My First Book 'When A Purple Rose Blooms' is Available NOW

I am beyond excited to announce that my FIRST book When a Purple Rose Blooms is available!! You can order copies directly from my publisher Nomadic Press. Order here
The book is a collection of essays and poetry about my experiences with black womanhood. There's lots of humor, pain, and love on every page. This book wrote itself. I had no intention of releasing a book of poetry and essays, but when I saw how much I've written over the last 20 years I thought, "why not?" and went for it. 
The book launch is tonight, 7pm at the Oakland Peace Center. I will be launching my book along with 6 other new writers to Nomadic Press. I'm in great, literary company. 
Thank you to every person who has read this blog over the years, attended my readings, listened to my radio stories or read my articles. Thank you for your support. I hope you enjoy the book! 

White Man Shares How To Use A Relaxer on White Hair

I've been away and now I'm back. This video is hilarious! A white man using a relaxer. I've seen it all. I remember when I was in college and one of my white suite mates wanted to curl her hair. She used my curling iron without my permission. Keep in mind, my hair texture requires more heat than white hair texture. I overheard my suite mate telling the other girls she burned off pieces of her with my curling iron. LOL! I don't think she used my curling iron again. Hopefully she learned to ask before borrowing too. Watch the video below and do not try what you see at home. Trust me, do not. There are black people who shouldn't be trying this at home either.

  1. He must've went to school with black folks. I don't know if i'm more surprised that he uses relaxer or that the box really says all that stuff about white hair LOL!

  4. Satire. Funny. Box says no such thing. Mainly poking fun of himself and a wisecrack answer to the often asked question: how do you get your hair like that??? Creative retort.
