Jordan had his fifth grade banquet the last week of school. Maurice and I have noticed the new amount of interest he has in his appearance and it shined through while looking for his banquet outfit. He actually asked me to take him shopping! (a phrase normally only heard by his older sister) He critiqued everything and was happy when we found this outfit. He carefully placed it in his closet so It would not be wrinkled. The morning of the big day brought more questions; shoe choice, tucked in or out, belt or no belt. Whew! He finally walked out he door feeling confident that he looked his best. He came home later to tell me he had a great day. I asked him if he had received any compliments, he gives me this big Jordan grin and says,” Oh, Yeah.”
The History of Us

I wrote a story prompted by my writing group. It's about church, community and racism. Since I published it on my blog I have had so many people reach out with the same shared experience. It's been comforting. Then I found out there is a whole movement of people sharing their stories of leaving church spaces that refuse to respond to racism and injustice. Thank you @thewitnessbcc.

Too close? Just making sure ya'll see these curls. Had my favorite curly girl expert @torrensalicia cut the back of my hair (looser curl pattern) even with the tightly coiled girls at the top. Love the shape that was created. Ima release the desire of length for a fuller style. #curlygirlmethod #natural #innersence
