I discovered a gem of a book, at a gem of a store. It was the end of a rare outing nowadays with two of our three teenagers. We had spent the day in NYC, my original ‘hometown’, stopping at the Museum of the City of New York (highly recommended), then downtown to a gallery exhibition of polaroid photos (meh), and spur of the moment (because it was there) dinner at the innovative (and expensive) vegetarian restaurant Dirt Candy. We started driving home on Allen Street, when we saw an activist cooperative book store- Bluestockings. Such a sight was too shocking and potentially joyous toRead More →

by Ajamu Baraka / February 2nd, 2018 The ongoing political circus in the capital of the world’s most powerful empire opens almost daily with a new act each day showcasing an even more bizarre and more revealing display of the internal rot of a culture and a political system in decline.

Owen Charles March 17, 2018 I had the distinct pleasure and privilege of attending the Black Royalty African Heritage expo in Waterbury last week. This event brought in folks from surrounding areas of Connecticut and New York, and even the UK. My draw had been one of those performing- from the UK- Mutabaruka, a reggae icon now 65 years old.  A hero to me, having seen him in the late 80’s and early 90’s, I have long been a fan of his revolutionary brand of Dub Reggae and Dub Poetry. So I had been surprised to see that not only was he appearing in theRead More →
