A citizen of the Americas (including of course the U.S.) and the world.
Born and raised in the Upper South USA, I am a member of the Black American ethnic community: those families descended from enslavement in the United States. Writer and Washington, DC native still waiting after 200+ yeears for the people of the Nation'sCapital, Washington, to have Statehood for Washington, DC for equal representation in the U.S. Congress. Along with tens of millions of others I live an interesting, challenging life at the intersections of race + gender, the Americas, Europe, Africa, with Asia along the edges: the global North & South, and the global South in the North.
