    TaharQa Aleem- Ghetto Fighters in Harlem World

    in Books

    TaharQa Aleem is our special guest on the Jimi Hendrix Black Legacy Series.  He will be talking about his new book called : Ghetto Fighters in Harlem World.  It was co-authored with his twin brother Tunde Ra Aleem, who made his transition in late summer of 2014.  TaharQa continues to carry on the Aleem legacy as he promotes a memoir that the Aleems collectively have pour so much heart, soul and emotion into.  This book takes its readers on a whirlwind of a journey through the concrete jungles of the Harlem underworld, as well as a few surprise stops here and there.  Although this first interview will mainly focus on the Ghetto Fighters' interactions with Jimi Hendrix, the book offers so much more, as the Aleems made their way through house, hip-hop, and even some New Kids on the Block!!!  You don't want to miss this first interview as we go deep into their friendship and mentorship with Jimi Hendrix.

    Here is the link to check out and purchase the book: Ghetto Fighters in Harlem World:http://www.amazon.com/Ghetto-Fighters-Harlem-World-Tunde/dp/150286438X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1418618185&sr=8-1&keywords=ghetto+fighters+in+harlem+world&pebp=1418618188576

    INTO THE GO-SLOW is a novel about sisters, the legacy of the Black Power Movement, and the troubled bond between African Americans and Africans.

Against a backdrop of Nigeria’s infamous go-slow—traffic as wild and surprising as a Fela lyric—Angie begins to unravel the mysteries of the past, and opens herself up to love and life after Ella.

    Voices of South Africa with Johann

    in Politics Conservative

    I am a South African born white male and was born in the middle sixties. My family has been in South Africa since the middle 17th century. My forefathers from my dad’s side came to South Africa from Germany and later married a girl from the Netherlands over here. My history goes back to a Germany back to the 12th century in a town called Griebenow in North East Germany. I grew up in a mostly Afrikaans environment and I have 3 brothers and 1 sister.


    I have my own small one man business specialising in the design, manufacture and installation of kitchen & bathroom cabinetry. I am a keen photographer, philosopher, human rights activist and I play Squash (similar to Racket ball in the USA) at least three times a week. I played rugby, participated in Amateur wrestling and Mixed martial arts. Nowadays I stick to self protection art like Krav Maga and keep fit by doing a lot of jogging, swimming and spending time outdoors. Now, that is when I am not online trying to save the world…..


    I have studied Sales Marketing  management and I am also studying part time towards obtaining my International accreditation as an Installation Electrician at a local technical college. I finished High school at the age of 18 and I had to do National service in the South African Military Services (SADF) as a White male after High school as it was the law in South Africa at the time (Conscription compulsory military service). I opted to sign up for permanent service in the South African Navy for almost 5 years.


     


    South Africa was involved in the Angolan Bush War during that time and we took part in many operations in and outside our borders. I left the Navy and went on to work and study part time in the Sales and Marketing field for several years. I later became involved in the Insurance industry and became involved with insurance brokering and later worked as Sales and Marketing Director in a privately owned company.
