"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..."

A Tribute To Ado Tony Hughes
U Now Transition To The Ancestors As Ibaye

Tony Hughes

Tony... since your transition to the African ancestors... Ibaye... I was thinkin' how I could honor what you meant to me. I was looking through a few Black SGL books for poems or quotes - didn't find anything adequate. I then got the idea to look at some of my own poetry/prose.

I haven't had my poetry/prose published online since waaaaaaaaaaayyy back in the days (2001) of my Cast of Chocolate Warriors Yahoo Geocities website.

You have awakened the written word in me to share yet again...


{August ‘99}

Eye laid in bed thinking about you one night
Eye envisioned us making passionate love together
We were both naked and bare
We were embraced for a moment
The warmth kindling of our spirits
You stood back to take in my image
My left eye cried as a tear rolled down my face
You were startled and asked why eye was sad
Eye was not sad
But my body was rejoicing in happiness
Happiness in knowing you
Embracing you
Loving you

Eye’m thinking we could be potential soul mates
Yes, eye know it’s too early to say
And time will only tell
But if you are the one
Fate could not have granted me a better lover to love

Eye lit a candle last night
To awaken the spirit of you within me
The flame was a light of protection
Watching over me as Eye fell asleep like a baby
Eye awakened and you were still there
The flame ever luminescent
Still guarding and nurturing my being
You have been in my thoughts ever since we first met
Your image captured like a film negative exposed to my inner eye
My inner eye weeping with passion
Eye think eye have the potential for loving you
For love has no bounds
No limits for where…
Our spirits can fly
Like doves in a new found paradise gone by
