"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..."

"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."

"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..."

Malawi Male Couple Convicted Of Homosexuality
With a 14-Year Hard Labor Jail Sentence

Steven Monjeza, Age 26 And Tiwonge Chimbalanga, Age 20

Excerpt From GBMNews.com:

Lilongwe, Malawi (AHN) - A gay couple has been convicted of gross indecency and unnatural acts by a court in Malawi.

The men, Steven Monjeza, 26, and Tiwonge Chimbalanga, 20, were arrested in December 2009 after getting engaged and making arrangements for their wedding this year, according to reports.

They have been locked up since then and could face up to 14 years in prison.

The couple’s arrest has been condemned worldwide, and sparked international talks about homosexuality in their country.

According to Judge Nyakwawa Usiwa-Usiwa, the men were convicted of participating in unnatural sex acts.

Homosexuality is illegal in Malawi, as it is in many African nations.

Attorneys for the men insist their constitutional rights have been violated. They hope to take the ruling to the country's high court.
