Ray Washington Should Remain as Sheriff By Michigan Chronicle Editorial Board Wayne County Sheriff Ray Washington has been on the job for more than a year and stepped into the position after his predecessor’s untimely death to COVID-19. In his endorsement editorial board interview with Michigan Chronicle, Sheriff Washington discusses his readiness for the role following the late Sheriff Benny Napoleon’s death, his career experience, combating crime, addressing jail staffing issues, and bridging relations with the Black community and law enforcement. Washington oversees three jail facilities, Road Patrol, a Marine Unit, a Mounted Unit, and other law enforcement activities in collaboration with the 43 cities and townships in his jurisdiction which covers 673 square miles.

Roe v. Wade Overturned,

Washington believes this moment of his career has come full circle. He began his law enforcement journey as a recruiter for the Wayne County Sheriff’s department at 23-years-old.

Supreme Court Removes 50 Years of Abortion Rights

By Sherri Kolade In a 6-3 decision, the Supreme Court voted to overturn the decades-old Roe v. Wade ruling that created the constitutional right to abort in the U.S. in 1973, NBC News reported. The court’s decision created a ripple effect of protests and outpouring of mixed reactions that is also anticipated to give individual states the ability to set their own abortion laws “without concern of running afoul of Roe,” according to the article, which for nearly 50 years had granted abortions during the first two trimesters of pregnancy. Nearly half the states are anticipated to outlaw or “severely restrict abortion” due to the Supreme Court’s decision, which is tied to a highly restrictive and recent Mississippi abortion law, according to the article. The court’s only three liberal justices filed a dissenting opinion to the decision. “We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled,” Justice Samuel Alito wrote in the article. Attorney General Dana Nessel today issued the following statement regarding the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling on the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case, which has now overturned Roe v. Wade, the seminal 1973 court decision that granted women in all 50 states the constitutional right to control their own reproductive health choices. As a result of today’s decision, the legality of abortion care will now be left up to each state to decide. “Although we knew this was coming after the leak of Justice Alito’s draft decision, it doesn’t make it any less shocking or unnerving that Americans will lose a fundamental right they’ve had for nearly my entire lifetime,” Nessel said in a statement. “To millions of Michiganders, this isn’t some abstract fight about social issues. These are kitchen table concerns that impact our ability to be economically stable, continue our education, and plan for our future. We all have our own personal beliefs about abortion; the decision of whether to terminate a pregnancy is a deeply personal one that should not be controlled by the state. There’s a big difference between

He signed up to become a member of the Detroit Police department in 1978, however layoffs at time kept him away from the agency’s force. He was hired in 1983 where Ray Washington joined the jail division of the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office. Before-long, Washington was called back by DPD in 1985 and after 14 years would realize the necessity to be elevated within the department. “I was having so much fun protecting and serving as a police officer, what stood out was I needed to start getting promoted so I could be in a position to lead,” said Sherriff Washington. He has enjoyed a wide-ranging field of work, including as a patrol officer, investigative officer which included the Narcotics, Violent Crimes, Traffic Enforcement and Gang Squad divisions. He would be promoted to sergeant in 1999 and then lieutenant in 2001 after studying and testing for the positions and later serving in an executive role leading whole units of a department. He says he always wanted to be a public servant and believes his experience has prepared him to take on the next full term as Wayne County Sheriff. “I prepared myself to be a leader and I think these advancements in DPD and in the Sherriff’s office is what makes we ready to fulfill this duty.” Washington comes into the positions after an emotional blow to the agency following the death of Sheriff Napoleon. It was shocking and sad news for the office and area

