QUOTATIONS OF "BLACK"

"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..."

RECAP - Nubian Heritage (Nicholas Variety)
Art Exhibit In Downtown Brooklyn


Nicholas Variety Official Website:
NicholasReggae.com


Nubian Heritage (they call themselves Nicholas Variety now, but I prefer to still call them Nubian Heritage because it simply sounds more Afrocentric) had a grassroots art exhibit this past Saturday, December 11th, 2010.

Because I had a birthday party to go to I got to Nubian Heritage early and only artist Baruti Tucker was set up to display his work.

What makes Baruti's work os awesome is that he finger paints all his work without the use of a traditional brush.

Just sharing...

Prudential Center (Stadium) In Newark, New Jersey


My friend Ernest treated me to an NBA game to see the New Jersey Nets in Newark, New Jersey at the Prudential Center (Stadium) on Wednesday December 1st, 2010.

I haven't been to a live sports game in about 15 years and it was so qool to be there and humbled to have such GREAT friends in my life.

Quickly I will say that prices are outrageous and I couldn't imagine bringing a family to see any type of games on a regular basis. The prices for food and drinks could put me on a "fast".

Overall, I had a GREAT, GREAT TIME!! Can you believe that this game ended in TRIPLE OVERTIME!!!! This game was meant for me!!
