I hope you enjoyed your Juneteenth Weekend? What did you learn the most?

I learned that the Juneteenth vibe was so great amongst melanated people, we were really excited to see each other. I learned that Black people are ready to be vulnerable with one another. I also learned that we have to do better at educating in these moments, but I felt the vibe was unity. At events there were Africans from all over the diaspora in their red, black, and green ready to unite! I was even surprised. I understood the power of our united vibe and keeping those spaces just for us…

Check Out DiasporAfri’s RBG Freedom Collection!

Hey Y’all! I am so excited to share with you all the Melanated Gem RBG Freedom Collection™️. Many of you know that the Pan-African colors of freedom are Red, Black, and Green. Many of you may know that Marcus Garvey is my hero, I have learned a lot from him, and I model some of my thoughts after him. He was the person I latched on to in graduate school when I was studying for my Master of Arts in Africana Studies, and I took a class on Pan-Africanism. Well, Marcus Garvey is the father of Pan-Africanism. Besides that, I have been studying my authentic audience, it was my goal to build an authentic audience using my authentic voice, and I found that the majority of my social media followers and supporters follow Pan-Africanism, and the majority of my supporters that actively support DiasporAfri are also Black Males, at least 90%! I also have lovely, strong, ladies that support DiasporAfri, LLC, and honestly, I love you all. I decided to dedicate this collection to my dedicated supporters, I thank all of you for your support over the years. This set represents freedom and unity, this set represents the Global Black Diaspora, and those dedicated to liberating us. We are Afrikans not because we were born in Africa, but Africa was born in us. Pan-Africans identify as African because we do not take on the title that was given to us brutally, we reclaim our original title. In the words of Marcus Garvey, “Africa for the Africans!”

  1. The Afrikan Man™️ Bracelet is for the melanated kings that continuously have shown love, supported, purchased, shared, and encouraged DiasporAfri, LLC. The word “King” is featured with Bronze Metal letters. The ends are tied twice and sewn several times for extra security.
  2. The Melanated Gem RBG Freedom Set™️ is for the ladies, it features the same items as the Melanated Bundle™️, with the Pan-African RBG colors. A handmade headband that is sewn and glued for extra security, and features the word “Afrikan” in gold acrylic letters. The bracelet features the RBG colors, and a pop of gold glass beads to make you sparkled like a gem, featuring the word “Gem” with Bronze Metal Letters (if you want the word “Afrikan”, the letters will be gold acrylic). The waist beads feature RBG colored stones and the words “Afrikan Gem” with Bronze Metal Letters. This is offered in a set only.
  3. The RBG Queen & King: Freedom set™️ is for the lovely Melanated couples! DiasporAfri is all about Black love and building strong Black families. This set comes with similar style bracelets; one catering to men, the other catering to ladies, with the words “Queen” and “King” respectively, with Bronze Metal letters.

Thank you all for your support! Be sure to check out the entire Melanated Gem™️collection by clicking here, see you soon!

It’s Always Been You… #ForwardFridays

Hello All! I always find it interesting in this society that people pigeon hold themselves to that one title, “I’m a model therefore I am____________” fill in the blank. The truth is, you make the title, the title doesn’t make you. We’ve all heard that, right? Well, I want to go a little further and tell you that everything you were created to be is already inside of you, no title needed. You see, especially when it comes to Africana people, the world has done it’s best to withhold certain titles, positions, and opportunities from us. We are plagued with useless statistics on what is “not” happening with us, or what a percentage of us “will or will not” experience according to someone’s useless statistics. These people know the power of words and the power of ruling by fear, if they can get you to believe that you can’t, then actively hide the resources, then they feel they’ve won their battle. That is not the case love, if it was designed to be in you, then it is active at all times.

When we look at the trajectory of or lives, we see who we were always meant to be. I believe in the power of prayer because once I ask God to actively show me something, it happens. No matter the situation, the pattern of you is always clear. Have you always stood up for people, have you always taken things apart, have you always gazed at the stars at night and wondered how it all happens, have you become extra angry when you see a disabled person get bullied, have you taken apart your cell phone in an effort to put it back together? What has always been you? then actively seek out the resources to make that happen. I truly believe that once we start a journey, doors start to open up; then we either create our own paths or are lead on the path to make our dreams a reality. The only thing between us, and beginning, is the action.

