This is my first post @ BlogHer in about two years. I'm still writing at Marian's Blog and sometimes elsewhere. I'm also struggling through working on my first book. Today I'm writing about experiencing negation and censorship, as if the past 300 years (predating existence of the USA) weren't already enough for any tri-racial Black American woman (or man). ...more

Tight Times at Home? It Could Be So Much Worse.

In this time of tightening budgets, many people are looking to save money, not spend it– and only on the things that are truly necessary. It should be no surprise that charities and other non-profit organizations are feeling the financial crisis as well. Ironically, these are the times when they need support the most.