adhering to your own personal beliefs and forcing others to abide by them.” Nessel pointed out that Michigan is among the 26 states with an existing law on the books, dating back to 1931, that criminalizes abortion and makes it a felony to perform one, and has no exceptions for rape or incest. The law could be interpreted so that anyone, from the receptionist who schedules the appointment to a billing administrator, could be charged with “aiding and abetting” the termination of a pregnancy. That would have a chilling effect on all reproductive care in Michigan, she added, putting women at risk of injury and death. “As I’ve repeatedly made clear, I will not use the resources of the Attorney General’s office to enforce an unconstitutional law that will allow the state into our bedrooms and doctor’s appointments, interfering with our fundamental reproductive rights,” Nessel said. “As long as I’m in office, I will not prosecute women, girls, or their doctors for seeking or providing abortion services. Nor will my staff seek licensure discipline against medical professionals who safely perform these procedures.” Nessel’s opponent for attorney general, Republican Matt DePerno, has said repeatedly that he’s against abortion even in cases of rape, incest, or a dire medical emergency – no exceptions. “My opponent even claims there is no such thing as a life-saving medical procedure that would require terminating a pregnancy – an idea that doctors, nurses, and anyone who has experienced an ectopic pregnancy knows is unequivocally false. And if DePerno wins the November election, he will have the authority to charge people in every county across Michigan.” Nessel said the overturning of Roe will have additional negative consequences. “I’ve been putting domestic violence advocates on high alert: expect to see an increase in partner assault cases, including homicides, because of Roe being overturned. If women can’t exercise their right to terminate a pregnancy, that will leave them anchored to their abusers for the rest of their lives. Being forced to carry a fetus would cause catastrophic harm to women al-

ready in a precarious situation.” Nessel urged voters who want to maintain their reproductive rights to make their voices heard at the ballot box in November. Many Black advocacy groups assert that the SCOTUS decision is closely linked with race. Gynecological experiments and forced sterilizations have historically impacted Black women in the U.S., per ABC News. “We all need to be able to determine how many children we’re going to have if we’re going to have children. We all have a human right to make decisions about our bodies,” said Toni Bond, the scholar who coined the phrase “reproductive justice” in the 90s to separate the concerns of Black women from those of white feminists. Black women are also more likely to die from childbirth than white women. A federal study reports that college-educated Black women are five times more likely to die from pregnancy than white women who went to college. The access and expense of health care and police brutality are other factors that especially concern Black women. Gov. Gretchen Whitmer also made a statement on the ruling. “Today is a sad day for America as an unelected group of conservative judges act squarely against the will of the people and medical expertise. We can all sense the despair that tens of millions of Americans—our neighbors, family members and friends—are feeling right now. However we personally feel about abortion, health—not politics— should drive important medical decisions,” Whitmer said. “I will fight like hell to protect every Michiganders’ right to make decisions about their own body with the advice of a medical professional they trust. I will not give in or give up for my kids, your kids, and the future of our great state.” Lt. Gov. Gilchrist also released a statement. “Today is a tragic day for Americans and Michiganders.

Ray Washington From page A-1 law enforcement. Washington serving as Deputy Sherriff felt the stunning loss of his dear friend and colleague, but also understood importance of stepping up to lead during what was a difficult time for the agency. As someone who vacationed with my brother, someone who enjoyed dinner dates with our families, it was very emotional. While I was grieving, I still had to jump in and continue his legacy while I built my own.” From the beginning, the job included building up morale amongst sheriff deputies and tackling the day-to-day operations such as COVID-19, jail staffing issues, etc. “While we were grieving, I brought my team in and said we got to do this as a team. I don’t work on a island to do this myself. I showed my team who I am as a leader but importance of working to together because public safety is paramount.” As it relates to public safety, we wanted to understand his position on combating violent crime and working with area

a large population from casting ballots. Among them are strict voter laws in many Republican-led states, deceptive practices like robocalls; early voting cuts; and voter intimidation. “Black voters did our share in 2020,” Arnwine remarked. “Ninety-three percent of all eligible Black voters registered in Georgia. Yet, in the 2021 Georgia Senate run-off, 93 percent of all registered Black voters turned out. That’s why people don’t understand where the real power is.” Along with NNPA President and CEO Dr. Benjamin F. Chavis Jr., Richards, NNPA Executive Board members Janis Ware, Fran Farrer, Cheryl Smith, and Jackie Hampton, Arnwine and Jones announced that the groups would utilize a multivehicle “votercade” to get out the vote. They said individuals riding in new and COVIDsafe tour buses would hit swing states ahead of the November elections to register and mobilize GOTV for 10 million new Black voters. Chavis said artists from Roc Nation, the company run by hip-hop magnate and business mogul Jay-Z, would accompany the votercade in some cities. Music superstar Stephanie Mills also pledged to “get on the bus with the Black Press and the Transformative Justice Coalition.” Chavis said he’s convinced other celebrities

