Kippah-ed While Black: KWB- A Monthly Opinion Column in the Forward

If you don’t know, now you know I’m writing a monthly column for The Forward entitled, Kippah-ed While Black. It’s intention is to draw attention to issues in the lives of African American Jews, through my lens. The first piece is on the unfortunate use of racial epithets among some Jews and the power of those words and how we can deflate them. 

The second piece is about my role as a Hebrew school teacher, one who had to make Black history everyday, just by existing. As Kippah-ed While Black continues, it will keep probing tough topics in Black Jewish relations from the perspective of African American Jews. I invite you to read both pieces and check back into the Forward each month for other installments. 

And yes, eventually we will talk about food. 🙂  I do want to talk about to lifting people up, but the 

Gotta get back to work. I have a recipe I’m developing that will change to your Passover game 🙂
