Pamela Sneed - There There

I didn't learn about Oludumare, Elegba, Oshun, Yemaya, Oya, and Shango until I was 15 years old. I kept reading these names in all the literature but never truly grasped it all until I was about 18.

My uncle, a baptist minister his whole life, decided to get a formal theological training that resulted in a Doctorate of Divinity. The second doctorate in our family (the first is a neuroscientist). We had a conversation in which he compared the African American worship experiences to Youruba, Santeria, Voudon practices.

I picked up Imagine Being More Afraid of Freedom Than Slavery at the now-closed Foozles (R.I.P.) which is somehow signed! In the following video of poem "There, There" Pamela Sneed recounts her connections to these practices.





I haven't picked up Kong yet. But if you have, add your review in the comments below.

  4. Walsh has treated individuals, couples and families for a
    variety of mental-health concerns, including personality disorders, anger management, eating and substance disorders and depression.
    I like them because they are super easy to make
    and taste amazing. All these factors add-up to cost a
    fortune, but indeed, a baby is worth it all.

  5. This shop is stocked to the ceiling with unique
    lamps, rugs, throws, and other cross-cultural finds that can add personality to any
    room or living space. This is the store to go to for decorations, stocking stuffers, toys,
    cleaning supplies, some personal items and holiday or non-holiday paper products.
    I didn't spend time digging through clothing at all, as it is laid out on long tables with a small edge.

  9. Yet another terrific feature of a Solar Powered Attic Fan
    is that they come set to install and entirely
    assembled making the installation process quick and uncomplicated.
    Next, hang any clothing you are keeping back up, grouping them into their categories.
    The problem is, you cannot see everything they're doing.
