My name is Cherokee Black. I am first of all, a woman of American ancestry, a mother, grandmother and loyal friend. I am a native New Yorker whose family’s journey started here in the 1850’s. I have been a model, magazine editor, actress, writer and am world travelled. I love books, writing, music, theatre, film and the cultural arts. My interests include beauty, fashion, health, relationships and their impact on our lives. I have survived unspeakable abuse and have lived a life of incredible highs, terrifying lows, challenges, personal, professional and victories achieved amidst daunting odds which have served to forge an unshakeable spirit with indomitable strength. My life’s mission is to share with others so as to grow, thrive, learn, reinvent and empower each other during this , the “prime of our lives”. Join me.
