Single Sisters Speak Out

The Modern Life of the Single Sister

Who We Are October 9, 2008

Jaclynn (Pookie Mae and Tootie Lynn) <–cause that’s what my Mama calls me 🙂

I am incredibly smart. I am incredibly stupid. Without fail I will contradict myself. The daughter of a college educated former social worker and a former Marine who don’t always make the right decisions. I’m imperfect just like those I sprang from. I am the granddaughter of a coal miner and just like him I can be quiet and introspective. Yep I’m the coal miner’s granddaughter and like his wife, I can rule with a shade of cool so blue it will chill you to your spine but like her, I am compassionate, spunky and spontaneous. I am the granddaughter of a sensitive but strong stay at home Mom of three and a conscientious laborer.

I am black, that’s what I write but I know I am composed of more than that.

I am a daughter, niece, cousin, friend and most of all a child of God.

My complexities, like my mistakes are innumerable.

In the words of my own father, I am a “fortunate fool”.


These are just my interpretations of the situation.




Anissa aka Cuzzo

I cannot describe myself fully because I am different things to different people. A mother to a one year old boy. On earth 25 years. My parents are of Caribbean descent. My mother’s only child but one of eight children from my dad. New York native but currently residing in Philly. I love to laugh. I say whatever is on my mind. So far my soundtrack is a little Jill Scott, The Real Thing: Words and Sounds Vol. 3

Whatever it is

Let it be 😉

I always have an issue describing myself. I think I represent the double consciousness that DuBois wrote about. I am an elitist yet I’m down to earth and a bit ghetto. I am eloquent yet I really do enjoy cursing. I am consistently inconsistent. I am the most emotional rational person you will ever meet. I am probably who your parents will love.

More to come soon!

    I am a woman who believes that this world can present amazing gifts. I believe in miracles and maybe the biggest miracle in my life can be the meeting with a special person who will become a part of me. I am an open-minded person and communication with people is my famous interest. In this life I value every single moment. Good moments, and even bad ones, as they give more soul power and wisdom. Perhaps there is a person is this world who can share my ideas with me. I am looking forward to meeting this person.

    Hi Sisters!
    I am Nkoli, residing in Nigeria. I am trying to start a black women only magazine and I was looking for some great articles when I came across your: HOW TO LOVE A BLACK MAN. To say the least, it is fascinating.
    Please I will like to have a permission from you to reprint it on my magazine and of course the credit with be yours and all protocols must be followed.
    We are of little or no budget yet, but we are determined.
    We will love to send you a copy of the magazine as soon as it comes out if you may send us a mailing address.
    Please, we hope you may give us permissions to publish some other of your articles (of course we must let you know before we do anything).
    Keep up the good work.
    ISIS Magazine
