Save The Date: Bringing Conscious Back Show May 19th, 2017

Good evening, my readers. I hope everything is well with you all. As you can see from the above picture, I have an upcoming feature. I’m back on the scene with my poems, and intend to keep promoting them.  For those who follow me on social media, you may have heard me mention that I recently had the opportunity to read one of my poetic pieces during the Black Power Open Mic “First Friday” events last week.

Netflix has really been on a roll this year. First The Get Down, then Luke Cage, now Black Mirror. Where do I even start with this show? Season 3 is just so creative. It doesn’t water anything down, and people were worried about it becoming less edgy with more episodes.  Without spoiling it for anyone, Season 3 of Black Mirror digs deeper into the reservoir of topics showing the potential uses and abuses of technology and social media. It is billed as a future “10 minutes from now” and some episodes really feel that way.  There’s a book that I...
