Reports of unlawful slaying by state forces of any daring to PROTEST! Such repression is to be condemned by all who uphold fairness & Justice!

"Knowing that material and spiritual progress are essential to man, we must ceaselessly work for the equal attainment of both. Only then shall we be able to acquire that absolute inner-calm, so necessary to our well-being. Whenever conflict arises between material and spiritual values, the conscience plays an important role and anyone who suffers from a guilty conscience is never really free from this problem until he makes peace with himself and his conscience. Discipline of the mind is a basic ingredient of genuine morality and therefore of spiritual strength. Spiritual power is the eternal guide, in this life and the life after, for man ranks supreme among all creatures. Led forward by spiritual power, man can reach the summit destined for him by the Great Creator. Since nobody can interfere in the realm of God we should tolerate and live side by side with those of other faiths. In the mystic traditions of the different religions we have a remarkable unity of spirit. Whatever religion they may profess, they are spiritual kinsmen. While the different religions in their historic forms bind us to limited groups and militate against the development of loyalty to the world community, the mystics have already stood for the fellowship of humanity...In harmony with the spirit of the mystics of ages gone by.No one should question the faith of others, for no human being can judge the ways of God."
H.I.M. Emperor Haile Selassie I

MAY THIS POST ALSO demonstrate my solidarity these thousands of "prisoners of conscience", and also commemorate the hundreds of Ethiopian sons, daughters, mothers and fathers who were recently murdered and maimed by the current regime.

Yet I celebrate the lives of not only Ethiopians and Lou Rawls but an elder (Ancestor Mrs Thomas) in my own town in Trinidad who also crossed over last night aged 104 yrs.

may the ancestors be pleased with their efforts
We pour libation in celebration with thanks
Beloved Bast, mistress of happiness and bounty, twin of the Sun God, slay the evil that afflicts our minds as you slew the serpent Apep. With your graceful stealth anticipate the moves of all who perpetrate cruelties and stay their hands against the children of light. Grant us the joy of song and dance, and ever watch over us in the lonely places in which we must walk.

Son of heaven who PRETENDED to be INSANE


Born Prince Nguyen Buu Lan, Thanh Thai was the son of Emperor Duc Duc. When Emperor Dong Khanh came to power, Prince Buu Lan was put under house arrest with his mother for having connections with those who opposed him. When Dong Khanh died however, the French colonial authorities and the high-ranking Mandarins decided that Buu Lan was the ideal successor. After the murder of Emperor Duc Duc, the boy's mother cried when her son was taken away, fearing that he would meet the same fate. Instead he was enthroned as the new Vietnamese Son of Heaven; Emperor Thanh Thai.

Even at the age of 10 Thanh Thai was recognized as being very intelligent and was already realizing that the French were keeping watch over him through palace spies. Also, whereas Dong Khanh had tried to be friendly with the French, Emperor Thanh Thai took a course of passive-resistance. Although he refrained from outright rebellion (which would have been political suicide) he made his feelings clear in other ways, symbolic gestures and biting remarks. He was also a man of the people, and a monarch who cared deeply for his country. The Emperor would often slip out of the Forbidden City dressed in the clothes of a poor commoner to talk with his people directly and see how they were being effected by government policies.
To show that he was friendly with western civilization, Emperor Thanh Thai was the first Vietnamese monarch to cut his hair in western style and learn to drive a car. He encouraged French-style education but maintained bitter feeligs over their control of his country. He also supported numerous building projects and took an interest in the everyday lives of his subjects. When travelling among his people he would hold what Americans would call "Town Hall meetings" with the Emperor seated on a mat with his subjects in a circle around him, discussing the issues of the day and hearing their point of view.
Slowly, as the Emperor began to realize how thouroughly his palace had been infiltrated with French spies he had to feign insanity to escape their constant scrutiny. With his enemies believing he was a harmless lunatic Thanh Thai was able to work more forcefully for Vietnamese autonomy while waiting for the right time to throw off colonial rule. He was on his way to join a resistance movement in China when he was arrested by the French who declared him insane and forced the Emperor to abdicate. In 1907 his son was installed as Emperor Duy Tan of Vietnam. Thanh Thai was exiled first to Vung Tau and when Duy Tan rebelled against the French they were both exiled to Reuinion Island in 1916. He never gave up hope for the liberation of his country and in 1945 he was allowed to return home but was kept under house arrest in Vung Tau, South Vietnam. He died in Saigon on March 24, 1954.

The Federal Law abolishing the importation of slaves goes into effect today as the slave population reaches 1,000,000.


William Lloyd Garrison publishes the "Liberator" which argues that slavery is sinful and calls for the immediate release of all slaves without compensating their owners.


President Abraham Lincoln issues the Emancipation Proclamation, which freed all slaves except those living in non-rebellious states.

Ancestor Mother Shirley Chisholm

Shirley Chisholm, the Nation's first Black woman to serve in the U.S. Congress, died at 80.
Shirley St. Hill Chisholm was born on November 30, 1924 in Brooklyn, New York to Charles and Ruby St. Hill. Her father was from British Guiana and her mother was from Barbados. In 1927, Shirley was sent to Barbados to live with her maternal grandmother. She received a good education from the British school system, which she later credited with providing her with a strong academic background.

In 1934, she rejoined her parents in New York. Shirley excelled in academics at Girls High School in Brooklyn from which she graduated in 1942. After graduation she enrolled in Brooklyn College where she majored in sociology.

Shirley encountered racism at Brooklyn College and fought against it. When the black students at Brooklyn College were denied admittance to a social club, Shirley formed an alternative one. She graduated in 1946 with honors.

Her campaign slogan was "Fighting Shirley Chisholm--Unbought and Unbossed." She won the election and became the first African American woman elected to Congress.

plus the incalculable number of souls who suffered the great MA'AFA.
