What Are Waves

In simple terms, 360 waves (or 180 waves, or 720 waves) are laid down curls. This pattern of hair is most commonly seen among Black men and dates back as far as the beginning of the civilization amongst Egyptians.

Waves can be achieved by constant brushing of short hair. Over time, this constant treatment of short hair, forms curls and ripples on the head, creating the illusion of waves; just as you would see in the ocean.

They come in various forms based on how the wave patterns are formed on the head. For examples, waves that form only on…

There is a truth about African fathers that goes unnoticed or unaddressed for years. An unspoken truth. You may be experiencing this unspoken truth-a tension between you and your father, but you are unsure about what you feel or why you feel that way.

It is weird because your father has always lived with you, provided for you, and may not have done anything to make you mad or sad. But you still feel, well, distant from him. …


Halloween is fast approaching! Now look inside your closet (if it’s still there) for last year’s Halloween costume. Is it the same old spiderman, superman, schoolgirl, vampire, Dracula costume? If it is, I can totally relate.

As an African American, Halloween was always the same! Every year my parents would buy me the same standard superman or batman superhero costume just to fit in with the other kids. But as I grew up, and was more aware of myself in terms of black culture, and excellence, I started to wonder…where are all the black character costume ideas for Halloween?

As an African American, growing up in a predominately white neighborhood, finding and meeting black people to interact with has been my biggest challenge. Back in the days, there was no Instagram or snapchat, or Facebook to get instant access to people all around the world. You actually had to do the work of going out to find people to talk to. Wow how things have changed!

Luckily, with technology nowadays, finding black people is generally a swipe, click, tap or DM away. Meeting them though? Well that’s another story.

Warner Bros just released the trailer for “Judas and the Black Messiah” movie yesterday and it is nothing short of exciting! The movie is a biopic about the assassination of Black Panther Party leader, Fred Hampton.

It was directed by Shaka King and stars Oscar-nominated actor Daniel Kaluuya as Hampton, chairman of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panther Party, and Lakeith Stanfield as William O’Neal; an FBI informant whose betrayal leads to Hampton’s death. Based on the roles you may now understand why the title is so clever.


In this fast paced stressful world, sleep has been one of my biggest issue. See, it is not that I can’t sleep. It is that I can’t sleep for more than 3 or 4 hours because I just can’t stop my brain from sleeping as well!

Overthinking has been a big issue for me and it has been the greatest contributor to my sleep deprivation.

Thankfully, I finally discovered a natural, non medicinal method to sleep soundly all night, every night. …
