What a beautiful picture on the cover of the latest edition of The Washington Informer! It really captured the beauty and the togetherness of everyone in the walk to fight HIV/AIDS. I’m glad that this issue is still getting the attention and the coverage it deserves, because it is still a major issue globally. I pray and I know that one day there will be a cure.

Arts Center a Beacon in Congress Heights

I was so happy to see the WI Bridge spotlighting nonprofits in the area, especially the Congress Heights Arts and Cultural Center. This place is amazing and it really is a hidden gem. Yoga, art, specialty soaps and more is what I love about the center right in my backyard. It’s important that Black millennials support places like this because it’s positive energy and can be a stabilizer for the youth in the area.
