  1. Thanks Troy. Nice to be back.
  2. This little gem arrived and am about half way through.
  3. That's a crying shame. I can only imagine just how difficult it is to get a book published.
  4. Not just listening but watching too.
  5. @Troy. Slightly off topic, I'd dearly love to buy books from your shop or indeed any other black owned your side of the pond, but the problem I have is not so much the price of the books but when combined with shipping it workouts overall a little too expensive for ME. I DO buy from indies over here but out of the three I really like only one is black run and that's New Beacon.
  6. Having never read any of Glaude's previous books, what better way to start than on a book of our man Jimmy.
  7. I thought you had wrote more than one book but I could only see JUST the one unless my eyesight is failing me, ha ha.
  8. Hope all goes well for you in Tulsa. The Black Wall St stuff will be very interesting. Nice one.
  9. This arrived a few days back. A good read with essays and poetry.
  10. Having huge problems with posting this in the What are you Listening to now thread for some reason. Probably something to do with the device I'm using so I'll have to make do with it here. I think this is from 1972. I could be a year out mind.
  11. Much obliged. Will have a look shortly.
  12. @Mel Hopkins. Could you kindly post a link for your books? I'm very curious.
  13. Just ordered the book from an indie over here. Can't wait to read it.
  14. Very interesting interview with the author and Cornell West.
  15. Not a massive fan of this band though I do have several of their albums but this is one of the highlights from the IOW 1970 festival for me.
  16. There are at least a couple of biographies on Curtis. The most recent one I've listed on this thread. Highly recommended. I love Curtis and rate his debut album very highly. Keep on keeping on.
  17. Ha ha, yeah. Where was this taken?
  18. This book caught my eye somewhere. Originally published in 1966.
  19. I recently bought the Essential Gwendolyn Brooks. Absolutely love it.
  20. Discovered this author and book completely by accident. And here is one of her videos from her you tube channel. https://youtu.be/-61x3eWRrJQ https://www.abreezeharper.com/
  21. This poem was sent to Huey Newton in 1971 by a supporter or fellow Panther. An African mind with black people at heart; my mind is to(o) heavy for America to take apart. Bobby Seale is free; Ericka Huggins is free; Huey P Newton is free; Connie Tucker is free; Soon Angela Davis will be. Now I feel the liberation of me(the masses); I can feel the vibration of liberation. Hey black man you see these tears in my eyes. Hey black man you see these tears rolling down my cheeks!! It's a cry of black bea
  22. I did feel a little guilty but as I had just purchased two books, I noticed this on sale in a local book shop and desperately wanted to read it, so off I trotted to the library. But I'm going to buy it at some stage.
  23. Been wanting to read this for a while. Got a great deal too. Just £15. Well pleased.
  24. Ok, not a website but some other domain. Somewhere to read his poetry.
