Divas Sisterhood & Divas Sanctuary Lounge Black History Month Celebration 2/27/12

28 Feb

What An amazing night it was,from the most talented people to hit the grid,we was blessed with so many amazing things at Divas 2nd annual Black History Month celebration!

We Started Off With Amazing Facts From Myself,i spoke facts about the late great Martin Luther King,To The Legendary Musician Louie Armstrong,To The Amazing Poet and a Favorite of Mines Maya Angelou. Our Guest and even myself learn even more about our history,and was shock at some of the things we didn’t know.

We Had Amazing Poetry By The Likes Of Ms. Brigette Christy(China Faith),she blessed us with a piece about Martin Luther King. Everyone was so moved by her piece,and touch by the words she spoke,she really gave the crowd a lesson that they learned. It taught you the ends and outs of society and how people seem to think they are like Martin Luther King,and how some people actually act. It was nice for her to stop by,and i was thankful for her wonderful piece.

After hearing amazing poetry From ms. Christy, I got on stage again to recite one of my favorite pieces named “The Essence of A Black Man”,i spoke about how black men are in our everyday society,and how each kind of person viewed them from different environments,and how they accept them. I touch a lot of people,and i can tell tons of my guest could relate to some things i was saying..and i enjoyed every minute of it.

We then heard from singers such as SoulCasanovaJones Resident,To Ms. Kherington Kaestner, To Sherri Avelino,to finally Ms. Chastity Nyn,grace the stage with amazing hits from some of the great of the music inductry. Ms. Nyn Shared a very touching tribute to the late and great Whitney Houston,who is a huge impact on black history itself. I was very happy to have all of these wonderful talents grace the stage with their wonderful voices.

We ended the celebration with myself reciting a very touch piece by the name of “black girl,black girl” which is  a letter written from a black man,to a beautiful black woman. it was so touching, i read it twice..Below is a preview of it.

Black girl, black girl, I’m sorry for all the times you fed on the scraps, from the table instead of sitting at the table by my side… as a equal for making you feel unpretty and unworthy by choosing women of another race over you…. for all the abuse physically and mentally that you have suffered and the rejection… black girl, black girl i can not undo all that you have suffered.. but i can start by apologizing for my transgression against you.. for you see my mother is a black woman so how could i not love you because.. she is you . To go against all the love she has shown me and all that she taught me is truly unforgivable…the healing can not start until the truth is finally told …and the wrongs made right, and for all of those who can not find the words or do not want to.. i will lend them a voice here and now.  black gir,l black girl even though it is not said or heard enough.. yes there are those of us who do love you and all of what you are!

Sincerly A Black Man!
