  • Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!




  • Good-afternoon everyone… As one can see, I haven't been updating the site on a regular basis for a while... At this time, I am focusing on promoting my current project which is; ThyBlackMan.com... Still know that poetry will forever be apart of my life... With that, there are a few new poets I would like to introduce to all... First, there is the talented poetess, Maleeka M., who is also an active member over at our poetry board... The following pieces will touch your soul and don't be afraid to give yourself to the Lord; Poetry, Losing Baby, He's close to me, I needed (Revised), and Faith Lost but Found... Next, brother Willie Wright sent a few pieces our way... Like I had said before glad to see brothers embracing this beautiful art-form; My mind, I Miss You, Just An Onion, The Sixth Sense, and Childhood vs. Adulthood... Well, Cherry Muchindu has also joined the crowd this go around... Yes, this young Zamabian lady words shall dance before your eyes... Indeed, it's nice to know my kin folk from afar, yes Mother Africa also is absorbing poetry literally; GREEN DAYS, MR BLACK MAN, Pleasurable Taboo, DON'T BREATHE, LIVE, and CALLING FOR TROUBLE....

    With that, the famous writers section now has more poems for one to read over... Glad to add more of Forrest Hamer work, as this brother is part of the new generation... Shall carry the poetic torch for the coming years; Pica, Middle Ear, Crossroads, Getting Happy, and 13 Suppositions about the Ubiquitous... This sister needs no introduction as even in death June Jordan continues to enrich the lives of poets alike; These Poems, from Who look at me?, Poem about My Rights, What Would I Do White, Alla Tha's All Right, but, If You Saw a Negro Lady , One Minus One Minus One, and Poem about Police Violence... Well, Margaret Walker quietly touched millions as sometimes one just has to allow thy poetry to speak on thy behalf; Lineage, Childhood, Kissie Lee, For My People, For Malcolm X, Big John Henry, Love Song for Alex, 1979, Long John Nelson And Sweetiepie, and THE STRUGGLE STAGGERS US... Oddly enough many of you fail to realize there was poetry before Maya Angelou, Nikki Giovanni and so on... During that era, the early 1900's there where poets like Jessie Redmon Fauset... Do take the time to intake her words; Touche, Rondeau, Rencontre, Oriflamme, Rain Fugue, Stars in Alabama, "Courage!" He said, Christmas Eve In France, and Lolotte, Who Attires My Hair...

    So glad to see a poet like Harryette Mullen garner a little attention... This sister has her own writing style which is a good thing; Any Lit, Way Opposite, [up from slobbery], [marry at a hotel, annul 'em], and [if your complexion is a mess]... Another poetic legend that is no longer with us is Carolyn Marie Rodgers… She repped Chicago to the fullest... Enjoy more of her poetry; Prodigal Objects, Food for Thought, East of New Haven, and In The Shadow of Turning: Throwing Salt... The jazz man himself Eugene B. Redmond continues to delight, yes move the crowd... So we have decided to post more his poems; A Kwansaba for Mother Richie, Lookingback, Jazzstained Jayne, A Tale Of Two Toms (Or Tom-Tom), and Choreo-Empress' Leg-a-cy Lands on East Saint Earth, 2nd Take... Neo Griot poet Kalamu Ya Salaam who is a native of New Orleans, LA continues to teach, and assist those in the community… That's great, and more of us need to follow his lead… With that feel free to click on the following links… Yes KY Salaam poetry for all; Love, Madpoet, (untitled), Tasty Knees, HIWAY BLUES, We Say, Bechet, PA FERDINAND, Be About Beauty, i'm looking for a love, NTOZAKE SHANGE, NAMES, PLACES, US, Govern Yrself Accordingly, all that's black ain't brother, even death will not stop me from struggling, and ...AND RAISE BEAUTY TO ANOTHER LEVEL OF SWEETNESS... Mr. Africa - September 2, 2011

    In closing, I just would like to acknowledge and thank all who have visited us on a daily/monthly basis for the last 8 plus years... I know for a fact many of you have grown up literally and do continue to walk along side poetry... That is poetic if I may say so myself... ~ Smile ~
