African American Issues

Chapter #44, Try Jesus!

The Beautiful Chaos: Right now, I am sitting in my office with my headphones on listening to Brandy’s new album – B7! FIAH. I was a junior in high school when her first self-titled album debuted on the charts. It feels good to open up my thoughts with the universe listening to some feel good ass music – that real to real ish. So much has taken place since March 10, 2020 in my life that I cannot sit here and write about it forever. At some point, you have to accept what is taking place. In this case, COVID-19 is here and I am doing my best to survive mentally just like you. Have you ever had a moment in life where everything clicked in the midst of chaos? Sometimes, I feel like I need to pinch myself, because I never in a million years thought that a PhD was written in my book of life, by my home Jesus. Sidebar: S/O to Kamala Harris for becoming the first African American woman to be nominated for Vice-President of the United States.

As the first to go this far in academia in my family on both ends of the spectrum, the feeling that I have at this moment is one that I will never forget. When I look at African American Librarianship there are two women that I admire and will be channeling their spirits throughout this journey including Dr. Eliza Atkins Gleason, the first African American to receive a Doctorate in Library Science and Jean Blackwell Hutson, she served as Chief Curator of the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture from 1948 – 1980. Their lives speaks volumes to me and I believe opened the doors for me to walk through and rise for my people, in order to help my people. My new brand for this ride is entitled: sistah phd! If you with me, definitely check back here to read more about this chapter in my life. Trust and believe, I will be wearing kicks (NIKE CROSS TRAINERS) this go round when I walk across the stage! I AM MY ANCESTORS WILDEST DREAM.

By the way, #allmyfriendsreadbooks
