The Mboka Literary Festival, Gambia

I’ve been in the Gambia since November the 30th, where I facilitated the first Self Love Retreat; I’ve also been editing a book on African Wholistic Health, writing, and doing book signings!

I had the pleasure of taking part in The Mboka Literary Festival (even though I wasn’t on their program) where I had a stand at their Books, Art and Crafts fair, held at the Senegambia Hotel.  I met a lovely siSTAR there who was quick in capturing ‘the moment’:

(the voice behind the camera – and brothas, she’s single!)

I didn’t tell her to say I was a famous author but I receive it lol.  I also had the opportunity to talk with some youth about my book, and to performed my poem ‘Who Am I?‘ which I wrote back in 2005 when I first discovered that my roots were in Africa:

The festival has been a wonderful bonus to my work-holiday, and to top it off, I also had the pleasure of meeting the legendary dub poet Linton Kwesi Johnson, who was the main act on the bill for the Festival – I saw him perform live at the Ebunjan Theatre, only his poetry wasn’t accompanied by the dub music which he’s famous for!

I’m grateful to be avoiding the cold, English weather, but I’m missing my 3 ‘suns’, and would have loved for them to been able to join me over the new year period – I’m working towards them being able to join me anywhere I am in the world!  This is my process of Self-actualization (creating my life on my own terms).  While here, I’ve been inspired to write my first speech on the topic! It’s called ‘Use Your Subconscious Mind to Create the Life YOU Choose’, which I’m aiming to have finished, memorized and recorded before the next Self Love Retreat is due to start next month!  My universe has supported me by introducing me to a videographer (a UK brother who’s been living in the Gambia for the last 12 years),  While writing the speech I was inspired to create a video for my poem ‘Fertile Soil’ which happens to support what my speech is all about; it explains how your subconscious mind is the fertile soil into which your thought-seeds are planted, and is illustrated by two of my paintings:

My books are being well received here in the Gambia, especially as there’s so many UK peeps living here!

Zora (loctitian, on the right) posted this about Journey of a Sister on her Facebook page:

Review of the Big Launch, Join us for the rest of the Tour!

If you missed the Big Launch of the Kings & Queens Book Tour, you really missed out!

I explained why I had invited TC Carrier, author of ‘The Secret Science of Black Male & Female Sex‘ and King Kevin Dorival, author of ‘7 Types of Queens, Kings Desire‘ over from the USA to join me on this tour, and how our books compliment each other’s.

In the first session (1-3pm) myself, TC Carrier and Kevin Dorival answered questions from the audience; not many people had read our books yet, so it was more of an introduction about what we do, why we’ve organised the Kings & Queens Book Tour, and to purchase the books to read ahead of the following events.

Some people enjoyed the first session so much, that they purchased tickets for the second session (4-7pm) organised by Lady Tamar of Kings & Queens United.

King Kevin Dorival talked about the 7 Queen Types, and TC Carrier did a very engaging presentation called ‘Law of Gender‘ where he explained the roles of the Masculine and Feminine Energies.  Watch this short clip where TC answers his question “What is most important, the Masculine or Feminine inner-g?” during ‘the battle of the sexes’:

The men reasoning what it means to be a King:

I was so honored to have the great historian Robin Walker join us at the Launch – he even bought my book! I did a course with him about 5 years ago, which really helped to build Self and Racial Esteem – we had a rich history BEFORE slavery!  His book ‘When We Ruled’ fitted in nice with the theme of the tour, and I was so chuffed that he took time out of his busy schedule to attend.  He runs Black History classes every Sunday afternoon, which are funded by his organization, if you’re interested in attending email him at historicalwalker@yahoo.com

Afterwards, Richie from BlackIceTV7 interviewed some of the attendees to get their feedback on the event which will be included in their footage:

DJ Supreme from Conscious radio also interviewed some of the attendees:

The tour ends on Sunday 8th Octoberdon’t miss the rest of the events!

Join us TOMORROW Wednesday 4th October from 5-7.30pm at Marcus Garvey Library, 1 Philip Lane N15 4JA for a session aimed at both youth and adults, based upon TC Carrier’s other book ‘Black Son Rising; Re-awakening the Warrior DNA in Black Men‘ (Marcus Garvey Library  is situated inside Tottenham Green Leisure Centre) This is a FREE event, just turn up!

You’ll get a FREE signed copy of my Self-help novel ‘Journey of a Sister‘ when you book your ticket for the last day of the tour at Brixton Library on Sunday 8th Oct 4-7pm! This is the culmination of the whole tour, where we will recap on everything we’ve learned during the week, how we can move forward to building empires together, and building sustainable Black relationships! Come and join in the discussion “How do we reclaim our thrones?” (our rightful position in society)  NOT TO BE MISSED! Tickets are £8 in advance (£10 on the door)

I’d like to say a big THANK YOU to all the people who have helped and are helping to make this vision a reality, and especially to Mr Terry Riggs of Nu Beginnings, Richie of BlackIceTV7, Debrose of Natural November, Tamar of Kings & Queens United, Andrew of Blacklinks Global, bro Dougie of SLR Radio, Clive Hewitt (photographer) and to all who attended and plan to attend the rest of the tour!

(You can also reserve your signed copy of the paperback for just £5 (HALF PRICE) and collect it on the day)

Haven’t read it yet? Download the  e-book FREE!

Journey of a Sister is the story of a young woman raised in the ‘faith’, who reaches a point where she begins to question what she was taught to believe.  She writes God a fearless letter, asking all the questions the church couldn’t answer, and ends it by asking for “the Truth!”.  Join Suzanne on her quest for “the Truth!” about sex before marriage, the creative power of her thoughts, her African ancestry, and the history of the religion she had been indoctrinated into!  It is a beautiful Black Love story that breaks some unspoken taboos in a thought-provoking yet enlightening way that thousands of women and men can relate to, download Years 1-11 FREE!

If you’re free, join me at Hackney Central Library, 1 Reading Lane E8 (opposite Hackney Empire) on Wednesday 6th September from 5.30-7.30pm to discuss the topics raised in the story.  You can also get the paperback which includes Years 12 & 13  for just £5.00 – HALF PRICE!  (To avoid queuing to get your book signed on the day, reserve it when you book your free ticket)

I will also be paving the way for two authors who will be joining me from the USA to take part in the Kings and Queens Book Tour from 1-8th October:

King Kevin Dorival is author of ‘7 Types of Queens, Kings Desire‘ (I wrote the Foreword), and TC Carrier is author of ‘The Secret Science of Black Male and Female Sex‘.  In Year 8 of ‘Journey of a Sister‘  I ‘channelled’ a scene where the couple performed their first sex ritual.  TC’s book explains the science behind these rituals!  It’s no wonder religion is used to suppress our sexual energy – this is where our power lies!  Our ancestors built great civilizations by harnessing their sexual energy, which is a powerful creative force.  Join us on the Kings & Queens Book Tour to explore how we can become great again, and rebuild our empires!

Join us on the Kings and Queens Book Tour (London) 1-8 Oct!

Black History Month is an opportunity to explore how our past has affected the way we relate to each other today, and what we can do to heal, so that we can reclaim our greatness!  Our ancestors built great civilizations, and the key to us rebuilding our empires is buried in our DNA.  How did they do it?  It was connected with their sexual energy. In today’s society, we are taught to dissipate our sexual energy, instead of harnessing this powerful creative force.

I have invited two authors from the USA to join me on the Kings and Queens Book Tour, (1-8 Oct), which will cover North, South, East and West London!

 King Kevin Dorival is author of ‘7 Types of Queens, Kings Desire‘ (I wrote the Foreword), and TC Carrier is author of ‘The Secret Science of Black Male and Female Sex‘.   Their books compliment my Self-help novel ‘Journey of a Sister‘, and all 3 books will help YOU on your own journey of Self-discovery and Self-healing, and help you re-member your power as a melanin-rich being!

What does it mean to be a King or a Queen? (How can you tell if you are one)  How do you become one? (if you’re not already) What TYPE of Queen are you?  (so you can attract the right type of King), What happens when a King finds a Queen?  (What can they achieve together)

Come and find out in a series of Book Signing & Discussion Events, Workshops, and Lectures!  (This will also be an opportunity to meet other Kings and Queens, or King and Queens in the making).  The schedule is as follows:

Sunday 1st Oct, 146 Great Queen Street, Blackfriars EC1V 1-3pm (FREE – donations welcome)

Join us at the Launch of the Kings & Queens Book Tour, where you’ll be able to meet both authors for the first time – and myself of course! I will be interviewing King Kevin and TC Carrier, and this will also be your opportunity to ask them any questions!  The topic of discussion will be ‘What Does it Mean to be a King or a Queen?‘  Come and join in the discussion! Monies cannot be collected at the venue, so if you would like to make a contribution to the Kings & Queens Book Tour, please do so when you  >> Book your tickets here <<  (will go towards travel, accommodation, meals, filming, photography, marketing etc.)

