Are Black Children an Endangered Species?

Hello Ladies,

Abortion is like an elephant secret within our community. It's something that is frequently done among black women; however, it is an issue rarely discussed openly if at all.

The two questions I have are:

  1. Do you think black women are being wrongfully targeted by Say No to Abortion campaigns?
  2. Is abortion a form of genocide that is endangering black people?  

Below you'll find a great video that I think brings this discussion to the streets of Atlanta. I hope to talk more about this issue. So feel free to leave any comments.

Remember Ladies:

Within every black woman is a story. If she never tells you'll never know the woman. So sistahs, tell your story or no one else will.

Peace and Many Blessings.

Zora Neale Hurston Festival

Okay I went to the Zora Festival this past weekend. It was a great event, although I wished I could have spent more time perusing the shops and activities and not trying to flee from the pouring rain. Anyway, I saw the Sun of the Sun production with my boyfriend; it was phenomenal. The play touched on soooo many cultural dynamics of our community that I think are still prevalent today.

At the festival I came across some awesome business owners (1) jewelry maker (2) traditional artwork collector and (3) painter. Check out my interviews with each of them below. Also please visit my website if you know of anyone that would like to have their business reviewed/publicized or have an interest in a cultural ethnography to determine customer behavior. Last but certainly not least...

Stay blessed ladies
