    In ode to Aretha Franklin I wanted to focus on her song writing. Listed below is the songs she wrote or her a member from her sanguine wrote on her various albums excluding the mention of the first album. I think it is telling she started having a gospel album and in the end has an album that is entitled a brand new me. Taking a look at the covers to all her albums, like ella fitzgerald or sarah vaughan , or many other black songstresses whom white owned media did not and do not present youthfully. No shame exist in displaying one who has lived long beyond the common, but I find it too common in media to not show black female artists when young. Which song is your favorite from the Written/Sung by Aretha Franklin?

Also consider the Dinah Washington Album, I heard it, it is a true ode. Her Sparkle film soundtrack album is underrated for the timing of it side quality having all song written from curtis mayfield. Aretha Franklin Sings the Great Diva Classics 2014 is another gem, showing how much she listened to other singers honestly.

    “Toni Morrison and Adaptation” A Special Issue of College Literature – Call for Proposals Edited by Stacie McCormick and Rhaisa Williams A Word from “College Literature: A Journal of Critical Literary Studies” : The year 2020 will mark the 50th anniversary of the publication of Toni Morrison’s inaugural novel, The Bluest Eye, a work that engages in innovative methods of adaptation by transforming the Dick and Jane primer into a powerful narrative charting the move from innocence to experience as inflected by blackness. In 2006, the novel was adapted into a stage play written by Lydia Diamond. Indeed, Morrison’s work both engages in the act of adaptation (modifying folktales, images, and song into narrative) and continues to be adapted in other formats (notable instances are Beloved, Jazz, and The Bluest Eye). The 50th anniversary of The Bluest Eye serves as an apt occasion to reflect on the transformational and intertextual character of Morrison’s work. For this special issue, we invite essays that analyze Morrison’s artistic and intellectual imprint on the stage, screen, and through lyric. We seek essays that theorize Morrison’s work in relation, but not limited to: Theories of adaptation Black artistic and cultural formalism Black feminist artistic practices Critical engagement with Morrison’s stage plays and/or operas (Margaret Garner; Desdemona; Dreaming Emmett; New Orleans, A Musical) Children’s Literature (The Tortoise or the Hare, co-authored with Slade Morrison) Film and stage adaptations of Morrison’s novels (Jazz, The Bluest Eye, Beloved) Music – How hip-hop, classical, jazz artists adapted Morrison’s work; How Morrison produced work in different formats such as “song cycles” or operettas Visual Art Recuperation of history and culture Forms of intimacy Regional theater communities Embodiment Multiple temporalities Commemoration Deadline for submissions is September 1, 2018. Please click here for more information on the publication and submission guidelines. http://centerforblackliterature.org/submit-toni-morrison-and-adaptation-a-special-issue-of-college-literature/

    @Mel Hopkins not you think , you know or,at least, you are 100% correct . And, yes, I am not suggesting,100%, that making money must have criminality but I am telling that 99.9% does, not in alway straight but it does. Excellent example: Robert Johnson sold something worth more than any price long term and sold it for fiscal profit, and was glorified from like minded folk, black or non- black, after doing it. Many hip hop artists did likewise, betraying their youth or their home life for the imagined gangster rapper imagery, that white owned corporations preferred over social critiques or artistic mobilizers. The problem is simple, define morals. Morals are not set in stone. Second, more importantly, function. Said black folk are looking to reject or deny function to remain in some ruleset, morals, while making money. At the least, that does not serve the function of making money to the best ability or serving a communities needs.

    She was briefly married to Glynn Turman “I had to scratch my head and ask myself, How the fuck did that bitch do that? I remember running into Sarah Vaughan, who always intimidated me. Sarah said, ‘Have you heard of this Aretha Franklin girl?’ I said, ‘You heard her do ‘Skylark,’ didn’t you?’ Sarah said, ‘Yes, I did, and I’m never singing that song again.’” -- Etta James, from David Ritz’ Respect: The Life of Aretha Franklin, 2014

    Yes, me too. I hear a lot about the O type blood but not the rh neg though coming from a lot of ethnic people. @CyniqueThis chart reflects what you are saying about the O blood type. And, I did hear about the blood transfusion and that experts wonder about this issue too in confusing the results of people being negative. That makes me wonder about that African woman who at first had, positive rh but then after having two babies, she was told that she had rh negative. That is interesting.
  17. Cynique

    JAY Z & the KALIEF BROWDER STORY

    No, i'm not saying anything because i don't know enough about the subject. And the only blood type i'm talking about is "O". i don't know anything about A or AB. I can say that this subject has comes up from time time in my experiences and in a room full of people, there has always been at least one other black person besides me who has O Negative blood. I know nothing about this condition as it relates to European people. I also know that the RH factor was just discovered in the 1940s during WWII when blood transfusions were at an all time high. i have no idea what my parents' blood types were, but when i was born in the 30s the Rhesus monkey studies hadn't been done, and whatever their types were, it didn't kill me.

