Greetings Family and Friends,
We’re back again with another exciting issue of indigoLife™ Magazine. We hope you are finding our stories of great interest and relevance to your everyday lifestyle. Above all, we hope you can appreciate that we have been consistent in our use of an inclusive voice to project a community building message through our discovery and sharing of narratives often not highlighted in mainstream media circuits.
We are young in our existence, yet making great strides as a new outlet of mass communications. New writers; new content; new Black Life Treasures; new communities; new readers—our progressive growth is undeniable. Added to this edition, for example, are two contributors, who bring vast expertise in their respective fields: Carolyn Shelton, an Etiquette Professional and Cajun Chef; and Colette Jenkins as Expert Make-up Artist. Our readers can expect to see their faces as regular contributors in our publication.
Having State Representative Patty Bentley serve as our political contributor helps to ensure that our Georgia readers are kept abreast on what is happening in the Georgia State Legislature. Beyond this, citizens are advised on major issues facing the state of Georgia and how to connect with Legislators representing their districts. Attorney Deryl Hunt has presented on a number of topics, ranging from legal matters to inclusion to community building to conflict resolution to his current discussion on technology that will help answer questions our readers may have about the latest electronic and digital gadgets. Chef John Harvey has made sure our readers enjoy delectable delightful recipes concocted from his kitchen. This issue, he brings us a dish suited for the spring of the year: fried brown rice served with Asian Cucumber Salad.
In celebration of women’s history month, this issue features women in our present-day society. These are our Black Life Treasures who are making huge impact on their families, their communities, the nation, and the world, at large. They have in common efforts to improve the quality of life of others both now and for generations to come. Journey with us as we peek into their lives, and see the brave bold steps they have taken to lead in community building, education, health & wellness, and economic development projects while breaking down barriers of race and gender. As always, it has been my pleasure spending time with you, my friend. And remember, I’m counting on you to stay In My Korner™.
