    I knew Ra Un Nefer personally and told him I would contribute my time to do murals , in the Dean st Armory, between Underhill and Washington ave, all through the late 80s !
    unlike these youtube street scholars, he gave free classes on nutrition, Kemetic and African history , to the Black community on the reg, and had a boss book store , health food store nd weekend vegie restaurant!
    But that was before we in Brooklyn became infected by a Cultural Virus in the 90s and didnt give a **** about a knowledge of self anymore

    Not to nitpick here but you must have forgot that Bergen Street and Baltic Street do not intersect anywhere in Brooklyn. Baltic Street parallels Bergen Street 4 blocks to the South from 5th Avenue to one block East of I-278 a/k/a Gowanus Expressway. There used to be a Baltic Avenue in East New York in the 1800's but none of us were around. Ever hang out at Gowanus Houses? How about Red Hook Houses? I used to have a girlfriend who had a brother that rolled with The Jolly Stompers at Langston Hughes projects. I remember the Chaplains and Corsair Lords back in the 50's. I forgot which gang rolled out of Kingsborough Projects and which gang rolled out of Albany Projects or was it Brevoort? Ever heard of them?
