Recently I got the chance to attend Return of The Gods. It was held at the World Beat Center in San Diego,California. It was a fun filled three day event. Over the course of three days they had a fashion show,yoga,martial arts demonstration and African dancers. They had rappers,singers and guest speakers. It was really fun to meet a lot of the people in the black conscious community I’ve followed over the years. Return of The Gods was created by the brilliant Kateria Knows. She wanted to create an event that would bring black people together in love and peace. And also raise the collective consciousness of black people. We really need that right now. And I respect the fact that she’s putting forth the effort. Not just talking about it but putting it in action. I must give her a lot of props for that. The event was hosted by comedian Michael Colyar and Mama Funshine. Colyar was cracking jokes a lot. But he did keep it lively and kept the crowd involved. There were performances by rappers such as Sa-Roc,D Ranks,Sole,Herb Alkhemyst and conscious battle rapper BDOT. I also saw Ayanna Gregory,who is the daughter of the late comedian Dick Gregory. And I spoke with entrepreneur/radio host Six Goddis. Six is a really cool sista. They also had special honorees as well. The renowned healer and author Queen Afua was honored. I got a chance to chat with the elder. I told her I had some of her books and have followed her for many years. It was a pleasure to speak with her and her son. I also spoke with author/health activist Chef Ahki. She had a vendor booth selling her books and products. She has a great book called The Fibroid Elimination Recipe Guide. I suggest any women that want to avoid fibroids purchase that book. Also Booker T. Coleman was in attendance. Some of you may remember him from the documentary Hidden Colors. Lecturer Michael Imhotep was also honored. He is the creator of the African History Network. I also saw rapper Lord Jamar from the legendary rap group Brand Nubian. And rapper Rah Digga was in attendance. It was a really fun event. I got to meet a lot of really cool and intelligent brothers and sisters. There was definitely nourishment for the mind,body and soul. I hope Kateria does it again next year. I definitely would go!
