I am absolutely delighted that February is finally upon us. I’ve always loved this month because of the colors—red, pink, and black. Throughout February we’ll be featuring posts that fit within the colorful umbrella of the month with a good combination of interviews with young black talent, short biographies of black leaders and pioneers, editorials, and maybe even a love poem or two 😉
In the inaugural Featured Soul column, I’m chatting with the emerging musical force, Brielle. This Philly-based artist is a perfect example of what your mama has been telling you since you were small—beauty comes from within. From her haunting vocals, to fabulous personal style, and love affair with science and the multiverse—this chick is truly a leader to watch. Read more below for Brielle’s thoughts on her newly released EP, The Rough Break-Up, along with views on spirituality, community activism, life-changing books, and more.
