Originally from the south suburbs of Chicago, Kellee Terrell has spent the last eight years analyzing how the intersections of race, class, gender, and sexuality have shaped not only her life, but also the lives of all women and men in the United States.

Ms. Terrell writes mostly about HIV/AIDS, pop culture, social justice, racism, health, gender and politics. But admits, that for money, she will write about anything.

She received a  M.A. in African-American Studies from Columbia Universityand a B.A. in African-American Studies and minor degrees in Women’s Studies and Political Science from the University of Michigan.

The Brooklyn-based journalist, editor and public speaker’s work has appeared in Essence, Real Health: The Guide To Black Wellness , POZ , The Advocate, XXL: Hip Hop Soul, AOL Black Voices, The Body, and The Grio.

    Thanks for writing such an inciteful, humorous, and entertaining blog. I came across your site from Rod 2.0 and now it will be one of my regular reads.

    Kellee I love your blog! Congrats to you on your Essence articles.


  19. Yonkers represent here, a few blocks outside the Bronx. Found you randomly. Dig your style. Obama ain’t the Messiah though, he talks about bombing everything to shit basically same way McCain does, if not more (Pakistan). Neither candidate is an agent of change but rather a symptom of the same ol’ bitch. Still, I like your style. Whether I agree doesn’t matter. Agreement never matters. Harmony matters.
