What About Regime Change For The US?

 

 

"Our government is wrong and it needs to change.  If it will not change, then we need to get rid of it, and put in a government that will guarantee life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for the American people... It doesn't matter who sits in the White House; if you don't uproot the structure that corrupts him, then you don't have a President.  You have a figurehead.  That's why I say America needs a regime change."  Miniser Farrakhan

In Honor Of Black History Month

 

If you had the chance to sit down and speak with one of the leaders of the Civil Rights Movements of the sixties, would you take the chance?  I did, and I think I made the most of it.  I had a secret meeting with Stokely Carmichael many years ago.  I talk about it publically for the first…

The Lydell Jackson Tapes

You think you know Lydell Jackson?



I just finished listening to the interview I recorded with Lydell Jackson a couple of weeks back as part of my Important Voices Series. I didn't realize how insightful and content rich the interview was because as the interviewer I had to flow with the action. But having the chance to step back and listen to it almost as an outsider or 3rd party, I can say the content exceeded my expectations. I didn't even want to edit it, so I didn't. I 'm just… Continue

You Ain't Heard Nothing Yet

People,



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

Change Has Come

Well gang, today is the day. Barack Obama was just inaugurated. He's officially the 44rth President of the United States. On a day like this I am reminded of what his candidacy and his victory has meant for me and I am moved to share that I see Obama as a metaphor of success and possibility for the rest of us.



Obama and I were schoolmates at Columbia University. He transferred there in his junior year while I was a senior. I didn't know him per se, but I saw him around the campus… Continue
