On May 26th My Mother and Brother hosted a beautiful birthday party for me in grand style. With the help of my daughter Selah, uncle Michael Hill, cousin Hakim Abdus-Sabur, friends Miriam Farrakhan and AJ Calloway, they were able to contact and invite many of my childhood friends and relatives, some of whom, I hadn’t seen for years. Since I’m usually the one throwing the party or hosting the event, I can’t begin to tell you what a joy it was to pile into this space ‘all old-school-like’ surrounded by family and friends both past and present. In some of these photos (probably most) I’m a hot and sweaty, sentimental mess, but elated! I was reminded of how rich and diverse the community of my youth was and continues to be. A special thank you to my Mother and Brother for putting this wonderful event together and all those who helped and of course, attended. Love you!!!