law enforcement agencies to do so. He touted the relationship between his office and others alike aren’t just partnerships he will produce if elected to full term, but they are relationships that are already being fostered. “Our office and Detroit Police are doing things already on the weekend in downtown and in the neighborhoods to help combat violent crime. We have met and planned to get things done as a team. There are staffing shortages in law enforcement across the country so we understand we can’t do things alone, we must partner.” Washington took the time to tout his office’s program, ‘Sheriff Community Outreach Urban Team, (SCOUT)’ which “goes into neighborhoods and handle quality of life issues (such as drag racing, loiters) while Detroit Police handles the assault of crimes which must be handled”. Simply put, locking people up for their alleged and convicted crimes is a part of his job. But, in an environment of staff shortages, this work hasn’t been simple. We

will also join the national GOTV campaign. “The first form of voter suppression is self-suppression,” Dr. Chavis asserted. “This last primary election showed that some of us were keeping ourselves from voting. There are 55 million unregistered Americans eligible to vote, and 10 million are African Americans,” Chavis continued. “What if those 10 million were registered? We wouldn’t have worried about Donald Trump or the craziness of what the U.S. Supreme Court is doing now. Elections have consequences. The overturned Roe v. Wade, the overturned gun laws – are consequences of elections.” With more than 235 African American-owned newspapers and media companies serving as members, the NNPA represents the Black Press of America. The Transformative Justice Coalition’s mission includes the systematic change that achieves racial justice, gender, economic and social justice, and human rights through public education and engagement initiatives that attend equally to hearts and minds as well as the social systems and structure in which they exist. Further, the coalition dedicates itself to informed civic engagement and equal voting rights for everyone. They use a voting rights map of shame to inform the public of threats to America’s democracy, how to protect their voting rights, and steps to take to ensure the ability to cast a ballot

back and law enforcement has to do that all over. People are disenchanted by the things they’ve seen. Law enforcement gets it wrong sometimes and we have to call wrong, wrong and right, right.”

“We’ve come up with ne ways to engage, … young people get to come up and scan a QR code with their phones to access the application and now they fill-out a two-page document to get their careers started in law enforcement.”

Sheriff Washington touted his office’s inaugural Citizens Academy, a five-week tutorial for citizens to understand everything about the department and then become ambassadors for the Sheriff’s office.

Washington said the agency once had a 12page document for applicants to fill-out, which “didn’t make sense” to him, understanding he need to get candidates on-board quicker. “If the pandemic taught us one thing, you can pivot and get things done is an more efficient manner”. Amid the national unrest following the police involved death of George Floyd and the increased lack of trust toward police by the Black community, we wanted to understand his perspective as a Black man working in the law enforcement profession. “As a Black man, this is serious to me. I think we have to earn the trust and make sure it’s counted. The organization also seeks the restoration of voting rights for ex-felons. “[Anti-voting rights organizations and individuals] have trained 10,000 people to be poll disruptors to go to only Black polling sites,” Arnwine declared. “They’re not sending them to white polling sites, and if you watched the [Jan. 6] hearings, this is a concentrated effort to disempower Black voters,” she stated. According to Davis, more than 18 million people are eligible to vote but don’t know it. “They are the felony disenfranchised,” Davis insisted. “They are confused. It’s intentionally done in various states. For example, in some states, you never lose your right to vote, and in some states, you can run for office if you’re incarcerated,” he explained. The votercade would help educate voters and explain what’s legal, among other things. “We’re calling on all 235 NNPA members,” Dr. Chavis encouraged. “That call and response from our brothers and sisters are vital. It’s movement time, it is time Get-Out-The-Vote” he declared further. “With the Transformative Justice Coalition, the NNPA will help move our people forward to get out this vote. In 2022, we will make the critical difference in the midterm elections in terms of increasing Black voter participation throughout the country.”

