About me

As a freelance journalist and writer, my work has been published in The City Sun, 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. 


I contributed an essay published as Commentary to Chapter 1, prefacing 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 with 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 written about New York City’s Administration Children Services’ harassment and removal of a child from his family.

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


The Brooks Blackboard is a multimedia site with published content focused on race, politics and social issues.  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 publishes work from several well-established news sources, that explains and analyzes our material condition, particularly our political 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, I will post not only my writings but I will also include curated news content, along with site pages filled with political educational content. I want this site to be different. Not a site with solely my writings but I wanted more. A site that provided more...that gave more. 

I thought this would be the best opportunity for a relaunch and really build on the mission to be the best political writer but build the best site for independent journalism by providing the most important political information and analysis. A site with the news you can use! 

Our team is 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
