On Hiatus

I'm taking some time off from blogging to work on some other projects and of course live my life and enjoy the summer. As of right now I plan to be back after the 4th of July, but I may extend this hiatus until after Labor day.

Either way, I will not leave you without my opinion and things that catch my attention. This will be done via The Essence of Me's Facebook page. This is where I will repost and comment on things that I normally would blog about.

Chat with you soon!

Black Latina Movement

A few months after moving to NYC, I attended Black Latina (the Play). The characters' story lines were so real and relatable that I became an instant fan of the play and the women behind it.

Crystal Roman, Founder of the Black Latina Movement (BLM), is doing something really special and unique. From the play and a series, to tours and other productions, this collective is creating entertaining content, all while educating the masses about Black Latinas.

"We dedicate the Movement to exhibiting the beauty and harmony 
of both African and Latino cultures..."

Because I love everything BLM is doing, I am very excited to share this interview. In which I chatted with Crystal Roman about BLM's productions, purpose, and future plans.
