Thank Grimm It’s Friday!

Russell Hornsby1K. It’s truth time. I love Grimm! It’s one of my all-time favorite shows.  I have to admit, in the beginning I was simply intrigued with the “fairy tale” storyline.  When Grimm was in Season 1, I thought it was just another “fairy tale” show that would flop.  Really, I believed that there was only so much that could be done.  This season I have been pleasantly surprised and now I consider myself a legitimate “Grimm” fan.

Guest Fest: Does Being Black Mean Writing Black? By Alicia Michaels

aliciamichaelsI will start this post by admitting to living in a bit of a bubble my entire life. I’m a small town girl from the suburbs with two loving parents and a little brother. The small town I lived in was situated right beside Fort Hood Army base, the largest military installation in the world. While my father got out of the army before I got to Kindergarten, the presence of the military was a strong force in my community. As such, I am accustomed to a multicultural mix of people living and working around me. It is not unusual for soldiers to come home from overseas with Korean or German wives and for biracial children to dominate schools.
