It was a year ago today that I crossed the graduation stage for the final time. My heart was full of excitement, my eyes - full of eager hope for the future. Little did I know that the road ahead would introduce me to the lowest point of my natural born life. If you would have told me what was to come, I might have even laughed at the thought of such lowliness and desperation.
To sum it up:
Damaged friendships & family relationships.
First off, MAJOR shout out to Beverly Bond for creating a place for Black women to be celebrated and heard in mainstream media! It is MUCH needed!

This was the first year of the annual concert and it started off with a historic bang as the performance lineup included MC Lyte, Jean Grae, Ana Tiloux, Be’la Dona, Rapsody, Miri Ben-Ari, the incomparable Ms. Lauryn Hill, and of course DJ Beverly Bond herself!