    JAY Z & the KALIEF BROWDER STORY

    **My husband's brother is also O+, however, his people identify as an African American, but his grandmother was born on a reservation, and belongs to a North American tribe. Their ancestry on both sides go way back before Columbus. So, I here this O Pos. presence in the African American culture a lot.
  19. Chevdove

    JAY Z & the KALIEF BROWDER STORY

    I am trying. You know, that is what I was saying about the statements about the Genome Project in that it is said that people of African descent especially sub-Saharan Africa have NO DNA from Neanderthals. That sounds like a contradiction to me especially due to African Americans and how we have been intermixed over here for hundreds of years. Also, I did read the break down on the process of the D negative and D positive testing and how it is determined that a person has RH NEGATIVE. I do know about the recessive breakdown on the possibility of a person having RH NEG. And I know what is said about the percentage of RH Neg in the Horn of Africa. But are you saying that this RH NEGATIVE PRESENCE IS NOT PREDOMINANTLY PRESENT IN WHITE EUROPEAN WOMEN? RH positive has a child that is RH negative, the mother’s blood will literally kill the child due to incompatibility, this is not an evolutionary trait from a single stock of genetics. …… However, according to modern DNA sequencing, it is demonstrated that humanity as we know it, isn’t just ONE single ‘race’ that descended from the same ancestor in Africa, but a hybridized species, with a far more enigmatic truth behind it all. https://newearth.media/7573-2/ Inheritance[edit] If both of a child’s parents are Rh negative, the child will definitely be Rh negative. Otherwise the child may be Rh positive or Rh negative, depending on the parents' specific genotypes.[29] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rh_blood_group_system

    JAY Z & the KALIEF BROWDER STORY

    My parents are just ordinary ol color folk. And i know several "black" people besides my kids and brother who are O, RH negative and one of them is medium brown skin. i think Troy said his daughters were that type because we've discussed this before when i joke about me being an alien since that's another theory about this blood type. 18% of the population of this country are RH negative and this undoubtedly includes at least thousands of "blacks". As you know, this blood type is considered the universal donor because it can be transfused to any other blood type. Do a little more research on the subject.

    yes indeed. Lol. I don't know, I try to use a timeline along with secular scholars especially about the history that revolves around ancient Egypt, and I see some accurate correlations. But yes, in the past, Biblical references were confusing based upon what so-called 'Christians have taught'. Are you saying that you have no recent parent that was not European? Wow. that is not the norm for certain. President Obama's mother passed this onto him but like you, but he is the male. So I don't know. I've read where an African woman gave birth to two sons and during her third pregnancy, she was told that she was rh negative. If the doctors are lying and giving these injections to these White women, then they need to go to court! LOL.

    R.I.P.

    Welll, Aretha, although she was a Detroit girl, was signed with Atlantic Records during the Motown era back in the early 60s. She didn't make a big splash on the scene because back then R&B music had a galaxy of stars all making waves. Some were one-hit wonders, others like, Diana Ross and Stevie Wonder and Smokey Robinson endured to this day, like she did. I guess "Respect" was what propelled her forward in the company of other divas like Tina Turner and Patti LaBelle and Dionne Warwick and Gladys Knight and Natalie Cole. Gradually, after regularly turning out hits, she just became a permanent fixture in the world of soul music. She was among the first musicians to be identified simply by their first name. "Aretha" was all fans had to hear, and in time, typical of black folks, Aretha was further shortened to just Rhee-Rhee. Her public watched her go through a lot of transformations as her weight fluctuated and she alternated between slim and buxom, always glamorous and glitzy. To me, she was like an old friend who i just took for granted. There was always an Aretha song out for me to sing along with. Altho, her powerful voice was what people were riveted by, she was also a great self-taught pianist. She started lessons as a child, but her teacher advised her parents to let her just develop on her own because she was a prodigy who needed no lessons. She had roots as a gospel music like many black singers and her earliest performances were in the church. She led a very interesting as well as tragic life which i learned about after reading one of the several biographies about her. Her father, Reverend C. L. Franklin, was a well known Baptist minister and civil rights activist who was a friend and contemporary of MLK. She will be missed but her music lives on.
