Daily Toast

Image
Peace FAM: Daily we gather aroung the "virtual community fire" known as the internet to lift our glasse to salute those who came before us. I decided that we needed to create a ritual where we lift up our personal Ancetors. My personal favorite part of libations has always been where we salute those ancestors that we rose from, and I feel that often we overlook them for the bigger names that we learn in our classes. I wanted to set a space and a time where we focused exclusively on our persoanl ancestors. In my studies I have learned that "hell (at least the closest thing we had to a hell) for an African was being forgotten." That is why I am diligent about making sure that we mention there names every morning. What started as me celebrating my ancestors turned into building up a community list, and group of people that have introduced the concept of Toasting into their lives.  Through this process which has been going on everyday for the last 17 months we have i

Why #kwanzaa365 is on GNJ

Image
Peace Tribe: In GNJ we practice our principles 7 days a week. We are in a constant state of Nationbuilding. We have decided to take possesion of one of most important elements in this world, time. We have taken possession of our time, and using our principles we have structured our days into a weapon for liberation. Since days of the week are used, I figured we might as well put the principle of Kujichagulia to work, and define the days in a way that will empower us and our children. By taking possession of the days of the week, we symbolicly take control of our time, and with that our lives. We use the power to define to change  the titles of the days of the week into something that we can use to keep us grounded in our culture. Rather than calling on the names that have been given to us we use the Nguzo Saba. This plugs us into our principles which empowers us. For those of us who take this serious, the principles are more than something that we recite during the Kwanzaa. These pr

Join the Tribe "GNJ"

Peace FAM It is a pleasure to sit  down and struggle through a post, I have not been posting on my blog because of all the shows and other activities. I stay busy building a legacy, it is my responsibility to leave a foundation for those that come behind me. I am striving to blaze a trail. I believe that we owe it to our personal Ancestors to celebrate them daily, and this is why I have chosen to start the "Daily Toast". For those that have Ancestors that they would like to add to our list feel free to send your list to us by texting #dailytoast to 614-300-1875. You will receive a form that will allow you to add yourself to GNJ's phonebook. You also be able to put yourself on our various list and I will take some time to explain the list here: *Our #gnj list is the #dailytoaster list. These are Family members that receive all information about what is going in with GNJ as well as within the Conscious Community here in Columbus. This group recieve text for all shows and

Belonging To A Conscious Community (Tribing Up)

Image
Peace FAM: I spend a lot of time thinking about our communtiy, and how to best structure it so that we can build something that is lasting. I truly believe in legacy, and understand that I am responsible for the next 7 generations at least. This is why I get up and do my show, because I am trying to add value to my community and build it. For me this is a lifestyle and as uncomfortable as it can be sometimes I know that it is my responsibilty. I have to reach out and build with like minded folks, as well as battle with some that disagree, but the conversation must be waged. I believe that if we do nothing we are condeming our futre generations to continues servitude to a system that will always put their needs last. We must develop structures that will defend our future, and demand from the powers that be, what is owed to us. We must build instituitons that are for us, and controled by us if not, we will end up as a foot note in history. Human beings are social creatures, and that is

The Path Of The Warrior

Image
Peace FAM:  Sitting here on this beautiful Holy Day that has been set aside for one of our Ancestor Martin Luther King, I can't help but to reflect on the warrior path. There are many misconception about this concept, and many people are probably confused on why I would write an article talking about the warrior path & mentioning MLK. For me personally The Honorable Martin Luther King is a perfect example of  a person on the warrior path. Most of us define the idea of warrior by what we can do, but the warrior path is about what we won't do. I have been quoting Amos Wilson for the last few weeks, and I ran across a definition that he gave for manhood, but this definition is not limited to men. This idea that he puts out is good for warriorship as well. He states that "being a man is the mastery of impulses", I believe that this is the key to warriorship as well. Being able to face pain, and a ability to suffer are all good traits for a  warrior, but all of them

Folktales As Tools Of Liberation

Peace FAM: I'm sitting at my computer preparing for my presentation to the village and I just need to get a few thoughts down, and figured I was over due for another post on my blog. It has been a long time since I have sat down to actually write, I am use to talking to the cameras as I stream my thoughts, but at this moment I need to organize my thoughts, and prepare to talk to my larger family. It is always a humbling thing for me to be invited to share my perspective. In order to get my thoughts across in the proper way I want to use this platform to construct a discussion about the power of tales, myths and legends, and their importance to our freedom struggle and personal growth. Folktales are just stories that have moved beyond the first teller of the tale. Folktales are born when a story grows beyond the original teller. The tell and the characters of the story grow and move into the pantheon of the people from which the tell was told. These stories act as conduit of info

Fermented Cabbage Stew

Image
This week I focused on showing you how to ferment some foods. I chose to start with cabbage, because it is easy and very healthy. I decided to add other food to it just to create a stew like feel. I was planning to use this food to help me break my fast, as well as give you some useful information that you can use to take some control of the food you eat. Even if you do not grow your oen food you can take charge of the nutrients you get from your food. If you cannot afford frsh vegitables, and only can get canned they can be fermented as well. I love the fermenting process because it gives the consumer some power. You get to decide what flavor you want to bring out, how long you want it to last, and etc.. Check out the video and take some time to do some of your own experiments, and feel free to share. I am always looking for tips and ideas to try.
