Looking forward to sitting on this panel tomorrow, Thursday April 27, discussing intersectionality with several minds I admire like Shaun King, Hill Harper, and Ilyasah Shabazz. Plus I’m excited about seeing the great Harry Belafonte honored at this year’s National Action Network Convention. #NAN2017


#Memories Circle of Sisters 2016

I had so much fun with my WBLS, Hot 97, and WLIB family taking over NYC’s Jacob Javitz Center for Circle of Sisters 2016. The yearly black women’s empowerment event attracts thousands for two, jam-packed, days of panels, performances, celebrity sightings, interviews, and an indoor flea market vibe packed with countless booths selling products appealing to today’s black woman. Not only did I get to sell my novel “The Man Curse” in the special “Meet Your DJ” Booth (Heyyy! :=). I also shared the stage with Common in an intimate one-on-one about his album “Black America Again” with a surprise visit on-stage by The Rev. Al Sharpton. CHECK THE INTERVIEW HERE: Common talks the 13th Documentary and has message for Black Youth.

Besides that? Tons of pics taken with my co-workers, fans, a few celebrities, and just pure fun. Check the pics below!


Amazing time on stage building with Common and Rev. Al Sharpton.
