Where there is no struggle, there is no strength. – Oprah Winfrey



My name is Monica Thorpe: Atlien, blog writer, journalism major, sister and all-around cool peron.

My writing has been featured in Creative Loafing and The Atlanta Voice Newspaper. But I’ve worked/interned for CNN, UPSCALE Magazine & VIBE Magazine.

My site focuses on featuring Black businesses and products. I am here to build a better relationship with black consumers by creating better communication.

I feel as though after the killings of both our black men and women, its time to stand up and show how important the the black dollar is. Why spend money at well known businesses that half the time down cater to blacks but will speak when they see that Visa card swipe.

My site will help you find local and national Black businesses and products to where you can spend your hard earned money.

Find more about me through my blog post.

  1. Hi Monica, thanks for following my blog Maries411 on Word Press. I enjoyed reading your stories on your blog. Where can I purchase the polish you mentioned ? Also, you said you wrote for the Atlanta Voice Newspaper; my husband(R.D.W. Jackson) works there he’s in sales.
