    :toast: Blaklioness,

    Great show, The Black Wombniverse with Seek Wisdom and beautiful guest, Marguerite Laurent. What stands out in my mind is health issues, the hybrid food, along with other things signifies a silent weapon toward our destruction...Peace In my sister friend Blaklioness, another excellent post!

    She indeed shared an essential range of historical and current information in that interview---even challenging many conventionally-held notions (Toussaint L'ouverture for one blaring example); I am anxious to hear the second part when it's arranged. Meanwhile, here's a few of the links she referenced:

    Okay Sister Blaklioness,

    Great stuff and Monsanto is on the ball shooting 3's, lol, for real. Will you elaborate a little on the Toussaint L'ouverture revelation, I missed that Blaklioness.

    Ok..I hate misquoting and/or misrepresenting someone, so, at some point, please do go back and relisten to the interview. It's worth it. As soon as the second interview surfaces, I'll be sure to post it. She gave information about the Haitian Revolution and the misperception of L'ouverture as the "Father" of the Revolution; she pointed more to Dessalines and indicated that L'ouverture never seemed to get past the view of Haiti as a Black-ruled colony. In other words, France and any other involved colonial powers (nonblacks) would still ultimately reign but with 'black' faces at the controls; so, you know what that means.

    Also, you know that Montsanto is the company she referenced in regards to the hybrid seeds right? I'd actually heard about Montsanto prior to the interview; it seems they have quite a controversial history as an agricultural empire. People really do need to investigate these issues, as there are great implications for our health and our freedom of choice.

    Chevron...I think you'll enjoy this one and perhaps find some more information to merge with your own research. Try double clicking on the link, or go to this link and then click on the show (Ezili Danto):

    Let me know how it goes.
