400 Years: 1619 Project review

400 Years: 1619 Project review

August 26, 2019

August 2019 we must commemorate the first 20-30 West Africans who were forced into perpetual bondage this month in 1619. Peabody award recipient and MacArthur Genius Fellow Nikole Hannah-Jones lead a group of journalist, writers, and poets to create a journalistic piece of work they simply call the 1619 Project distributed through New York Times Magazine. I read several significant quotes from Nikole's introductory essay. This is a moment where we honor our ancestors and become more aware of how their struggle brought us to a place where we speak louder, dream bigger, and reach higher. Below are direct links to the piece as well as additional teaching aids and link to the official podcast accompanying the project. Thanks for listening please Rate, Review, Subscribe and Share.

Taylor breaks down how this is a time for women to stand up in their worth and live a little better yet live a lot more because the summer is looking bleak more like lukewarm...

This week I introduce my new format: 

- Twitter Check In 

- Praise Em' Shoutouts 

-The Topic/Convo 

- Ask King

- Send it On 

The topic should be obvious, seeing how there is this strange craze of clout chasing with Kroger sales items, its stranger world we live in but stranger things oddly have happened on the internet in the pursuit of clout I ask why do people want attention in this way is it society or do we all just want to go viral... Listen and Enjoy .

 Been away because of those irritable creative blocks so, in the act of being optimistic why not make a negative a positive and create content on the very topic. I looked to our favorite resource Google to come across a article linked below by Susan K. Perry Phd., we must be cousins, but I go through tips of getting through creative blocks and highlighted my everyday life blocks that I believe impede progress, I believe this is a helpful one for us all enjoy...
