C & C Life Factory

There is a rhythm, a flow, a bounce to life… you know that groove that you find yourself in when “PYT” comes on… and EVERYBODY moves to PYT!!! It’s just a natural sway. When you get on top of that bounce, sway swaggin (I just…

On the other side of the door…

Code-switching… If you are a Black professional, you know this phenomenon all too well. You might be the most articulate and proper Black person in your circle, but you still know it all too well. Often, it’s like being under hypnosis, the minute the bell…

The Big Payback

I may go down 9 times, but I get up 10! I am a woman. I am Black. I am HIGHLY educated and very smart. I am creative. I am a leader. I can manage myself, others, cases, and projects from start to finish. I…

The Color Black
