Lord forgive me...I just step into the dark side. I've loved hip hop all my life but this is the most ignorant track I have EVER made. I've dipped my big toe into the mainstream realm once. But this...I'm sorry J Dilla, Martin Luther King and Maya Angelou.

Is this what it has become? When I was younger I lived in the library, everything was there for me. Now that I am older and awakened; the LIE-brary is useless. I can't even find a decent book on fungus to research this chicken. Everything is the same, Civil Rights, Martin Luther King, a dead Malcolm X, Desmond Tutu, Maya Angelou, Religion, The White House, Obama, Reagan, Birds, Star Wars, China, Slaves, Native Americans, Columbus, Hood Books, children's books that are useless. I might as well stay on the Internet.
Am yet to see great world leaders who will follow the legacy of Nelson Mandela,Maya Angelou,Martin Luther King,Steve Bantu Biko ect
Oprah Winfrey spoke to Entertainment Tonight on Friday and revealed that she’ll be speaking at Dr. Maya Angelou’s memorial service on June 7th. She also revealed that she was supposed to visit Maya after shooting scenes for her Martin Luther King, Jr. biopic, Selma, in Atlanta — but ended up speakin…
Angelou, Maya (1928- ) Next entry In 1960 Maya Angelou, a single mother and struggling actor, accepted the position of northern coordinator for the New York office of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC). It was in this capacity that Angelou first met Martin Luther King, Jr. Although she worked with SCLC for only six months, King was “grateful” for her contribution, particularly the coordination of many several fundraising ventures (Angelou, 107). Born Marguerite Johnson in St. Louis, Missouri, on 4 April 1928, Angelou was raised by her paternal grandmother after her parents’ divorced. At age 16, Angelou gave birth to a son, Guy, and took various jobs to help support him. After moving to New York to pursue a dancing career, she was cast in a production of Porgy and Bess that toured Europe and Africa. After hearing King speak at a church in Harlem in early 1960, Angelou resolved to help SCLC raise funds by staging a revue, “Cabaret for Freedom.” The revue was a rousing success, wi ...
Acclaimed writer and activist Maya Angelou passed away yesterday aged 86. A friend to Martin Luther King and Malcolm X, she was also a prominent Civil Rights activist who had a profound influence in Civil Rights and racial reconciliation. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 – which outlawed segregation - is seen by many as one of the Civil Rights movement’s main legal achievement, but a few only are aware that it also caused the decline of black neighbourhoods across America:
I have very few heroes. Interestingly those do I have are all black. Louis Armstrong, Mohammed Ali, Martin Luther King, and Maya Angelou. All of them moral giants and great spiritual teachers. All of them creative geniuses. None of them victims in spite of all that happened to them. From a Radical Forgiveness perspective, I find it interesting that Maya Angelou was raped as a young girl and while she did not speak for five years she read voraciously. Would she have become the literary genius she did become had it not been for that experience? Think about it. She had to have forgiven her rapist for her to be who she was and the light that she was. It will never be extinguished.
Today a great American author passed. Maya Angelou (April 4, 1928 – May 28, 2014) was an American author and poet. She was best known for her series of seven autobiographies; the first, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings (an international bestseller and nominated for a National Book Award in 1970), tells of her life up to the age of seventeen, and brought her international recognition and acclaim. She was active in the Civil Rights movement, and worked with Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X. In 1993, Angelou recited her poem "On the Pulse of Morning" at President Bill Clinton's inauguration, the first poet to make an inaugural recitation since Robert Frost at John F. Kennedy 's inauguration in 1961. CNN stated, "Angelou's legacy is twofold. She leaves behind a body of important artistic work that influenced several generations. But the 86-year-old was praised by those who knew her as a good person, a woman who pushed for justice and education and equality." Today we remember this amazing author who gav ...
Today we lost not only an African American icon, one of the greatest and most inspiring writers, intelligent, elegant, grace-filled, favor-full, spiritual, single Mom, dancer, 1st black woman streetcar conductor, renowned actress, professor, singer, editor, activist, Presidential Medal of Freedom holder, a lover of life and all who lives it and so much more; the incomparable Maya Angelou. Born Marguerite Ann Johnson on April 4th,1928 in St. Louis, MO (the same date that Dr. Martin Luther King was assassinated in 1968). To a Navy dietitian Bailey Johnson, her father and Nurse/Hotel Owner/Card dealer Vivian Baxter. Known as Rita, Ritie or Maya (by her older brother). Raised by her grandmother Annie Henderson a general store owner in Stamps, Arkansas from the age of 3 after her parents divorced. Maya rose through all of her challenges to become the amazing woman we know of today, she will be remembered for all that she has contributed and given to this world and missed both dearly by many; especially Me. I n ...
I recently had an opportunity to visit with Dr. Maya Angelou who graciously welcomed me to her home in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Even though she is now 86 years of age, she is sharp as a tack and her wit and intellect remain very apparent. Like myself, she is concerned about the direction of our nation and the fact that we seem to be willing to abandon many of the godly principles that have guided us in the past. I asked her what it was like to be such a creative person and in her typical modest fashion she said I was the last onewho should be asking such a question. We chatted about some of our common friends and I was thrilled to have an opportunity to walk around her magnificent property and see the many statues of well-known individuals such as Dr. Martin Luther King, Mahatma Gandhi, Duke Ellington and a host of other luminaries. It was an unforgettable experience and I thank God for blessing us in the United States and throughout the world with the gift of Dr. Maya Angelou. Be sure to read this ...

