Dillard Brings Brain Food To The Masses With Renowned HBCU Lecture Series
Huffington Post - about 3 years
Dillard University will welcome renowned gospel artist Kirk Franklin to the campus on Feb 6., an appearance made possible by the university’s signature ‘Brain Food’ presidential lecture series. Franklin will be the latest in a cast of diverse, distinguished presenters on the historic New Orleans HBCU campus this semester, joining Martin Luther King Jr. speechwriter Clarence Jones, CNN Political Analyst Sunny Hostin, and faith-based social justice activist Jim Wallis. They are a part of a lecture series renaissance on HBCU campuses around the country, thanks to the success of its modern-day patron saint, Dillard President Walter Kimbrough. A scholar on Black Greek-lettered organizations and a veteran presenter on organizational hazing, Kimbrough helped to revive the HBCU lecture series as the former president of Philander Smith College. “It’s a great opportunity for students to hear key people of the day,” says Kimbrough, who assumed the Dillard presidency in July 2012. “HBCU stude ...

Glennisha Morgan: The Emasculation of Black Men, Homophobia and Misogyny: A Dangerous Vicious Cycle
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
As I anxiously and giddily sat watching The Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion Part Three a few Sundays ago, something that Kenya Moore, one of the women featured on the show, said stuck with me during the rest of the week. Her accusations of her former boyfriend Walter being gay seemed spiteful and juvenile. She contradicted herself following her allegation with a statement basically claiming that she only questioned Walter's sexuality, but that it wasn't malicious, and asserted that being gay isn't a character flaw. I'm not exactly a fan of Ms. "Gone With The Wind Fabulous", but her attempt to clear up that particular madness scored her a few brownie points with me, especially knowing that she's buddies with a few gay men on the show. With my small moment of joy in mind, I began to think even more about the situation, which tends to happen frequently, especially within the Black community. The week before Moore was gunning to be crowned drama queen on the reunion sho ...

Karrine “Superhead” Steffans Tells All About Ray J/Bobby Brown Confrontation
24 Hip Hop - almost 5 years
(RO) – In the article, Vanity Fair’s contributing editor Mark Seal talks with several people connected to the late pop icon, including to Karrine Steffans, the onetime girlfriend of Houston’s ex husband Bobby Brown.   Seal writes that Ray J was a cause for concern to people associated with the I Will Always Love You singer. Steffans told Seal that one night she received a call from Ray J. “He said, ‘Is Bob (Bobby Brown) still staying with you?’ I said, ‘Yeah, he’s right here.’ And Ray said, ‘Tell him I f*cked both of his chicks, you and now his wife.’”  Steffans goes on to tell Seal, “Bob’s big thing was everyone blamed him for her downfall, but when he met her she was already using drugs. He always felt very angry about that. He told me, ‘What everybody saw wasn’t the real Whitney.’ He always said her private persona—which you saw on Being Bobby Brown—was who she really was.”   In the article, Seal also says he reached out to Whitney’s longtime friend and former creative direc ...

Superhead Talks Taking It Off For Terry Richardson
Crunktastical - almost 5 years
It would probably be a good idea to pause for a moment and acknowledge Karrine Steffan’s presence in Crunkland since I am more than confident that she has Google alerts set up for her name. You’re here, I’m pleased. Stretching out her latest excrement, I mean, interval of relevancy in the same fashion she has done to her vagina in the past, the Vixen Diaries author stroked the keys to recall stroking a strap-on during a provocative shoot with photographer <a class="fplink fp-264534" href="/Terry+Richardson+1">Terry Richardson</a>, also sharing a Not Safe For Work behind the scenes video from her time in front of the camera. Nigliterature. So, there I was, out of my mind. I had to be to do what needed to be done. Terry wanted nudes. And, though I’d obviously been nude in public before, there was so much more on the line. After all, this is the man who has shot everyone who’s anyone, from GaGa to Lohan and beyond. I wanted to be a part of that. I wanted to do this opportun ...

You’re probably still in shock that the woman still formerly known as Superhead is someone’s wife. But now, it looks like she may have a bun in the oven. <a class="fplink fp-548079" href="/karrine+steffans">Karrine Steffans</a>, who still refuses to share her new hubby’s name (or face) with the public, has no problem letting her adoring fans in on some of their private moments. For example, on Sunday, she shared this happy moment: Along with the picture, she reminded readers that about three weeks ago, she posted this little video of her post-coital nekked self in bed talking about the smiley face on her fertility monitor with the hubby. Before that, there was this picture of the fertility kit itself. And before that, was week one.
