Vanquishing the Ego: sharing your gifts

Regardless of how humble our surroundings or our resources, we always have something to share. It's only ego that keeps us in fear that we aren't good enough, that we aren't enough...

Yea ninjas, that's my Christmas tree too, so no cutting up!

Don't Force it!

Aw, you forced it!!! (shout out to the Boston folks)

Stories of coincidence or divine incident? How we can all be more like the water, flexible, ever changing, forceful yet yielding...patiently molding mountains wave by wave.

Un Casamiento de negros: Fede & Ceci get married!

Two of my favorite people in Buenos Aires get married! My first Argentine wedding and it's as described by Fede's mom "un casamiento de negros". Unfortunately, my silly butt didn't get any pictures of the newlyweds...so I've replaced them with a another random interracial couple. Just playing...this is my friend Erika and Uli at Fede & Ceci's Wedding!

Emerging community or Afro purgatory: Why am I here anyways??

As an Afro-American Studies/Economics concentrator how did I end up in the whitest Latin American country doing an anthropology project. Am I in an academic purgatory or is there really something to study??

A little bit about the history of the "Afro" community in Buenos Aires and most importantly did I actually buy some of these pickaninny faced cupcakes...??

Going, going, back, back to Buenos Aires....

So, thanks to the US government (this may be the only time I'll say this)...I've been given the opportunity of a lifetime!

This March 2010, I'll be headed back to the city that I fell in love with two years ago. I've been awarded a Fulbright Fellowship, which will allow me to live in the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina for about a year and research generational shifts in the ideology of the black community in Buenos Aires through the lens of hip-hop.
