Dreams really do come true!


Jurnee Smollettt-Bell slays EBONY’s March cover.

After years of grinding (and plenty of daydreaming), I can finally say that I landed my very first byline in EBONY Magazine and I must say there’s nothing like seeing your name and words in a magazine as legendary as EBONY.


On page 43, I dive into the rich yet unknown history of headwraps and why we wear them today. I still remember the summer of 2012 when all I did was study the magazine from front to back, dreaming of the day when I would see my words grace its pages. Shout out to Marielle Bobo, who asked me to take on this piece after noticing some of my online work with the “Detangling Our Roots” series.


The March issue with the gorgeous Jurnee Smollett-Bell slaying the cover is on newsstands now (and yep, that’s me there on the Contributors page). PS I’ve already got pieces slated for EBONY‘s April/May and June issues, so stay tuned!
