Aretha Franklin: A Divine Gift for us and through us to all humanity

This is an official statement from the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan on the passing of legendary singer and activist Aretha Franklin, who departed this life on August 16, 2018 at her home in Detroit.

It is with great pain and sorrow that we reflect on and mourn the loss of this magnificent woman of extreme value. Her value is not only the beautiful gift of her voice, but also the sweetness of her soul, and the deep sensitivity that was her gift, to feel the hurt and pain throughout the world.

Black-Owned Handbag Company Kicks Off National Black College Tour to Promote Their HBCU themed Custom Clutch Purses to Female Students and Alumni

Husband and wife team, Quinn Conyers and Isa Abdul-Raheem, are going on a 6-city HBCU tour to promote their unique handbags to female students and alumni.

Black Sorority members and graduates of HBCUs will soon have a sophisticated alternative to showcase their college spirit after custom clutch company, Purse Paparazzi, announced a plan to launch a custom HBCU collection.

Purse Paparazzi offers an assortment of unique, stylish and edgy clutches for every occasion. But the company is mostly known for its creative purses catering to the historical Divine Nine Sororities including Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, Zeta Phi Beta and Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Incorporated. As licensed vendors for each organization, the company offers their unique custom clutches on their website and at various events and conferences hosted by each sorority.

The new HBCU line will capture the essence and pride of women who attend or graduated from Historically Black Colleges or Universities. Purse Paparazzi is already licensed with Bowie State University and plans are afoot to add an additional 10 HBCU’s to the custom clutch collection.

Purse Paparazzi is owned by husband and wife team, Quinn Conyers and Isa Abdul-Raheem. Quinn is a proud Howard University graduate and Isa is a proud Eagle alumni from Coppin State University in Baltimore MD.

Questioned about the motivation for introducing the new collection, Conyers explained: “Our motivation for the new HBCU line comes from the pride and esteem many Blacks/Africans have regarding their HBCU. The HBCU clutch collection is our way of showing our school pride and expanding our unique brand.”

The HBCU collection will be launched during a Homecoming tour in Fall 2017. For further information or to submit a custom order, visit www.PursePaparazzi.com.

The Most Racist Statue in America Is in … Pittsburgh, and It’s the Most Ridiculous Magical Negro You’ll Ever See 

There are times, like when watching footage of what happened in Charlottesville, Va., that racism bombards the senses like a virus, leaving your skin sore, your soul hardened and your spirit fatigued; a disillusioning, full-body wizening that disrupts, destroys and (occasionally) ends lives.
