A celebration of African
and culture in the Americas
As I wrote in a poem before, "I want to dance nakedto an African drumbeat(But there better be a cello, too),because this is a poem about you. . ."
I like that. You seem to keep your poetry on wraps. How often do you post your poetry? My favorite little African Instrument is the (mucapata)or thumb piano. It makes a really nice sound.
Stephen,How are you posting your pics? Why won't the blogger feature work w/ mine (it's mind boggling!) This is just lovely...Oh, how I would love to learn to play the cello!Peace,Bay
Thanks Bay! When you are ready to make a new post there is a little blue window next to the spell check on the menu bar (where you find font, color, etc.). When you press that button it allows you to post pictures.
Yeah, I know! That's the frustrating part! I'm doing the right thing...blogger even goes so far as to tell me it's uploading my pics...but nothing! I'll have to keep trying. It' the weirdest thing...thanks, anyway...Bay
I wanted to tell you that I loved this painting!
Yes, I love it too. It is by an South African artist named, Frederico Cheque Nolha. The subject actually doesn't look that different from the lady I dedicated the poem to, but she stated that her mouth is different. :)Thanks for stopping by.
who is the artist???
Hello Professor. the artist name is Frederico Cheque Nolha. You can purchase his work and others at http://www.insideafricanart.com. Check it out!
all I know of Biko is what I saw when I watched Denzel Washington play out his life in Cry Freedom...
Solemn Reverie- the book by I have featured by Donald Woods is a good source. There are others as well. One of my favorite is, "I Write What I Like." You should check it out. Thanks for stopping in. I will do the same.
