What is an earthSista?

What is an earthSista?

The Evolution of SHE continues to exist through my presence in the garden.  As seeds are planted and our garden is cultivated, I am constantly asked what it means to be an earthSista.  In essence we are all unique, which is the heart of our movement.  Therefore, I can only express what an earthSista is to SHE.  Hopefully many of you can identify with my words or create your own identity within the...

WGO? Lupita speaks out on Harvey Weinstein

WGO? Lupita speaks out on Harvey Weinstein

I had felt very much alone when these things happened, and I had blamed myself for a lot of it, quite like many of the other women who have shared their stories. But now that this is being discussed openly, I have not been able to avoid the memories resurfacing. I have felt sick in the pit of my stomach. I have felt such a flare of rage that the experience I recount below was not a unique incident...

She’s Gotta Have It

She’s Gotta Have It

In his second film, some thirty years ago, Spike Lee directed and produced a quirky black-and-white artsy film called She’s Gotta Have It.

By the late ’80s’ filmmakers had c...

Dia De Los Muertos is an ancestral worship holiday with origins from the Latin community. It’s a time when festivals are held in honor loved ones who have passed and celebrants honor them by bringing sugar skulls, marigolds, foods and drink to their graves as gifts.

pgp399: Chantrelle Lenoir… an interlude with an artist in her space

“I have been painting for a little over a year now. I didn’t go to an art school or have any formal skill trainings. I have always sketched, but never because I wanted to, only because I knew how. The moment I picked up a paint brush I felt so liberated. I was able to say everything I had always wanted to, but kept bottled up for so long. I decided that this is what I wanted to do for ...

pgp398: remembering Naturally Leslie

In the early days when Pangea’s Garden was a project where I explored my own visions of what afrosensuality should look like, there was Naturally Leslie. Her balance of serious insight and lightheartedness made her pearls of wisdom valuable to all who are fortunate to partake. This article originally ran one month after the launch of PangeaGarden.com and the conversation reflected heavily on what ...

WGO? What the Hell should we do?

In Louisiana, a black man selling cds in a parking lot was pinned to the ground and shot to death by police after he was immobilized. And in Texas, officers were sniped...
