I am a non-traditional college student. Okay, I know, what does that mean? I am an experienced adult. University has been a challenge so far, but I am in the last year of an English undergraduate degree. I plan on going to graduate school, but I will not reveal the program –I don’t want to jinx it. I will talk about it after I receive an admission letter ;).

That said, I write, I sing, I think, I take pictures, I fail, I succeed, I knit hats and scarves, I observe, and I live.

I used to be a member of  an actor’s studio in the early 1990s, and the actor that I was apprenticed to would tell all of his actors that when people asked him “What do you do?,” He would respond with “I live.” His response was so on point because we judge people by what they do. And in the end all that really matters is that you lived.

Indie Black represents an independent, feminine voice from an African American perspective.

Yes, everyone has a unique life experience, and I am not the voice for all African American women. I think the way that black women are portrayed in the media is one-dimensional, and distorted. My life is three-dimensional, and this is my contribution, my public relations campaign, if you will. So welcome to my world. Enjoy.
