💥 The ‘Motivational sh*t’ you need today

Janey Tate of Hy-Lo News takes over The New Tropic every other Monday to share what’s popping in Miami-Dade’s Black communities.

💧What Miami is talking about

Robert Stephens III became Miami Gardens’ youngest council member last week. The 26-year-old is taking over the post from Councilman Erhabor Ighodaro, who lost his bid in the Senate District 35 Democratic primary to State Rep. Shevrin Jones last month.

The world of OnlyFans has gone mainstream: The site, which is popular among sex workers and was even mentioned by Beyoncé in her verse on Megan Thee Stallion’s “Savage” remix, has grown in popularity amid the pandemic. It intrigued South Florida-based author and sex therapist Majesty Santiago, who was nice enough to share her experience on the site with Hy-Lo News. Santiago also divulged some dos and don’ts for those interested in starting their own account.

Coloring books aren’t just for kids anymore! Adults have been getting back in touch with their youth through coloring, and mental health professionals say it’s a great way to relieve stress, improve vision, and even help you sleep better. Felecia Hatcher, founder of Code Fever and Black Tech Week here in Miami, has shared a new adult coloring book of her own, “Motivational Sh*t.”

Just a reminder that The Miami Foundation has partnered with Miami-Dade County’s Department of Public Housing and Community Development to share $10 million in grants with small, local non-profits. Eligible groups can apply for grants of up to $47,500 for reimbursements or future projected expenses; applications are being accepted through September 30th.
