RESPECT HBCUs (Period)

We’ve all seen or at least heard about the things that are taking place right now with regards to “45,” Besty Devos and higher education, and more specifically Historically Black Colleges and Universities. Like that fiasco that took place at the Bethune Cookman University commencement that had us all confused AF, like girl.

With that being said, situations like those and the one that I’m about to share, which took place at my job recently, is what inspired everything surrounding this post.

Tea+Talk Brunch with Souk Bo’hēmian and EatHereAtl

Hey y’all! I’m back with a new adventure post! So you guys know my whole purpose surrounding the adventures of Atlanta blog posts are to highlight events/things to do in Atlanta apart from the typical “party scene.”

With that being said, this past Sunday I had the absolute pleasure of attending the first Souk Bo’hēmian and EatHereAtl Tea+Talk Brunch curated by Morgan Ashley and Vanessa Coore. You probably know them on instagram as @oaklanta and @thebazaarbohemian.

Y’all! Let me tell you, anytime I can get together with a group of creatives and connect, I. Am. All. There! Honestly, I had no idea of what to expect but I left the Tea+Talk event very, very pleased and with a full spirit. These ladies and their team did an outstanding job! You could tell they put a lot of thought into our experience for the event. The decor was great and the location, perfect; right outside at the Just Add Honey Tea Company. I mean even the music set an ambiance as though you were out of town in some foreign country, when in fact we were right in the heart of Atlanta, right on Edgewood avenue.

A Lecture by Angela Y. Davis at Spelman College

Hey Y’all! Welcome to my very first “Adventures of Atlanta” post where I’m super excited to break the ice with my visit to Sisters Chapel on the campus of Spelman College right here in Atlanta, Georgia. I thought it’d be pretty cool to share on the birth date of myself and Ms. Davis. So, Happy Birthday to us!

As promised, I came up with a blog post about my visit to hear Ms. Davis at Spelman College last week. First let me start off by saying, being on Spelman’s campus and seeing all the beautiful black women come out to hear the amazing Angela Davis’ lecture, about the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King was soooo empowering. It was a feeling all by itself, separate from the reason I was on the campus. I loved every bit of it. It was super nostalgic and made me miss and wanna do college all over again. While I’m at it, shout out to everybody who’s a proud product of an HBCU.✊🏾 Continue reading “A Lecture by Angela Y. Davis at Spelman College”

How I bounce back after life throws me a hand of wild cards

Ok so let’s talk life! (Insert stressed emoji face. Whichever one you want lol.) When I tell you ever since the blog went live, the past few weeks have been emotionally draining, believe me, they have. From multiple random encounters with people from my past, to dealing with the election and the aftermath (we’ve survived worse), to being forced to deal with releasing toxic folk from my presence, all on top of losing a dear friend unsuspectingly. I’m telling you! Hoooney! Omg! It’s all had me like “ok what is uuuup??” Like can I just be blissful and great in these skreets please?! (yeah I said skreets) Continue reading “How I bounce back after life throws me a hand of wild cards”
