Who Knew?

While browsing the Internet I found an article about the "Six Black Presidents"....Yes, you read right. The article goes into detail about Dwight David Eisenhower, Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Jackson, Calvin Coolidge, Warren Harding, and Thomas Jefferson all being of African descent.


Also, here is a pic I found of Dwight Eisenhower's Parent's...
His Mother was said to be Black & White.

Pic Of The Day

"...Though its proportions are colossal, the outline is pure and graceful; the expression of the head is mild, gracious, and tranquil; the character is African, but the mouth, and lips of which are thick, has a softness and delicacy of execution truly admirable; it seems real life and flesh. Art must have been at a high pitch when this monument was executed; for, if the head wants what is called style, that is the say, the straight and bold lines which give expression to the figures under which the Greeks have designated their deities, yet sufficient justice has been rendered to the fine simplicity and character of nature which is displayed in this figure..." -Vivant Denon (1798)

When I was younger I wasn't able to watch Blaxploitation films(for obvious reasons) but when I became an adult I caught up on some of the films from that era and I loved them!

A standout from these movies is the music....All the soundtracks were JAMMIN'! Nothing but funky Soul grooves!

"The Africa Channel is a showcase for the African continent's most outstanding English language television series, specials, documentaries feature films, music, event specials, biographies, soap operas, current business analysis, cultural and historical programs..shows that reflect the people of Africa, their incredible stories, their daily lives, their music and art, their successes, celebrations and challenges. "

While randomly flipping through channels, I discovered The Africa Channel last year and I absolutely love it! It's pretty freakin' awesome, too bad not many people know about it(which is why I'm posting this).  NO ONE I know watches this channel. *sad face*

I think everyone should check it out, but especially Black people (for obvious reasons).

Here's their website for more info:
