Higher!(WOW!)

So COMPLETE a work of Art as Informative

 

JUST YESTERDAY I gave an 8 minute teaching demonstration that included my breakdown of the rise of Mass Culture as a key root of good and bad cultural developments in the 1920s

Directly in reference to the inspiring lyrical content.  Bravo, more please!

LIFE ANTHEMS! ~ Games Begin

I love my friends!

One of my MOSST MEANINGFUL favorite Life Anthems.

Since, BUT Only for, this Post-Stroke Rehab period, AFRISPORA has turned into only a blog/vlog.

Appreciate my real world and online folks that have ‘Held Me Down’ as I probably me first heard Q-Tip say in a verse. It radiated a MEANING then almost 30 years ago.

It is easy yet hard to explain but should one have to…? As Jalen Rose puts it, “It’s ‘Cultural!’ Yup, I agree bruh.

LIVE INSPIRED! ~ Blu Matic Beats

IWOW what a find today…the joint “Ocean Breeze” even brought forth tears as I am dealing with some MAJOR life challenges that have me “off my square” as I have heard said but it was therapeutic to be thankful to be reflective and self-care via music as I have subconsciously and consciously been doing ALL MY LIFE…

…I chose Academics but have less tapped Artistic and past Athletic abilities…but “I ain’t dead yet!”

🙂 Enjoy and be Enlightened and Empowered,

Dr. Clayborne

SALUTE! ~ Mndsgn

Overdue!  I was an instant fan, so not the first post.

Hate that I was rehabbing from Spring 2014 thrugh Winter 2015, literally right as a number of my favorite artists, some of whom aremusical artists that across the board are Dope, but the Ras G + Mndgn gigs had to be interstellar.

Now it just came full circle…so a true FWD!So Knxwledge of MxWrries fame builds with Mndsgn too, not just Ras G of not

Ahh yeah…

“Africa Channel” presentation (2017)

4hero4Life ~ 4 Elements

LIFE ANTHEMS! ~ “I Can”

By Nas

This is a reminder of WHY HE WEARS THE TITLE OF THE DOPEST TO DO IT WELL…

Just tuning into Afrispora TV  for ‘quality control’.

Nas has me up after mid-past 4am rapping along thinking of how my daughter will be hesring the song today and my more days as should I and many of you all and others perhaps.

Well, I know that the Jungle Bros., then De La Soul and deepened by ATCQ, I learned about World and  African history as I linked up with other ‘hip hop nerds’ (a term I have come to think of us as fitting) at UC San Diego, the University of Ghana (Legon).

I have noticed we are way more INTERCONNECTED than we think and can do as Tidal is doing, put simply making others lanes, opportunities and possibiliies.

This is #1 just off of ALL OF IT, He summed World and African history SOMETHING ‘NICE-LIKE’.


I must use this video in class as a presentation.

We will just work our why through the song.  An ‘aha’!

Just came to me that actually have  used this track to introduce a presentation I  gave at Santa Monica College in 2013 (pre-stroke) to the Black Collegians

where I an Adjunct Professor who has taught African, African-American, World, Western Civilization and U.S. histories.
