Welcome!

Welcome to my site where I mix a little sacred and a little secular, with a whole lot of love! If you love hip-hop culture, activism, holistic livin', and empowering stories, make yourself comfortable because you're definitely in the right place. My love for storytelling and connection is best reflected in my journalism background--always looking for the 'story within the story' in the hopes of getting to know interviewees better. I'm a writer, music connoisseur, Black culture enthusiast, and New Yorker (by way of California☀️😉). 

Sign up for my #FreeFlowFriday newsletters to recieve uplifting monthly reflections on hip-hop and theology!

#FreeFlowFriday Spotlight

At its core, #FreeFlowFriday draws parallels between the secular and the sacred. Using hip-hop music as the backdrop, Bridget explores theological principles, race relations, and intergenerational trauma/resiliency within communities of color.

ABOUT BRIDGET


Bridget is a lover of womanism, hip-hop culture, and all things storytelling. Bridget’s passion for Black curriculum and hip-hop studies was ignited while earning her B.A. in Communications Studies.


While ample amounts of her past research centered around examining hip-hop music as a social/racial commentary through the work of the rapper turned political figure Tupac Shakur, her most recent work deals primarily in studying womanism, liberation theology, and intergenerational trauma in the Black community. Bridget now holds a Master's Degree from Columbia University in Psychology and Religion.
