    This is fun forum entertainment. In this thread you post things that you remember that went on during this time. For example someone would say:

    I remember back in the 70's when......I went to an Earth, Wind and Fire concert with some friends and got....

    It can be anything that you remember during this time: music, movie, a concert, clothes, a dance, something that you or some else did, etc....ANYTHING!

    **If you weren't born or alive in this era then you can't say what you remember**

    I remember there were over 15 gangs in the 5 boroughs but not even .005 percent of the violence seen during the crack epidemic in the 90s or today.
    The constant presence of the NOI and the Panthers on the street had a psychological effect as well, and the music of Earth Wind and Fire, the Ojays, and Isley Brothers, mellowed us out and wised us out of violence.
    The NOGE was the fad of the time and brothers stayed on the corners into the night with ciphers.
    We were big as teens fros and beards, and went to grown folks clubs like;
    Pippins, Leviticus, in Manhattan and Walterio's Whisco manor, and club My Way in brooklyn.
    platform shoes, long collar shirts and cuffed bell bottoms, Dolomite hats and Mack staffs

    As teens the in drinks were, for the ladies;
    Hereford's Cow, came in vanilla , chocolate, strawberry, like a mickie Ds shake

    the fellas we drank; MD2020 (we called it mad Dawg Wine), Old E, Night Train,
    Mlat Duck in grape and apple,
    and in all 5 boroughs Brass monkey ruled

    block parties were a big thing and basement parties every where,
    and if you could huslte, that was better then strong lines to meet sisters.

    I don't remember much.....
    Tube tops
    Not being allowed to wear my hair in an afro because my Mommie said it was undignified
    And those really short shorts that were one color and trimmed out with bias tape another color
    And... Dallas. My mother made the world stop on Friday nights at 10 pm.

    And Ankur... NOGE is still building. That hasn't changed through the decades and if you find yourself in Allah's Garden, I invite you to a Parliament. We hold them the last Sunday of the month at the Wisdom hour.