“As a society, we teach our young people how to drive, but they also need to know the law during a traffic stop.” Washington believes this program and inside perspective will help the community understand a law enforcement officer’s judgement and help build better relations. Sheriff Washington’s readiness to step in and lead during such a difficult time, his extensive career experience, and bridging relations with community and law enforcement are reasons why we believe Washington has met and exceeded the bar to be elected a full term and continue as Sheriff of Wayne County, Michigan. Sheriff Washington is a proud graduate of the public school system and a graduate of Cleary University, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice Management. He is also a graduate of Eastern Michigan University’s School of Police Staff and Command. Graduating from the National FBI Academy Session 248, Sheriff Washington has also earned an Executive Certificate at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School in State and Local Government.

tutional right, a group of conservative judges we did not elect have stripped access to reproductive healthcare from tens of millions of Americans. We can all sense the hopelessness and despair that our neighbors, family, and friends are feeling right now,” he said. “However we personally feel about abortion, health, not politics, should drive major medical decisions. Governor Whitmer and I are committed to ensuring this constitutional right is protected here in Michigan.” The governor filed a lawsuit and asked the Michigan Supreme Court to recognize a constitutional right to an abortion under the Due Process Clause of the Michigan Constitution. It also asks the court to stop enforcement of the 1931 Michigan abortion ban. The abortion ban violates Michigan’s due process clause, which provides a right to privacy and bodily autonomy that is violated by the state’s near-total criminal ban of abortion. It also violates Michigan’s Equal Protection Clause due to the way the ban denies women equal rights because the law was adopted to reinforce antiquated notions of the proper role for women in society. Governor Whitmer’s executive directive instructs departments not to cooperate with or

assist authorities of any state in any investigation or proceeding against anyone for obtaining, providing, or assisting someone else to obtain or provide reproductive healthcare that is legal where the health care is provided. State of Michigan departments and agencies must also identify and assess potential opportunities to increase protections for reproductive health care, consistent with applicable law. They must detail how they can increase choices available to protect mental, physical, and reproductive health; safeguard the privacy of individuals seeking care; and assure the safety of reproductive healthcare providers. Additionally, departments and agencies that communicate directly with the public on reproductive issues must provide accessible, comprehensive information about the current cost and availability of reproductive care and increase public awareness about the availability and safety of contraception. According to a poll from January 2022, 67.3% of Michiganders support Roe and 65.7% support repealing Michigan’s 1931 trigger ban on abortion. Over 77%, believe abortion should be a woman’s decision. A sizeable majority of Michiganders agree that abortion is a decision to for a woman to make in consultation with a medical professional she trusts.

Detroit’s Care Center the First of Its Kind in the Heart of the City

Roots.

michiganchronicle.com

Bringing Behavioral Health Needs to the Community The Detroit Wayne Integrated Health Network (DWIHN) current West Milwaukee Ave. headquarters in Detroit will be transformed into the city of Detroit’s first Clinical Care Center. “We are pleased to transform this building into a Clinical Care Center in which people that need short term crisis intervention whether it’s for mental health or substance use disorder, get the help they need and get connected to Eric Doeh services and support,” said DWIHN President/ CEO Eric Doeh. “The goal is to alleviate taking someone who is in crisis to jail or the emergency department and get them the appropriate help they need. This Care Center is unique because all the services are all under one roof, Crisis Stabilization, Crisis Residential and Crisis Sober Living.” The facility scheduled to open early 2023 will be a place where adults and children can be evaluated to determine their medical necessity for crisis level services. It will add 39 beds to DWIHN’s Crisis Continuum and will be a 24-hour Clinical Care Center. “Wayne County has approximately 1.6 million people, with a population like that, we should have at least 3 crisis centers,” said Doeh. “This is an opportunity to provide access to quality behavioral healthcare services in the community and continue to erase the stigma that comes along with mental health. There is no shame in asking for help. We want services to be accessible for all, no matter zip code, age or race.” State and local elected officials and County and City law enforcement will be present. DWIHN is compassionate and committed to the 75,000 children and adults it serves in Detroit and Wayne County. It is the largest community mental health agency in the State. We understand the immense responsibility we have been given and we go above and beyond in supporting the people we serve and the hundreds of Providers in our System of Care. Our Providers serve individuals with serious mental illness, children with serious emotional disturbance, people with autism, individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and those with substance use disorder.

