A celebration of
and culture in the African Diaspora
My dear,This Write a Poem Everyday thing is SO NOT going to be a challenge for you! What an amazing crafting of words and imagery.See you tomorrow!
Thank you. I going to try and write something down every day. Cool. I'll see you tomorrow. :)
Beautifully written. A reminder of what our ancestors endured during the years of slavery...for the sake of our future generation.
A powerful piece, Stephen."Map of Pain" : Perfect words
Stephen, you have finally given words to this image that has haunted me from the first time I saw it. Thank you. He has not suffered in vain because one of his "descendants" has given his pain a voice. This is an act of redemption.Blessings,Geoffrey
The first time I read about how this 'map' was created, I had to force my tears back in, I was in the public library and was reading a rather unusual history book. Somehow, this map's been 'diluted' in the telling of Caribbean history.Have you seen that documentary Prince Among Slaves? My mother can't stop talking about it.
Mindspill-Yes, a painful reminder. Thanks.Will-Thanks, I'm still moving forward.Geoffrey-I'm feeling your words. Thank you. This picture has always haunted me as well. GG-I haven't seen that film. I'll look it up on Amazon. Thank you.
And I thought words coud not add to this photograph... I was wrong. Of all people, I should have known better. I'm always learning from you.Peace and Love,Alizé (LoversA.blogspot.com)
What can you tell me about the origin of this photo?Alizé (LoversA.blogspot.com)
Xavier-Thanks. Actually, I don't know the origin of this photo. I will see if I can find out. I need to activate my Library of Congress research card. Peace~
