The time has come to harvest. With just this side of two months remaining in this centennial of a Jazz culture true original, it has fallen upon me that I now focus my attention on presenting a fitting finale, to my study of the life and legacy of Daniel Moses Barker. I find myself referring to various excerpts presented in… Continue

“I remember them; they would get violently angry if you asked them about their religion... which they newly joined.”



It's a touchy subject... religion. Nevertheless, Danny Barker stood his ground. I would say that Danny realized that something larger was a stake, in the story of Black people in America. Perhaps he also saw that Islam, “one of the great religions of the world,” would eventually take the world's spotlight. Thus, Danny Barker made this an issue worthy of his scrutiny,… Continue

Let's play this one by the numbers. Daniel Moses Barker was born in 1909. He relocated to New York in 1930 at the age of 21 years; thus completing his third seven-year cycle. In his earliest times in Harlem, Danny encountered some of the greatest minds of the 20th century. (Langston Hughes embodied one of such.)

RIP BUNNY, THANK YOU FOR A LIFE OF GREAT MUSIC

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN...

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
