Danita Smith is the founder of Red and Black Ink, LLC. She writes about history and education from the perspective of real life—as a person who has graduated from public schools, obtained her bachelor’s degree in business administration, obtained her M.B.A. from an HBCU and secured a job in a STEM-related field for over 20 years. During that time she was a corporate trainer, a business manager and a hiring manager, which required extensive knowledge of disease states, quantitative methods and scientific applications.

She is now applying her skills to the study of computer science, with the goal of teaching computer science through web development. She hopes her real-world experiences will help others as they seek to ensure their growth and development and the academic growth of their children.

(Her son is the inspiration for ALL of her work.  He is currently in his last semester of college, with a 4.0 G.P.A, majoring in Software Development and Security and minoring in Computer Science).
