You Might Not Get Here With Us

Recently, a male friend of mine said something kinda wack on Twitter about feminism. I hit him with an email to ask why (not why he felt the way he does, but why not just keep certain things to yourself—-esp when you are being dismissive of something that people live and die by) and we had an…

Son of Baldwin: Making Lemonade

sonofbaldwin:

I know a lot of black people—specifically, a lot of black gay men—who are like Don Lemon.

These are men who have endured a great deal of pain and abuse at the hands of other black people, whether friend, family, or others in black communities.

These men have faced homoantagonism and other…

The 2013 PoC Tumblr Meet (PoC only) will take place in the form of a picnic in Harlem’s Morningside Park.  It will be a gathering of local and non-local tumblr users, of color, to meet one another face to face.  Putting the human element back into the sharing of knowledge.

If you didn’t attend the PoC Tumblr Meet in 2012, I can’t describe to you how positive the energy was. Hearing one another’s voice, reading the emotions, and witnessing the true passion that lies behind everyone’s personal struggle, story, revelation, awakening and continual growth was truly inspiring.  We hope to see and meet others this year around.

It is important that we are aware of who within our physical community are on the same page with us.  It also helps to build, if not lasting friendships for some, unforgettable memories for all.  

You do not need to be fully knowledgeable on all topics in order to come.  We ALL know of something that someone else may not.  There is no set structure - as you will see - the conversation will keep going.

What to bring:  (Recommendations)

  •    A blanket, water, some snacks/meals for yourself.
  •    A Pen and Paper/Notebook!  Always good for note taking for your own research later on.
  •    Educational literature that you don’t mind sharing, discussing, or (giving away).
  •    A mental list of questions on a topic that you may want clarity on.

A group photo will be taken.  (You’ve been warned)

For any more questions, comments, and concerns to SubconsciousCelebrity via message.  Also view his post about it, too.

Hope to see many of you there.  Please reblog (even if you can’t attend as one of your followers might be able to.)  Spread the word!  

Much light and love to you all!

I haven’t had much to say about the trial of Trayvon Martin (yes he was the one on trial) because like many of you— this shit was emotionally destructive. What you may not know is me and Trayvon are from the same neighborhood. Literally. That I went to the elementary school and middle school that…
