    Chronicles of the Revolutionary Nerd 7

    in Pop Culture

    Kenjji grew up in Detroit’s Rosedale Park neighborhood, went to Catholic school for eight years, and later attended University of Detroit Mercy and Western Michigan University, where he studied art.

    Kenjji dropped his surname because of its connection to slavery and its consequent “unpretty history.”

    He was first inspired to create comics after reading Brotherman, one of the first independent comic books featuring a Black superhero, which was published in the late ’80s and early ’90s.

    “I decided it was time to reinstate books like Brotherman, which I found so influential and appealing, and the first thing I had to do was create a character that was just as cool as Brotherman,” he explains.

    “I wanted to do a character with cornrows — that was the look. Around the time I was working this out, D’Angelo [noted for his cornrows] came out with his album Voodoo, which gave me the inspiration to start researching Voodoo as a background for this character.”

    Hence the birth of his protagonist, who was named after a “super-suave friend” by the name of Jovan who lived on Carrington Street.

    Kenjji is a strickler for detail, and wanted his book to paint an authentic picture of Voodoo. He extensively researched the history of the misunderstood practice, devouring books and studying under a Voodoo priestess who runs an informational Web site about the practice and history of Voodoo.

    Chronicles of the Revolutionary Nerd 4

    in Pop Culture

    A Conversation/ Interview with Yorli Huff, the Creator of Engendered Strentghs SuperHero Huff.... One of the few African-American undercover agents in the task force, Huff excelled at her work, but her rise to the top brought with it racism and discrimination. In 1997, after trying unsuccessfully to deal with that discrimination on her own, Huff made history when she filed a lawsuit against the Cook County Sheriff’s Police Department, a battle which took her eleven years to win. A powerful international motivational speaker that is an entrepreneur at heart, Huff is the owner of Just For You Balloons, a balloon decorating company which she established in 1992, which she established in 2008. Also in 2008, Yorli Huff became the Founder, President, and CEO of Engendering Strength, Inc., a company devoted to inspiring and empowering women.  Yorli Huff’s first book, The Veil of Victory, an account of her life from childhood to her victory over the Cook County Sheriff’s Police Department, was published in October 2010. She is currently at work on her second book, Testimony Time; a Superhero Huff comic book; a feature film based on The Veil of Victory; t-shirt lines; and a National motivational speaker.  Yorli Huff has been featured on Allison Payne’s People to People segment, Monique Caradine show, Perspectives, the Cliff Kelly talk radio show on WVON, Lamont Brown Speaks and South Africa’s SABC radio. Ms. Huff has just returned from South Africa on a powerful speaking tour to empower, encourage and enlighten the people on matters of discrimination and abuse. She is also the recipient of the “Remarkable Women” award from America’s Time Out for Youth, Inc. She was honored as a “2011 Women on Top of Her Game” by American’s Time Out for Youth, Inc.
