 Anna Malaika Tubbs "The storyteller influences the story"

She is an advocate, author, educator and scholar. 

The Three Mothers was well written from a maternal, wholesome place and while expressing gratitude. I was curious how the families of the men were affected by the experience during that time, how did each parent develop a way to cope or is grief ongoing? The amount of strength, perseverance and grace is admirable as motherhood is eternal. 

The mothers of the three gentlemen were significant in their sons lives. It's thoughtful that Anna chose to write from their perspective as well as including their family while doing research and putting together the book. It's valuable information, in depth learning experience and connection. 

This month we celebrate Black History Month and in March we celebrate Women's History Month A special tribute to the mothers of Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, and James Baldwin. Thank you Anna Malaika Tubbs for highlighting and writing about all three women. Embrcing humanity, Thank you! 

“The mother is the first teacher of the child. The message she gives that child, that child gives to the world.” Malcolm X

Marvin Gaye

Flyin' High (In the Friendly Sky)  An incredible song by Marvin Gaye about Drug Addiction. While listening to the song it taps into your senses. Creative with the description, lyrics and reflection. He takes us on a journey; touching the soul, you can hear from the sounds, form a vision from his words and feel the experience. The power of addiction, drugs and the places it can take you emotionally, mentally and physically. Music is art, poetry and Marvin Gaye expressed that in depth and in the purest form. The album "What's going on" allowed us to see the world through his eyes.  Thank you Marvin Gaye for your impact, influence, style and impeccable talent.

Tears For Water

Alicia Keys Alicia Keys one of my favorite artist, a representation of brains and beauty. Tears for Water has lovely written words expressed in lyrics and poetry. My personal favorite is Stolen Moment which is also featured on her Unplugged album. Writing is a great form of expression and Alicia Keys did a wonderful job doing so in this book.
