Let strive to break the chains of discrimination to form a more just society.
Why We Wear a Mask!
“Masks should be worn anytime you are in public or people are nearby. Masks act as a physical barrier to protect you and others from viral and bacterial particulates. Many people unknowingly infect others by going out and spreading germs by coughing or touching others,”
- As confirmed cases of COVID-19 continue to rise, the CDC is recommending that everyone wear a cloth mask when they go out in public.
- Experts say the homemade masks won’t protect anyone from getting sick, but they can help prevent the spread of the disease by those with the virus.
The Butler comes out tomorrow. Please go to the movie to see this awesome movie. Reviews appears to be very good. Lee Daniels and this star power cast is what we have been waiting for: talent, substance, and entertaining. Going to the movie on the first day is important. The media always spot light the top movies. Get with your friends and have a great TGIF night at the movies.

“Keep the soul in your heart and the health in your life”
Soul food is tasty, simple, hearty, and rooted in tradition. Many soul
food recipes - succulent fried chicken, sweet potato pie, rich macaroni and
cheese, sloppy barbecue ribs and meats, and ham hock collard greens with pork
fat -- have been passed down over the generations and include cooking
ingredients that we know today are not healthy for us to eat in large
From Watch Night to New Years Day: Family Traditions, Tales and Togetherness
New Years Day is a forward looking event.
During weeks building up to New Year’s Eve, we take time to assess what
our year was like. Did we accomplish
goals set in 2010. Did we lose that
weight, kick that guy to the curb, sign up for some classes to make that career
more or what did we do? By New Years Day
we are optimistic. We feel empowered to
have a better year spiritually, economically, socially and or relationship
