OUR STORY

Born and raised on the Westside of Detroit, I began my wood journey at Barnabus Youth Center, learning how to treat, engrave and professionally produce wooden crafts. This skill combined with 5 years of community organizing experience, and a passion for community shared values, I am now embarking on a new, fulfilling journey along with you all - my KwanzaaMe family.

 

I attended Cass Tech High School and afterwards received a Bachelor of Arts from University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. While a student activist fighting injustice at U of M, I also earned my MSW and it sparked my passion for community building. As a community organizer I've had the honor to fight and build with many, and KwanzaaMe is the fruit of that labor.

At KwanzaaMe, we believe Black people deserve a sense of belonging, celebration and to set goals & intentions about community success. We are so excited to build bridges between where we are, and where we want to go as individuals, family, and community by celebrating Kwanzaa. 

 

So order a kinara, light a candle, and join us at KwanzaaMe! #KwanzaaMePlease
