Badass Misty Knight

Recently, I read a comic about what I thought would be the best tie in for the Marvel universe to include an Afro American character. The woman is named Misty Knight and for the life of me I cannot understand why she isn’t in more episodes. Her story stems from a risky job, which was being a New York City Bomb Detective; to a grueling life juggling love and super-abilities. Her character is both strong and beautiful, which is why I needed to give her a little coverage.Mistyknight0.png Her story immediately takes a sharp turn when her arm is blown off due to a terrorist bomb and she’s forced to leave her job, and her once normal life. Misty is then left in the care of Charles Xavier where she rooms with Jean Grey and receives a Cybernetic arm courtesy of Iron Man.

arms.pngMisty fights to the death in battles and is so fierce that she has even beaten Sabertooth! She fought and had a draw with Ironfist, which resulted in them seeing each other in a different light. The two started dating. Their relationship was rocky at best, which led to her on-again-off-again relationship with Powerman aka Luke Cage. Luke Cage is being picked up by Netflix right now and will begin running shortly……so go catch it! Hahaha I couldn’t resist.

If you’re into comic books, Marvel, or sexy women comic figures dressed in scantily clad suits, like Misty, then you should check out WorldofBlackHeroes or  BlackGirlNerds for more of her story.

I was so moved by this character that I decided to make a little video on her life story. I am placing it on Youtube so that maybe more will learn something and gain strength in themselves. With that being said…..heres a link to the video.   Afro Girls Need Love Tooooo Thanx!

Black Friday approacheth

If Black Friday is important to you, so should be the element of logic. Most want to run to the nearest mall with the Best Buy and the Bath and Body works. But what if I told you that you can shop your heart out on Black Friday AND help the community? Logically, this seems to be more economically sound with the way overseas shipping is set up.

Why not shop locally and get super creative gifts? This helps the mom and pop stores in your community and you will definitely buy something no one else has.

It was hard to get my list together of small businesses because there were so many. My real interest was natural body oils, lotions, soaps and fragrances (spoiler alert). But then I was introduced to stylish clothes sites, handcrafted picture frames, and coloring books. I have narrowed down my Black Friday list to a couple natural sistas who run Black owned Businesses. Most are in my immediate area but some are online, too.

The HeArt of Brooklyn

I wish to seek as much art out of Brooklyn as possible. And there’s so much here that even the Brooklyn Museum opens its doors for free every first Saturday of the month.

When the weekend comes, I’m sure everyone wants to just go to a happening club and party all night. But museums and open mics appeal to me more.

I enjoy being slapped with culture and overwhelmed with international deities. Learning about different histories intrigues me and that is why I’m releasing my poem entitled, A Ride.

When I read it’s like a ride, a roller coaster ride

That’s better with a friend but I’m my own best guide

I like to see the world. The past, present and future

It’s like learning about my mom, and all the moms before her

I can travel across the land, see beauty far away

To a time where Amber Rose earrings were in play

Take me there museum! I wana go there today

Give me something to remember when I’m old and grey

Art can be conceived in many ways, hell it’s always in our faces!!! And when I read about a possible museum being erected in Brooklyn based around African art, I jumped for joy. More influence is needed from the African culture, I believe, in Brooklyn.

Maybe having an institution like this right in town, can bring our community back to its roots.

musuemEric Edwards has been a collector for the past 44 years, and feels as though his life mission is to show off all these wonderful pieces of history. Mr Edwards keeps his 1,600 piece collection in his Brooklyn home along with antique clocks and baseball cards.

With such tight space, the vast collection of artifacts need a new home which is why Mr. Edwards is proposing to erect a museum in his hometown. He has started a KickStarter campaign to help fund his endeavors. The goal is to raise $35,000 and debut The Cultural Museum of African Art by the end of the year, in Bed-Stuy. The entire collection is estimated at a whopping $10 Million.

If the museum development goes as planned it will also house space for studio rentals, student programs, and will also offer free DNA testing for people seeking to trace their ancestry.

“Councilmember Robert Cornegy has suggested 375 Stuyvesant Avenue—a Renaissance Revival mansion on the corner of Decatur Street in Bed-Stuy—as a possible home for the future museum”, states the Gothamist. Im in high anticipation!!  

If you would like to Donate to the cause then go to the KickStarter page

The Concert was Great

image

After going to a free concert in the middle of Prospect Park I feel as though I could be a Superstar. Sure it takes hard work and talent, but Chaka Khan sang inspiration into me last night.
With her enchanting lyrics and soothing beats she could sing the alphabet and make it sound sexy. That kind of vibe spread through the crowd like wildfire and we all loved it. Ms. Khan sang some jazz jams that made everybody within earshot croon. And when she got to the hits we all almost melted!
Chaka put life back into me. Watching her perform reminded me of my passion for acting and being on stage. With her dancing moves and expressionistic words she turned the stage into a Chaka Khan juke box. Moving and sounding just like the original recordings! She had the same fire she had from the ’70s. It was magical.
I only wish I could grace the stage like that as a performer.

The Launch is Upon Us

Yellow Submarines and Grapevines spread feverishly through my mind. Today is when I release them out of me and into the World! I’ll be writing full fledged articles about the goings ons as told to me through the Grapevine. Hopefully, I can release these demons.           The first order up for business is Dom Dom Dommmmmm

chakakChaka Khan’s appearance in Prospect Park 6/3!

Its going to be big, you guys. And best of all, the cover price is negotiable!

Yes, the Celebrate Brooklyn! Summer Concert Series works off of        donations, so the entry fee is whatever you have in your pocket.         I suggest bringing $3 for entrance at least. And yes, there will              be food. For an all over fun filled day bring about $30 for food, merchandise and cover charge.

I have included some rules of the event just so that no one is disappointed upon entry. Flip flops are appropriate, but there’ll be a lot of people so beware and be aware.
