A prison spokeswoman, Robin Lucas, attributed the death to unspecified natural causes.

Move is best known for the 24-hour siege at one of its houses in Philadelphia in 1985 that ended when the state police dropped a bomb, touching off a fire — the worst in the city’s history — that left 11 people dead and destroyed more than 60 homes. Phil Africa was in prison at the time.

Born William Phillips on Jan. 1, 1956, he…

MLK More Than a Monument

politics from the eyes of an ebony mom

mlk monument
As we remember Dr. King today we are humbled by his contribution, but we can not be intimidated by it. King has been immortalized in the DC mall and it hard to reconcile that he was just a man. He was human not super-human, a man not a superman, a child of God, not a God. When see him as a man and recognize his humanity and his flaws then we can see our contribution might not be like his but we are capable of doing something. We can do more. We have to enlarge our prayer from “us four and no more” to what can I do in my world? Share your thoughts.

Martin Luther King Jr. was an ordinary man who did extraordinary things

politics from the eyes of an ebony mom

mlk fan
The Martin Luther King Jr. fan was a staple in the black church. He looked serene and angelic and we revered him. He was celebrated, but at some point the celebration turned into adoration, and he became high and lifted up, but he was just a man. He was mortal and he had all the human flaws that we all struggle with and against, but he made a decision to do something. He could have had a comfortable life free from controversy, but that is not the path he followed. What is your path? What do you see in your world that is worthy of changing? We often say I can’t do everything, but is the other option to do nothing? For far too many years we have tried to measure up to an ideal and that is not fair to us nor was it fair to him. The church…

Selma opens up old wounds while inspiring new generations

Today I saw Selma. Some parts are hard to watch. The police brutality leaves you speechless, but you know that it happened and we need to be reminded. The movie does not seek to canonize Dr. King. We get an opportunity to see him as a man. A man who smoked, drank and slept with other women. No these dimensions of his personality might not have been pretty but that did not stop him from being the leader the movement needed. Too often people simply don’t remember that people died for the right to vote. Young, middle-aged and old people collectively pursued what seemed impossible, but their efforts and the signature of President Johnson made it happen. You will laugh, cry and you will be inspired.
