For Shaun

My cousin Shaun wanted this on a shirt. So I designed it. I’ve decided any profits earned will go to helping a homeless youth get some much needed self care in the form of natural hair care/grooming he is looking for.  A community member from Resist Oppression brought this young man to my attention and I am trying to find someone to provide the services he is looking for and the funds to make it happen.

Please help.  Buy here:

Use my invite link to launch your own campaign and we both earn $1 per shirt sold (up to $100!)*

Thank you!

PushBlack Takes You to School…

I believe I have shared about this before, but here goes, again. This time in a more official capacity.

Sign Up for PushBlack on Facebook today.  You will get history lessons sent directly to your messenger inbox regularly.  But not just any history lessons.  Take this entry on Franklin D. Roosevelt and the New Deal, Did you Know That FDR’s New Deal Was Racist?

PushBlack contextualizes the racist policies inherent in The New Deal. FDR and The New Deal are typically praised for pulling America out of the Great Depression, however, that was not true for black people.  Roosevelt’s New Deal actively hurt black people by allowing employers to pay blacks less and kept black people from homeownership.

These are the true legacy of FDR’s New Deal that black people are still fighting.  When we talk about dismantling white supremacy, this is what we are talking about.  Truth is power and power is liberation.  Know your truth and don’t be afraid to stand in it and for it, daily.



KILLING GEORGINA is creating poetry and prose to heal and achieve metaphysical liberation.

Trying something New

Putting this out in the universe.

I want a team of folx to help create a vision with.

I want an assistant to keep me on task and make sure things don’t fall through the cracks.

I want a professionally designed website that fully integrates M4RJRI, Resist Oppression, Killing Georgina and all social media platforms and groups seamlessly in a way that makes adding content and sharing information seamless.

I want to have more time to create and share my ideas and help to make them a reality.

I am an idea person. I am not great at getting in the weeds. The weeds feel like tall grasses that engulf and overwhelme me.

I need a lifeline. I need support.
