"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..."

Purple Galaxy Presents Yolo Akili's
New Black Same Gender Loving
Spoken Word Music Video Concretely

Brutha Yolo,


What an INCREDIBLY BEAUTIFUL and SENSUAL PIECE OF MOTION ART about the Black Same Gender Loving (SGL) experience Concretely is.

MAN! The video is so beautiful. For some reason it reminds me of something the late Black SGL filmmaker Marlon Riggs would have done.

Spoken Word And SGL Artist Yolo Akili

And check out Yolo's website, too. I went to Amazon.com and downloaded Yolo's new CD Purple Galaxy back in September 2010. CDBaby.com and iTunes also has his music as well.
