“A powerful learning moment” — Black People are we still Gucci down to the socks?

Before you dive into this article, please allow me to preface my intent. I only wish to impress upon you the importance of considering the power of your dollar and honoring that power by being clear of your dollar’s worth when consuming!

Alexa Play Tuesdays — The Heard You SIS edition:

For this week’s “Alexa Play Tuesdays —” I wanted to share some of the tunes that have pushed me through an extremely trying year.
