Most of us have heard the adage from scripture, "for everything there is a season." This week, I've been thinking a lot about how we respond when our lives call is to something higher. Three years ago, I was driving home from work and I started hearing dialogue for a play in my mind. I ignored it, because I am…

Fall is my favorite season. Fall is the season for tailgating, Thanksgiving and my birthday. Who can ask for anything more? As we enter the thick of autumn, and COVID-19 cases are on the rise, many of us are nesting and looking for ways to stay occupied around the house.

122 Black Women Ran for Congress. Here are the Election Results.

Earlier this year, news outlets across the country reported that a record-number of Black women were running for Congress.

The things only kindness solves

It feels as if we have been living through the 2020 Presidential Election since 2016. This never-ending campaign of posturing toward self-righteousness from both sides of the aisle has been in a word: exhausting.

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…
