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..."

One FUN thing I LOVE playing is a game called WARRI . It is the oldest game in the world and originated in AFRICA. It is played many different ways and called numerous names depending upon the region of the world. The play mechanics in terms of thinking is as challenging as chess YET incredibly easy to learn and play like the simplicity of checkers. I have two WARRI game boards (the bigger one shown above). I bought both of them and learned the rules of WARRI from my friend and mentor, Oba. Click the pic to find out more. Really qool!
The Term "Same Gender Loving" (SGL)
"Same-Gender-Loving" or "SGL", its meaning which was coined and derived out of the Black community "...emerged in the early 1990s to offer Black women who love women and Black men who love men (and other people of color) a way of identifying that resonated with the uniqueness of Black life and culture".

Basically, it's a CULTURAL AFFIRMATION SPECIFIC to PEOPLE OF AFRICAN DESCENT. We speak for ourselves and self-identify for ourselves.
I live its ideology through LOVE and ACCEPTANCE.