Social Media and Black Youth: Can Positive Affirmations Curb the Impact

By Megan Kirk

Frasier has developed a tool that may help Black and Brown children not only navigate media and culture, but also help to build mental health habits. Through a series of three-minute podcasts, Frasier has found a way to merge the youth with positivity through technology. “’Charm Words’ was developed when we saw the affirmations of words actually help children feel happier, specifically children of color feel happier and even close the grade gap with their white counterparts by 40 percent,” said Frasier. “When I saw that stat, I immediately felt like we needed to create a podcast that had an impact on the behavioral health of children, especially children of color in this current environment, in this current climate.”

Social media has changed the landscape of the world and some believe it’s not for the greater good. While social media provides an outlet to the stressors of life, it is also a platform for overstimulation. Adults, teens and children alike have witnessed the perils of social media and the pool of negativity that can be associated with it. As communication and entertainment shifts, ways to counteract its effects are also on the horizon. Children can be the most impressionable users of the internet. Videos of violence, sexuality, drug abuse and other content are made readily available for the country’s youth with little to no filter. Though all kids are impacted by the woes of social media, Black and Brown children seem to be at a larger disadvantage as cases of social and racial unrest have repeatedly played on phone screens over the last several years. Witnessing these encounters firsthand has had a damaging effect on the mental health of some children and impacting their view of themselves and the world. “In many ways, a person’s affirmations of words and how that’s connected to how good, especially children of color, do in school. The way children perform in school impacts them longer than just that one day of school. That impacts them, essentially, for the rest of their lives; how they perform and how they react and how they deal with grades,” said Anthony Frasier, CEO of ABF Creative. “The other reason why is we live in an environment where mostly kids are on their phone, a lot of bully-

Kids aren’t necessarily going outside and interacting with other humans the way they used to.” President Joe Biden addressed the country in his State of The Union speech in March and called attention to the impacts of social media. Urging tech giants to be proactive in placing restrictions and safeguards on social media platforms, the President said in part: “It’s time to strengthen privacy protections; ban targeted advertising to children; demand tech companies stop collecting personal data on our children.” With a background in tech, Anthony

The addictive nature of social media can be considered a drug for some children. With algorithms designed to keep users coming back for more, hours can be lost as messages are internally downloaded to children. These messages have been proven to have a stark impact on their minds. This may cause jarring effects to not only the brain, but the emotions of viewers. “In one sitting on social media, you can see death, you can see something funny, you can see something sad, you can see something hilarious, you can see something that inspires you and you see all of that within a one-minute time span scrolling up and down. That’s unhealthy. The human brain was not meant to switch emotions 10 to 12 times within a three-minute span,” said Frasier.

Summits Showcase Pipeline for Minority Coaches, General Managers By Troy Vincent, Executive Vice President of Football Operations

The National Football League and the Black College Football Hall of Fame are bringing together our game’s most promising leaders at the annual Quarterback Coaching Summit and Ozzie Newsome General Manager Forum. It’s not just about presenters -- those who have already risen through the ranks to the highest level. It’s also about participants: 48 upand-coming coaches and 17 aspiring executives from the NFL and NCAA -- those who represent the future of pro football. They come from diverse backgrounds. They’re getting set to take a step forward in their careers. And they’re all capable. Preparing and uplifting top talent For readers who may be unaware, the QB coaching summit and GM forum are held to foster the development of minority NFL coaches and general managers. These events are critical components of the NFL’s existing -- yet evolving -talent pipeline, specifically for diverse prospects on a trajectory toward offensive coordinator, head coaching, and

defensive coaches?” Data tells us that most NFL head coaches -- the vast majority of whom are white -- skew toward the offensive side of the ball. Many were QB coaches themselves. Meanwhile, the head coaches of color who have been hired by NFL clubs tend to specialize in defense. So we’re doubling down on offense, which has proven to be both the preferred path and an area in which clubs can improve representation in the head coaching ranks. This approach is very intentional. It’s in line with the NFL’s ongoing efforts to break mobility barriers, establish a cultural norm of opportunity for all, and develop a diverse and inclusive workforce. Look no further than past attendees who’ve progressed in their careers -- leaders such as Kwesi Adofo-Mensah, Marcus Brady, and Pep Hamilton. That’s the goal.

