Dr. Venus, a Stanford University graduate and former tenure professor, discusses on her tour that the black female body is a “social non-being.” She talks about how since the 1600s when taxes and laws were created to justify the right to black women’s bodies as the labor-producing workforce for the American Dream. Dr. Venus is on the last leg of her national tour based on her best-selling book, The Black Woman Millionaire: A Revolutionary Act That Defies Impossible.

"Success in Celibacy" is a transparent guide to having NO Sex in the City, on purpose...well at least for right now.
Author, Shea Scott Edwards, journeys from sex-to-celibacy and debunks various myths that the celibate lifestyle is one of sufferable misery or an unrealistic and unattainable achievement. Instead of sacrificing your body to societal standards and physical urges, give God a chance through sexual obedience and watch how He rewards your relationships and enhances your life through miraculous gifts and blessings.
This book of buried treasure will tear down generational barriers and put an end to personal guilt and shame. By opening up the dialogue of sex and sexuality between international communities and churches, God's purpose for celibacy is championed in an effort to ignite us with power and purpose. Experience the heart of God and His desire for His children to live purpose-filled, liberated and empowered lives!
For more than 20 years Donya Williams has researched her roots in Edgefield, South Carolina. As she researched her family, there came a time when sharing her genealogy discoveries was a must. She did so through a blog on WordPress, which was followed by family members, other researchers, and friends. As her knowledge of the genealogical field grew, so did her need to expose others to what she had learned. Donya became the administrator of two genealogical Facebook groups, and created a Facebook page that would share the information she found through researching with others.
After years of finding and connecting her family to each other, the stories from her blog - and many more - have been compiled and told in a way that only Donya can do in the new book

Style Stamped is a site created to highlight fashion and style that is so good it must be “Stamped!” We put a Stamp on what is right, stylish, fashionable, and worthy of discussion.
At Style Stamped, style means individualism and originality. It means going beyond the mannequins in the store and the suggestions of the runway and grasping the feelings and emotions that are inside of yourself for inspiration. It means, this is who I am, this is the real me. We represent individualistic style.
Our motto is: “Decide who you are, then dress the way you want to live.” Who are you? Style comes naturally when you can answer that question confidently. Having trouble finding your own style? Contact us. If you have figured out who you are but are having a little trouble defining your style, we can help guide you here.