I just found out Maya Angelou and I share a birthday along with Heath Ledger. Coincidently Martin Luther King Jr. Also died on that day. My birthday is interesting
Black History Fact!! Maya Angelou became one of the most prominent voices for African Americans in the arts. By the early 1970's, she had been a dancer, a poet, a aide in Martin Luther King's and Malcolm X's organizations. Angelou was also hired to direct a film version of Bird and became the First Black women to direct a major Hollywood movie.
Just a thought- Black History Month has been set aside for the month of February. We are a people rich in history and heritage that should be celebrated/recognized/talked about ... ALL YEAR LONG. Some noteworthy famous blacks mentioned in our Black History Celebrations, include: Harriet Tubman, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Mrs. Coretta Scott-King, Mrs. Rosa Parks, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Arthur Ashe, Maya Angelou, Malcolm X, Althea Gibbs, Hon. Judge Thurgood Marshall, Wilma Rudolph, Medgar Evers, Mary McCloud Bethune, Althea Gibson, Willie Mays, Oprah Winfrey, George Washington Carver, Nelson Mandela & many, many others. However, we have Black History of our own within the HELENA-W. HELENA-LEXA areas that should be talked about & passed onto to our children & community at large. There were a series of riots in Elaine, AR---known as the "Elaine Riot"; the Helena-West Helena Boycotts approximately 1976-1978; Local Civil Rights Activists & Supporters-Rev. P.L. Perkins, Rev. Dr. Conway Gilcreast, Sr., Rev. . ...

When you come to look backonall that you have done in your life, you will get more satisfaction from the pleasure you have brought into other people's lives than you will from the times that you outdid and defeated them."–Rabbi Harold Kushner Quote can't use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have."–Maya Angelou Quote you are going to do anything, you must expect criticism. But it's better to be a doer than a critic.

Don't you realize that in any search for a Black History Month project or study of Black History usually contains very little or NO information of Emperor Haile Selassie I, King of Kings of Ethiopia??? How come they never taught us about Emperor Haile Selassie I in school or at church? Didn't He advocate Christianity?! Wasn't He the Highest Ranked, Most Decorated Human being to walk the face of the Earth since the beginning of time??!?? Last time I checked Haile Selassie is black, He is an Afrikan. He's from Ethiopia. So why don't we as black people hear other blacks speaking openly on His Imperial Majesty? Why are we doing Black History Month Projects talking about people like Frederick Douglas, Harriet Tubman, Marcus Mosiah Garvey, Malcolm X, Muhammed Ali, Louis Farrakhan, Martin Luther King, Maya Angelou, Rosa Parks, Harry Belafonte, Bob Marley, etc etc (jus to name a few!) . BUT we AIN'T talking about the King of Kings? Nah. Something is WRONG. Check it out IN YOUR BRAIN. How can we talk about these g ...
How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard. Avoid those whose philosophy of life is "everything is about me." They will violate you and demand an apology. We don't change until the pain of remaining the same outweighs the pain of change! ~Rick Godwin "Discipline enables you to think first and act second." ~Joyce Meyer Life is a tragedy to those who feel, and a comedy to those who think. ~Horace Walpole Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step. (Martin Luther King, Jr.) I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. (Maya Angelou ) WORD OF THE DAY: Syzygy (sizz-idgy): An alignment of two objects, especially heavenly bodies in orbit, or of concepts, either similar or antipodal. (noun)
So as we all know Black History Month just past and I found it truly obsurd the list of people that my daughter could do a report on. Looking at the list in complete shock I didnt see Rosa Parks, Harriet Tubman, or even Maya Angelou but they made sure to put Michelle Obama on this list! Being completely upset I went down to talk with the teacher. I informed her that although there were a few people on this list it was definately incomplete. I then explained about my Black History and that my Uncle was the first Judge appointed by Jimmy Carter to oversee the eastern and western districts of Ak and was involved in the impeachment of clinton. He walked hand in hand with Martin Luther King. He was later appointed by Bill Clinton before impeachment to be the first black Supreme Judge. This to me means far more in the eyes of Black History than someone being recognizsd for just being married.
Maya Angelou stopped celebrating her birthday for many years following the assassination of her friend, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., on the same day. She annually sent flowers to Mrs. King to commemorate that day.
My 16 yr old came to me today and asked me to give her a list of 8 people in Black History that she could research n write a paper on but not Rosa Parks or Martin Luther King cause they are the main people talked about in school.and as I was makin the list I thought.our children will never know who these people were/are and what they contributed and sacrificed so that we/they could have our/their civil liberties.we have to tell them and teach them about these people or they will be forgotten and so will their legacy This is my list for her: Medgar Evers, Emitt Till, Madame C.J. Walker, Huey P. Newton, Muhammad Ali, Dr. Carter Woodson, Malcom X, Maya Angelou.