Wednesday 4th Oct 5.30-7.30pm, Marcus Garvey Library, Tottenham N15 (FREE, donations welcome)

This event is focused on King Kevin and TC Carrier’s other books ‘Courage to Believe‘, and ‘Black Son Rising; Re-awakening the Warrior DNA in Black Men.  This session is ideal for men and youth, not to say queens can’t attend! (especially if you’re raising princes).  Both Kevin and TC are youth mentors in the USA,  and are keen to connect with the youth in our community, especially those who are struggling with the system.  It would be a good idea to purchase your books online and read them before the session; If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you can borrow both e-books from their lending library FREE!   Order the paperbacks in advance, read them so you can join in the discussion, and they’ll sign them for you on the day!

Thursday 5th Oct 2-5pm, 6-9pm, Ankh Wellbeing Centre, W12 (£15-£25)

These are more intimate workshops with each author; from 2-5pm join King Kevin in a Workshop to identify What Type of Queen Are You?  Knowing your Queen Type will help you can attract the right type of King! Then between 6-9pm TC Carrier will be doing a Lecture on his book ‘The Secret Science of Black Male & Female Sex‘.

The Ankh Wellbeing Centre will be serving delicious vegan food, which you can purchase in the break.

If you work full time, consider booking the afternoon off work so you can attend both sessions!  Save £5 when you book both, only £25! (instead of £30).  >> Book here <<

Friday 6th Oct 6-8.30pm, Chestnuts Community Centre, N15  (£5 in advance, £7 otd)

In conjunction with Find Your Voice (bro Dougie from SLR radio), this evening is an open Discussion on the topic ‘What Can a King and Queen Achieve Together?‘  We will be exploring how our ancestors built great civilizations, and what we need to do to reclaim our greatness!  Surprisingly, within all the Black ‘conscious’ organizations I encountered in our commUNITY, none of them were doing this! >>  Book your tickets here <<  All our books will be on sale, but you are advised to purchase online so you can be more informed to join in the discussion! (See links to purchase books below)

Saturday 7th Oct 2-9pm @ Maat Centre, Tottenham N17 (£5-£8)

This is a full day event which includes a Youth Session from 2-4pm, Entertainment from 5-6pm, Book Signing & Discussions from 6-9pm, and Networking!

2-4pm Youth Session: Courage to Believe/Black Son Rising (£5 in adv, £7 otd)

We are inviting community organizations who work with our youth (especially those being let down by the system) to bring them along.  Both TC Carrier and Kevin Dorival are youth mentors in the USA, and are keen to have an opportunity to mentor our youth in the UK too!  What strategy should our youth be using to vent their frustration, instead of taking it out on each other? The entry fee is to cover the cost of the venue; if you are a black business or entrepreneur and would like to sponsor (pay for) our youth to attend this event, please contact me or the organisations to pay for them to attend, or just go to the Eventbrite page and pay, and donate them to the organization of your choice, such as Manhood Academy, Black Child Agenda, or Mentor Kings.

6-9pm Book Signings, Discussion & Entertainment! (£5 in advance, £7 otd)

The topic for this evening is ‘When Kings Meet Queens!

What happens when a brother and a sister unite in a high state of consciousness?  How do we achieve this state?  What is blocking our progress as a commUNITY?  How can we heal the damage caused to our DNA through slavery and colonialism?  Come and discuss!

