Black Environments

through the lens of an african-american woman


Environments: The surroundings or conditions in which a person lives and/or operates.

Black Environments: Surroundings and conditions where black folk live, work, and play.

This site was born to allow and encourage me to think through and out loud about the love and hate as well as the laughter and tears that Black Folk endure on a daily basis in all kinds of environments.  I question our world as it relates to media and image, entertainment, education, politics, housing, and status and analyze how those relations impact our reactions to the world and inspire us to be radically creative in our response to oppression, discrimination, marginalization, and exclusion.

My views may be considered bias or at times I’ll attempt to play the “devil’s advocate,” however, my views are my own and I don’t ask that you agree, but be respectful.
