Sandra Bland’s mother wants you to know the other black women who died in police custody


Nearly a year ago, 28-year-old Sandra Bland's mysterious death while in police custody captured the country’s attention. Now Bland’s mother, Geneva Reed-Veal, is raising awareness about other black daughters whose deaths escaped widespread media attention ...

ARE YOU FEELING JANELLE MONÁE’S NEW ‘DO?




To be perfectly honest, Janelle Monáe can do no wrong. With a classic and effortlessly chic sense of style, the self-proclaimed Android and Wondaland Records front woman has been slaying the scene from head-to-toe since she marveled us with her now trademark pompadour and black and white tuxedo ...

Janelle Monae & Wondaland - Hell You Talmbout (Eephus Tour Philadelphia 8-12-15)



Janelle Monáe Made a Powerful Rallying Cry for #BlackLivesMatter









Janelle Monáe has spent the last two days marching for freedom, but not from a record label or any other industry constraint as musicians often do. She's been marching for the freedom to live — for all black people to live. It's a march she began on Wednesday in Philadelphia, where she brought out the members of her imprint Wondaland Records for the live debut of a song called "Hell You Talmbout." She prefaced it with this striking explanation:

This song is a Vessel ...

I had lost hope for awhile when it came to R&B and Rap making music that is relevant sans the rampant consumerism, materialism, and sexual exploitation. Hearing Janelle's music caused my soul to sing out in joy. I also greatly appreciate her efforts in social activism and have great admiration for her.

In the Spirit of Sankofa,


"By re-framing one of the most important, controversial, and misunderstood issues of modern times, “By Any Means Necessary” (BAMN) puts forward insights into a powerful new plan for repairing and restoring the damaged minds of African Americans. Yet, at the same time they identify areas and issues that perpetuate mental dissonance, spiritual confusion, and deteriorating health conditions."

Pastor W.O. Bailey… Dallas, TX

We've been told that we have come a long way. We have been told that we have made a great deal of "progress" since Slavery and Jim Crow. We see Black celebrities on TV and "feel" that as a people we have made strides.

But the statistics tell a whole different story. In 1905 Black people in America owned 15 million acres of land. Right now, Black people own less than 4 million acres. Black people are the biggest consumers in America (approaching 1 trillion dollars) but less than 5% of this money goes back into the Black community. And because of this, Blacks own less than 1% of the wealth in America.

Black people also suffer disproportionately from diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, kidney failure and almost anything else you can think of besides skin cancer. So what is the problem? Is all this because we still live in a system of racism? And if so, what exactly is this system?

By now we all know that Black people are the original people on this planet. We know that we are the founders of civilization. But, with all of this knowledge that we have, we have done very little to liberate our people.

Why is that? What is stopping us from doing what we need to do? What is keeping Black people from uniting? Is there a conspiracy to stop us? And if there is a conspiracy, then who is behind it? And what exactly are they doing to keep the status quo?

It's time to stop playing games and beating around the bush. We need to go back and look at what has happened to us, where we are now, and what we can do about our problem.

Now, if you don't think there is a problem, and that Black folks are doing just fine, then this book is not for you. If you are looking for a 300 page scholarly book (plenty of those already exist), then this is not for you.

This is a back to the basics book that seeks to provide some practical steps that we can make that will move us towards liberation.

So if you are looking for something that is relevant, hard hitting and to the point, then you must check out this work. By Any Means Necessary!

You are absolutely correct brother, there needs to be a complete and thorough reprogramming of the African/Black psyche... As long as we are immersed in a negative psychological depiction or image of ourselves we will continue on this self destructive path...These three minor points are just a few ways in which can begin to address our situation..
Reprogram young minds...
Develop a new approach to African American education....
Create a portfolio of positive propaganda tools to promote, protect and reinforce a new education system..

from Tom Burrell's book 'Brainwashed"....
I believe that first and foremost it is the mindset and behavior that needs to be adjusted drastically.. We have bought into this negative image of ourselves that white america has promulgated with huge success and it is going to take some time to deprogram ourselves...