Between 5-6pm there will be entertainment (including poetry by myself, dance from Julius of StepFreeDance, and music), food and drinks will be on sale, and you can also get your books signed!  Are you a King looking for your Queen? This will also be a great networking opportunity to meet other Kings and Queens (or Kings and Queens in the making)  >>  Book your tickets here <<

**There are a few stalls available for £20 each, visit the same link above to reserve yours**

Sunday 8th October 5-7.30pm @ Brixton Library, SW9 (£5 in advance, £7 otd)

Topic: Rebuilding Our Empires

This event is the culmination of the whole tour, and is your last opportunity to meet King Kevin and TC Carrier before they head back to the USA – if you’ve read their books you will surely want to meet them and get your books signed, if you haven’t done already!  We will have an open discussion on ‘How do we begin to rebuild our empires?‘ (our relationships, family and commUNITY).  How do we reclaim our rightful position in society?  What needs to change, for this to happen?  

We will also be discussing how we can carry on the work once the book tour is over, and how YOU can get involved!  There will also be giveaways, prizes, and lots of interactive discussion!

It costs £70 per hour to hire Brixton Library (with a discount!).  I’ve kept the ticket prices for each event as low as possible, just so you can attend at least one, and to make sure that you can still get the books!  This is not a profit-making venture, but something I’ve put together to help us as a commUNITY to heal.

Purchase your books in advance and read them before the tour, so that you can join in the discussions from an informed perspective; they will only have a limited amount of books with them, so purchase your book online, and they will sign it for you at the events!

Review: African American Research Library Book Festival

I just got back from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where I took part in the African American Research Library & Cultural Centre‘s Annual Book Festival, courtesy of King Kevin Dorival!

The building itself was amazing; the equivalent of The Marcus Garvey Library, The Black Cultural Archives, and the Bernie Grant Arts Centre all under one roof! The library also has a state-of-the-art Theatre, and Black History Museum.
On Friday we were taken on a tour of the building by Essy, the Director. We were able to see some of the African artefacts they had accumulated, including some which belonged to the founder of the library, Samuel F. Morrison.
I also got to interview Samuel F. Morrison in the flesh! He is the visionary behind the library, who raised the $60,000,000 needed to build it. It was great to see that they had created a legacy for him while he’s still alive!
Later that evening I was one of the authors who featured in ‘An Evening with the Literary Stars‘, an exclusive evening where we got to pitch our books to the audience for 5 minutes each.
The following day was open to the public; I was on the Romance Panel with two other authors:
We had a lively discussion and afterwards, audience participants purchased their signed copies of our books!  (King Kevin Dorival was also on the panel).

The Kings are Coming!

King Kevin will be coming to London for the Kings & Queens Book Tour taking place on the 1-8th October.  We will be focusing on his newly-released book ‘7 Types of Queens, Kings Desire‘ (I wrote the Foreword).
King Kevin has informed me that  he’ll be on the look-out for his Queen, so ladies, read his book!

I managed to interview King Kevin before I came back to London:

TC Carrier, author of ‘The Secret Science of Black Male and Female Sex‘ is also coming to London to take part in the Kings & Queens Book Tour!
The reason I’ve invited  both King Kevin and TC Carrier to London to take part in the Kings & Queens Book Tour is because both their books compliment my Self-help romance novel ‘Journey of a Sister‘.  All 3 books will really help you on your own journey of Self-discovery!
Tickets will also go on sale shortly, and you’re advised to get yours early – it’s going to be SOLD OUT! (don’t say you weren’t warned!)
The tour will include Book Signing & Discussion Events as well as Workshops; ‘What Type of Queen Are You?‘ ‘What is Spiritual Sex?‘ Come and find out!  Order your books and read them in advance, so you can join in the discussions!

Today is Black Woman Heal Day!

Today is officially Black Woman Heal Day, founded by Lilada Gee in 2015.  The aim is to organise events, write blogs, and create forums where sisters can get information, share stories, and empower each other.

I would have liked to organise an event this year, but I’m attending the Woman to Woman Conference today, so I’ve decided to write a blog instead, with the aim of organizing an event next year…

Why The Black Woman MUST Heal:

The Black Womban is the Original Woman, the ‘Mother of All Nations’.

It has been scientifically proven that the oldest human remains is of a Black Womban.

She carries the original gene: Mitochondria DNA.  Men do not carry this gene, it can only be transferred from mother to child, which is where I believe the word inHERitance comes from! (I’ve covered the topic of MDNA in Year 8 of my Self-help novel ‘Journey of a Sister’)

There is a secret war against the Black Womban; to prevent her from ‘re-membering’ who she is, to degrade her image (and that of her male counterpart) in order to destroy her family, and ultimately her whole commUNITY.

