My Journey

  "As I travel thru this life, I embrace the Yoruba Way"

Embracing the Yoruba Tradition is to Embody 4 Basic Principles:

1. Put God First.....drop the mic

2. Honor and Respect your Family (mother/father/child)

3. Then the clan of your extended family;

4. Embrace, uplift, and support your community

"In navigating my life and an African American Wo-man and transversing through my journey, I have adopted, embraced and lived the Yoruba Creed"

The Beginning 

It all began with my parents, my Spirit Guides. They've given me all that I need to flourish and an abundance of love/ family to navigate this life, and fulfill my destiny.

Growing Years

The making of Serita....my early years. I was unusually curious and consumed with learning information, and just wanted to experience everything.

School Daze & The Making of an Engineer

Life began for me after high school. I finally had the freedom to explore whatever I wanted to do or be. Having had many experiences at higher learning institutions, Howard University, my HBCU, along with my spirit guides deserve great credit for the making of this Wo-man. My fondest memories are those deep relationships with life-long friends and the consciousness of the plight of African Americans in the good ole USA.

U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission Plantation

This is the plantation where I made money. Nonetheless, I made good life-long friends and led significant high profile projects that impact the world today

Marriage 

Most didn't belive it happened. Here's the proof.

Community Ties

I've devoted a great deal of my life to serving the Black Community and my Family by helping the elderly, developed a community based Tutorial service out of my basement, Vice President of the Civic Association, Chair of the African American Community on NRC Plantation, Elder in leading family reunion, gatherings, etc.

I am the Godmother to a family of young men that I've known since they were little boys and they all stole my heart. But this one right here..... Lil Floyd.

Gift Giving

Your presence at this important event is the greatest gift that you can give me. If you desire to give me more, please make a contribution towards one of my favorite charities: The Innocence Project (to free inmates wrongfully convicted) or The Equal Justice Initiatives Legacy Museum & Memorial.

I'm sure that most of you didn't know I was so passionate about African American Mass Incarceration...it's the 20th and 21st centuries form of slavery. In the mid-nineties, I accompanied a dear friend to a luncheon that opened my eyes to mass incarceration and the death penalty. Thank you, Mr. Mealy. I've been researching and reading about this since the mid 90's. Two books that I would recommend are "Are Prisons Obsolete", by Angela Davis and "The New Jim Crow", (Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness) by Michelle Alexander. 

(1) The Innocence Project: Eric Glisson. I was so moved by this young man's determination to prove his innocence when no one would help him, that I checked out this YouTube clip on his journey to freedom and going against the penal system.

(2) The Legacy Museum: Focuses on African American from Enslavement to Mass Incarceration

https://museumandmemorial.eji.org/museum

This museum's, located in Montgomery Alabama, content crystalizes our plight of slavery past and present. It is a must see and visit!

The proceeds from your generous gift will be divided unless you wish to designate where you want your donation allocated. I want to establish a GoFundMe page but ran out of time. This way is much easier for me. If you would like a tax-deductible receipt from the organization, note it with your donation.
