"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..."

ADODI New York
will be holding a forum entitled:

Marriage Equality
and the Black LGBT/SGL Community

This forum will explore marriage equality and its role in the lives of men of African descent who love men.

• Is marriage really an elitist white gay agenda?

• Why do we see so few Black same gender loving people who support the right to marry in the media?

• Are our attitudes towards marriage a reflection of our deeper feelings about same sex relationships among men of African descent?

In attendance will be:
New York State Senator Velmanette Montgomery
New York State Senator Eric Adams
New York City Council Member Letitia James
