I am a pretty easy going person who enjoys the simple things in
life. I believe in doing what I can to make the world a better
place and have been committed to social change/social justice work
since high school. I strive to live a God fearing life and as a
single mom, push to be a strong and supportive force in my
children's lives, nurturing within them life's most important
values as best I can. I believe in self-determintion as well as
I am looking for someone who is spiritually centered, or working to
be there. Someone who is family-centered and who loves children.
Someone who is personable and easy going -who I can be myself
around. Certainly I am looking for someone who has strong goals
himself, can be supportive of my goals, will challenge
me to do my best at achieving them and open to me doing the same.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Old lasting favorites are There Eyes Were Watching God (Hurston)
& The Bluest Eye (Morrison). I like autobiographies also.
I also enjoy inspiring and empowering books/readings on Black
studies/history, life improvement, spiritual growth, etc. The New
Jim Crow, Freedom Dreams, Are Prisons Obsolete. I did also
shamefully read the 50 Shades Trilogy (no judgement...hehe). My
boys and I enjoy reading other child friendly books together like
The Giver, Legend of Korra, City of Ember and the like.
The Food Network and Cooking Channel are favorite shows.
I love hip hop (especially underground), r&b, reggae, jazz -
all SOUL music, plus I dig a selected few country and folk songs (I
get made fun of but I don't care...haha...I like it!). I've lately
been developing an appreciation for a wider variety of music.
I enjoy great food...with great flavor and spice. I enjoy food from
all over the world. I do like sushi...a recent phenomenon for me! I
especially love when super healthy foods and superb flavors join
The six things I could never do without

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Private things are for private moments...get to know me!

You are sincere and not too concerned about the status quo or what
everyone else around is doing. If you are your own person and enjoy
vibing with someone who loves the simple things in life...it'll be
great to chat.
