His latest book, "Colorblind: The Rise of Post-Racial Politics from Racial Equity," is the topic of our discussion this morning; Akiba Timoya aka Akiba Onada-Sikwoia is African, Blackfoot, Choctaw, Cherokee and Irish. She is Two-Spirited and has been participating in Native American Ceremony for the past 24 years. She is also a member of the Lucumi community and a child of the Orisha. She and DON 'LITTLE CLOUD' DAVENPORT "I am one of the founders of the Black Native American Association in Oakland, California. I am a Seminole with Creek/Chickasaw, Muskogee and African (Nubian/Sudan) Ancestry and of the Bird Clan. I was born in Jackson, Michigan which was on one of the routes of the Underground Railroad where slaves fled to Canada." They will speak about the first annual Black Native American Pow Wow at CSUH this month, Sept. 17-19. Visit www.bnaa.org for the details. The pre-Pow Wow panel is 6:30-8:30 9/17. The procession starts at 1 PM both Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 18-19. Dan Hoyle, "The Real Americans" is our next guest. "The Real Americans," Hoyle's solo performance has been extended through Nov. 6 at The Marsh Theatre Wednesdays-Saturdays, in San Francisco. Visit www.themmarsh.org We close with artist, Somi, who will be at Cafe de Nord in San Francisco, Sept. 16, and at the Monterey Jazz Festival, Sept. 18, then on to Holland. Somi didn't make it, because she is scheduled for next week, 9/10 at 8:30 AM, so tune in then--Mars is in Retrograde. Yes, blame it on the planet that already speeding, I skipped an entire seven days--wow! Meklit Hadero, Somi's friend came to the rescue with a cut from her latest release I like a lot: "Soleil Soleil."
