The Black Enterprise Celebration of Women of Power, 2019

 

I am standing between my tall beautiful niece, Ti Walker, and my shorter beautiful publicist Yona Deshommes at the recent Women of Power Legacy Gathering in Las Vegas.

I spent all day last Saturday from ten o’clock in the morning to after ten o’clock at night (with a break for lunch, stretches, walks and a nap in my car) listening to a presentation by David Icke who is traveling the planet with his Phantom Self, World Wake Up Tour.

Never Give Up  Never give up No matter what is going on
 Develop the heart
 Too much energy in your country

Stephane Hessel, Presente

Stéphane Hessel, one of the great old men of the world still standing, inspired all of us who participated in the Russell Tribunal on Palestine over the last several years.  He died peacefully in his sleep last night at the age of 95.  That he never abandoned his principles –  from  participation in the French Resistance, through his… Continue reading
