Salim Abdul-Khaliq was born Ron Charles in Chicago, Illinois in 1954. He was born with a constant desire to read, write and study.
In 1974, while in the army, he was positively influenced by a muslim brother named John Sanders, now known as Yahya Abdul Ali-Karriem. He became a mentor to Ron. This mentoring led Ron to do further research and investigation into the faith of Islam and into Malcolm X.
As a young black man Islam gave Ron a profound understanding of God, self knowledge, and African American history. This led to his conversion to Islam in 1974 and later a name change.
The name change is significant and symbolic of a change of consciousness. He is now Salim Abdul-Khaliq. This name means Peaceful Servant of the Creator. In addition, he also gave his daughters Islamic names.
God has enabled Salim Abdul-Khaliq to devote himself full time to his teachings and community activism. He has now opened a bookstore in Chicago, Illinois. Salim opened the bookstore to impress upon African-American people the importance of learning about their great heritage through reading.

The images of photographer Roberto Rabanne have captured the energy, complexity and beauty in music, fashion and art for more than four decades. I have a simple philosophy about photography, it’s that the image has to be powerful” explains Rabanne. “And I find this happens when you capture the subject engaging in the non-defensive, unguarded essence that is truly ‘them. One day at a sound check he decided he had nothing to lose and asked Jimi Hendrix if he could take his picture with his Yashica twin lens reflex. “Sure, man,” the flamboyant guitarist said, and Rabanne began snapping away. “I shot half a roll of film, rushed back to my little darkroom and processed it, and ran back to the Fillmore with the proof sheets,” explains Rabanne. “Hendrix said, ‘Wow, man, I like these,’ and stuck a $100 bill in my hand. He was my first ‘client’ and that was the beginning of my career as a professional photographer.Rabanne’s photos were first published in magazines like Rolling Stone, Crawdaddy, Cream and the East Village Other. They ran the gamut of the great bands – from the Grateful Dead and Quicksilver to Big Brother and the Holding Company, Cream, Dylan, Jefferson Airplane, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles and more. Early on, Rabanne befriended Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead. The legendary musician gave him priority access and allowed the photographer to do several studies of him and the band.Later, Rabanne’s interests expanded to include jazz and reggae. Shooting for Down Beat, Jazz Express, Goldmine, NME and numerous recording companies, his work now included the likes of Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Charles Mingus, Carmen McRae, Betty Carter, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Bob Marley and scores of others as he became the official photographer of the Monterey Jazz Festival.

This is a black arts and culture site. We will be exploring the African Diaspora via the writing, performance, both musical and theatrical (film and stage), as well as the visual arts of Africans in the Diaspora and those influenced by these aesthetic forms of expression. I am interested in the political and social ramifications of art on society, specifically movements supported by these artists and their forebearers. It is my claim that the artists are the true revolutionaries, their work honest and filled with raw unedited passion. They are our true heroes. Ashay!
