African and African American Celebrations in Los Angeles

Los Angeles-As luck will have it, Angelenos experienced Summer weather Labor Day Weekend, which is suppose to be the unofficial end of Summer.

My cultural journey through Los Angeles commenced in historic Leimert Park Village for the 5th Annual Leimert Park Village African Art and Music Festival. This splendid 3 day event was scheduled,... Read More

Just off Broadway I’m in a side street by City Hall, the ubiquitous New York crowds somehow missing, the hum of traffic vague and distant.

A lonesome monument sits silent and tucked in the shadow of City Planning offices and a 30-storey Federal skyscraper; that building’s construction leading to the 1991 discovery of the largest North American cemetery of Africans and those of African descent. This is a small corner of a much larger 17th and 18th Century ‘Negros Buriel Ground’, originally 2.6Ha and the resting place of 15,000 men, women and children.

With New York’s voracious... Read More

The things people say right in front of you are sometimes very disturbing, Especially when what is being said is in another language that you don't understand. For years my wife and now 17 y/o daughter have been coming home telling me they just know the Asian women working at the nail salon are talking about them in a negative way. To be honest, I have always just blown it off. It has been my experience that most women always think someone is whispering something about them. I have seen this my whole life with family, friends, spouses, daughters, co-workers, and yes, even with the strippers... Read More

A small green plaque reads `Ancient Playground’, the entrance a pair of black cast-bronze gates set between tall rectangular pillars of polished pink granite; topped by bears on the left – one upright – three deer on the other. The pillars are engraved in gold letters, dedicated to William Church Osborn –

`PRESIDENTTHE CHILDREN’S AID SOCIETY 1901-1945?

A dogwalker crosses 5th Avenue, stopping by the picket fence and juggles three assorted dogs; a beagle, a Jack Russell and an errant Afghan. There’s a smattering of Central Park snow.

I catch the dogwalker’s eye and ask... Read More

Strange figures are painted in broad strokes of red ochre – Wandjina spirit-men – eerie round faces with big pools for eyes. I stand next to Maurice, “a Worara blackfella” and a driver at local mines. I ask him why they have no mouths. His voice is hushed, as he points at the staring spaceman figures. “Ah, you see bro, these spirits, they have much magic; so much power. They have no need for mouths.” He knows these spirits well. “We must be respectful, ‘cause if offended, lightning will strike us dead for sure.”

We’re at the far northwest of Australia amidst 1000km of serrated and sunburnt... Read More
