Updating my vitae and I was reminded we created a cultural innovation hub with the Kuumba Kafe/Images of Africa. Vegan dining, smoothies, desserts, live music, readings, African art, Black literature, book discussions and lots of laughter all under one roof. Operated in Little Rock in1995 to early 2002 before soul veganism and vegetarianism became popular in Little Rock.
Past presenters and performers included Haki Madhubuti Haki Madhubuti, James Leary, Jessica Care Moore, Kevin Powell, Ivan Van Sertima, John Henrik Clarke, Kathy Couch Maryman, Tim Anthony, Gerald Johnson, Ras Levi Llaila O Afrika and numerous others.
The urge returns periodically to try it again but then the thoughts of an island home with large kitchen takes over. 🤣🤣 -

Chap. 3 - “The Mecca vs. Big Apple”
I jumped around a bit between a few Division II and Division IAA schools my first couple of years of college, still stubbornly in pursuit of my childhood Hoop Dreams. Finally, once I decided to focus solely on architecture I settled down in DC and found a home at ”the Mecca”, Howard University! There I would find an endless treasured supply of inspiring mentors, passionate friends, rich culture, and an expansive network.
With constant distractions on campus and the city, it admittedly took me a while to settle in and focus on my studies. Luckily I had a few amazing professors who saw true potential in me and made a concerted effort to encourage and push me further. To this day Prof. Ed Dunson, Barbara Laurie (RIP), Harry Robinson and Kathryn Prigmore all hold a special place in my heart, I continue to seek their counsel and guidance when needed, and I contribute any and all success within the profession to their support, love and mentorship.
It was through their encouragement I had the confidence to apply to Grad School at various Ivy League Schools and was eventually accepted into Columbia University’s Architecture and Urban Design graduate program. Once in New York, things seemed to move even faster as I worked tirelessly to keep pace with the overwhelming coursework and studio, as well as a diverse pool of new classmates, young and old, from all across the globe.
Throughout my undergrad and graduate matriculation I was blessed and fortunate to travel and study abroad in Europe, Asia and Central America. Traveling quickly brought deeper perspectives and experiences that enriched my life and ambitious drive for success in immeasurable ways.
If you FEEL like “nothing” it’s because you THINK you are.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve sat down to write & found myself staring at the computer for 45 minutes to an hour because I felt like I had nothing to say.
“Nothing” isn’t exactly true. I start then stop. I write 3 paragraphs & then decide, “this is garbage & makes 0 sense”. Delete. Start over. Delete. Walk away. Nothing.
When we are consumed by nothingness is typically when we’re also simultaneously caught-up in judgment. I call it, “If I do this, then that.”
It’s a model we operate in that suggests there is a criterion for our creativity, success, love, abundance, ANYTHING. It doesn’t matter necessarily WHO created the criteria or WHAT it is, WHAT matters is that the WHO embodying it is Y-O-U.
When we settle into an idealized rubric that says, “I need to operate on this level or blah-blah WILL or WON’T happen” is typically when the nothingness creeps in. “I’m not operating at this standard so I’ll do nothing.” Which then conversely turns into, “I’ve created nothing, so I have nothing to offer.” Which then transforms into, you guessed it… I Am, Can, Do, & Accomplish Nothing. It’s a wicked web!
I do it too. I allow myself to think that if a piece I write or LIVE engaged or Program run, isn’t a grand slam, then it’s basically static; just noise flooding the airwaves of life for which no one has time.
How do I get myself out of the nothingness?
I exercise to clear my mind of the “You’re Nothing” echo & increase serotonin aka happy juice.
I get support from my Coach, Friends, or Entrepreneurs to hold me accountable to my greatness.
I also… you guessed it… write. I may walk away for a moment, but I commit to always come back.
Why? Because I AM a writer. Just as you are a Coach, Manager, Mom, Lover, Entrepreneur, or Friend. We come back because it’s WHO WE ARE, not what we do. We come back because it’s WHO we choose to be about it.
When we are conflicted by something, no matter what it is, it’s important to recognize when we RUN from it or hide in judgment. When we RUN, we give whatever we’re thinking space to plant roots. We say, “I believe you.” I am no-thing. (more in comments)

Chap. 2 - “The Triple A’s”
Growing up I had three main focuses since 6th grade - Academics, Athletics and Art. My family and I called these “the Triple A’s” and my entire life and schedule revolved around them.
I’ve always been competitive since I was young, so sports quickly became my world and I enjoyed playing several sports as a child. Overtime basketball became my passion and I excelled competitively throughout high school. I started on the varsity team at George Washington H.S., a local 5A powerhouse public school in Denver during the season, while traveling during the summer playing AAU ball competing in basketball tournaments across the state and Las Vegas. Like most kids I had Hoop Dreams and goals of one day making it to the NBA... Luckily I had Art lined up as a back up.
Art was something that came naturally to me at a very early age as I aspired to be a great artist just like my Uncle John. I attended Denver School of the Arts throughout Middle School majoring in Visual Arts and explored a wide variety of mediums while under the tutelage of several amazing local artist. With my moms support as my “business manager” I began selling my artwork in 6th grade at various church events, local street fairs, and the annual Black Arts Festival.
After years of success being featured as one of Denver’s rising youth artist, I began to ponder my future career, and was scared of becoming another starving artist like so many other extremely talented artists I’ve come to work with and respect over the years. At some point in high school my art teacher recommended Architecture, stressing it as a respectable and rewarding career that would allow me opportunities to leverage my artist talent while creating spaces and places that could positively change the built environment. From that moment on I was hooked and knew what I wanted to do with my life, the only question was where... #Takeover
“Say it Louder!” - Found at a friend’s house, this bright saying caught my eye. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
For basically my whole adult life, I’ve been working on restructuring my words so that what I have to say is better received by others. And, as a child, loud was what I was known for—and not in a good way. Let’s just say I haven’t always been the most tactful person. 😄 I’m still not, but I’ve improved.
BUT that doesn’t mean that what I have to say is wrong, unimportant, or unworthy of being said. I have learned that people will hear me better if I speak with more care, and voice my ideas with confidence.
Speak up, use my big girl voice, say what needs saying, while being mindful of my words.
This is something we’re training our kids to do (it’s a work in progress!)—think about what you say, speak your words confidently, don’t hide your words behind your silly voice. It’s a hard trick to communicate to them that I want them to be big and bold and use their voice and feel confident in who they are, their thoughts and opinions—but also to express themselves so others can hear what they’re saying.
Deep thoughts for this gloomy Wednesday morning. ☔️
