about me

My writing as a freelance journalist and writer began when my first article was published in The City Sun (New York City). Since then, my work was published in the New York Amsterdam News, The Final Call, The African Sun Times, The Black Collegian, The Black Star News, The Source, The Black Issues in Black Review, The Quarterly Black Review, The Black World Today (TBWT.com) and The Black Collegian Online (IMDiversity.com). Here is a link to a page with published articles posted on the Internet. 


My essay, "Commentary to Chapter 1" introduced the “Origins, Ancestors and Memory,” chapter in Sacred Fire: The QBR 100 Essential BlackBooks published in 2001.  I attended the historic 2001 World Conference Against Racism held in Durban, South Africa on assignment and wrote reports for The New York Amsterdam News, The Black World Today and The African Sun Times.  I also received third place honors from the New York Association of Black Journalists for an article outlining a campaign of harrassment by New York City’s Administration Children Services’ in their removal of a Black child from his family.

As you can see, I write about Black people...for Black people. 


As you know, we are living in a time with so much going on. We must remain focused and grounded in our understanding about what is going on through educating ourselves, politically.  The current confusion and chaos compels clear analysis and news reporting to inform our awareness.  

The Brooks Blackboard is a news media site with published content focused on race, politics and social issues. We publish work from several well-established news sources, that explains and analyzes our political and our material condition  - where are we and how we got there.

Before COVID, The Blackboard Blog was focused solely on my writing but was rebranded and relaunched in 2020 as The Brooks Blackboard.  Now, we post not only my writings but we now include curated news content, along with the INTEL page filled with political educational content. I want this site to be different. Not a site with solely my writings but a site that informed and provide some sense of awareness of what is going on in the world around us.  

Our team is working on developing brands around book reviews, visual content and the self-publication of my first book that explores the Clinton presidency and Black America.

  1. There's controlled proof that suggests that the feeling connected with anxiety before magnifies how we respond to anxiety sometime soon mainly because anxiety really varies one's body whilst your head. Accountant Amsterdam
