#tbt to the very beginning of Black History Month when I worked with the Dapline! team to bring their performance to Pittsburgh! ✨ After the initial performance @augustwilsonculturalcenter, we had an amazing conversation @bunkerprojects, hosted by the brilliant Tara Fay (@mstarafay), thoughtfully dissecting language around the words ‘performance’, ‘authorship’ and ‘ownership’. The next day, we had a lunchtime discussion about the history of ‘Radical Blackness’ that brought folks from @carnegiemellon, @pittlawschool and the city-at-large in one room together. Finally, we ended with an evening chat at the Center for Arts and society where we broke down the ‘Black Gesture’ by visiting the comedy of Richard Pryor and viewing the photography of Jamel Shabazz (@jamelshabazz). ✨ Grateful to have had another opportunity to learn with friends, build bridges and make connections. 🤗 Let’s keep collaborating! #blackhistorymonth #blackhistoryeveryday #dapline

#tbt to this cutie in front of the first house I ever bought when I was 19. It was the house that my grandparents raised my father in, but we lost it. I bought it back in 2006 and it’s been the seed that so much of my work has been planted on. 🙌🏿✨

#tbt to graduating from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law this year!
During my time at Pitt Law, as a grown ass 30+ woman, I was a very active member of the student body. I organized collaborative programs with my undergraduate alma mater @carnegiemellon, creating a bridge between the two universities. I brought artists to come speak to my cohort of young and practicing attorneys about their paths and intersections with the law (shout out ✨@the.jumpsuit.project✨). I worked with the Property, Trademark and Entertainment&Sports Law departments to develop my own specialized field of study. AND I gained a new chosen family when I joined the Black Law Student Association (@pittlawblsa) Executive Board 🖤. I’m still not a lawyer and this isn’t legal advice but here’s to working even harder and stacking more degrees in 2019! #threestacks #shouldibedoctormossnext #pittsburgh #pittlaw #universityofpittsburgh

Want to be a part of the 2019 @duragfest, an annual event celebrating the traditions and honoring the legacy of Juneteenth? Well, now is your chance! We’re collecting coin to make this year’s event top the last!

Last year’s @duragfest in Charlotte, NC yielded more than 3k of y’all, national attention on media outlets like @bossipofficial @espn and @blavity, and demonstrated the real need for our own celebrations of freedom.
We’re printing more of these classic @_thinkcolor BLK POW Tees with @macflyfresh to raise $10k— Consider grabbing a T for everyone in the fam (no order is ‘too small’) or make a 💰 donation to @blkmrktclt before this year is over!

Let’s secure this bag so that we can bring @duragfest to a city near you! 2019— here we go!!! 📸: @dammit_wesley #durag #duragfestival #juneteenth #charlotte #charlotteiscreative
