“Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today, to get through this thing called life.” If you aren’t familiar, these are some of the most famous lyrics from Minneapolis legend and entertainer Prince.

I recently visited for a few days to get a firsthand look at all of the area’s hotspots, and now I want to put you on so that you are well equipped when you decide to pop in for yourself.

The Fugees are hard at work on a new album, their first together in 28 years, and Wyclef Jean predicts that the music “will not be pretty.” “We just create tunes, things that are relevant to the time—we are going through a tough time, right? So I’m sure the music is not gonna be pretty,” Jean told EBONY after his electrifying performance at the 70th St. John Celebration in St. John, one of three territories that comprise the U.S. Virgin Islands. Jean added that the Fugees make “timeless music.” Indeed, their 1996 seven-time-platinum album The Score, featuring “Fug-Gee-La” and their remix of R ..read more

Let’s Get Away: The Top Cruises for a Much-Needed Summer Trip

When it comes to cruising, either you love it or you don’t. For most Black travelers, booking a sailing is the easiest way to get more bang for your buck. Not only are your meals included—and often unlimited and available all day—but you are usually able to check off multiple countries or cities within your voyage. Not to mention, it’s an easy way to get the entire family traveling or even those friends who haven’t secured their passport yet, as the average cruise brand allows you to travel with your birth certificate and state issued ID in lieu of a passport if needed. Now, as an avid travel ..read more

Beyoncé once told us that the best summer escapes are those “where the water’s so blue.” So I listened and hopped on a flight down to sunny Antigua to check out it’s all-new Royalton Chic resort. A dual island territory—technically known as Antigua and Barbuda—the small Caribbean destination sits close to spots like St. Lucia, Montserrat and Dominica. And yes, the water was very blue. After a short 20-minute taxi ride from the island’s airport, I arrived to the property and was greeted by a cold towel and refreshing drink made of local fruit juices. As a VIP guest, I was a part of the Diamond ..read more

Las Vegas may be known for casinos, star-studded concerts and shows, as well as its party scene. But, real Sin City connoisseurs also know that the culinary and bar scenes are the real winners of the Nevada city. If there’s ever been a restaurant you’ve wanted to get into in any other city globally, you may be surprised to know that Vegas likely has its own location and you may not have to wait years just to get a table. We recently jetted out west to spend a little time in the city. And while it certainly was hot during our visit—we’re talking well into the 100s—we were cooled off by plenty ..read more

Truth-Telling Still Has Its Place in 2024. Bryan Stevenson and the Equal Justice Initiative Continues to Cement This Fact in Stone

History is one of the greatest gifts human beings have at their disposal. History teaches, informs and negates falsities and efforts of erasure. If you identify as a Black American with direct generational ties to the American South, you are likely more aware than most of how important history is. Black folks with family lineages majorly connected to the United States’ contributions to the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade are no stranger to hearing that they have no history. The Equal Justice Initiative (EJI) has largely combatted this narrative with the formation of their Legacy Sites. These sites ..read more
