Hello, Beautiful Readers of The Soultown!
This issue is a Black Lives Matter issue of The Soultown. Many of the submissions address in some way the current socio/political movement. Regular readers know that this is a Black Lives Matter publication, before and beyond the movement.
Queen Gabby and Big Q are getting into some of the very interesting and engaging ways that middle-aged (old-school) activists can participate in the current Black Lives Matter movement and Leave it Up To Steve to break down a very effective plan of action.
There is a pandemic sweeping our nation, still! Dr. Rainey addresses the passage of 2020 (July already) and the significance of some events in the context of how COVID 19 has made us all vulnerable and strong at the same time, while Rogette Harris shares with you Real Talk on details of the vile nature of what is affecting the general health of the country -- a must-read!
Chillin da Conscious Poet, The Soultown’s Publisher took The Soultown mobile out to check the pulse and got an interesting Black Lives Matter interaction to share through an engaging sit down with a couple behind a very visible symbol of support and a look at yet another voice of the movement through some amazing creations of artists from within the struggle.
Meme’s recipe is a delicious dessert following a Black Lives Matter entree with LaTanya’s NAACP facts sprinkled throughout and much more for you all to enjoy and ponder on, while I have borrowed a soap box to stand on for just a few minutes with a Black Lives Matter editorial to wrap up this topical issue of The Soultown.
I am Haisan 2X and I'd like to thank our beautiful readers for having SOUL!
This is a collectors issue and is available by ordering online.
For my birthday this year, it would mean the world to me if you could help me help those who cannot help themselves by gifting them a quarterly subscription to The Soultown Magazine. I made a promise to my ancestors in 2007 while standing in Les Maison des Esclaves (the House of Slaves) on Goree Island, off the coast of Dakar, Senegal, West Africa. I promised them that I would discover a way to tell their stories to their great, great, great, great, great-grandchildren -- to educate them about their triumphs and their struggles.
