Black History Month Celebration Everyday!

Black History Month Celebration Everyday!

As you know, February is Black History Month but for me it's 24/7.  In these times of blatant racial hatred and social injustice, more then ever we need to teach our youth and others about our great historical legacy and the importance of the accomplishments and achievements of our Ancestors via Black History Month Celebrations and beyond.   You too can make a difference and take this opportunity to "teach" by purchasing books for your family, children and school.  Schedule your book fair today (any time of year) and let's educate!  For more information click here.

KIDS = KEMETIC IDENTIFIED DIVINE SPIRITS (A New Definition)

KIDS = KEMETIC IDENTIFIED DIVINE SPIRITS (A New Definition)

As a Conscious Business Parent Educator Activist Bookseller I have decided that it is ok to use the word KIDS in the right context, when promoting to or about our Children. So therefore, the new meaning of the acronym for KIDS is Kemetic Identified Divine Spirits.  (Come on we know that they are not baby goats, which was the original definition of the word.) But times have changed and we must recognize that our Children respond to this word in advertising and in Social Media, and we can use it to reach them on a conscious level.  From here on, the...
