Greetings Afro Madu family! We proudly present a new addition to our social media handles, Madu Music! Madu Music is a way for us to share classic tunes and life changing lyrics of the past/present with you all. We also aim to use this platform as a way for you all to share some of your favorites with us. With Madu Music, we want to shine the spotlight on those songs/artists who have a great impact on our community. Those songs/artists that invoke social change, aiming to evolve Black minds and bring awareness to issues of importance. Are you ready to learn the music of your people? Are you ready to breakdown lyrics for deeper meaning, social relevance, and context you may have missed upon initial listening? Madu Music is yet another tool for the evolution of our collective minds. Have a specific song that you’d like spotlighted? Share with us via twitter using the hashtag #MaduMusic or shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Turn the music up, ready the drum beats, and let the learning commence!
June 1st kicks off our second go around with our Summer Book Club! This year we are featuring a GREAT line-up of excellent books that creates great conversation and allows our AfroMadu community to build upon. Not only are we discussing great texts, but we are giving away cool stuff to make our summer reading more interesting and exciting!
Our first book will be Toni Morrison’s classic, Beloved. Using the hashtag, #BookClubMadu we will use twitter and the site to discuss the key themes and overarching topics of the text. Follow us on twitter to receive great insights from our weekly rants on the books. Then, check our Book tab for the synopsis of the weekly rants. Interested in joining the book club? email us at email@example.com to subscribe. There, we will send you updates and giveaways to continue with the summer club. Get into the habit of reading this summer and join us on this great journey through our summer books!
AfroMadu is very excited in introducing our newest segment on the site, BlackHealth365! Spring into new knowledge and habits with this VERY useful tab that produces information on becoming a better you!
With this movement we aim to help you live holistically, as you were born to, by giving you the tools and information needed to help you better align with nature once again. We’re excited to bring you recipes, the benefits & uses of honing a whole foods based diet, a history of health across the globe, and much more! Black Health 365 was birthed in the spirit of and pays homage to the yoruba Orishas Ozain, the god of all plants & herbs, and Oko, the god of agriculture & produce. Both here to further guide our Black health revolution through me.
As people of the diaspora, our cultures reflect an instinct to nurture and grow with the Earth. We are inherently natural and it is imperative to our bodies, minds, and spirits that we embody that knowing. The sun doesn’t delight the brown hues of our blessed melanin for nothing! You’re special and we want your physical health and soulful lifestyles to reflect just that. Black Health 365 is here to remind you that you are worth living well. Like Queen Afua, the AfroMadu family believes wholly in “liberation through purification,” of the body, mind, and spirit. We’re eager to partake in this journey with you, helping you grow and bring forth your best self!
Since the month of March celebrates Women and their achievements, AfroMadu will be celebrating Black Women and writing. Because we stress the importance of reading and self-empowerment through social issues and the world around us, Black women and their writing play an important role in the plight of our own truth telling. Throughout the month of March, authors and their writings will be featured in our Book Club tab. Get ready to read the great works of Black women! Happy March!
A couple weeks ago, AfroMadu had the opportunity to interview an upcoming artist that resides in Philly. Although AfroMadu is not a music-based blog, Udini LaVoz was very special because his music and talent was BEYOND revolutionary. NOT only did Udini LaVoz grow up in Panama, but his musical talent includes spitting 16′s in both English and Spanish! We won’t give too much of the interview away, but listen to one of AfroMadu’s new favorite artist, Udini LaVoz. Don’t forget to tell us what you think!
