The homie, Ashley, put me on to this amazing new track by Full Crate & Mar. I spent a good part of the weekend listening to it, trying to crawl into the bass. Suuuuuuper sexy. Enjoy!
I stumbled across Layori in while running the Beautiful Brown Blogs feature last week and could not wait to share this wonderful artist with you all. Even though I don’t understand all the words, I absolutely LOVE it when she sings in Yoruba. LOVE. IT. Below she covers U2′s With or Without You. I hope you enjoy this, too!
This is part of the Afrolicious.com feature of our favorite blogs by, of, and for all sorts of Brown people. You see, we know the creative web can be a very white place, but if you know where to look, you can be inspired by all things Brown and beautiful. All these links and more are available on the Afrolicious Network as well.
“The Southern California Library is a people’s library dedicated to documenting and preserving the histories of communities in struggle for justice and using our collections to address the challenges of the present so that all people have the ability, resources, and freedom to make their own histories.”
It’s like an analog version of the Afrolicious project, and we absolutely love it!
Last week they released a pair of stamps honoring local Los Angeles Black history makers Samella Lewis, art historian, and Alprentice “Bunchy” Carter, founder and leader of the Southern California Chapter of the Black Panther Party. Los Angeles has a rich history of the arts and social justice, especially in the Brown communities Lewis and Carter came out of. This is a great way to honor local leaders, and especially great since Samella Lewis celebrated her birthday earlier this week!
Our friends at the Southern California Library ask that you “celebrate Black history by sharing these stamps with others as we honor local L.A. community leaders who made history themselves and inspired countless others along the way.”
