As a journalist, I like to write about race, identity politics, parenting and pop culture. I also have a special affinity for Black hair culture. These days I consider myself a multimedia journalist because I write for magazines, newspapers, websites and blogs. Here’s a sampling of some of my favorite stories.

For the Columbia Journalism Review: Separate But Equal? The Role of the Black Media in the 21st Century

For the New York Times: The Case for Black with a Capital B

For Beacon Broadside: For Colored Girls Who Were Mistaken for the Nanny By a Public Who Didn’t Know Enough.
