You Ain't Heard Nothing Yet


I just got off the phone Ty Gray-El, the author of Breath Of My

Ancestors and numerous other works... All I can say is whew!

You think you know, but you don't -- not really. This man is one of the important voices of this era. He has depth and levels to him that I never expected.

We all loved A Black Woman's Smile, but it's not over. I'm trying to tell

you he's got stuff, better stuff, powerful stuff. It's coming.

Don't miss my… Continue

3 Books & A Hot Tip...

I ordered a bunch of books from Amazon earlier this week. Three were written by members of this community. I bought Pop Pop's Garden by Lydell Jackson, Breath Of My Ancestors by Ty Gray-El, and Sweet Lavender by Terry O'Neal.

Now when I order books from Amazon, I always choose free shipping because I've learned from experience that they will ship just as fast with free shipping as they would if I had paid for expedited shipping. For example, I ordered this latest batch of books on… Continue

the road 2 success

The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs (never that!!!!!).
But, if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver called JESUS, you will make it to a place called Success.
ps. Their is no commision for having no ambition!!

Hassan Khan - From Positive Vibrations to Chicago Legends

I had the priviledge of meeting Hassan in the mid 80's when I lived in Hollywood, California and as fate has it, our paths crossed again.

He now lives in Chicago and has been there since the late 80's, but Hassan's history goes back to the mid 60's when this master bass player, at the time in his teens, was playing with "The First Family of Soul", The Five Stairsteps, best known for their 70's song "O-o-h Child", and in the early 70's… Continue

Lamonte McLemore is the creator of the legendary five time Grammy Award winning vocal group, The Fifth Dimension.

He was born in St. Louis, Mo. under the zodiac sign of Virgo. As one of four children, he only dreamed of playing baseball and pitching for the Cardinals was the fastest way he knew to escape the poverty.

"Maybe even try my other fascination, the art of photography... I was lucky enough early in my career to photograph models for Harper's Bazaar in Los… Continue

Phil Guy & The Chicago Machine

As an athlete, imagine being the brother of Hank Aaron (Tommie), Joe DiMaggio (Dominic) or George Brett (Ken). No matter how good any of the brothers ever were at the sport of… Continue
