Woot!!   This week for the Cowboys, we should have won by more!!! The defense fail apart towards the end. The inconsistencies will keep us out of the playoffs for real ya'll Jerry Jones bought the Cowboys at the height of their splendor in the 80s, but the old school country boy raised in the old South, and I would bet most white dudes from this era have a "hooded" past. I would hope 80 year old Jerry, is different than this pie-faced kid in the 50s…   Send your music requests to Tnfroisreading@gmail.com and like the show on #amp Full playlist on iTunes Let's stream all I want for Christmas by Mariah Carey to #1 again!!     Ok so I couldn't wait…I went to watch Wakanda Forever at the IMAX….And recent commercials are revealing A LOT…   Tales from News, Reddit and Medium …Dating and Romance Over 50 (I do not vouch for the validity of these tales but if you have something wilder hit me up at tnfroisreading@gmail.com Just because you’re not getting it(sex) doesn’t mean you don’t want it…Ex-Real Housewife of nowhere Dorinda.

Spotlight Black Excellence

Cicely Tyson

Rest in Power 1924 to 2021, to a great lady, amazing actress, and strong woman. Who shared her craft with the world for almost 7 decades leaving us with a beautifully written memoir documenting the wild ride. An inspiration to generations of creatives to be the best with the tools given them.

Video Tribute to Cicely Tyson, TNFro Feb 1.

Amanda Gorman first youth poet Laureate for our country, and whose long poem soared to heights during the inauguration.

Now she has entered into a lucrative modeling contract and has a multi-part deal to publish her work all to be released in 2021!

The Hill We Climb is my site Chattabooks but her other works will not be released until September of 2021, and I will be sure to add.

Brandon Dudley is a hip hop inspired visual artist best known for portraiture

is showcased on RAW, an organization to serve independent artists with tools, resources, education and exposure needed to thrive and succeed in their creative careers.

History of Black History Month

Of Course I am going to highlight a book because this is a blog mostly about books. Four Hundred Souls, is a historical collection of stories from the African American community our experience in our words.

400 Souls Release Date Feb 2 2021

Summary from Amazon, The editors, Ibram X. Kendi and Keisha N. Blain, have assembled ninety brilliant writers, each of whom takes on a five-year period of that four-hundred-year span. The writers explore their periods through a variety of techniques: historical essays, short stories, personal vignettes, and fiery polemics. They approach history from various perspectives: through the eyes of towering historical icons or the untold stories of ordinary people; through places, laws, and objects. While themes of resistance and struggle, of hope and reinvention, course through the book, this collection of diverse pieces from ninety different minds, reflecting ninety different perspectives, fundamentally deconstructs the idea that Africans in America are a monolith—instead it unlocks the startling range of experiences and ideas that have always existed within the community of Blackness.  Promises to be a thought provoking read!

This month started out as a recognition of a week as far back as 1926 by the brilliant historian

Carter Woodson, Historian

and the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History then expanded to the entire month of February recognized since 1983 by every US President with the exception of the previous occupant in some meaningful way. The Library of Congress has a website, African American History Month, dedicated to the celebration and recognition from all Smithsonian and Endowment of the Arts and even the Holocaust Museum accurately preserving and recording our history for posterity. What is the threat behind this recognition when we have been present at every stage in the building of the country. Why not recognize our contribution as integral to the establishment of the United States.

Compelling because everyone points to the historical election of President Barack Obama to the Presidency of the United States and now Vice President Kamala Harris to the current administration. But, they both speak of influence of Shirley Chisholm, the first elected Black women from the 12th District of New York to Congress and then becoming the first Black woman to run for President in 1972.

Shirley Chisholm, NY Congresswoman

Can you imagine how much she was threatened by the Klan and every racist in this country? I can only wonder she couldn’t even safely campaign right where I live in TN now.

Everyone on the planet unless they live under a rock hears about Dr. Martin Luther King, icon, Civil Rights leader, and I played parts of his powerful, I Have a Dream Speech, on a recent podcast in celebration of his birthday in January. But do you know of a little known leader, Bayard Rustin?

Bayard Rustin, Activist Harlem NY

But it was Rustin who organized and strategized in the shadows. As a gay man who had controversial ties to communism, he was considered too much of a liability to be on the front lines of the movement. Nonetheless, he was considered to be one of the most brilliant minds, and served his community tirelessly while pushing for more jobs and better wages.
