From November of 2020, I’ve been fortunate to write for an amazing magazine called The Urban Sentinel.
Urban Sentinel is a magazine based out of Waldorf, Maryland. It contains positive and uplifting stories about entrepreneurship in the Black community. You get to read about the most interesting artists and entrepreneurs in the D.C. – Maryland – Virginia area, and accomplishments made by Black entrepreneurs nationwide.
I’ve been privileged to highlight so many business and legal topics, from the abolishment of the Death Penalty in Virginia to the lives of careers of civil rights leaders T.R.M. Howard and Ruby Hurley.
Take a glimpse of some of the articles that I’ve written for Urban Sentinel below.