Social Media Coaching Summit From page A-3 To help children deal with the impacts of social media, parents are encouraged to step in and monitor their child’s social media accounts and the pages they follow. Parents are also encouraged to feed their children positivity away from screens so children can feel heard, seen and validated. “Affirmations of words are really important. That’s the reason why we even created the podcast in the first place. Number two is I would definitely say limiting the amount of screen time they have. I think that’s something that’s not talked about a lot simply because everybody has a cell phone. I think limiting the amount of screen time and having honest and open conversations with your kids about the things they’re going through,” said ­Frasier. “We’re not talking to kids enough.”

From page A-3

I wrote in the Chicago Tribune about significant progress that NFL clubs have made in hiring minority GM candidates. The GM forum is one piece of a process -- built from the ground up -- that gives proper exposure to the best front office candidates from diverse backgrounds. When analyzing why more GMs of color hadn’t been hired, we found that clubs were often looking for skills typically found in a head coach, when they could have been giving more weight to GM-specific strengths such as personnel management and accounting.

Plus, to put it simply, worthy executives of color were flying under the clubs’ radars. We launched the GM forum in 2021 to address both issues. The forum places emphasis on front office skills and puts excellent minority candidates in front of clubs who could be in the market for talent. Additionally, as part of this new process, NFL Football Operations works with a committee of representatives from the Black College Football Hall of Fame, the Fritz Pollard Alliance and former GMs to ensure underrepresented candidates are known and seriously considered. The committee identifies and NFL Football Operations then shares the names of top

GM prospects -- inclusive of race and gender -- with clubs, hiring consultants and agents toward the end of each season. Accountability is introduced into the process, as data is collected and tracked on the number of interviews and job offers. Results are improving because we’re intentionally working on the process and bringing attention to the talent pool. In 2022, three people of color filled five open GM positions, and 22 of the 40 candidates interviewed were minorities. Inclusion and the future of football Developing and displaying diverse talent is key to the future of our game.

We’ve built a strong pipeline and are continuing to find ways to diversify the NFL’s coaching and GM ranks. If we remain diligent, we can get to a place where a tool like the Rooney Rule, which mandates that clubs interview external minority candidates for certain positions, will be unnecessary. But process is vital to creating a workplace culture in which there’s diversity in leadership, absent mandates for interviewing minority talent. And programs like the QB Coaching Summit and Ozzie Newsome General Manager Forum will help us get there. Troy Vincent Sr. is the executive vice president of football operations for the National Football League.

Summertime in the City By Sherri Kolade Staycationers it’s your time to shine. With less than a month away, summer is nearly here and many people are already making plans to soak up the sun in go-to places like Orlando, Fla., Los Angeles, Cal., and even South Carolina’s Myrtle Beach not to mention other popular vacation destinations. With just 13 weeks total of this glorious sun-drenched season, how should Michiganders who choose to stay home (if they don’t have the coins, or opportunity, to travel) plan to have fun? According to sassmagazine. com, there are countless themed at-home vacation ideas people can partake in that won’t bust your budget. Stay at Home (Order) First things first – let’s define staycation. “A staycation is, quite simply, an at-home vacation. How realistic, how exciting or how relaxing you make it is up to you. Theme it up for a more authentic ‘away-fromhome’ experience,” according to the article. Things that make a great staycation include starting summer early with self-care staycation weekends. “Take time to relax, focus on self-care and get away—if not physically, then at least in mind and spirit,” according to the article. Some forms of local fun can include having an at-home spa weekend. From a pampering week to wind down from the early part of the year, think of purchasing a self-care/spa package at your local, Black-owned luxury spa place. Be Spoke Wellness Partners wrote in an article that relaxing and making your life a priority can be done by promoting self-care in your life. “When you think about paying attention to yourself—your dreams, your body, your mental health and everything that has to do with you—what is it that you are thinking about?” author Limor Weinstein noted. “How would you feel if just for one hour -- and maybe we can even stretch this a little bit to one day -- you only think about you and your needs? Many of us confuse taking care of ourselves with being selfish or inconsiderate, but if you truly give this some thought, you’ll realize that in order to be all that you want for everyone else, you must first take care of yourself and make yourself a priority.”

