"The Earth is our inheritance. But unfortunately we must still go out to take it each day, simply to live from it, 'with compassion without compromise,' as Nzinga Ratibisha Heru says. 'Seize The Time,' as Bobby Seale says, like ninjas out for 'matunda ya kwanza, the first fruits' as Maulana Karenga says, in Swahili, in real free 'familyhood,' not fake matrix ones; 'Ujamaa,' as Julius Nyerere says. So that we can 'grow some,' as Fannie Lou Hamer says. 'So, ask somebody that you know, where is your land?!, if you want that you gotta show that to me by not somebody else's actions but, whose?, yours,' as Afeni Shakur says. As I would say."

kehlani — altar



Altar (Lyrics written by Pop Wansel, Ambrรฉ, Daoud, Kehlani. Produced by Daoud & Pop Wansel) 4:01

"Fresh white flowers and a new tea light. Nine cups of water, still water. Soon, I'll see your face. Don't know why I ever thought you were far away. I shoulda known better. If I set a flame and I call your name. I'll fix you a plate, we can go to dinner. We can share a meal your way. And I'll play you the songs that you used to play. So I put you on the altar, stay just a little bit longer. Laid it out for ya, thought I felt you before. Now you're closer. Closer. So I put you on the altar, stay just a little bit longer. Laid it out for ya, thought I felt you before. Now you're closะตr. Closer. Holdin' on to things you told me. Holdin' on to dreams you showะตd me. Holdin' on to anything from you. That you've been leavin' here. Now I believe, I swear. I can smell your perfume. Pickin' up your signal like a phonebooth. Keepin' you alive and I do it 'cause I want to. If I set a flame and I call your name. I'll fix you a plate, we can go to dinner. We can share a meal your way. And I'll play you the songs that you used to play. So I put you on the altar, stay just a little bit longer. Laid it out for ya, thought I felt you before. But now you're closer (Closer). Closer (Now you're closer). So I put you on the altar, stay just a little bit longer. Laid it out for ya, thought I felt you before. But now you're closer (Closer). Closer (Closer)."

on pan-african agriculture & industry for my daughter: great-great grandpa james (big jim) a. godette's letters from jail to james weldon johnson



exclusive feature
James A. Godette
(circa early 1900s)
2022, Minneapolis/Jamaica: Hughes-Kasoro Family Archives.

"To Mr. James W. Johnson, contributing editor of the New York Age:

"Sir, I notice an article in the last issue of your valuable paper. In title, Harness The Dollar, an I must say, it was appealing to me. That was my lifelong dream as to how could my race better their condition. From a politician, social, and financial standpoint so that we could be recognized as a race and demand our constitutional rights. I had this figured out 20 years ago and not being a man of education I didn’t no (sp) how to put it before my people and let it drop but this have inspired me and I shall lay my plans square before you for consideration because I see that my people have got the spirit and this is the way I layed out my plans then and now as follows.

"Get some loyal race man like yourself to whom has the confidence of all his people, call a committee of honest and loyal race men like Fred. R. Moore, R.S. Abbott, and our Ida B. Wells and form rules and lay out plans for a big race enterprise that would be a direct benefit to the whole negro race from a financial standpoint then lay the matter square before the people and tell them the (sp) you wanted 5,000,000 stockholders to sign a contract to take 10 shears (sp) each at $10.00 a shear (sp) and to pay down $10.00 in which is one shear and then pay $1.00 every three months thereafter until the remainding (sp) $90.00 dollars is paid and if they have not the $10.00 at hand, let them pay down $1.00 dollar and gave them 90 days to pay the remainding (sp) $9.00 dollars so that won’t no hardship on no one. Isn’t that easy. Think of it.

"Then when this is done it will give this committee $50,000,000 dollars spot cash to do business and no one hurt and $5,000,000 dollars every three months thereafter for 22 years and six month. That would put this business on cash bases (sp) and wholly independent of any one from a financial standpoint you would be under no obligation to no man or set of men outside of your race and for various reasons I will suggest to committee where this great plan should be. As history tells us gunboats runned up to Cairo, Ill. during the civil war, I feel that steam ships could run there now. So I suggest that this committee should buy a big tract of land somewhere below Cairo 3 or 4 thousand acres for this big plant and a city then buy big stone quarries along the river and big brick yards, saw mills, an plaining (sp) mills. Buy 7 or 8 big barges and 3 or 4 powerful life boats to play between New Orleans and St. Paul and Chicago and also buy two big steam boats then call in your skill and unskill (sp) labor and put them to work.

witch hazel, hamamelis virginiana, hamamelidaceae: nature's first aid medicine



exclusive feature
Madeline Lafontant
{Minneapolis, MN:USA & Jamaica}
(2021). The Liberator Magazine.

