    Malcolm X would have been 90 years-old on May 19; with the recent events in Baltimore and across our country I wonder what our country would be like if Malcolm had lived. Over the years, I’ve read countless quotes attributed to Malcolm X and wonder whether or not Malcolm X was ahead of his time ...

    “I, at first, thought they were thugs, especially after having our business looted. However, there’s a bigger issue going on when a leader of the community speaks this way about her people, it gives “others” the right to say far worse. I have defended these kids as an attorney ...

    When great trees fall, rocks on distant hills shudder, lions hunker down in tall grasses, and even elephants slumber after safety. When great trees fall in forests, small things recoil into silence, their senses eroded beyond fear. When great souls die, the air around us becomes light, rare, ...

    “Southern trees bear strange fruit, blood on the leaves and blood at the root, Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze, strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees. Pastoral scene of the gallant south, the bulging eyes and the twisted mouth, scent of magnolias, sweet and fresh, then the ...

    “To dream the impossible dream to fight the unbeatable foe to bear with unbearable sorrow to run where the brave dare not go; to right the unrightable wrong to love pure and chaste from afar to try when your arms are too weary to reach the unreachable star. This is my quest to follow that […]

    Remembering Selma 1965-2015 “How I got over, how I got over, my soul looks back and wonders how I got over” One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts. I will speak of the glorious honour of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works. And men shall speak of ...

    “Now if you’ve ever been down to New Orleans then you can understand just what I mean. All through the week, it’s quiet as a mouse, but on Saturday night they go from house to house. You don’t have to pay the usual admission if you’re a cook, waiter or a good musician so ...

    “If it’s magic, then why can’t it be everlasting, like the sun that always shines, like the poets in this rhyme, like the galaxies in time. If it’s pleasing then why can’t it be never leaving, like the day that never fails, like on seashores there are shells, like the ...

    “Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted; the indifference of those who should have known better; the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most; that has made it possible for evil to triumph.” Haile Selassie “Every woman is a queen, and we all have ...

    “Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain; but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let ...

    “I’ve had some good days I’ve had some hills to climb I’ve had some weary days and some sleepless nights. But when I look around and I think things over all of my good days outweigh my bad days I won’t complain. Sometimes the clouds are low I can hardly see the road I ...

    “The man, who wants a garden fair, or small or very big, with flowers growing here and there, must bend his back and dig. The things are mighty few on the earth that wishes can attain. Whatever we want of any worth, we’ve got to work to gain. It matters not what goal you seek […]
