History with a Twist was established in 2018 to be utilized as a creative and unique resource to educate the community on the rich  African American history and culture. My passion for African American history started as a child when I’d read Ebony Pictorial History of Black America.

I developed an appreciation for the diverse and vast contributions of African Americans in world culture. For more than 10 years, I have designed and directed interactive black history programs in the Tampa Bay community with exceptional reviews. This saying by Maya Angelou speaks to  my desire to spread African American history – “You can’t really know where you are going until you know where you have been.”


History with a Twist goes beyond the standard black history curriculum usually taught in schools. It is meant to be mobile and bring the history to wherever it is needed or requested—from churches, schools, corporate events, barbershops, salons, to private parties.

I look forward to sharing my passion for history with you!
