I am once again Reimagining my own life. I have done it many times before. So I am not waiting for “it” to happen in the future. The future is NOW as far as I am concerned. And after stopping in briefly to Lifestyle @50 last October in Atlanta, I have decided to travel to […]

Editor’s Note: I was searching for information on net neutrality and came across Davy D’s website. Reblogged from Davy D’s Hip Hop Corner First up is a nice video that pays tribute to Bloody Sunday. That was on March 7 1965 when Dr King and about 600 Civil Rights marchers attempted to walk from Selma […]
It is hard not to think of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in lofty terms. Standing as I was at the base of the statute, it is easy to see why we don’t think of him in human terms. King entered Morehouse at age 15 in 1944. This totally blows my mind considering my high […]