Here is a compilation of 15 quotes from prominent people worth reflecting on this Black History Month. Feel free to share and pass along with your family and friends. "Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave, I am the dream and the hope of the slave. I rise. I rise. I rise." -Maya Angelou "Hate is too great a burden to bear. It injures the hater more than it injures the hated." -Coretta Scott King "I have learned over the years that when one's mind is made up, this diminshes fear." -Rosa Parks "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." -Martin Luther King, Jr. "The battles that count aren't the ones for gold medals. The struggles within yourself--the invisible, inevitable battles inside all of us--that's where it's at." -Jesse Owens "I am where I am because of the bridges that I crossed. Sojourner Truth was a bridge. Harriet Tubman was a bridge. Ida B. Wells was a bridge. Madame C. J. Walker was a bridge. Fannie Lou Hamer was a bridge ...
Amazement Awaits (In my Maya Angelou voice); You don't believe me, just watch (in my Trinidad James voice). The best is yet to come (in my Donald Lawrence voice). You only get one shot to blow (in my Eminem voice). There is only one rule; I will not lose (in my Jay Z voice). Against all odds (in my Tupac voice) I have a Dream (in my Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. voice). & FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD (IN MY OWN VOICE AS I READ James 2:14-26 new king james version)
This past Sunday, The Ensemble Theatre produced a play that I wrote called, "The Road to A Dream." It was my first play ever chosen and produced by a major theatre. It's a great play about the journey a young girl takes through history, and the influential African-Americans she runs into along the way. Some of our greats like Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Maya Angelou, Rosa Parks, Medgar Evers, and Langston Hughes. Post production pics are coming soon! If you or anyone you know would be interested in reading and/or producing "The Road to A Dream" for your theatre, church, or event, the script is available for download at www.iamjoep.com. This isn't a play only for Black History Month. Remnants of our Past should be acknowledged, remembered and passed down, as often as we can.

On this day of celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King and Obama's inauguration, I am struck by my ignorance. If I wanted to find quotes from powerful African Americans, I'd look to Dr. King, Maya Angelou and Malcolm X. And that's as far as my brain - without google - takes me. :-( Who would you look to?

Today has been a good day. Amen! The sermon text for worship today was taken from Philippians 4:4, "Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!" In this sermon, one thought has stuck with me all day, "In this life, we may never become an Oprah Winfrey, Albert Einstein, Thurgood Marshall, Winston Churchill, Martin Luther King, Jr, Rene' Descartes, Barack Obama, Isaac Newton, Maya Angelou, Mark Twain, or any influential, aspirational figure or professional. ("Man, who is born of woman, Is short-lived and full of turmoil." Job 14:1. We don't control death and disease, do we?) However, one reason that a man or woman can "rejoice in the Lord always" is that he or she CAN ALWAYS BECOME A CHRISTIAN! "...whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely." Revelations 22:17. Being a Christian supersedes being a Mark Twain, Maya Angelou, Isaac Newton, Barack Obama, Rene' Descartes, Martin Luther King, Jr, Albert Einsten, and Oprah Winfrey. It's nothing wrong with wanting to and achieving things i ...

My thoughts might seem to B controversial to some. I apologize. It may annoy others. Get over it. But, if you don't decide to speak up at some point in your life. People will tend to believe that you are a pushover. I am a lot of things. Timid and shy is not one of those things. I will confront if I need to. I will praise at all times. But, to stand and B silent. I can't do that. Men and women fought for this opportunity. It's time for us to stand up and B the voice of our children's children. When we had NO VOICE, no choice; someone stood for your RIGHTS!!! Our Majestic Redeemer One and Only the Most High; since I can't categorize Him with mortals. He stand alone. Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, Nelson Mandela, Maya Angelou, William H. (Bill) Cosby, Sidney Poitier, Muhummad Ali, Tiger Woods, Syrena and Venus Williams, Tyler Perry, Angela Bassett, Loretta Devine and so many other voices. Spoke on your behalf and my behalf.

I am not a political animal... but these past two days of speeches by the fabric of America have startled me into a passionate happiness, and knowing I only felt when listening to Gloria Steinem, Maya Angelou, Martin Luther King, Jr., JFK and Bobby Kennedy. 2012...the decision to take care of each other, we who listen, feel the unbridled joy of feminine energy, inside us all. Men and women who want to create and build as a society. There is no place for greed in our society and where it lives, it will not dominate at the expense of its people!
