    Rest In Power....It's like the universe is sending us a message the past few years that the new generation of Black writers, scholars, and thinkers gotta step their game up.....We've been losing a lot of our scholars.....

    No doubt bros. Jahari Kavi and jamefrmphilly, its a clarion call for those that can hear it:


    BAMN - By Any Means Necessary

    And this is our first contribution toward leaving a legacy for that cause...


    Peace In,

    It's also a reality check/wake up call/etc. to those who just speak OF our relations in the motherland, while few do have a TRUE rapport with any of them...

    I do hope and pray Enki isn't the only exception...

    Do keep in mind the generation gap(s)...

    Also add in what matters to you about these black icons, and that will tell other folks a lot about you too...

    FYI...

    A great writer. I have a copy of his book..THINGS FALL APART. A great write has gone... I remember writing a passage from the same book as part of my short hand dictation. The book and the name has always been something that I admired. He surely will be missed.

    I'd also appreciated your feedback about how and why his writing inspired you too...
