    @Scorpio_symone love that paradigm. Do you have any lectures, books or articles I can reference?
     
  • @scorpio_symone (2 dni)
    I don't know of any that are certified sources but if you google it some things come up from blogs and articles. Might be a research project for you 😊
     
  • @king_dystiny (2 dni)
    The perspective African men had towards 9 ether hair pre slavery. Or even the significance of the symbols on the hand carved combs if they had any. Hope this helped
     
  • @king_dystiny (2 dni)
    Oh and maybe even ritual/customs of hair styles Ie pre marriage, post marriage, coming of age

I gravitate towards folklore, oral historians, ripe mangoes, cocoa and palm kernels. I look out for patterns in my everyday life: in artwork, in my photography because my Africaness connects with the patterns in #AsoOke, #Ankara and #Woodin. // I just found 3 #WoleSoyinka #books #hardcover in the #thrift #blessup #bilbliophile #bookporn #imhappy #justwantedtoshare #xoDVF #africanliterature #rarefinds

  • @style__eccentric (17 dni)
    A job should never define who we are as a person but of course living inna brainwashed babylon society we are often faced with individuals who feel the need to ask the "what do you do" question as a way of proving identification. I always categorize that same question with "what can you do for me" because at the end of the day that's exactly what it boils down to.

k n o w t h y s e l f : Muhammad Ali. #blessup β€œWhy should they ask me to put on a uniform and go 10,000 miles from home and drop bombs and bullets on Brown people in Vietnam while so-called Negro people in Louisville are treated like dogs and denied simple human rights? No I’m not going 10,000 miles from home to help murder and burn another poor nation simply to continue the domination of white slave masters of the darker people the world over. This is the day when such evils must come to an end. I have been warned that to take such a stand would cost me millions of dollars. But I have said it once and I will say it again. The real enemy of my people is here. I will not disgrace my religion, my people or myself by becoming a tool to enslave those who are fighting for their own justice, freedom and equality. If I thought the war was going to bring freedom and equality to 22 million of my people they wouldn’t have to draft me, I’d join tomorrow. I have nothing to lose by standing up for my beliefs. So I’ll go to jail, so what? We’ve been in jail for 400 years.” #movie #netflix #muhammadali #knowthyself

in modern babylon, the illusion of understanding equals competence. one must simply acquire the appearance, trappings, & play the role. #xodvf

  • Very true...the making of a slave by Lynch is a must read for all black people. When you understand the game you can play to win. Thanks you, xovdf.

#read: β€œOften, in an immigrant family, it’s a very big departure for a child to say: I want to be an artist, not a #doctor, not a lawyer, or an engineer. The #father, here, tells his #daughter what so many immigrant #parents tell their children: Art is not the safest route in life. We didn’t sacrifice all this for you to take up a precarious profession. He tries to comfort her, at the same time, by insisting that being an #immigrant makes her an #artist already. And this is a fascinating notion: that re-creating yourself this way, re-creating your entire #life is a form of reinvention on par with the greatest works of #literature. This brings #art into the realm of what #ordinarypeople do to in order to #survive. It takes away the notion that art is too lofty for the masses, and puts it in the day-to-day. I’ve never seen anyone connect being an artist and an immigrant so explicitly, and for me it was a revelation.” #EdwidgeDanticat, All Immigrants are Artists. #xoDVF #goodreads #goodmorning

    @tepsi you owe yourself for that mindset, surely not Babylon, I mean America. Our parents did what they had to so that we could do as we choose; that in itself is a blessings and w/o their awareness, what they really want for us. It's not to be taken for granted. Those of our generation that survive learn to live life on our terms- free of cultural restraints. Deep w/in our parents are proud. #BlessUp

  • @xodvf (30 dni)
    I don't doubt it, Spirit speaks. I discovered her during a bitter period in my life; revisiting her work as the tides have changed gives me more clarity, I simple adore her. @vanessabisoux

competed an interview today sharing an experience few are privy to. the questions were framed with the assumption, propagated by social media, that I live an β€œeasy” life. although it’s easy to allow that perception to take hold, I shared that appearance is deceptive; the eyes are theoretically blind. I’ve carried my cross, beared my burdens and survived my trails. I’ve allowed them to make me stronger yet softer. So if I appear a little bolder, a little braver- it’s because I’ve earned my stripes and I’ve always looked good in stripes- mixed with a floral print preferably. β€” Life for me ain’t been no crystal stair. But #ueono. #xodvf
