Black is Breezie

View Comments

Daughter, Sister, Focused Feminista, Princess of Politics, Hip - Hop Head, Lady Laureate, concerned with the past, present and future of African Americans and in Love with Life, a Chicago Native by way of Mississippi, a college graduate, middle class, an aspiring law student, a mother of an adopted stray cat named Mink Elle, a south sider, a renter, a CTA commuter.

In 2008, I graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, with a B.A. in Political Science, a minor in African American Studies with a concentration in Gender Women's Studies. I have a passion to help women of color in areas of health care and education, which is why you can find me doing work for The Red Pump Project, an HIV/AIDS awareness organization.

In April of 2009, when I first became introduced to the Twitterverse, I also began having a desire to create a blog. Albeit I was tentatively content with reaching people in 140 characters or less I also had to accept that I have a story to tell. Six months later, my blog was born. Anyone who knows me, I mean REALLY knows me, knows and understands that my PASSION is African American past, present, and future. While, I don't consider myself a part of the black intellegencia, I do consider myself a student of all things good and bad with our culture. Be it the culture, the politics, or the way we interact with each other socially or romantically. It is my aim is to discuss these situations with concern or criticism, seriousness or satire, delight or disdain.

That being said, welcome to Black is Breezie!
