    I can think of no better evidence expressing the glorious legacy of Black Women more so than the historical records. These historical records, however, are not always in order, complete or even accurate due to the testimonies of some who say they are historians.

    This is where science comes in. One must remain mindful that articulating history is a scientific method and for that reason it must be approached with certain techniques in order to ensure that truth is revealed. Sometimes, well most of the time, truth is concealed in plain view...in linguistics; that is, words, phrases and expressions. This is an area where a lot of hidden treasures, secrets if you will, about Black Women are hidden.

    Take the word Lesbian for example. Yes, I know what you might think it means and definitley what it connotes in this era due to prevailing assumptions. It should be clearly noted however the connotation we are familiar with is recent (circa 1800s) whereas the word itself is ancient.

    Lesbian comes from the word Lesbos (also also spelled Lesvos). Lesbos is a small island sandwiched between Turkey and Greece and is considered to be part of Greece.

    First, what is not well-known about this word Lesbian is this was an island of black people in the Ancient World along with Sparta.

    Secondly, this Island, Lesbian, was known to have the most beautiful Black Women in that region of the northern Aegean Sea.

    One of the first most beautiful poetesses was born on this Greek Island. Her name was Sappho. Despite what false imagery you are given, this Queen was black. And her work had been mistranslated as a support to re-define what true Lesbians are. But that's for another discourse. What we should know now is that Sappho and others like her, was not only beautiful but extremely wise and intelligent orators who could gather crowds of thousands. She taught the glorification of Black Women just like those Queens in Ephesus were doing under Queen Di-Yanna (Diana).

    Sappho was a lesbian, meaning she was a beautiful Black Woman from Lesbos Island who happened to be a poetess writing very powerful work and inspired the young Black Queens in their beauty, intelligence and sophistication. She was so stunningly beautiful and talented that other cities around hers had her face carved in their coins.

    There were regular beauty contest held between the Lesbian maidens and those beautiful Black Women from the nearby Island of Tenedos:

    Special beauty contests were held regularly in Lesbos as well as in the neighboring island of Tenedos. The ground taken at these contests was that beauty was as deserving of honor as skill in athletics or courage in battle. The victor was doubtless crowned with myrtle as in other similar contests among the Greeks. The beauty of the women of Lesbos is ofetn referred to in early times...[Mary Mills Patrick. Sappho and the Island of Lesbos. (Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1914), page 78].

    Again, the original term Lesbian automatically would conjure up a Black Woman from the Island of Lesbos. For those women in the Ancient World who lived in Lesbos, it was a badge of honor and actually a boasting right that you come from that region. It would be synonomous in saying that you are a Black Woman who comes from a Greek Island overflowing with pageant Queens, glamour icons and top models.

    (Obviously a black man's dream).

    Clearly we see then another pristine example of the modification and migration of words and concepts divested from Black Women.

    This was okay...but if you really want the answer as to why Black Women would separate themselves away from Black men, knowing that we are opposites attracted to each other, you have to go back thousands of years until you reach the truth of just what we are as men and how we got here and what we were like at that time that forced our women to form their own societies all over the globe. Right now you're just nipping at the iceberg.

    I agree with you my dear warrior-scholar Brotha. In fact, it doesn't matter what or how much data we present to the people because any of it will not even begin to tell the glorious essence of our Black Queens. But this particular information was just to throw a note out to the researchers here who may not have been familiar with the real meaning of the word Lesbian. I want the Queens to know what the word originally means and how it had been taken possession of by certain forces and used outside and away from its original meaning.

    I want them to know that originally Lesbian means beautiful Black Woman.

    I'm sure it's a very difficult task on the real for some to be able to wrap their minds around the real definition of Lesbians. I've actually been aware of it for only several years and when I found out Lesbians was referencing stunningly beautiful Black Women, my interest went through the roof.

    I'm still amazed today how many people use that concept innocently not being aware of its true meaning. I am even more so concerned by those who know its meaning (certain historians) but they continue to use it in modern colloquialism. But I charge them with deceit. We have to because like I was stating earlier when these words are used to conceal yet another avenue about the glory of our Black Women...they gotta be guilty.

    I have reason to believe that initially Lesbos was an island filled only with Black Women. Understand that this is not strange or weird because many ancient civilizations only consisted of Black Women. Take the Amazons for instance. And you may ask...What about men? How did they get their groove on? As for the Amazons it is recorded that they would go seek the Brothas in nearby villages who they desired. And when they mated, they ghost on them cats lol. And I know that must have hurt the feelings of our dear Brothas because the Amazons were not only known for their asyemmetrical battle skills, but they too were known to be very beautiful women.

    There is great information waiting to be told regarding these Black Lesbians.

    True knowledge is self taught thru diligent, deep research; therefore, it is obvious that both Brother K and Perfection are sated at this level of their research and conclusions ---in which case you might want to start your own journey to quench your own thirst about your own specific inquiry, Brother Philly ---rather than expecting anyone to handfed you, LOL!
