I’m Not Your Entertainment: Black and Indigenous Relevance and Relegation in Climate Action

I am now clear on why James Baldwin articulated clearly, “I’m not your Negro.” I could hear him speaking to my soul as I came to this space to make clear that “I’m not your entertainment.” We will no longer have what is relevant relegated to the side.

The Fight for Black and Gullah/Geechee Freedom

I heard myself with throngs of ancestors singing “Fight on just a little while longer! Pray on just a little while longer! Hold on just a little while longer!” I rested in that moment knowing that the ancestors were tapping their children’s children’s children on the shoulders (and some in the head) awakening them to join in the fight. To take a stand for Gullah/Geechee land! WE BINYA and ain’t gwine nowhey!

Queen’s Chronicle: Journey to the Land of Queens and Pharaohs Part 3

Life isn’t the first thing that most people think of when looking at the treasures that have been removed from the pyramids including the sarcophaguses that allowed you to look at the elaborate facial features of the African people that gave us science that is still being examined to this day. Yet, life is all around in the large families that are so loved here not unlike in my own land, the Gullah/Geechee Nation.

Queen’s Chronicle: Journey to the Land of Queens and Pharaohs Part 2

The journey to Kemet is typically one done by those seeking to see one of the wonders of the world or someone in academia or spiritual studies looking for treasures amongst the stones of the pyramids or in the museums and through the translation of hieroglyphics. As much as seeing the pyramids, statues and the Sphinx is amazing, it turns out that the true treasures in this land are those that the pharaohs didn’t even want to depart with in death-the people.

Queen’s Chronicle: Journey to the Land of Queens and Pharaohs Part 1

I found myself overlooking the pyramids feeling this power emanating to and through me. The word “empowerment” took on an entirely new meaning when watching the sunrise and set in this land of queens and pharaohs. Many solely see a pyramid as a place of death whereas others see it as I do, as a place of healing energy and the apex as a location of higher consciousness. In the midst of the power of the sun above the apex of the pyramid, your energy is centered and balanced and your spiritual power is renewed. Renewal is what is going to take to transmit this power and these ideals to the world because we must each seek transformation-“…be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” (Romans 12:2b). It may just take coming to a land like this to be with others of like mind to find that renewal or it may simply take a moment of prayer and meditation as the sun sets not only over the pyramids or the Red Sea in Sinai, but over a sincere person that at the end of every day simply seeks to continue purposefully walking in all lands seeking order, balance, truth, reciprocity, harmony, righteousness, morality and justice. Wherever, the next steps take me, I pray as I do in our Gullah/Geechee Spiritual, “Walk with Me Lord!”
