Queen Mother Imakhu





(Tune in to www.blogtalkradio.com/imakhu, 11/17/10 at 10 -11pm EST)

Have you seen Tyler Perry's film, "For Colored Girls"? Imakhu did, and has plenty to say about it, as well as her guests, author Abuna Hetep Ra, wellness coach Angelique Saunders, and model Bro. Asan Fossett. Based on the Ntozake Shange's stage play, "For Colored Girls Who Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf," Bro. Perry's latest work is a contemporary, controversial homage to the original, renown choreopoem. The topics of abuse, incest, rape, abortion, down-low Brothas, Black Business "B"-words, religious fanatacism, psychotic veterans, and promiscuity have sparked Black community conversations about whether this type of film airing our dirty laundry is helping or hurting us. What do you think? Join the conversation. Also, learn more about how to recognize abuse in Imakhu's ebook, THE COWRIE BLESSINGS BOOK: NU AFRAKAN WORDS OF WISDOM. www.imakhu.com/Books.html To learn even more, listen to last week's archived show, "Recognizing Abusive Behavior." If you are or have been in an abusive relationship and need support, join AKERU Nu Afrakan Ministries' "Overcoming Abuse" Phone Support Group. www.akeruministries.com/support_group.html
