Local Spotlight

Greetings All, As I’ve mentioned before in a previous post, I’m making a concerted effort to shoutout local businesses.

So, allow me to spotlight Jayrell’s…

Tacky’s Rebellion

Greeting’s Good People, For those of you who may be new to this blog and aren’t familiar with my posts, I’m a student of African history—which, in essence, is world history. The main reason why is because so much of it has been hidden from the textbooks and/or whitewashed in our universities, so researching the truth has inadvertently become…

“The secret knowledge and the secret spiritual stories of Kemet has been a fear in the Western Church.

Greetings All, I stated before in a previous post that I’ve recently relocated back to my stomping grounds (Charlotte, NC), and I plan on making a concerted effort to spotlight some of the amazing events, businesses, and news throughout the city.

Going Dark

Greetings Good People, I came across an article from the Business Insider that advised that Toys R Us will be closing all of its U.S. stores this year due to liquidation.

Words From The Wise: Dr. Myles Munroe

“A book is an idea container, it transmits ideas. The oppressor made sure that your parents could not read. That’s because books contain ideas, and the goal was, ‘you maintain oppression by the makings of ignorance.’” – Dr. Myles Munroe   Greetings Everyone, Divine Intervention must really be working in my favor, because I came…

Re-Education

“The educational system of a country is worthless unless it [revolutionizes the social order].
