Rooting your business in purpose is an incredibly effective way to plant the seeds of change our society is seeking. For the month of March, I am exploring the importance of leading with purpose in entrepreneurship to cultivate a socially impactful enterprise. By the end of this series, you should have an understanding of why leading your business with purpose is important, what makes for a purpose-driven company, and the specific gains to be made when interacting with your audience, simply by leading with purpose.

A mission outlines your business goals, but purpose is the empathetic angle that transcends rationale…


The lack of diversity is not new, but needs to change

My experience as a non-White, non-male human in tech was quite literally the reason I bowed out of that world. It was an overwhelming experience that caused me to quit my job without notice one day. I didn’t see it coming at that point in time, though. I was actually under the impression that I was on my way to another 8-hours of microaggression hell that day, when I decided as I walked through the doors that I didn’t actually have to go through that anymore. And so I said, “I’m done,” and I left.

They tell you that it’s…

Lekki Market in Lagos, Nigeria by Anita Obasi

Out of all shopping experiences I’ve had in my life, none are more exciting and engaging than shopping in the Lagos markets of Nigeria. It’s a multi-sensory affair that is chaotic and overwhelming. I love every part of it.

I love walking down the street and seeing a waterfall of color and textiles and patterns cascading down before me, as I walk deeper and deeper into the eye of the storm.

I love being accosted by…

Bayard Rustin, the person who organized the March on Washington, organized the Freedom Rides, helped create the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, and was one of Martin Luther King Jr.’s closest advisors, was also…GAY AF.

I love (read: hate, yet am wholly unsurprised at) how that little detail is lost in the general storyline They teach you about the Civil Rights movement.

I mean, I guess it’s not as lost in this age of Wikipedia, but, I…

Growing up, my history classes — in retrospect —were a space where gross inaccuracies thrived. For one, the idea of slavery was normalized as simply a fact of history! …

Happy Black History Month!

This piece is a preface to a series paying homage to 2021’s theme for Black History Month — The Black Family: Representation, Identity, and Diversity.

Each week, I will publish an article highlighting an overshadowed leader in the movement for Black lives, as well as spotlighting my own Black heritage within the theme’s framework. But first, a little “Intro to Black History Month” lesson…

This year, Black History Month will have a heightened significance in the U.S. With our first ever Black Vice President in office, Black Lives Matter having sealed its place in history as…


Those looks made for an event saturated in symbolism

Maybe it’s because I’ve spent most of Pandemic in various forms of athleisure and different iterations of sweats, but if there’s one way the Inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris filled me with inspiration — outside of the simple fact that we can once again find confidence in the Executive Branch’s ability to speak a coherent sentence — it was with the style that permeated the ceremony.

I mean, come ON — was that a political ceremony, or a preview of New York Fashion Week 2021!?

The symbolism intertwined in many of the outfits donned for…

Today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a federal holiday celebrating the only non-president to have an official U.S. holiday honoring them.

MLK Jr. Day holds an especially weighty meaning this year, sitting only a couple of days before this year’s U.S. inauguration that will, for the first time ever, formalize the role of a Black and female Vice President in the White House (shoutout to my fellow Black-Indian, Kamala Harris)!

In honor of Black women and their importance in MLK’s fight for racial equality, it’s important to highlight his efforts in saving Star Trek for Black people, by convincing…

Today, I am here to talk about how Black people have invented and pioneered so much in regards to the positive development of humanity, but our community’s contributions to music specifically continues to make me shooketh.

That being said, 2020 continued to deliver the heat in all realms of Black music, so I’ve done you the favor of compiling a list of Top 10 bops in Black music, broken down by genre and some other fun categories (“Bad Bitches Only” arguably doesn’t qualify as a genre.)

For the purposes of this article, we are basing the definition of Black music…
