Introduction Hi, I'm Enuma. Thanks for checking this blog out. It's no surprise that black women have been positively impacting the world since the beginning of time. Yeah, "The Beginning of Time." The only problem is that it's just often gone unnoticed. As a black woman myself I am surprised by how much I do not know of what women of my own race have contributed in history. So this blog is an effort to self-educate and share with others what I find. Every couple of weeks I will research the accomplishments of one more beautiful black woman and post my findings and reflections on this blog. That's all this is, just another beautiful black woman trying to honor the role and achievements black women have made in history. Thanks for recognizing with me. And do me a favor- please send your daughters and their young friends to this site. It's never too early to start learning about the gifts of one more beautiful black woman. - Enuma http://www.enumaokoro.com
Interests I am a first generation African American woman in her thirties. I grew up on three different continents in several countries with successful parents who taught me to see the world as one big adventure to stare straight in the face and joyfully tackle. My mind is active and engaged and I do not lack for motivation and aspiration in life. I am deeply thankful for all of this. BUT, I do not know enough about the contributions that black women have made to public life throughout history. And as a result I believe that I am missing something in my ongoing intellectual formation. So that’s why I started this blog. My hunger for learning is insatiable and I am interested in too many things to list. But I have a penchant for cultural studies, world history, race relations and literature. I'm a writer and educator by vocation. I did my graduate work in two areas: Marriage and Family Therapy at Northwestern University, IL and in Theology at Duke University, NC.
Favorite Books Again, too many to list but a few to date are, A Lesson Before Dying by Earnest Gaines, One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, The End of the Affair by Graham Greene, King Leopold's Ghost by Adam Hochschild, and Creation and Fall by Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
