Kelundra Recommends 10.3.2020: Hispanic Heritage Month Edition Pt. 2

Last week, I published the first of a two-part series celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month. The recommendations continue this week with a list of great sitcoms, an awesome cocktail recipe and my favorite Spotify playlist. This is the perfect way to escape that debate debacle. Get into it! TO WATCH: I couldn't pick just one this week, so I decided to list…

It's Hispanic Heritage Month and this week's recommendations are rooted in the Latin community. This is especially important to me, because just last week, a nurse/whistleblower named Dawn Wooten reported that brown asylum seekers in ICE detention centers were receiving illegal hysterectomies. This news came a couple of months after another whistleblower reported that children in immigration detention were being…

It's been almost a month since I published a recommendation list. When I first set out to do these, I told myself that at the point it felt like another item on the to-do list, and not just fun, I'd pause. Now, I'm back to it, and I'm excited to share all of the delightful experiences I've had over the…

There were 122 Black Women Running for Congress. Here they are, organized by state.

I kept seeing all of these articles about how there's a record-number of Black women running for Congress, but none of them said who they are or what they stand for. Those articles also failed to mention the high number of Latinos running for office, but that's a different post. The reality is that America is changing and you can't…

Typically before each listing, I wax poetic about one thing or another. This week, I don't want to wax poetic about anything. I'm more interested in letting the words be the words. I have been giving thanks a lot lately for having the language to describe my experience of the world. What has become clear to me is that when…

Lately, I've been seeing a lot of posts on social media with the sentiment, "This is the ghetto and I hate it here." It's often referring to the current state of affairs with the COVID-19 pandemic, Black Lives Matter Movement, uncertainty about school starting, the upcoming election-- you get the point. There is a lot to be angsty about, but…
