Just saw this one on PBS' "The History Detectives." Very touching story about Douglas Roach, an African-American who volunteered to fight against the fascists during the Spanish Civil War. He was killed in action in 1938, I believe it was. His touching eulogy was written and delivered by his friend and comrade-in-arms, Sol Feldman. It's a sad and wonderful story.…Continue
Hey BSFS Family,
Following the lead of the very capable, talented and inspirational members here. I've decided to self-publish my own short stories. The first, In the Trenches, is now on sale at Amazon. Thanks to BSFS members Milton Davis and Carole McDonnell for an early critique of this…
So, you have a community of Black folks living on the backside of the moon without, for all practical purposes, anyone on Earth knowing that they're there. And, they've been there for four decades before they are "Discovered."
What kind of culture do they have?
What values govern their behavior?
What goals do they have and how are they determined?
Who decides the direction of the community's endeavors?
With Odin's secret South American base about to self-destruct, Dillon has only minutes to pull off his most daring escape yet! That's right, it's Chapter Eighteen of "Dillon and The Voice of Odin"!

"I can't believe what they called it; Vampirism. They even equated it with mysticism and the supernatural." The Doctor stood over the supine human form in commiseration with a Technician.
"How did the therapy even get to their planet?" The technician was interrupting a virtuality…
I did two positive things today.
1. I created a blog for myself called Half-Black, Half-Zebra (URL: angeecee.blogspot.com). The blog will be a place where I'm going to act all ignorant and stupid and dumb... If you are the type of person to become easily offended, then perhaps you shouldn't visit my blog. Hey, a sista has to vent some kind of way. :P
2. I created a store on…Continue

I am the author of this article. My thesis is that the modern American Presidency was heavily influenced by the institution of monarchy which was invented in ancient Nubia circa 3800 BC. If you're interested in history then check it out!

I saw Green Lantern today. I expected something terrible because reviewers totally panned it. And to add insult to injury, I listened to people on Twitter who also mentioned how bad the experience was going to be. And I almost listened. I am glad that I…
The heyday of the pulp magazines was before my time. I was born during the dying days of that era, and by the time I was old enough to read and appreciate the fiction those magazines published, they were long gone -- in spirit, at least. But I did delve heavily into paperback books, which are the…Continue

I'm not old school by nature, I came into this way because someone has to hold the line. There was a convergence between cell phone camera people and reality show folks. Scared the heck out of me. They copied the flash dancers and instead of converging in a mall, they have an internet channel. The technology is intrusive, they put their cams on ID cards to wear around the neck, on head bands, buttons, badges and trinkets. There is a rival group who wear flexible video monitors but I believe…Continue

. “Ulafazfi Telidosse. We killin’ the menfolk or what?” asked the gravel voiced Veyahansa, pointing to a group of men separated from the crowd of women, children and elderly in the just plundered compound of a well off city dweller of the recently taken city of Tabysiifide. “You! Nedresse blood or Khiv?", she asked one burly hard staring man, his muscular arms hanging by his side, fists looking like they shaped and hammered metal into form without need of tools. They…Continue
