Born in Annapolis and currently in love with Baltimore, Hess is the accumulation of her mother’s and grandmother’s and foremother’s love. Creative, fluid, compassionate and fierce being that is very protective of what and who she loves. Water and all of its abilities personified. Fire too. Student of the world. Made of stardust and her ancestor’s wildest dreams. In between her pieces that can be found on RaceBaitr, Black Youth Project, Wear Your Voice Mag, Brown Girls Out Loud and Medium, you can find her online “politicking” about Blackness, Hoodoo, History, Feminism, Motherhood, Queerness, Food, Books, Sex and Humor.
