MEXICANS OF AFRICAN DESCENT ESTABLISHED LOS ANGELES ON THIS DAY IN 1781
The Los Angeles Pobladores, or “townspeople,” were a group of 44 settlers and four soldiers from Mexico who established the famed city on this day in 1781 in what is now California. The settlers came from various Spanish castes, with over half of the group being of African descent.

While there is a lot of appropriate rage about Ferguson right now, the killing of John Crawford, III is getting less attention than it deserves. I put Shaun King’s tweets and history lesson on the matter in chronological order for easier consumption.

You really should be following Shaun King on Twitter.

THIS IS SAD.

Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan inspired awe with their vocal prowess.  Ella – with her perfect pitch and unerring sense of time – could reproduce any instrumental jazz riff, and Sarah – with her multi-octave range and ultra-flexible voice – could change octave and color on a single note.  Carmen, however, could bring a tear to the eye or a lump to the throat, with her reading of a lyric. That was her great talent.  She combined the ability to project the emotional connotations of a song with a musical intelligence that was derived in part from her knowledge of the piano.

Lovely Words To Live By:

inspired by toni
Toni Morrison - Author Pictures, Images and Photos


"...to be given dominion over another is a hard thing; to wrest dominion over another is a wrong thing; to give dominion of yourself to another is a wicked thing."
-A Mercy [toni morrison]
I often wonder how much thought we as human beings put into our own well-being. It is no secret that we have been the biggest destructive force on the face of the earth thus far and that in destroying our surrounding environment...we are also destroying ourselves. So I guess we're really self-destructive creatures. But that's exactly the type of behavior I want to rid myself of. It is one thing for an outside force to constantly bring harm upon my person, but when I'm the one inflicting the harm upon myself--what does that say about me? So I've begun to work on a new resolve following Ms. Morrison's wisdom. I will no longer give dominion of myself to destruction...allowing myself to be defeated from within...I believe I am far too precious for that. We are meant to be free in every way...and to be any other thing would indeed be a very wicked thing...especially if we are enslaved by ourselves.
