Something dope happened this year.
I stepped into myself. I know, I know, I say that every year. And I hope I say it every year after.

This time though, I took a step toward #artistmomlife in the most concrete way to date, I applied for a pretty major grant (for me anyway) for a project I was working on with Creative Action Unlimited

Sis got the grant.

I am one out of 85 projects awarded $30,000 to do something dope. A very very special thank you to The MAP Fund, supported by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, Howard Gilman Foundation, and Mellon Foundation for the opportunity. More info at mapfund.org

Just one more affirmation to continue to unapologetically take up space and be loud about it.

The Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, what now? ANSWER: The next generation of Hell Hath No Fury Queens UNITE!!
