Saturday Soul: Stephanie McKay

From The Cocoa Lounge

Saturday Soul: Stephanie McKay

If the arts were a sport, Stephanie McKay would be something like a heptathlete. The Bronx native studied dance at the prestigious Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater; contributed her vocals to artists ranging from The Brooklyn Funk Essentials, Talib Kweli and Mos Def to Tricky; and as if that weren't enough, she's even played lead guitar in Kelis' band.

Please enjoy Stephanie McKay's music video, "Take Me Over:"

Dear Cocoa Lounge,

I am contacting you regarding a blog survey I am conducting. I am a Ph.D. candidate in Mass Communication at Penn State and my dissertation project consists of a survey that looks at women bloggers’ perceived motivations for and effects of their blogging.

I am sending the survey to a number of bloggers, and I would like to invite you to participate in it as well. Participation should take approximately 15 minutes of your time. I would appreciate it tremendously if you would be willing to take the survey. If you decide to do so, please follow the link below:

I would be very happy to share the findings of my study with you once it is completed!

If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to contact me!

Thank you in advance,

Carmen

Hello Cocoa

I’m a fellow black blogger who took so much crap for publishing an article here on Imus’ “nappy-headed hos” remark that I felt like a ghetto snitch. Here’s one line from that article:

"if truth be told, this outrage is more about black hypocrisy and self-loathing than about Imus’ racism."

But a dear friend referred me to your post on the controversy for consolation, which, I'm pleased to inform you, I found on beautiful display.

Thank you.