It may sound hard for people who actively have situations that seem unbearable, but I can guarantee, from experience that even in an unbearable situation there is always a way, even if it seems unnoticeable, we have to open our eyes to see. Especially as Africana people, we literally have had everything taken from us, and even today, no matter the status, have opportunities withheld from us, and we still manage to create something out of nothing. That’s not just Black Girl Magic, that’s Black People Magic. We manage to influence culture all over the world, and supposedly the people with the least. I’ll tell you what, even if we have the least resources, we have the most life.

So, Melanated Gem, we can’t look at the title the world gives us only, we have to title ourselves. Start telling people who we are, with confidence. Even if it’s a doctor you wish to be, begin to tell people you are a healer on the path to becoming a doctor, a writer on the path to becoming an author, a musician on the path to becoming a producer. These are the things we must begin to tell ourselves – with confidence, to create the paths, to transform the world. Once the words are out there, the actions will follow. I call you Melanated Gems because you are my gems, your presence feeds me. When I was teaching I called my students my babies, my kids, I loved them so much, and I was able to transform their minds by transforming those words. There’ nothing in the world anybody can tell me about a Black child, and their capabilities, I will prove them wrong everytime, why? Because I am a Black child, whatever you say about them, you are saying about me, you get?

Be sure to get your custom made Melanated Gem™ jewelry to empower you and an everyday reminder to remember who you are…

Diasporans Making A Difference – #TeamworkThursdays

Hello All! I’m glad to have you. As you can see, DiasporAfri, LLC is growing. I really want DiasporAfri to feel like a family, a journey, and that is why I like to give life to Black people’s actual voices and stories. So give me feedback, what would you like to see? What is important to you? As DiasporAfri grows, I’d like to tell you what is next, and what I am currently working on to catch you all up.

  • Dear Black People™ Webinar Series will be back at the end of March! I am taking the time to refine it using the feedback from the first round, and giving life to specific narratives. This series is liberating minds. I will use part of the proceeds to provide free workshops for youth on a mass scale, that has always been the plan, but now it is revealed!
  • Melanated Gem™ Handmade Accessories to uplift and empower the Global Black Diaspora are now on sale! These waist beads, headbands, and bracelets are special y’all! I made them with the colorful character of the Global Black Diaspora in mind, they are themed, they are powerful, they are bright, and you’ll have a reminder everyday of who you are!
  • Garden of Love: A Book of Poems is being updated to reflect the poems I have written this year that you all love, thanks for the feedback! The updated book will be available next Wednesday, right on time for Wordy Wednesdays! Please support, this book features poems that I have written from 2009 until now, yes 2009! when I was just in undergrad, you can definitely see the evolution of my mind through the poems.
  • The DiasporAfri, LLC App is in pitch mode, and development mode, so I am using feedback to create a product that will really speak to my audience the way you all need to be spoken to, it’ll be great this time around!
  • The Day I learned to Cook Oatmeal: A Journey of Faith, Love, and Redemption is being updated as well to reflect part 4, it has been off of the bookstore for a few months now, but I have ten copies at home, it sold pretty well the first time around, but with the change of events in the world, I am updating it to add some more advice for the times! That will be available in April.
  • Check out the brand new events calendar page to see when the next event or workshop is, and when I’ll be featured as a guest speaker. I have an event coming up on Sunday 11/14/2021 as I’ll be presenting for the Africanidad community, the same one featured in this blog post.
  • As always, you can subscribe to this blog to read uplifting and forward moving content everyday, and I’ll be working on new music soon as well, but as you can see, I’m very busy!
  • Last but not least, I am doing my 2nd round of reaching out to members of Congress and the Senate, for a full list of initiatives on behalf of the Black Community. This is to create one authentic sound and due our duty of accountability as citizens! This time, I am also reaching out to partner with liberated organizations as well. Check out a meeting from the first round of meetings!

The purpose of DiasporAfri, LLC is to educate, uplift, and entertain the Global Black Diaspora for the purpose of unity! No division over here, if we notice an issue, we address it with forward moving solutions. We reject white supremacy and we free our minds to be fully confident and dependent on ourselves, as every united people should be. We have no time to waste, Black people’s safety and well being is on the line, and people are falling victim to 400 year old tactics. At DiasporAfri divide and conquer is demolished, and we support our sistren and brethren across the diaspora unapologetically. Consider donating as well, as I use the opportunity to reach as many people as I can, a donation form can be found below, especially for the development of the DiasporAfri app! With the many initiatives you see above, I kindly ask for your support and wish to partner with other liberated organizations doing the same!

Have a wonderful day! Any donation of $15 or above, you can receive a choice of a bracelet or a copy of my book of poems!
