A CRITICAL JUNCTURE FOR AFRICAN AMERICANS - A Road Map Toward Solution...

"The slavery that captures the mind and imprisons the motivation, perception, aspiration and identity in a web of anti-self images, generating a personal and collective self-destruction, is more cruel than the shackles on the wrists and ankles. The slavery that feeds the mind, invading the soul of man, destroying his loyalties to himself and establishing allegiance to forces which destroy him, is an even worse form of capture." -- Dr. Naim Akbar (1996)



"This is a critical juncture in… Continue

Spiritual Connective Jazz - The Pyramid Central

The World Stage Friday Night encounters of the best kind

PHOTOS BY HOSEA

The photos that I recently posted in Leimert Park Beat-my life line to "the Village since moving to St. Louis-were taken by my friend Reggie Turner. His "eye" knows the elements of "get the shot". I'm happy to share his art with you, "people of "the Village". And for you LPB, your flow is like the Mississippi River, life line.

Take Two Pills and Call Someone Who Loves You

Yeah, I'm over it just like the church song on, "I Can Do Bad By Myself." I told myself, one more time

and I give up. I think its been 78 times. Jesus only said 77 and I haven't tried to count but this is it. I refuse to accept the blame. I'm hurt, yes, I'm affected, no doubt. I'm not alien--I have human feelings. When someone else throws their baggage, or garbage, off on me, I refuse to let it pile up. I'll accept recyclables and use what I can from the situation, but the rest is going to… Continue

i love wearing my cornrows or cropped curly hair,

and still feel gorgeous and makin' dudes stare

i love when black men bow down to me

and call me their sister

despite of not looking like the

girls in magazine pictures
