Matriarch Ma Morris

Family [fam-uh-lee, fam-lee] a collection of souls intimately connected by blood, as parents, children, uncles, aunts, and cousins. Regrettably, requiems and nuptials inescapably bring our family together. The Flores, Jennings, and Morris families made the journey to 🇹🇹 for the funeral services for Matriarch Ma Morris on May 17, 2019.

Trinidad Carnival a mi·sog·y·nist culture?

I am a 🇹🇹 by birth, but I currently live in Maryland, 🇺🇸. I still, however, acknowledge Trinidad and Tobago and its culture as home and the space in which I feel most comfy. One of Trinidad’s most renowned commodities is Trinidad Carnival and thousands congregate on the island every year for the annual festivities.

Martin Luther King Jr. and the long walk to freedom.

Earlier this week on January 15, 2019, Martin Luther King Junior would have turned 90 if his life hadn’t been abruptly ended by an assassin on April 4, 1968. In 2019, MLK Jr. day is being observed for the first time by the company I work for and the company is urging employees to engage in a National Day of Service in recognition of MLK’s life and legacy. The company’s acknowledgement for me is both a sign of momentum and anxiety in the comprehensive dialogue about Diversity & Inclusion in America.
