Where intelligence is sexxy!
This Sunday June 14, 2015 I attended my first Odunde Festival in Philadelphia, PA. I have to say I enjoyed myself greatly and look forward to next year's festival. The food was great, the people were stylish, and the vibes were nice. I recommend everyone check it out. Below are a few pictures I took at the festival. I hope you enjoy them.
This discussion asks the questions, "Should African-Americans Create Their Own Spiritual System?" With all of the divisions in modern religious systems, and all of their historical shortcomings, is it time for African-Americans to design and develop a spiritual system devoid of all of the shortcomings of the old world religious traditions? If so, what would it look like? What would be the base values? How would we structure and implement it? How do we address God? Do we need God for our new spiritual tradition? We will address these questions in a dynamic panel discussion of enlightened young minds (TBA). Please share with your friends, family, and colleagues and let's see what our brilliant minds can come up with.
A quick glance at San Antonio based designer Daiquonne Lanier will give you the impression that he has IT; that special something that the French like to describe as “Je ne sais quoi”. There is a sense that he is going places. He is bright-eyed and eager, yet poised. He also manages - despite his confidence - to be impeccably mannered and humble. Further confirmation comes in the form of witnessing his design work.
