About three weeks before the election, I was watching the Presidential debate coverage with my six year-old cousin and his mom. TJ, my baby cuz as I call him, is wise beyond his years and I take a small part in raising him. I still have the video that I recorded almost four years ago when he proudly told me the names of the President and First Lady.

Online social spaces have allowed me to access a world beyond the rural area of South Carolina that I once called home. I was able to create new and innovative concepts for my area and collaborate with like-minded and diverse individuals. However, it was social spaces like Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter that allowed me to see the broader scope of ideas and niche concepts that brands and businesses were creating miles away. My friends would define my personality as being obsessive.
Recently, I was invited to attend the red carpet premiere screening of WE tv’s new season of “Match Made in Heaven,” executive produced by Sherri Shepherd and starring Stevie Baggs. The screening took place at the Woodruff Arts Center in Downtown Atlanta. There, I was able to converse with Baggs and Shepherd about the new season of Match Made In Heaven.

Carrying your past along with your future is not actually bad. 26 years old artist, Ment Nelson from Hampton, South Carolina can tell you about using things from your past and making it great for your future. Recently in his first collection, Fishing With Grandma, Ment featured scenes from his childhood that he believes will shed light on his culture and give hope to those of the Gullah culture. The Gullah culture was created when the Africans were kidnapped from Africa and had to adjust to the American way of living, while staying true to their own culture. “My collection of art came from a “Soulful-place”, said Ment. He states that it came from a creative place. Two quotes he enjoys, and helps him to embrace his creative side are from Erykah Badu and Dr. T.D. Jakes.
Creativity is the absence of fear. -Erykah Badu
