Other Comics / THE NEW STANDARD? (Hollywood and Comics)
« on: April 11, 2010, 07:36:57 pm »
It appears as though a beautiful trend is manifesting itself in Hollywood and beyond.......

big name stars joining forces with established comic vets to produce and create quality product. 

Kyle Baker partnering with Shaquille Oneal to create a comic/entertainment studio........ Wesley Snipes teaming with director Antoine Fuqua on the new post-apocalyptic comic AFTER DARK..... Wesley Snipes partnering with Mshindo Kuumba on the forthcoming sci-fi cinemagraphic series OMANDI MECH 5...... Tyrese Gibson's comic venture MAYHEM....... Rosario Dawson's comic/film venture OCCULT CRIMES TASK FORCE, being some of the latest and best examples.

I see this as a direct sign that this medium is now fully acknowledged as a viable and respected vehicle to tell stories and to generate mega-bucks in today's marketplace.

Exciting times to be a creator........ exciting times.

The thread title did make me do a double-take. I know I've not been on here as much, but I felt like it was an extreme reaction.

This article is insluting, even in its attempt to give us props...... "We can now say with confidence that sub-Saharan Africans were studying math and science over 300 years ago"...... are you kidding me?

???

The pyramid complexes in the Sudan (which outdate the pyramids of Egypt/Kemet) are architectural and mathematical masterpieces.



but let's start with the African origin of fractal mathematics.......




Perhaps they meant to say..... "We can now say with confidence that sub-Saharan Africans were studying math and science over 3000 years ago"!!!!!! (Even that is a conservative number.)

Mr Hudlin have you ever heard of Valaida Snow? I read a lot this summer ;)

I have not.  Tell me more.


Valaida Snow is a legend waiting to be discovered. She was a musical prodigy. From a musical family she played at least 8 instruments at world class level including the trumpet (Louis Armstrong called her the "second best in the world")sax, cello, bass and violin. She was also a tremendous singer, dancer, song writer and band leader. She played from time to time with Duke Ellington but declined a permanent spot in order to travel the world with her all female band. She had a morphine addiction and touring in Denmark was arrested by the Nazis and put in a concentration camp but after a year and a half was released in a prisoner exchange. She never really recovered and died hours after a show at the Apollo. She was called "the Queen of Jazz" by many. There is a fictionalized novel on her life called "Valaida" but I think she would make a tremendous movie and I wish someone (Bogle?) would do a good biography.


Just thought I'd share some of what I found on the incomparable Valaida Snow. Thanks again for the inspiration Princesa!   ;)







Valaida Snow (born June 2, 1905, Chattanooga, Tennessee; died May 30, 1956, New York City) was an African American jazz musician and entertainer. Raised in Cleveland City, Tennessee by a family devoted to music, she learned to play cello, bass, banjo, violin, mandolin, harp, accordion, clarinet, trumpet, and saxophone at professional levels by the time she was 15.





Excellent video of bio presented by Tim Reid (only 8 minutes), but WOWWWW what a woman!!!!! I'm disgusted I've never heard of her. She was at her peak around the time of the Nazi invasion... Josephine Baker tried to urge her to return to the U.S. to avoid the Nazis, but she didn't listen.... ended up spending 18 months as the only Black in a Nazi P.O.W. camp..... released on a prisoner exchange weighing only 65 pounds. (Good god.) A forgotten jewel.  :(

Wow! Didn't know about this. Powerful indeed. The more i read history the more hateful i become. What to do with that hate is the question. Why they wanna burry this so no one knows about it? All these goddamn Nazi films and never a mention of this? Wow. >:(

Try to channel that hate into a love and worship of those ancestors who resisted the madness and the genocide. We are SO STRONG.... SO RESILLIENT.... our history is SECOND TO NONE!!!!!

I am proud to come from the stock of the survivors of the Middle Passage... the survivors of the Nazi ovens..... the survivors of the lynch mobs and attack dogs and forced sterilization and rape and genetic experiments.

They've thrown the whole kitchen sink at us..... yet we still stand.

THANK YOU FOR THIS! I am going to research her immediately! So many ancestors waiting to be recognized and CELEBRATED!!!!!

In Mein Kampf, Hitler wrote about his plans for these " Rhineland Bastards".

When he came to power, one of his first directives was aimed at these mixed-race children.  Underscoring Hitler's obsession with racial purity, by 1937, every identified mixed-race child in the Rhineland had been forcibly sterilized, in order to prevent further "race polluting", as Hitler termed it.


 
Quote
Some Black Germans were able to eke out a living during Hitler's reign of terror by performing in Vaudeville shows, but many Blacks, steadfast in their belief that they were German first, Black second, opted to remain in Germany .  Some fought with the Nazis (a few even became Lut waffe pilots)!  Unfortunately, many Black Germans were arrested, charged with treason, and shipped in cattle cars to concentration camps.  Often these trains were so packed with people and (equipped with no bathroom facilities or food), that, after the four-day journey, box car doors were opened to piles of the dead and dying.

 Once inside the concentration camps, Blacks were given the worst jobs conceivable.  Some Black American soldiers, who were captured and held as prisoners of war, recounted that, while they were being starved and forced into dangerous labor (violating the Geneva Convention), they were still better off than Black German concentration camp detainees, who were forced to do the unthinkable- - man the crematoriums and work in labs where genetic experiments were being conducted.  As a final sacrifice, these Blacks were killed every three months so that they would never be able to reveal the inner workings of the "Final Sol ution".


THANK YOU FOR THIS.
