"Whenever I use BLACK it relates to some history of Africans in that particular place. It’s the idea of the color BLACK as a metaphor, or as a representation of African-Americans. It’s the notion of BLACK- BLACKNESS - and all its other meanings in relation to the history of race..."

- Fred Wilson

"Most of my fortitude to continue doing the work comes from the moral outrage I feel about the injustices that Black people endure disproportionately daily."

- N. Abdul-Wakil

"In the end, what matters is not skin shade but pan-African consciousness. Loving your complexion, your nose, lips, hair length and texture, no matter what the politics or trends decide, and simply be. That's the problem with us (African folks). We're still learning how to love ourselves. So used to glorifying others and putting others first..."

Coney Island Boardwalk Summer Music Series
South Brookyn, New York City

Hey Black Family,

I typically DON'T promote PARTIES and club & bar scene stuff as I feel there are soooooooo many folks out there promoting and cross-promoting these things. And quite frankly, a lot of these party events are economically incentive driven and... I'm NOT getting PAID to promote da shit!!

I do what I do out of passion and LOVE, and seeing my MOM lead the civil rights crusade by example; it's quite humbling when your Mom asks you (a 14 year old kid) to assist her at the Mandala Center (in Harlem back in the day, 1980s) to help feed the homeless; and because there's not enough socio-political news and pro-action happening in regard to the African Diaspora; and certainly not enough critical analysis/thinking out there of our circumstances. Plus the little guy is constantly getting his neck and head stepped on on a daily basis and doesn't get SELECTED to make the major news... because Black lives don't matter in some people's minds!!

Anyway, I will say that I went out to the Coney Island Boardwalk Summer Music Series last year for the first time and had a great time. There was truly great house music, it didn't cost anything, and it was especially warming to me because it is in my 'hood of Coney Island, south Brooklyn where I have grown up all my life. If you check out my Nubian Knights Network YahooGroup with all the stuff I have published over the years since 2002, you'll see that I'm making a truly rare exception here. LOL!

Anyway, come down to my neighborhood and have some FUN!
