I turn 29 today, It should feel like a milestone with certain graduation rites according to Destruction of the Black Civilization pg 167-168 by Chancellor Williams.   "In terms of constitutional rights and duties (the 2 were inseparable in early Africa) between group C and group d,  seniority was a significant difference since D was from ages 29 to 40 if otherwise qualified members in this class upon reaching the age of 36, were eligible for election to the most highly honored body and Society the Council of Elders an...

1. Stop caping, Stop cooning, Stop tap dancing, Stop catering and last but not least Stop falling head over heels for wypipo. Don't go out of your way to give them any remorse or sympathy. Time to practice apathy because one day, these same people who say they are not racist but keep the white power structure intact will have to decide if they want to ignore the problems of Black people or tip toe around Black issues while clinging on to their privilege. 2. Stop defending Black celebrities. They are just as...

The brain is a powerful, physical, organic organ. No, it can’t lift weights or anything but how it operates is still being studied and observed today. The immaterial mind is also powerful, if not even more with the way you can’t physically touch your thoughts and emotions. We must keep our physical brain active to up keep performance with mental activities like books, puzzles and even martial arts. Keeping up regular performance also applies to meditation when it comes to the mind and spiritually. If you use the...

*Kwame Ture formerly Stokely Carmicheal So there I was, sitting at the front row for Afrikan Liberation Day which was well under way. I wished my Keynote was first so I could really enjoy the program that I helped organize. Representatives of the Harriet Tubman Organization and the Afrikan Union Region 6 in Toronto had already given their solidarity statements which were both powerful. I talked myself multiple times into believing that I wouldn't be nervous...

  Spirituality is natural, to me it revolves around everything life sustaining. We are spirits in natural, physical vessels trying to manifest our goals, ambitions and desires from deep within. Our immaterial mind creates unphysical thoughts and images related to said goals, ambitions and desires. Our natural, physical being, carrying the spirit, has the ability to innerstand the sciences behind how nature works and our universe. Spirituality is intelligence that revolves around anything life sustaining. My spiritual depth ranges from the sun, rain, wind to the soil, plants and...

I had the pleasure of writing, preparing, practicing and finally delivering a keynote speech for Afrikan Liberation day last weekend. This is a yearly event I help organize and I manifested the keynote after our original speaker we had pulled out due to scheduling issues. The funny thing was I initially turned down the opportunity. I didn’t see myself as a public speaker *yet*. I didn’t feel like I reached my full potential as an organizer, I didn’t feel like I was anywhere near the level of the great...

For us Hip Hop old heads, the good ole days is something that's hard for us to let go. It took me the longest time to warm up to some of the newer rappers and actually listen to the music. I spoke with many people on how they feel the New Era doesn't stack up with the Golden Era. The problem Old heads don't get is that 90% of the time, the new wave of fans don't want to think about the music, they just want to feel it....

The Marvel and DC Universes have been the top comics since forever. Luke Cage, Black Panther and the relaunch of Iron man franchise as a Black woman are the hottest Black representations right now. From what I've seen, their representation is nothing short of being lit. The fact that Black writers, directors, actors and actresses are putting together these works is Black excellence in action. I still have to call it how I see it though...

Creative Writing / 01.05.2016

I am excited to submit my first work of writing for Farafina Trust 2016 writing workshop. Writing, whether it's for my blog or on my own is always enjoyable. That doesn't stop me from looking for opportunities to challenge my writing style and growth. I have no deadlines and only answer to myself and that's why putting a competitive edge to my writing is important. I keep my writing as sharp as possible, knowing that people around the world could be reading. Submitting a piece for an opportunity like...