A Touch of

Faness By Megan Kirk

T

he 1980’s and 90’s saw many innovations in Black fashion. From hair to accessories and clothing, this time period serves as a renaissance for African American expression. Nail designs became another facet for Black fashion. As time surges forward, nails remain a large part of African American fashion and it does not seem it will fade out. One local nail technician is opening up a new nail gallery and bringing a touch of finesse with her. Jenessa Davis began her nail journey in 2020. With a career as a cosmetology instructor, Davis created an avenue to become a traveling editorial nail artist in New York before returning to Detroit where she began work as a solo artist with her own salon. Working with each client, Davis is able to create one-of-a-kind nail designs with the help of her patrons. “The creative process starts with each client sitting down and I kind of just dig deeper into finding out their style, what kind of patterns, colors, things they don’t like, what they’re inspired by -- because I really want to pull out their own characteristics and their way that they express art and then I go and add that finesse to it,” said Davis.

Retail Therapy Get some (retail) therapy. We all need a little R&R – rest and relaxation. How much more during the summer to start it off right by wisely spending some hard-earned coins on a bit of fun, or just window-shop ‘til your hearts are content?

Now, Davis has plans to grow her field even more. Combining nails with art, Davis will launch her nail gallery, Faness, in June. More than a nail salon, Faness will infuse aspects of the art world from local, national and international artists and provide them a platform to showcase their works.

When shopping, however, don’t forget to show love to Black-owned businesses.

“I wanted to create more of an immersive experience between the client and the artists. I wanted to really bridge that gap between the nail world and the art world,” said Davis. “I wanted to bring in sound off of a projector, I wanted to bring actual art residencies into the salon and I wanted to bring art residencies with actual artists.”

If you do decide to venture around town during the summer, continue to supply love to Blackowned businesses, especially as the pandemic significantly impacted the travel industry with a continued ripple effect. Take a tour around the city (or local region) and book

How to Say “I Do” in Ever Changing Year of 2022

By Sherri Kolade Getting married is one time when a woman can get dressed up and make the day about her while wedding her prince charming for all her friends and family to see. However, making it official can be an already-daunting task for new couples looking to tie the knot, and now with COVID still throwing a wrench into the plans of roughly 2.5 million couples getting married this year, many bridesto-be are dealing with uncertainties that continue to cause wedding-related costs to skyrocket.

Couples around the nation are getting ready to say “I do” according to a Business Wire article about how 2022 marks the height of the wedding boom, according to The Knot Real Weddings Study. The article noted that during the second year of weddings, 2022 is going to be the biggest wedding track as of late with 2.6 million couples who wedding experts say are adapting by prioritizing health and safety concerns to move forward with celebrations – including those that were postponed from 2020. Recently, The Knot, an authority in wedding planning, advice

and resources, released The Knot 2021 Real Weddings Study, the largest study of its kind capturing responses from more than 15,000 couples who were married in 2021 discussing these numbers in real time. “Gen Z is a uniquely diverse generation and particularly eco-focused; as a result, we’re seeing personalization take center stage like never before,” the release stated. The study revealed that many factors impacted by COVID in 2020 are back to pre-pandemic numbers; only 10 percent of couples needed to

change their wedding location in 2021 (45 percent in 2020) while in 2022, 98 percent of those set to wed are confident their wedding will take place as scheduled. Guest counts started to rebound by the end of 2021 (110 in the second half of the year) and the 2022 average guest count is expected to be on par with the pre-pandemic guest size at 129. While the pandemic has brought about many things through this yearslong ordeal that includes unthinkable sorrows and trials — but fortunately, it

has not removed the spirit of love. Troy residents Ashley Cowser and her longtime beau Bryan Mitchell told the Michigan Chronicle that after meeting online through a dating app, she is keeping her head above water by getting into the thick of their June wedding by enjoying planning events and spending money and time wisely and where it makes the most “cents.”

experience while introducing them to a new realm of culture. Though nail art will serve as the base, Davis and her team plan to empower patrons to be artistically free through their designs. “We look into the dreams and desires to paint personal and unique nail designs. We are creating an immersive space and experience where both client and customers can feel inspired and creative,” said Davis. “I want to make sure people know how to express themselves by letting their nails be their canvas.”