The Black Womban is the core of her community; in order to heal our community, the Black Womban MUST heal – for the sake of the next generation!

The Black Womban, being the Mother of All Nations, is pow-HER-full!  But we have forgotten our power.  Many of us have issues to do with our womb, relating to the foods we eat, the products we put on our skin and hair, and the toxic men we sleep with.  In order to heal, we must return to nature!  In order to heal our relationships, we must begin by healing ourselves, starting with Self Love!

Self Love A3 Poem

Ways we can heal:

  • Get in touch with our True Self, by spending time alone, sitting in the Silence, meditating, praying, taking notes.
  • Read (and implement) Self-help books, audios and videos that help us return to our natural state of being.
  • Get into nature at least twice a week
  • Use natural skin and hair care products (these sink into your bloodstream!)
  • Grow natural! (There’s a section in my novel which will help you innerstand why this is important)
  • Exercise your mind and body daily
  • Eat foods provided by Mother Nature
  • Learn about the power of your yoni and womb (covered in Year 8 of ‘Journey of a Sister’)

In a society which has turned everything upside down, where the truth is now a lie, and a lie is now the truth, it doesn’t take much to realize why the Black Woman and her male counterpart is under such attack.  Yet WE have the power to turn everything the right way around again!  We are POW-HER-FULL!

The source of our power is in our EMOTIONS and our INTUITION.  Yet if we continue operating in our masculine energy instead of our feminine energy, we will never be able to tap into our full pow-HER.  We will never take our rightful position on this planet , next to our Black Man, reigning side by side.

As melanin-rich people, we are naturally spiritual, and naturally sexual.

Religion has played a big part in separating sex from spirituality, but in this time we MUST heal, and put the two back together again.  I have gone into much more detail about this in my novel, preview Year One FREE! (click on link to open)

Rise of the Feminine Energy

After asking God for ‘the Truth!’ in 2007, I exited the church,  and spent 3 years in the black ‘conscious’ community.

My conclusion was that both organizations suppress the Feminine Energy, and until the woman gains her rightful position in both organizations,  attendees of both will never achieve their full potential.

Religion was used to blame the woman for the fall of humanity, which allowed the establishment to become male-dominated, and to make women subservient to men.  It is the male ego that is the cause of most of the problems in the world today!

The masculine and feminine energies are different from each other, yet are meant to compliment each other.  The man and woman should stand side by side, not one ruling over the other.  Women are naturally more intuitive and receptive to spiritual guidance.  Men have the drive and strength to push things forward.  Men must have vision, while womben help to give birth to those visions.  In ancient Kemet (renamed Egypt by the Europeans after they invaded), the Queens reigned alongside their Kings, who relied on the women for counsel before making decisions.  Women held high positions throughout all African society.

rule-side-by-side

When Africa was invaded and colonized, the first thing Europeans did was to destroy the family, which was the core of the commUNITY.  As the woman was the nucleus of the family, they focused on breaking down her psyche, by destroying the image of her male counterpart, and her own image.

So today, our relationships are suffering because our women have lost their status and identity.

In order to restore our relationships, and our commUNITY, the womban must take her rightful place: alongside the man, not behind him, or under him.   Look at what Barack Obama was able to achieve with Michelle alongside him!

My Self-help book ‘How to Get the Ring On Your Finger’ goes much deeper than the title.  It looks at how our past has affected the way we relate to each other today, and how even living in a Western society with Western ideals about relationships, is killing our family structures.

The subject of women looking like women but acting masculine came up time and time again, which even made me practice operating more in my Feminine Energy!  It will help you identify the root cause of your relationship issues so that you can heal, before seeking to attract your soulmate. By healing ourselves individually, we will heal our relationships, and ultimately our whole commUNITY.  You can download it FREE by subscribing, or if you’re an Amazon Prime member, you can borrow it from their lending library FREE!

TOMORROW (9th Feb): Book Signing & Discussion Event & Film Screening of ‘Southside with You’ (the story of Michelle and Barack Obama’s First Date!)

Join me at Harlesden Library from 5-7pm to discuss the topics raised in ‘How to Get the Ring On Your Finger’.  If you’re not able to make the Book Signing, you can meet me at Regent Street Cinema where I’ll be performing my poem ‘R U The One?’ before the film starts!  (my books will also be on sale)
