It’s been a long time, I shouldn’t have left you! *Timberland voice*
MelaninMic.com family, how are you?! I hope all is well with you and yours. How am I you ask? Oh I’m swell…. sike. If it’s not the racists, or the Rona, it’s this hot
ass weather and high electric bill. But I have my health and my means so I’ll keep my complaints to a minimum.
I had to take a moment to regroup due to my creative growth expanded quicker than I thought. Don’t get me wrong, it is an absolute blessing but I dropped the ball in a few places and I had to teach myself a few things. Experience is the best teacher.
So with that being said, I didn’t go ghost! The work and content continued, just not here (again, my bad y’all!). Let me catch y’all up.
Ya girl has been an active when it comes to participation and advocacy against police brutality and systematic oppression. From marching for George Floyd to making phone calls and sending emails for Breonna Taylor and Elijah McClain. I’ve even began looking in how to better help my community and was able to volunteer a few places.
I also launched my very own podcast! Of course the episodes release on #TJTuesdays and you can get caught up on the first THREE including today’s release of R.N.S. ( where I provide a little transparency into my life experiences and hopefully plant a seed in all who hear it. (Listen here https://anchor.fm/melaninmic/episodes/R-N-S-Transparency-is-hard-but-necessary-eglp4l )
You can join me as your host where I spark conversations with different guests on topics relevant to TheCulture that may make you laugh or maybe even uncomfortable but hopefully they make you think. The MelaninMic Podcast is an extension of MelaninMic.com and a product of evolution? Maybe… I think that makes sense lol. If not, you get the picture! In addition to that, I conduct live interviews on my Instagram Live every once in a while so Insta is where you get all the goods!
I’m working on my balance y’all but don’t worry, I’m always going to be out here doing something to move all of this forward. The world is so messed up and we have work to do if we’re going to experience a better future. Because I would say
shit couldn’t get worse but 2020 has proven that to be a lie!
Y’all stay safe, wear your mask, wash your hands and don’t forget to love on somebody today!
