"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..."

UPDATE (Saturday, October 27th, 2012)

I just got back from the Comic Book BOOK Party and had a nice time. I saw one of my favorite artists (a qool, qool brutha) and the co-event organizer, N. Steven Harris.

I picked  up a few books from the grassroots Black artists that were there: so, from C.F. Godwell we have NUKLEUS: Born Into This and it's precursor The Boy From Planet (pictured above and signed -- of course!)

And from an artist named Da'Shen I picked up a science-fiction novella (short story) called The Atrophied Man. The small compact size and NICE cover caught my attention, plus the fact it was science-fiction themes opened my eyes more.

Da'Shen said The Atrophied Man is about a brutha who has these powers where he can communicate with inanimate objects. The downside is that when he uses theses powers he blacks out for lie 3 months and when he awakens there's drama at times because he hasn't conducted his life in 3 months. It sounds interesting so I'll give it a read.
