What is a seminal read that changed your perspectives or broadened your views of the African American Community?

Hands down that book for me would have to be: Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston. It was a very captivating turn of century tale where issues that people still like to roll under the rug like race and politics was addressed well by Hurston. It just showed more creativity and passion amongst black folks that sparked a whole discussion on the issues.

What do you hope to gain from this experience?

I'm looking to meet some new connections and friends in Memphis. I been here about 2 years from New York, but haven't made alot of connections since I been traveling so much with work. Now that I'm winding down for grad school here in Memphis, I would hope to meet some like minded progressive African Americans.

Please share two things about you that can be shared by way of introduction.

I have a very strong sense of smell and taste which is a good thing since I'm a chef. Most of the time when I meet people, I often remember their names by how they smelt to me upon introduction. I'm a real workaholic with the ability to cut up and let my hair down and have some fun.


Cool, calm New Yorker with style, class, and boldness looking for new connections in Memphis as an educated, single lady of distinction
