Someone once told me, "Dig where you stand."
As a New Yorker obsessed with Black history, I do that daily. I place my hands in the soil of five boroughs and beyond, reminding us of all that's been erased or ignored. I have no patience for historical exclusion.
This blog is where I'll keep the notes from my passion for unearthing the stories of Black enclaves--places where we thrived and are still doing so. This is also the place where I'll show you how Black history is a part of my daily life.
I hope my work inspires you to do your research because I can't do it alone.
