"Thanks For The Support Everybody!!!"


"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..."

OKON Underwear
New Black-Owned Fashion Underwear Company Needs Our Support: "LIKE" Them On Facebook and BUY Something!

Through LinkedIn I came across brutha Azi Okon who has his own new fashion underwear business in London, England. We've conversed a bit, and in the spirit of the 4th KWANZAA principle of "Ujamaa (oo-JAH-mah-AH): Cooperative Economics", I wanted to spread the word about his new underwear line which frankly looks HOT (I proudly confess to having a huge fetish for male underwear for eons now! LOL!) Check out the website and support if you can.

The following was an email that Azi sent to me regarding some questions I asked him:

Hello Mr Risbrook,

Thank you for the kind words and compliment, i deeply appreciate it.

I am glad you love my design style, its my debut collection, do let me know which style you desire, i need all purchase support.

(ROD'S QUESTION: So are you a Black-owned company or aka a company of African descent owned?)
- Its African owned

(ROD'S QUESTION: What does "Okon" stand for or mean? Is it African based?)
- It's an ancient African male name.

(ROD'S QUESTION: What sizes do your undies generally run in? I see only small, medium and large. Will you offer extra-large and 2XL???)
- I shall offer all sizes in the following (next series) collection.

(ROD'S QUESTION: What is the inseam length of your undies? They seem more like trunks(?). I preferably like a 6" inseam, but they seem shorter than that.)
- The inseam for the modal boxer is 5.5", and the Mesh boxer is 4.5", its very comfortable plus fits African males perfectly.

(ROD'S QUESTION: Do you ship to the United States? And by what method do you use? And how long for delivery?)
- Yes, I ship to the US by Air, and it takes a maximum of 5 working days.


- Thank you, the "About Us" section plus everything that makes it warm your heart, comes from my essence. Am glad it touched you as i have more to offer.

Thank you for the LIKE, please make a purchase to support, and if there are any opportunities in NY or anywhere else in the States, to get orders for my brand with its uniqueness for *condom-vaults* on the undies as stated on the "scroll", owing to HIV, please let me know. I need all the support to succeed.

Warm regards from Europe:

The DL Chronicles RETURNS - EPISODE: Thomas
World Premiere Begins Streaming
Monday, May 19th, 2014

Thank you for your former support of The DL Chronicles RETURNS.

We would like to apologize for the extremely long delay. The project faced many unexpected setbacks and false starts over the past two years. However, we are happy to announce that those obstacles have been cleared. Perseverance pays off!

On Monday, May 19th.
We will be releasing Episode Thomas to the public.


Vimeo is available online and through a variety of broadband devices such as Smart TV's and BluRay Players, as well as Apple TV, ROKU, Google TV, XBox Live, Amazon Fire TV, iPad, iPhone, Android, Windows phone, Samsung TV, Samsung BluRay, Panasonic Viera HDTV and more. So watch the show the way it was intended to be seen... everywhere!



As dedicated supporters of this project we would like to share with you our plans for 2014.
Due to the fact that this project did not meet it's original funding goal, we were not able to complete the full trilogy. Many of your perks pertain to the completion of the trilogy. We will contact you as the additional promised perks are made available. We are working hard to get you everything promised!

Therefore, we are releasing the first film for streaming rentals online on Vimeo On Demand. The profits collected from rental views will go towards funding the 2nd film; Episode Harvey!

If we can garner over 25,000 rentals, Episode Harvey can begin pre-production! The sooner we can make that goal, the sooner we can begin!

So we need your assistance spreading the word! Tell your friends!


Please discuss this series with friends and share our link http://www.vimeo.com/ondemand/dlchronicles
