Asia Monique: The Pretty Poodle With the Pipes

One of my favorite observances is Black Music Month. Not that I don’t listen to “black music” during the rest of the year. Besides, our cultural influence is in pretty much all the major genres.

Seriously, while everyone was watching One Saturday Morning, Sweet Valley High and Nickelodeon, my mama made me watch the news or listen to books on tape like I was in the 1930s waiting for the Fireside Chats.

The Only Way To Tell If Greeks Are About That Life

What’s up Fam Bam! If you’re new to DPTaughtMe, welcome! This month we’ve been exploring  some pretty candid conversations around effective leadership in Greekdom and where/how we can improve in those areas.
