I currently reside in Buffalo, NY where I am dedicated to the elevation of Black Women and their Children. Currently my "Job" is as the Climate Justice Organizer for PUSH Buffalo.
I am deeply involved in Environmental and Climate Justice work and the building of a Sacred Temple for the Divine Afrikan Feminine. Over the course of my life i have heard the "Voice of Goddess" in my head and heart. It was in late 2008 that i heard Mother’s voice and heeded HER call, to "Preach HER names" as well as build a temple for HER and HER children. I have done that work consistently and we are working on building this temple. A crucial part of the work has been the several years of work by High Priestess Meri-T Seshat, our Priestess who guided some of the more esoteric thought behind Black Goddess Consciousness. Priestess Seshat is not only the first Priestess ordained under Udja Temple thus carrying the name of Baako (First Born). Seshat was the one who told me of the need to codify the term Black Goddess Consciousness an important step to making Udja Temple something to be honored and respected. Although the High Priestess has departed on gracious terms from Udja Temple her work continues as Ua Mer Sacred Water Community.
Our collective Priestesshood (Priests) are coming forward to assist in the building of this Temple and to provide several services. Service for Black, Brown and Indigenous Women and their children.
Udja Temple is working to build A physical place of honor, praise and worship of the Sacred Feminine through our teaching called Black Goddess Consciousness you can support by Donating at the link below.
