Insight for healthy relationships

Insight for healthy relationships

From the moment I agreed to write this column as I shook Al McFarlane’s hand at the Kente Summit this past weekend, I was committed to write about healthy relationships. I am convinced that healthy relationships build healthy families and healthy families build healthy communities.  I am keenly aware that our community is suffering from broken and dysfunctional relationships, and I too am concerned about the state of the Black family. I also believe that despite all of these obstacles, we are all empowered to do something about it. On this past Saturday, despite the snow, I headed out to the Kente Summit with this mission in mind.

Gone to Ghana: Talking turkey

Gone to Ghana: Talking turkey

Last week, it was Thanksgiving in the States and millions of families and friends joined around their feasting tables to give thanks for each other and their many other countless blessings. I on the other hand, for the first time in my life, was without Thanksgiving. Just in case you were unaware, Thanksgiving is a holiday unique to the United States and Canada, as Farmers’ Day is unique to Ghana. Therefore, there are no great holiday sales, or fighting for the last turkey at the grocery store. I couldn’t even find a non-baked cheesecake- one Thanksgiving tradition I was bent on keeping, until I realized it didn’t exist here. I don’t know why I thought Sara Lee had made her debut in Ghana, but every girl has a right to dream; especially when it involves graham cracker crust and lemon infused cream cheese.

Holiday travel tips from MSP Airport

Whether you are flying home to be with family, meeting the future in-laws or just getting away for a few days, be sure to get to the airport early for your flight. While the number of travelers this year will be only slightly higher than last, it’s always a good idea during the holidays to plan ahead and arrive early at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP).

“Travelers departing Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport this holiday season should arrive at the airport at least two hours prior to their departure,” said Jeff Hamiel, executive director of the Metropolitan Airports Commission, which owns and operates MSP. “Mornings can be especially busy.”

When I lived in America, Africa was everywhere I went. Many of my friends were second generation African, so it was not unusual to see them wearing bright color fabrics in modern styles. The homes I visited, often had some sort of African statue or art, reminding the owner that, although they may be in America now, their roots were from the Motherland. And someone was always taking a trip to Africa or talking about how wonderful it would be to visit the continent one day.

Gone to Ghana: Comfort, the enemy of success

For three weeks, as some people saw it, I became comfortable in Ghana. I managed to land a job with the United States government overseas, and, of course, for most people, this was the determining factor in my success story.  However, in my opinion, it was more like a nail in a coffin.
