Dedication to all my subscribers: I appreciate the love and support!

I wanted to make a video to show some appreciation to all the people I’ve met in cyberspace.  Like most people I’ve had ups and downs in life.  But even when I was feeling down a lot of you helped uplift my spirits.  And I’ve learned so much from many of you. Many of you have shared information with me that I never knew.  And hopefully I’ve done the same for you. That’s all I ever wanted to do.  I never started blogging to be Mr. Popular. I don’t do this to be some kind of conscious celebrity. I have strong opinions and I’ve actually lost subscribers because of my views. But at least I’m honest about my feelings.  I love my people and I just want them to realize we are in a real war at the moment.  I just try to bring them information that will elevate their consciousness and see through the lies. So this video is long overdue. To all the kind brothers and sisters I’ve chatted with on WordPress,Youtube and Twitter.  I also want to thank all the people who reblogged and shared my posts on Instagram and Facebook.  All your hard work is not going unnoticed. I appreciate all the love.  I just wanted to say thank you!

KRST Unity Center- Kwanzaa Celebration 2017

Kwanzaa..

Kwanzaa Display..

Just a week ago I went to a Kwanzaa celebration.  It was held at the KRST Unity Center of Afrakan Spiritual Science in Los Angeles.  It is ran by Reverend Dr Richard Byrd and his wife Reverend Erica Byrd.  The center is dedicated to the principles and practices of MAAT. The event itself was free for all to come.  It was nice to see so many black men,women and children having a great time. There was no drama and no fighting .  There were black vendors and musicians that performed.  There was a candle lighting ceremony that highlighted the principles of Kwanzaa. They explained libation and why our ancestors did it. There was a beautiful poem  by poet Tasha Auset.  A rap performance by a young man named Jeremiah Berryman. He was a real talented brother.  He was dropping positive lyrics with no profanity.   There was comedy by Daryl Mooney the son of comedian Paul Mooney. As well as a Kwanzaa play and African dancing. At the intermission the reggae group Fountain of Roots performed. Guest speaker Michael Imhotep from the African History Network had a lecture at the end of the ceremony. I really enjoyed myself.  You could feel the love in the place. It’s nice to be around black people that are comfortable in their own skin.  Everyone I met was really positive.  The vibe was very positive.  But I had such a great time  I thought I would share some of the pictures and videos of the event.

Tony B. Conscious..

This brother(above) is Tony B. Conscious. He’s a very talented rapper and spits positive lyrics.  I was joking around with him the whole night.  He is really cool and a down to earth brother.

Art3..

This is Tony’s apparel he was selling at the event.  He not only raps but makes t-shirts,beanies,hats,jewelry and is a painter.  He’s a very talented artist.  This brother does it all!  I bought a beanie and t-shirt from him.

Yendi6..

This beautiful sista is Yendi Serwaa. She is a very talented woman in her own right. She makes all these unique crafts and is also a painter.

Yendi4..

These are some of the products(above) she was selling.  Yendi is also on the Board of Directors at the KRST Unity Center.

Herb and Rev Richard Byrd..

This picture(above) is of Reverend Richard Byrd and Herb Alkhemyst.  Byrd is also known as Meri Ka Ra.  It was a pleasure to meet the elder.  He was a very nice man.  The lovely Alkhemyst is a singer/songwriter and herbalist.

Herb3...

Koshana Kweli and Kateria Knows also attended the event. Kweli is a spiritual consultant and child care provider. Kateria is an amazing astrologer and creator of the Real Family Reunion. Kateria spoke at the event about the power of purpose.  It was a great speech. They were really cool and down to earth sistas. It was a pleasure to meet them.

Herb2...

This picture(above) is with Herb Alkhemyst and her sister Kateria Knows.  They’re pictured with Michael Imhotep. He has a blogtalk radio program called African History Network. Imhotep gave a very powerful lecture at the event.  I got a chance to chat with Imhotep for about thirty minutes after the event.  I even bought a few of his dvd’s.

This was their first annual Kwanzaa event.  They say they will do more in the future. I’ll definitely try to attend the event again.  It was just a really nice way to end the year.  Black people talking about black unity,black economics,African culture,black history,black relationships,black unity and black love.  And those are the things we all need to carry on into 2018. ❤

Black Beauty Appreciation(Melanin Heaven Part 2)

.MH2....

I got such a great response from my post Melanin Heaven,I decided to do a part two.  Also a few subscribers said they would like to see a part two.  I thought I did a pretty good job with the first post.  Not sure if I can top that one.  But I’ll give it a try. I tried to find some pics of women that are not too well known. I wanted to introduce you to some new faces. So here are some pics of some gorgeous black women all throughout the African diaspora.  After this post there will be no doubt that black women are the most beautiful and diverse women on the planet! I hope you enjoy the pictures.  And be sure to comment or post any pics of black women you find beautiful.  Thank you and enjoy this second edition of Melanin HeavenBeauty Portrait....

Black Beauty Appreciation(Melanin Heaven)

Kushite Cover...

I have a lot of pictures I’ve collected over the years. I have collected hundreds of beautiful images of black women over a period of time.  Many of them I have never used in a post. So I thought I would post some of the beauties from the 70’s,80’s,90’s…up into the present.  You may recognize some of the faces.  Others you may not. Some of them are beauty contest winners,famous actresses,aspiring models and singers.  This post is open for anyone to put up pictures of black women they think are beautiful or exceptional in some way.  This post is a celebration of all the beautiful women in the African diaspora.  Or as I call it Melanin Heaven! Enjoy!