Hamamelis virginiana, Hamamelidaceae, also known as witch hazel, is nature's first aid medicine. It contains one of the most common therapeutic properties in nature, astringent. When used externally, it functions as vulnerary, meaning it promotes the healing of tissues and wounds. This remedy is one of the most sustainable and versatille bathing practices to clear and detoxify. The bark of the plant is distilled for use. For millennia, people have produced extract by boiling the stems of the shrub and using the decoction to treat swellings, inflammations, and even provide soothing relief to tumors. Northern Native Americans use extract of witch hazel extensively for medicinal purposes and during ceremonies and rituals of purification. "The Osage" Native Americans "called it Shemba and made a poultice out of the bark to treat tumours, sores, and ulcers" (Erichsen-Brown, 1979).

polyfidelity, (bisexual)polygyny, & intimate, complementary extended-family: the realistic, eternal africana-indigenous solution to disharmony & oppression



In the following email about polygamy/(bi)polygyny/polyfidelity, a reader, sharing her thoughts after an individual study on the subject, wonders if a modified or resurrected, egalitarian version of the practice might be an immediate solution to and defense against persistent forms of politico-economic oppression such as greed.


(Above: Trinity lifestyle333)



(Above: Me Bae and J)


(Above: Throuple Trouble)

She specifically mentioned an example where perhaps a father has children with different women yet those women choose to get along and foster and cultivate their relationships with each other for the purpose of making sure the children feel at home even when they are with their "step" mothers. In fact, I'm sure this type of thing happens pretty regularly already. Why is society negatively obsessed with the imagined pleasure of multiple-peopled long-term intimate relationships if parenting or fostering land is the shared primary purpose?




(Above: The Co-Wives)

I would assume the reverse of this would also be something to consider, although the majority of these type of multi-parent situations that I know of involve women sharing a common link to one man. But given the incarceration rates (or unjust incarceration laws) affecting black men, this is no surprise.


(Above: Follown Yahshua)

Like she suggests, the practice must be shielded by a sub-culture bubble from the mainstream norms. As a matter of fact, Africana diaspora nations may offer more fertile soil. But the fundamental concept is sound--multiple parents who share a common father or mother spouse making those ties of accountability stronger to each other. Classicists of all cultural stripes point out that bisexual polygyny was an ancient norm to foster and reify permanent inter-generational collaboration, interdependence, and harmony among familial codependents. The internet is full of loving examples of poly triads, throuples, threesome relationships, &c. As long as there is some sort of serious classic cultural understanding and appreciation taking place, alongside relentless communication and emotional therapy, these relationships should thrive.


(Above: Davis Trilogy)

And maybe the women wouldn't all want to get married to a brother, but perhaps they might define for themselves a higher definition or title for their mutual relationship than "baby mamas/daddys" as to hold each other accountable for each other's and the collective responsibilities; belonging to the shared family unit collectively. What's needed isn't matriarchy or patriarchy; every child knows it doesn't want to be patronized or matronized, just balanced in tune with the cradle.



(Above: Ayanna)

Here's what she had to say:

"I stumbled upon a blog last week about Polygamy, its African and biblical origins, and as a possible alternative for single-parent homes so prevalent today, and the black family in western culture. Reading what everyone had to say was really interesting and got me thinking a lot deeper on the subject. Perhaps a modified version could be the cure for the destruction. At first when I read it I was like, 'hell nah that's some crazy cult mess,' then I thought about my current situation.


(Above: The Rise Family)

"Neither of us are "married" to him but the three of us are bonded as a parental unit and have the common goal of love, nurturing, and growing. Which in theory loosely resembles a polygamist or closed polyamorist union. The basic idea of it can't be ignored as we all strive to regain and redefine the 'village' culture in western society. I think it would be interesting for The Liberator Magazine readers."

The Last Generation of Black People

The opening words of The Liberator Magazine’s first book release fittingly belong to historian Dr. John Henrik Clarke: “A people’s name should link them to land, history, and culture. ‘Black’ tells you how you look, but not who you are.”

So begins The Last Generation of Black People (The Liberator Magazine, 2012) — a biographic, ethnographic compilation of critical research in consciousness and culture that marks more than a decade of independent print journal publishing. The theme and namesake were born out of a recognition that a mutation had occurred; from the multi-generational experiences bracketed by post-slavery reconstruction and the crack epidemic of the 80s, into fully-commercialized notions of “Blackness.” At this pivotal juncture, the generation of the post-crack era could either go the way of an historically-amnesic Blackness or embrace the potential for a generational rebirth and time-signature realignment with African land, history, and culture.

“In order to proceed confidently with the work of remaking lost connections in our collective consciousness there ought to be sober acceptance, as a whole, however long it takes, of both what we are and what we are not,” said publisher Brian Kasoro. “It follows that it may be a good thing to cap an era of rhetorical confusion.”

The Last Generation of Black People is 138 compact and perfect-bound pages with a matte full-color finish, adorned with commissioned double-cover artwork, reprinted on limited edition t-shirts.
