The Artistry OF Erykah Badu

I just couldn’t help but pay a little homage…

In recent times, has there been another artist (i.e. musician, painter, sculptor, poet…) that has been drawn, written about, painted, or “filtered” more than Erykah Badu?  If there has please let this brotha know.  Either way, her Motherland features (lips, hips, and other parts), and her eccentric, eclectic, bold, refuse to be put in a box style have been the source of inspiration for many.  Impressive art people!  (Crediting each piece was quite impossible because most were re-posts.  However, several of these images were linked back to Deviant Art).

“5 Black Students Named Rhodes Scholars”

(L-R: Tayo Sanders, Rachel Harmon, Ridwan Hassen, Sarah Yerima and Robert Fisher)

I am very proud of our young scholars and pray that one day we can provide them with these types of opportunities without having to receive awards named after the murderous devil called Cecil Rhodes.   Hopefully these brilliant young warriors will take the money, opportunities and prestige to flip this and one day start their own system of honoring other scholars of Afrikan descent.  So, as we absolutely salute our youth for their academic achievements, let us not forget.
