What is "Walk A Day In My Culture" about?

Walk A Day In My Culture,” is a newsletter that I write monthly, including my perspective as a black woman first and then as a clinician second. By doing this, I am provide people who are not African-American with a different way of looking at the issues my community faces. For those who are African-American, they are provided with validation regarding the things they are experiencing, giving them a sense that they are not alone. But, regardless of a person’s race, my newsletter is bound to be helpful. It includes some practical things that are useful and supportive in the day to day interactions others have with clients, colleagues, or just people in general. I’m looking forward to you signing up under the "newsletter sign up" tab and beginning to let your cultural antennas be raised.

June 2019 - How To Remain Culturally Aware

This month I talk about how to remain culturally aware. It's one thing to learn culturally aware and sensitive techniques, but its another to continue to do those things. Remaining culturally aware takes just as much work as learning how to be culturally aware. If you strive to for cultural excellence, take a read at my newsletter.

April 2019 - RIP Nipsey Hussle

In this newsletter, I sadly write about a LA rapper who was tragically killed. I talk about the influence he had on the Black community and the great things he did to uplift our people. Feel free to read this newsletter to become more culturally aware from a musical perspective. I always encourage people to not turn their noses up at rap music, because many times rappers have an important message in their lyrics, particularly messages about Black issues.

January 2019 - Systemic Oppression (Part Two) The Welfare System

This newsletter is part 2 of my 4 part Systemic Oppression series. I am continuing to talk about the systems that have an affect on the Black community. In this issue, I discuss the welfare system and how I believe it is designed to be portrayed as helpful, but is actually oppressive. I break this system down so that you can understand my reasons for feeling that the welfare system ultimately oppresses the Black community as opposed to lifting us up.
