Today marks Black Love Day! Here’s a bit of info, for those who are wondering what it is and what it celebrates:

BLD is an African-centered, alternative to the commercial Valentine’s Day with the wholistic goals of encouraging: 1) Black self-love instead of self-hatred; 2) Racial healing to stop White supremacy, racism and entitlement; 3) The return to Love to heal all relationships for increased peace to stop violence!

BRIEF HISTORY: BLD was founded in 1993 by Ayo Handy Kendi, founder/director of the African American Holiday Association (AAHA), and CEO of PositivEnergyWorks. Founder of Optimum Life Breathology, Transcendence Breath Worker, Sound Healer, Speaker, Storyteller, Author, Host- “The Sage-ing Baby Boomer Show”.

Yearly, Black Love Day has grown in popularity similar to Juneteenth and Kwanzaa. It has become recognized on many college campuses, notably FAMU, Morgan State and Howard U. as well as in many communities.

Tribute: Robert Nesta Marley

Today, 11 May, marks the death anniversary of Bob Marley, noted activist and musician. His legacy of reggae and Rastafari is known, and felt, worldwide. This post is but a tiny tribute to that legendary genius.

From AllAfrica.com:

Thirty five years after the legendary reggae singer Bob Marley passed on, his legacy still lives on, thanks largely to the messages of love and unity that his music espoused.

In memory of this outstanding legacy, birthday anniversary celebrations in honour of the reggae legend have been held across the globe every May 11, the date on which he died in 1981. In Rwanda, the celebrations have come to be synonymous with Mulindi Japan One Love, popularly known as Kwa Rasta in Kimihurura.

This year, the celebrations have been dubbed Bob Marley Festival, and for the first time, will run for three days, from May 11-13.

To headline this year’s event is the Lion Story reggae band from Burundi. The 10-member band first performed in Rwanda in 2012, at the KigaliUp Music Festival. They have since returned to Kigali for a few concerts, although it’s the first time they will be performing at the Bob Marley birthday celebrations in Kigali.

A Final Thought For Thursday…

***WARNING – MIGHT BE TRIGGERY***

I don’t often do “trigger” warnings, but…if you see yourself in this video, reach out and get support. You are not alone. For anyone and everyone who has survived this, and for anyone and everyone who might unknowingly be enduring it…this is for all of us. Abuse doesn’t have to be physical, either – it presents itself verbally, emotionally, and sexually – even in marriages.

Also, today marks 2 years since those brave young ladies were abducted from the school in Chibok, Nigeria, by the terrorist group Boko Haram. They have been gone from their families and loved ones for 731 days.

If I could end one thing…

…it would be hate. Ah, Ankara and Brussels…I weep for them.

Indeed…always.

Black Power

Many of you still holding on
To ill-conceived conclusions.
Continuing to treat us Africans
Somewhat less than human,

This is to point out for you
Things that we do not ignore,
