About C. Sala Hewitt

My roots stretch into the Mississippi delta region of Southern Louisiana to New York City, and down through the Caribbean islands of Barbados and Trinidad & Tobago.  Growing up in the “Cancer Alley” corridor between Baton Rouge and New Orleans gave me the first clue of environmental uncertainty.

My mission is to help generate critical thinking and popular appeal for sustainability and social responsibility among individuals and businesses through dialogue and deed.  I’m eager to engage and learn plenty along this personal and professional journey into creating a more sustainable planet.

I have a penchant for passion-centric engagement through media, arts, and advocacy.   In the commercial setting, in addition to my main role as strategic planner in leading advertising agencies, I’ve advocated for green innovation platforms among clients, launched an employee and industry-wide green awareness campaign, and consulted on multicultural brand initiatives.

In the social justice and arts arenas, I’ve provided development and creative service to organizations including Ubiquita Worldwide, Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice, Audre Lorde Project, Blackout Arts Collective, Chica Luna productions, and Freedom Train Productions among others.

For more information about my work, check the Consult with me page or contact me.

The title of this blog is a brief tribute to Langston Hughes,  perpetual muse…  My own poetic musings can be found here.

The Negro Speaks of Rivers, by Langston Hughes

I’ve known rivers:
I’ve known rivers ancient as the world
and older than the flow of human blood in human veins.

My soul has grown deep like the rivers.

I bathe in the Euphrates when dawns were young.
I built my hut near the Congo and it lulled me to sleep.
I looked upon the Nile and raised the pyramids above it.
I heard the singing of the Mississippi when Abe Lincoln
went down to New Orleans, and I’ve seen its muddy
bosom turn all golden in the sunset.

I’ve known rivers:
Ancient, dusky rivers.

My soul has grown deep like the rivers.
