"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..."

Just A Few Pics From Riis Beach
The UNOFFICIAL Black Pride NYC Beach Party
Sunday, August 8th, 2010

Hey African FAM,

I literally only have a few pics to share of Riis Beach in Queens (border of Brooklyn) yesterday. I wasn't too much in a photography mood, but I had to make a special exception and get pics of brutha Lorenzo. He had at least 4 different outfits he changed into at the beach.

I also got a few general group pics of the beautiful bruthaz mingling on the beach.

I'm pretty sure another blogger will have full coverage with many more pics!

I call this the UNOFFICIAL Black Pride NYC Beach Party because it's been a few years now since POCC went under and doesn't sponsor the beach party anymore.

However, what's really momentous is that bruthaz and sistahs STILL come out to the beach in celebration of Black Pride despite there being no official programming. It's been 10+ years now of these beach parties and a testament to our tenacity... though I do wish that tenacity would translate from not just showing up for parties and having a good time, but also to our rising up to claim our own political power as Black same gender loving folks (gatekeeprs) with a host of issues we have to resolve to maintain healthier lives.

Anyway, it goes to to show that sometimes all we need is EACH OTHER'S COMPANY to have a FUN-FILLED day (and for some an evening behind the bushes and in the abandoned building ! Nuff said! )

Be qool y'all
