Check out my two feature articles in EBONY Sept 2018 Fashion Issue. I had the pleasure to speak with the indefatigable Emmy Award-nominated lead actress and TV show creator, Issa Rae. I write about her experience with the Peabody award-winning HBO series “Insecure” and how its success is helping her to provide a voice for people of color in Hollywood.

Also, I talk with Emmy Award-winning editor and filmmaker Nicole Franklin and how her leap into investing in cryptocurrency is allowing her to compete in the trillion-dollar Media and Entertainment industry. Plus I give a snapshot of the digital coins in “Cryptocurrency 101” Check out “Woman in the Mirror” and “Coin Collector” both written by me in EBONY September 2018.
