Princess and the Frog is a Black history fail—Onicia Update

Hey friends,

To celebrate completing Kalani the Fisherman, an original Caribbean folklore that I wrote for the 4C Foundation (Foresee Foundation), I’m revisiting La Diablesse.

I left St. Maarten hoping to write Caribbean stories for and staring Caribbean people. Projects like these remind me that I’m on the right track. Happy Black History Month!

Fun fact: Kalani is my super cute nephew. I love putting my people in my stories. <3

Princess and the Frog was a struggle—Just Being Funny

As a blaque woman, I’m tired of us having to play captain save a scrub. Yeah, yeah, they world likes to pretend like we’re unworthy bottomfeeders with a thunder load of children looking for a handout, but that ain’t true. Black women stay holding this raggedy world together, and we deserved more than a *checks notes* no-‘count philandering lazy bump on a log for a prince. And das fax. Big fax. KEEP READING

Last month, I wrote and performed the tale of Lajabless for the Forsee Foundation. If you’re into ghost stories, then you need to hear about the Caribbean she-devil who entices drunk men and turns them into human sacrifices. You can listen to Lajabless and other Caribbean folklore on the Forsee Foundation’s SoundCloud

Just Being Funny: A sketchy dinner date with a broke sugar daddy
My wallet was stolen hours after I’d withdrawn thousands of Pesos from my bank account. We had just enough to cover our hostel costs until our trip was over. We needed money, and we needed it— Knock. Knock. Yuck, it was that toad-face, middle-aged guy who kept asking us out. ¡¡Lightbulb!! Talk about knock and […]

Just Being Funny: Mr. Greedy ate my regurgitated steak
Bullfighting is like a local gang challenging you to a one-on-one fistfight, but when you show up, they got a big ole knife and a clownin’ homie for backup. After witnessing the absolutely appalling murder of innocent bulls, I vowed never to eat steak that I knew personally. The murder? Horrific. The steak? Terrific! Before […]
