Our Legacy is Rarely Found in 'His'tory . . .

. . . And when it is, it is tempered to make little of the actual happenings. Dark skins are rendered pale and discoveries are credited to the pupils. Even religions leave out the original worshipers. This has gone on for centuries and sometimes it seems almost impossible to ebb the flow of mis-education.

This will end as we recognize our power. We know what it's like to be that Stranger In A Strange Land first hand. We don't need exotic offlanders to tell that story. Our power is in writing our own stories, telling of our families, writing down our advice, creating our own myths, magical worlds and fantasies to be filmed and shown to the world.

Start now. You are an agent of literary change.

SAVE THE DATE:
The 5th Annual Leimert Park Village Book Fair in Los Angeles is scheduled for Saturday, June 25th, from 10am to 6pm.
As in our previous festivals, the Book Fair will attract a large number of visitors to the Leimert Park Village for an entertaining day of readings, poetry, and musical entertainment.  The centerpiece will be the Authors Tent where we will gather our community of authors to share and sell their works to the public.
This year, 40 table spaces will be allocated under the Authors Tent to provide an attractive venue for you and your works.  We would like to invite you to reserve your spot under the Authors Tent as soon as possible to guarantee your spot.  The cost will be $125 for a table space.  The deadline for submission is Monday, May 2nd.
An Authors application can be found at our website at http://www.leimertparkbookfair.com/.  Additional details about the space and the event are posted on the application.  More information will be posted on the website.

The Perfect Fluid...

If collisions between small projectiles -- protons (p), deuterons (d), and helium-3 nuclei (3He) -- and gold nuclei (Au) create tiny hot spots of quark-gluon plasma, the pattern of particles picked up by the detector should retain some 'memory' of each projectile's initial shape. Measurements from the PHENIX experiment match these predictions with very strong correlations between the initial geometry and the final flow patterns.

Peace. As the post title says, (inspired by Rakim's greatest opening lines), this marks somewhat of a return. I have not posted in a long while, so here I am. I hope everyone whom I have not communicated with; are doing well. 

I will be checking in more often than not.

Peace.

The Diversity Track & Black Science Fiction Society Back For Dragoncon 2019

I just got news this week that the Diversity Track will be back for 2019 at DragonCon. I'm excited to be invited back for another groundbreaking event. Everyone associated with the first one this year knocked it out of the park! I could not ask for better volunteers, guests, photographers, moderators and participants.

Assault of the Mainstream

Posted by Turtel Onli on December 6, 2018 at 8:10am 1 Comment

Now that the Mainstream has tried and failed to take the life force outta the growing indie-Black age movement with its "afro-futuristic" blockbuster along with its here today-gone tomorrow great token Hero of Harlem, who among us is really about winning at  this challenge and profiting from the opportunities it presents?

Their best efforts to corner and control the Black Age is my proof that we are actually winning in this war for minds and market shares.....inspite of addictive  brand loyalty...the Black On Black boycott....and culturally based anti-intellectualisms.  I often present on panels.....over the years since 1992....at San Diego,,,,,Wizards.......C2E2.....on the Black Age or diversity....  Usually with a lame unprofessional uninformed person in charge.  Each time some hater stands up to taut how racist the Black Age is and how he of she gets so much more outta Manga/Anime'.

Sort of like all of the Black folks that spent 8 years complaining about…

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
