Libraries will always be the best places to get creative inspiration. I believe we should stay inspired, and continue to read as much as possible. There are wonderful hidden gems in a book, and it will be a shame to let all that wisdom go to waste.

Khalil Gibran is one of my favorite writers. I have had the heartbreak of losing a book of his greatest works, some years ago, when my apartment flooded. I can still remember the story The Prophet. I love classics, I wanted to shout out Khalil Gibran on this writer’s corner.

A conversation about race from a Native American perspective. I believe that there are gems in this documentary, it is featured on YouTube. Please feel free to expand your mind and check it out.

Head wraps have been in style for years, but with the natural hair movement has created such momentum that that the accessibility has increased.

There is this conversations in Hip-Hop about what it is morphing into. Those that have learned to become inspired by both the beats but the artistry of the rhyme, not to mention the relevance, can see it fading. Before Hip-Hop became a commercial and a aspiring designers wet dream, we actually saw street style in it’s organic and creative form. It is so heartbreaking to see how Hip-Hop has been not only bought and sold, but also corrupted. It’s hard to listen, but I know that there is that MC, that has not given up, that stays invested to molding the craft, in a now invisible world of righteousness..