In addition to growing art culture around Detroit, Davis intends to use Faness as a launching ground for her team. With plans to keep her team small, not extending beyond six nail artists, Faness will also provide nail technicians with the opportunity to learn and grow into their own lanes. “I feel great about teaching and educating my employees to be profitable and sustainable. Giving them the tools they need to grow and become independent on their own. I think oftentimes we think about a turnover rate, but I think about my growth rate,” said Davis. “It feels good that they are growing fast and if they’re

learning it lets me know that I’m doing my job well and walking in purpose, which is to improve, build and inspire, exceed and succeed. It is everything I would ever hope someone would do for me.” More than a nail gallery, Faness will serve as a female sanctuary. Davis will also use the gallery to educate patrons on nail care and exercise expert customer service through communication. “There’s no education around health, that’s the most important part, getting people into healthcare with their nails and creating an experience also,” said Davis. “

with Black-owned hotels, visit restaurants, and more. The EatOkra app also helps people find Black-owned restaurants around the country. I Am Black Business app is also a useful directory of Black-owned enterprises.

See if you can find fanciful foods that fit into the theme of your staycation. Or, ask your family to pamper you and cook (including doing the dishes). You can also sign up for delivered meal preparation kits. These kits arrive at your doorstep with all of the ingredients already prepped, along with stepby-step directions. You’ll feel like a professional chef in no time,” according to the article.

The Faness nail gallery will open in June and will be located in the heart of Detroit’s Old Redford neighborhood at 22000 Grand River Avenue. Strategically choosing the location, Davis wants to embrace the Black experience and local business owners for allowing her into the space. “I was really looking for an area that was all women, Black women, of course. I wanted to see my people. I wanted it to be placed in that culture,” said Davis. “I want it to be community-based and I wanted to make sure that the people that were letting me lease the building actually cared about me.”

also an option to do nothing. “Vacations don’t always have to be about excitement and activity. Sometimes, you just need peace and quiet to de-stress from life,” according to the article. “Create your Zen vacation in a quiet place within your home – make it off-limits to the children (perhaps you have someone who can take care of them). Then, unplug your clocks or put them in the closet so you can’t see them. Turn off your phone, put on earphones (if there’s house noise you can’t block out), and just…chill.”

“It has been a pleasure,” Cowser, who has a background in event planning, said of her wedding adding that she has purchased her wedding-related items online without any problems. She also found her wedding dress at a steal. “I am a good bargain shopper I always look for cheap deals online. I have gotten a lot for the money I have spent. Even if you are going for a smaller wedding things can still add up but just keep a budget in mind.” Cowser recommends that she would encourage other brides-to-be to be “patient” in exploring all the options one can with wedding planning, especially during a pandemic. “Always plan early and have a backup plan,” she said of her wedding that is weeks away. “This is the time to be creative and get things done.” Mitchell agrees and said that he left most of the planning to his future, efficient wife while he was always supportive. “I am looking forward for us to relax and enjoy [ourselves] more once wedding planning is over,” he said, adding that the couple set a comfortable budget and they are trying to “stick close to it as possible.” “My lady is a great wedding planner and good with small details in wedding planning.,” he said. April M. Boyce Cobb, owner and principal designer of Tender Moments, LLC, and executive producer and host of the From Yes to I Do Bridal Show told the Michigan Chronicle previously that during the pandemic she is “scrambling” to help her clients “keep the dream alive.” “The date may change, the venue may change, you may have to shift the guest count [but] one thing remains the same … love, and this is part of their love story – we made it through the pandemic,” Cobb said. Looking ahead, 75 percent of couples who got engaged in 2021 have already set a date for 2022, according to The Knot. Summer and fall will continue to be the most popular seasons to get married with 65 percent of couples choosing to wed during this timeframe. For the sixth year running, October is poised to be the most popular month to get married (17 percent) with October 22, 2022, as the busiest date.
