OP-ED: Post- Hurricane Katrina And The Present State Of Mental Health Care in New Orleans

We continue to talk about hurricane Katrina but not the mental health care many still don't receive post- Katrina.August 23, 2016 will make eleven years since hurricane Katrina formed. It hit New Orleans, Louisiana august 29th, 2005. Around this time of year something I've always noticed is many natives of the city get very touchy and aggravated. The fact news stations and social media continue to replay the horror of the aftermath Katrina left angers and devastates many people here. They're…See More

BLACK VEGANS ROCK: Jordan Cates aka babegloss advocates for animal rights and ethical consumption

My name is Jordan. I'm black, I'm queer, I'm a punk and I'm a vegan. I'm also a drummer. My band is called Roadkill. We're punk and emphasize animal rights and veganism in our music. I went vegetarian when I was 15 in 2012. I watched Paul McCartney's "If Slaughterhouses Had Glass Walls" video on YouTube which highlights the ethical side of vegetarianism. I went vegetarian immediately but was conscious that I wanted to go vegan because the video touched on the cruelty of dairy too, I just…See More

Black Girls Picnic: A movement in collective self-care

Posted on August 23, 2016 at 10:12am 0 Comments

From morning till night a Black woman’s mind is filled with thoughts on how to maintain her survival. On top of life stresses like child care, rent, bills, travel, socialising, keeping up with current affairs and exploring creativity, if we are employed, we find ourselves in White institutions, wading through the muddy waters of racism and sexism that slowly chips away at our feelings of self worth.
