It's been a heavy week, in the best week, with writing on several topics finding light in the Afrobloggers Community. It has honestly been a great prompt and wonderful information has made its way in circulation. Continuing yesterday's thoughts on learning and reading disabilities, I thought I would draw attention to language. Lebogang's post lays … Continue reading Advocacy: Lost in translation
Pick up your pen and paper, its time to relearn our ABCs and 123s. In fact, use a pencil because you might need to erase more often than not. Because new information is always being unearthed. I mean you probably lived most of your life thinking watermelons are red or pinkish, only to find that … Continue reading Advocacy: The space to unlearn and relearn
This is Uganda's election week (and also my first serious blog post of the year - we'll ignore the Happy New year post, though I do hope your year has started off in good fashion).

I decided, around June, that the only way I was going to make sense of this year, … Continue reading The Blogging year – 2020 in review.

Here and ready for the next bit of this Black and Proud Series. If you missed the first, you might want to start here but if not then read on anyway. I had a very brief discussion with my father yesterday as we listened to a recounting of how the Aboriginals of Australia were massacred … Continue reading Black and Proud – A HISTORY!
In her speech during the Essence Black Women in Hollywood, after her first Oscar win, Lupita Nyong'o addressed the issue of skin colour so eloquently.
