footage has been altered to protect the innocent.... keep your eyes and ears peeled!
This week's post has a guest in honor of Black History!
Introducing my comrade 'Jester' with a quote from Du Bois's 'Dusk to Dawn':
"We are the supermen who sit idly by and laugh and look at civilization. We, who frankly want the bodies of our mates and conjure no blush to our bronze
cheeks when we own it. We, who exalt the Lynched above the Lyncher, and the Worker above the Owner, and the Crucified above Imperial Rome."
The Shank's pick for this week's post was from Nuny: #1 "The first place where you truly felt that art was your passion/gift." Answer: "My Home: The Bronx".
Next to Miss 17.
Below is The Shank's first time tagging ... you pick the next time! As a thank you gift to all my viewers I give you the opportunity to suggest locations you
would like to see BLACKGOLD in NYC. I will announce all the suggestions and pick one... so keep a look out! Submissions accepted until Friday the 17 of
February - midnight! Post suggestions in comments... stay sharp and brave!
In homage to The Shank's birth place The BRONX... I sing "Dear Me"....please stay tuned for your chance to choose where BLACKGOLD will be posted next!
