I’m excited to announce that starting next week, Wendi Muse will be joining Latoya as a special correspondent for Racialicious! She’ll be writing one post per week for the blog, and will also be helping me with some odds and ends behind the scenes. Here’s more about her:
Wendi was born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee and moved to New York to attend NYU’s Gallatin School for Individualized Study. At NYU she was a Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Scholar and did a concentration on “legal and cultural studies of oppressed and marginalized people,” which she sometimes abbreviates on her resume as “cross-cultural analysis” as to not confuse employers or the weak of (bleeding) heart. She is presently working at a law firm by day, but moonlights as the associate editor and “current events” contributor for The Coup Magazine (check out both the magazine and the blog) Wendi plans to attend grad school in the fall of 2008, but until then, she’s killing time blogging about -ISMs, dancing up a storm, and studying Portuguese.
Please join me in welcoming her to the Racialicious team!
