Fifty Years Ago TODAY, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 Changed the Country for African Americans

In American History, today is a very special day. Fifty years ago, President Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964 that transformed the treatment of African Americans in schools, buses, housing, libraries, movie theaters, department stores, voting booths, and so much more. This act abolished discrimination of a segregated America that was a LONG TIME coming.

I hope that we can remember its significance and its legacy this 4th of July weekend (and in the voting booths this November)!

Miami Gemini Trio Meeting at Michael's Food & Drink

By chance, I indulged my curiousity of my new work neighborhood and visited some stores in Miami’s Design District – Prada, Louis Vuitton, and finally Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink. It turns out that the bar manager named Jason, myself, and a patron named Toni, are all Geminis, celebrating birthdays days apart from each other. #GeminiForever
