"The worker must work for the glory of his handiwork, not simply for pay; the thinker must think for truth, not for fame."
---Dr. W.E.B. DuBois

"The mere imparting of information is not education."

"Those who have no record of what their forebears have accomplished lose the inspiration which comes from the teaching of biography and history. "

"I am ready to act, if I can find brave men to help me. "
---Dr. Carter G. Woodson

Obama Supporters Ain't Nothing To F**k With...Check Out The Videos...

Derrick Ashong For Vice President!!!
Tha Artivist Writes:
Hey Fam,
Check out this well informed brother, Derrick Ashong, on why he is supporting Barack Obama...The interview was done before the Obama-Clinton Debate in Hollywood California, several days before Super Tuesday (February 5, 2008)...The interviewer thought he was going to set the young brother up ala Hardball With Chris Matthews style...However, it was the interviewer that was at a loss for words!!! Hear this brother with the silver tongue and quick wit deliver a Joe Louis size uppercut to the racist stereotypes often supported by the American Mainstream Media and Pop Culture concerning Black Youths:

The Interview of Derrick Ashong

NY Philharmonic Uses Music As Welcomed Foreign Policy For North Korea...

Tha Artivist Writes:

Music is your own experience, your own thoughts, your wisdom. If you don't live it, it won't come out of your horn. They teach you there's a boundary line to music. But, man, there's no boundary line to art. ~ Charlie "Bird" Parker

I thoroughly enjoyed the article...I may be biased, but the power of art is sometimes taken for granted...If you can learn the song of a people you can learn their history: Their pains, joys, sorrows and triumphs...

DuBois call this phenomenon The Sorrow Songs...

When Poland was fighting for liberation from the Soviet Union, jazz, an art born out of American Apartheid, was being played...

During the Civil Rights Movement White folks were doing the twist, in the 20s they were doing the Charleston, in the 1910s they were doing the fox trot and at the turn of last century they were doing the cakewalk, all are products of the Black experience...

My hero and the subject of my first book James Reese Europe a.k.a. The Jazz Lieutenant used music to keep his men from getting lynched in Spartanburg, SC at a time when Black people were getting lynched every day and a half in this country...Some victims were even in full military uniform...He also used it to spread goodwill, joy and love throughout continental Europe after the brutal destruction of World War One...

We are a Blues People...

When you all get some time really listen to some Duke Ellington...Duke was a historian who used the gift of song to record and preserve the history of Black People in the African Diaspora...

My small salute to Black History Month...
