_A Weekend in Wakanda_.png


The sheer magnitude of a movie with a black director, writer and primarily all black cast set in Africa was something I’ve never seen before.  I knew this was going to be a special moment and I was right. I had no idea how special it would be until right now.


About D. Sanders

My logo, a woman blooming from a Lotus, represents everything that I am and everything I hope to be; a woman blooming from wounds, hurt and pain.  One petal at a time, I am blooming into my purpose. In spite of being surrounded by the muddy waters of life, I flourish. The Sum of Many Things is a Lifestyle and Personal Development Blog a for women of color who do it all in spite of “life’s mud”. It is my hope that I speak for women who refuse to be confined or imprisoned by their circumstances but instead bloom from wounded spaces.”  This blog is a piece of my heart that I share in the hopes that we heal, grow thru it, survive and thrive.  This is a “safe space”, without judgement or preconceived notions of womanhood, motherhood, sexuality, and femininity. We define who we are and who we want to be.  We are the Sum of Many Things but in all things we remain beautiful and blooming into our purpose and destiny.  Thank you for visiting my website and I hope to connect with you soon!- D Sanders
