January 2024

Features:

In November, I went to Montgomery, Alabama for the National Association of Multicultural Education (NAME) Conference.
Micaela Berry-Smith, the program manager of maternal and child health initiatives at the Foundation for Black Women’s Wellness, has deep family-tree roots in the area of medicine, roots that stretch back to at least the early 1800s in Antebellum Kentucky.
When Ms. Milele asked me to join her at UMOJA as a writer and eventually a photographer, I did not realize the profound impact her request would have on my life.

Calling all artists!
