Dreams, Mourning, and “Going to See a Man About a Mule.”

Dreams, Mourning, and “Going to See a Man About a Mule.”

Today is Friday, August 23, 2019. Please let me encourage you today: Don’t be overcome with fear, hatred and terror with the reports that are running wild. Look up and have hope. I’m having to do the same thing. When things get rough, I have to resist fighting with my emotions and my opinions. I have to use faith, hope, love and logic when my natural self would want to strike back at the naysayers. Pray for me, please. I’ll…

A Call for Peace On The Million Man Anniversary

A Call for Peace On The Million Man Anniversary

It’s been 20 years since the Million Man March called Black men to Washington, DC for a “day of atonement.” The eyes of the world were on what for many was hoped to be the next great March on Washington, picking up on the dream MLK unwrapped in 1963. So, last week, nearly 20 years later, Minister Louis Farrakhan, Pastor Jeremiah Wright and others again drew crowds to Washington, D.C., under the banner “justice or else.” Or else what? And…

Put the Political Strife Out to Pasture

Put the Political Strife Out to Pasture

I have few regrets in my life. At the top of the list is the demise of two children in my womb, and one miscarriage. Next to that, I regret having said to a group of peers that my Uncle M. L. (Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.) was a Republican. I said that without having all the facts. My Grandfather, Dr. Martin Luther King, Sr. was a registered Republican. Uncle M. L. was an independent, who in his own words…

That dream saved my life long before ultrasound was invented! When I was born on January 22,…
