My friend, Anthony (Tony) Browder, is a brilliant "Cultural Memory Specialist," Egyptologist, and overall scholar on the whole continent of Africa. He has traveled to Egypt 45 times and his knowledge of metaphysics is spellbinding. He has conducted study tours to Egypt, West Africa, South Africa, and Mexico. He is so deep! I have seen him lecture in different cities and he is just a marvel to behold. His video, Egypt on the Potomac, illustrates how much of the architecture of Washington, DC, the nation's capitol, is modeled after the architectural wonders on Africa. He also discusses the symbolism present. (You can watch the video on youtube!)
This knowledge is necessary and life sustaining. As people who have endured so much trauma, it is soothing to see how other people have copied the work of Black people who have been told that they never contributed anything to civilization, yet everything we "contribute" gets appropriated. The fact is, we form the foundation upon which all human civilization sits upon. What a brilliant people we are!

Quote of the Week:
December 3, 2017
"There is a notion out there that black people enjoy the Sisyphean struggle against racism. In fact, most of us live for the day when we can struggle against anything else. But having been, by that very racism, pinned into ghettoes, both metaphorical and real, our options for struggle are chosen long before we are born. And so we struggle out of fear for our children. We struggle out of fear for ourselves. We struggle to avoid our feelings, because to actually consider all that was taken, to understand that it was taken systematically, that the taking is essential to American and echoes down through the ages, could make you crazy."
