Scott trains women ranging in age from 14-70 in boxing. The certified USA boxing coach founded the Womenâ€™s World of Boxing, Inc., a for-profit organization designed to provide women with a safe, comfortable and uplifting environment to learn the sport.

Last week I was invited to attend Kitty Bradshaw’s Meet ‘N Tweet, which was a gifting suite where bloggers were treated to product galore and got to mingle with other bloggers and brands.

Dashira Harris, my friend and fellow journalist, is producing an informative documentary entitled Negro, which is about Latino identity. So far she has traveled to Colombia, Brazil and the Dominican Republic but she has a long road ahead of her in order to complete her journey exploring this complex subject matter. However, in the meantime check out part one where she interviews various people (shouts to Dee Vazquez at 12:11) about racism, colorism and the social consequences of colonialism on the Latino community. Dash drops some serious historical facts about the connection between the African slave trade and the development Read the rest of this entry »
