This is my bestie. My sister from another mister. The most talented, giving person in my world. Lets help her get to Rwanda so she can help our brown babies over there. Shams school’s partnership with Kigali Institute of Education allows her to contribute to the reconstruction of Rwanda’s education system by sharing her applied theater methods with KIE’s first ever drama educators in training.

I could cry. But I won’t.

“I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.” - Frida Kahlo

The young are restless…
We have to consciously study how to be tender with each other until it becomes a habit because what was native has been stolen from us; the love of Black women for each other.
