Justice pon di Road

...Justice feels special all the time but he feels even more special in Jamaica. From the moment he steps off the airplane, everyone greets him with a warm Jamaican smile…

Justice pon di Road is a children’s picture book about a toddler and his mother experiencing the sights, sounds and tastes of island culture through the kindness of strangers on a morning walk. Inspired by our trips to Jamaica, the book includes a glossary of patois words, facts about Jamaica and a map of the island.

Nappy: Growing up Black & Female in America

What started out as a personal essay for Essence magazine about why I decided to go to natural hair morphed into a journey of self-discovery. Thank goodness for small independent Black-owned publishers. Nappy might not have been published if it were not for Harlem River Press.
