Living in A Different World

In one of my frequent phone conversations with my good friend Kofi, I heard a familiar sound in the background. “I know which episode of A Different World that is!” I remarked. I was wrong and Kofi reveled in it with a rib at my expense. “You know what, you’re right. It is the telethon […]

HBCU’s, Homecoming, and Nostalgia

​ The smartest decision I ever made was attending Morehouse College.  I haven’t been able to make the trip to Atlanta for my alma mater’s homecoming since Obama’s first term in office.

The Morning After

There’s a lot to write about this week. Still have another flight, going from visiting Atlanta to being a Hurricane Sandy refugee, and it being a year since the final chapter of my relationship with my fiance closed. With that said I will start with homecoming. It’s 7:28 AM, and I’m on my cousin’s porch […]
