    How Ann Gorman Became A Wife from the film Follow ME Quietly This film starts off with a woman standing in the rain, unknown reason. We discover she is a reporter, ambitious and has a lead on a story concerning a mass murderer. She is brushed off and then goes into the law enforcers home, hoping to regale him to give her the case. He accepts and then the next day when she tells him what she wrote he rejects it. She later meets him on the beat and then before she walks out of his like, he admits stronger feelings. Then she helps him in the case, and after talking the officer has a general locale. And then she is sitting in the diner side him, the case closed. All the while she has not actually done any reporting after confessing she need the money. And in the end, she is off to be married, to the rude cop.

    My The MAgicians Submission is a monogram. A monogram is when letters are placed together in a shape. In my case, I did not use a strict european style and used a more arabesque style, not well defined like a tughra or as intricate as the Jeli Diwani, but having some aspect from the Jeli Diwani style. Can you interpret what the monogram say? Below I linked the submission , on deviantart, as well as a video to me creating a color pencil version, on google photos. I compared a colored pencil, graphite pencil, ink using felt tip pen and in the end, I chose the ink felt tip pen, which was nice, cause I wanted to do something ink based in October, for inktober, though to be fair, I have been primarily inking in submissions for a bit now. My scanner failed to create the result I liked, I needed quite a few adjustments to get it decent. But I will improve this process. I had fun.

I will improve. https://photos.app.goo.gl/WpMPV2br839dvuTc8

    Peola Edit - Immitation To Life 1934 video link https://photos.app.goo.gl/ygTE8oLvs651m3V86 From a easy glance Delilah can be deemed the prototypical Black Mamme. But, if you listen clear to Delilah ,while her manners toward white people is never not :congenial; happy; thankful or similar tone, she never suggest her motherhood to Peola is in adoration to her being "so light" or "high skin"; but her adoration is to her daughter whom she incubated. Throughout the Peola edit Delilah constantly opposes suggestions from Beatrice Pullman that Peola need to live in her fantasy or hide from truth; while she also never suggest her motherhood is erroneous in loving but did apologize for exposing her. Throughout the edit, Peola's inability to accept her background or contrast to her mom escalates: from childhood being called black or her passing failing, going to a high tone black folk negro school, to passing as a white female working in a store, to her passing ultimatum that crushed her mother heart; in the timeline, the relationship between blacks side whites is a constant unchanging factor, even though the story show no straight violence. Sequentially, Peola unaccepting stance has no communal or collective aid in a changing environment beyond herself or her mother; Delilah comprehend her only solution will be in herself, as she allude to peola father inability. In the end, the quantity from black people in Delilah funeral does not show a black woman who merely rejected owning 20% to a hit firm; but a black woman who clearly helped many more in the black community than suggested in any public way. I will say, the phrase from Peola, "I killed my own mother" , while common drama from the time is untrue. The environment killed your mother, through the death from peola father and then peola passing ultimatum. The environment in the u.s.a. made two people delilah love despise their person or feel unsettle constantly, leading to both killing themself in one way <father murdering himself through exhaustion or physical> or another <peopla rejecting her mother in public thus killing the existence to herself>. If anything the lesson in the Peola edit is how hopeful can a person be. Delilah hope/faith when alive was not enough to save her husband or her daughter. In death, her daughter had illumination or an epiphany. But how many will give their life to hope and simply not give up on hope like Delilah? your thoughts?

    Song: Nonqonqo (To Those We Love) link https://photos.app.goo.gl/dKeXz3NEExQRWbgq7 Singer: Letta Mbulu's side Choir Writer: Miriam Makeba. Film: A Warm December Film Score writer/conductor: Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson Thespian in scene: Esther Anderson side Sidney Poitier A Warm December is not a pure or honest Black Film, the writer was white. Like Black PAnther or Shaft, Black thespians or directors is not enough to be a true Black Film. Black people need to be producer/director/writer/thespians to make a true black film, sequentially many films do not fit that bill. But, in terms of interpretations to Black life in film, the loving between the lead couple in A Warm December is unique. First, it is not fornicatively raw. The film show passion but not lust, and that is rare in imaginations concerning black lovers in film. The reason is not unknown. Only a people can describe their existence best. The article linked immediately below list film the article author consider Black cinema. If Black Cinema is defined as Cinema where Black people are producers in essential/director(s) in majority/thespians in majority/writer(s) in majority what film in said list are valid? https://blackinmotionpictures.tumblr.com/post/175078478469/the-top-10-highest-grossing-films-in-black-cinema The answer is : Girls Trip, Get Out from the top ten in that list. I am not suggesting that Black thespians/writers/directors/producers are blockaded from working side non blacks, especially in modern USA. But, if a film is not dominated by any particular phenotypical group in creation then it is a statian film; no particular phenotypical label is warranted. ...Well, the lyrics to the song is below, enjoy and I hope if you have not seen the film you will.

    After reading the article defend integrated peaceful multiversity/multiculturalism as more successful in any government than monoverse or monocultural domination over other cultures? The article make a great point. Many people in the usa speak the idea that peaceful integrated multicultures is positive, advantageous... but provide examples. Let us be honest, Every government in the American continent <usa/mexico/haiti/brazil> all started based on one culture or community. Whites in the usa/blancos in brasil/negroes in haiti/mestizoes in mexico. In history, the romans, british empire, japanese empire all were monocultural in creation or expansion. Countries like China or Kemet <egypt> in composition utilized multiculturalism but it was through war, whether Narmer or the Mad Matyr. The Mongols were started or expanded monoculturally, but after Temujin died, the pieces to the empire reflected the culture each had in it which each mongol leader accepted. https://www.creators.com/read/pat-buchanan/09/18/the-unpardonable-heresy-of-tucker-carlson

    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?

I was unable to find out the writers to these songs Aretha: A Woman Falling Out of Love 2011 "Think" Aretha FranklinWhite "Angel" Carolyn FranklinSonny Saunders A Brand New Me 2017 It ends with Respect from Otis Redding, not accidental to me, she really liked Redding, Cooke and those Southern Balladeers. 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.
