You'll get everything above PLUS Ask me anything on the Social Knowledge Sharing site Quora. I got my start answering all sorts of question on Quora. There you are free to ask anything in the world and (within reason) you can message me in the activity feed here on Patreon and I will answer it on Quora. Really cool questions might even turn into future write-ups!




Thank you for visiting my Patreon support page. I'm a teacher by profession, but I'm a writer and artist by choice. I’ve written over two thousand posts, answers, articles, stories and other pieces. I focus on current events articles, photo essays, short stories, nonfiction and anecdotes meant to analyze, criticize, challenge, uncover and uplift. I've had my work shown in half a dozen galleries and exhibits. I've traveled to Ferguson, NY, Baltimore, Cleveland and across the country raising awareness on police brutality. Currently, I am a teacher in my hometown and writing and art are an extension of my activist work in confronting and ultimately dismantling a system robbing us all of our humanity.

Being a artist and organizer in this world is getting harder and harder. I'd like to use your patronage to focus on this work and be allowed to continue to do it more frequently.  If you are passionate about social justice, please consider donating as little or as much as you like to help support my endeavors as I travel, document and organize individuals and communities to be the leaders they are looking for. Pledges are in US dollars and are monthly.

This is part of my continued series of the invisibility of Black people as people, but the hyper-visibility of their bodies and fetishization of their bodies.

Why Patreon?
Patreon is an easy way for people to show their support and appreciation while also helping me to continue my work.

How Does It Work?
Put any amount in the box above, enter your details, and each month, you'll be charged that amount. Check my website or the 'Creations' tab at the top of this box to see some example of the work you will be supporting and the photo essays that accompany it.

How often will payments be made?
You should set your monthly maximum donation amount when you check out, so that you only donate what you want. You can also pause donations or cancel completely at any time.

Should I pledge loads and loads of money?

Yes please! If you donate any of the amounts in the reward boxes at the bottom of this page, you will also receive lovely gifts!

With enough support, I would be able to apply myself to photography and all the work that goes along with it. While life-changing for myself, I believe that with more space, I can provide much more needed discourse on race and gender.
