SORT BY Relevancy

Living in the projects most of all my childhood life, made me appreciate life even more today. I was raised in Newark, NJ in three different projects, up to the age of seventeen. I would love to take you on my journey, from a child living in the projects to the woman that I have become. Here’s my story, reminiscing and growing up in the projects.

20 floors and concrete walls, Manhattanville Projects is the place that I called my home for several years. Living in the projects was fun, challenging and definitely a learning experience. To the outside world we lived in the ghetto, the slums the hood, but I called it my home. Take a look into my life growing up as a young girl from the project into a woman, mother, wife and author that is a product of the projects I grew up in. The projects made me who I am today.

There is a power for good in the universe available to anyone and you can use this power for good in your life. ~Ernest Holmes
We have within us a power that is greater than anything that we shall ever contact in the outer, a power that can overcome every obstacle in our life and set us safe, satisfied and at peace, healed and prosperous, in a new light, and in a new life.... Man/[woman] is surrounded by a great universal thought power which returns to him/[her] always just as [she]/he thinks. So plastic, so receptive is this Mind, that it takes the slightest impression and molds it into conditions. . . ~Ernest Holmes, Creative Mind

Bembé: The Rhythm of the Saints
A bembé is a party for the orishas. During a bembé the orishas are praised, saluted and entreated
to join the party through `mounting' one of the priests or priestesses in attendance. This is done
through a confluence of the song, rhythm, and movement, all calling to the orisha in such a way
that the orisha will recognise themselves in the lyrics, rhythms and dances as they have been
performed for them for perhaps thousands of years.
The rhythms play an important part of the equation and the drummers practice assiduously for years
to be able to play the intricate rhythms correctly. This is important since the drums are actually
speaking to the orishas as the Yoruba language is a tonal one and the drums are tuned in such a way
as to play the tones of Yoruba speech. For this reason some rhythms are never played unless it is
in religious context as it would offend the orisha. These rhythms are actually prayers to the
deities with each orisha having its own rhythms associated with them.
Dance also becomes prayer in the religious context of a bembé. The movements of the dances are the
same motions associated with the orishas for thousands of years. As with the rhythms played on the
drums, each orisha has its own dances with Yemayá's dance emulating the motion of the waves, Ogún's
chopping with his machete, Oshún's portraying her primping in front of her hand held mirror, etc.
