I have been planning my dream book launch party.
This exciting event is not intended for my upcoming foodoir, Afrikan Eats In The Diaspora, rather it is for my quarter-life memoir, which is in progress as well.
So, I originally wanted this event to be held at the African National Memorial Bookstore, which was subtitled "the House of Common Sense and the Home of Proper Propaganda", but seeing as how that particular establishment is closed to the public, I'll have to do some improvisation.
I had dreams of this event being elevated and transformed into a book launch block party on 125th St. and Seventh Ave. where the African National Memorial Bookstore used to boom with business.
It once housed more than 200,000 texts from a great collection of African writers, which in turn inspired other Afrikan people to write their own powerful stories within America (e.g., Malcolm X).
Although I never had the opportunity to formally meet the Harlem bookseller and civil rights activist, Lewis H. Michaux, who owned this bookstore, I feel thoroughly connected to his overall essence and stand in awe of his wisdom.
It seems right to launch my book there because that would be personally gratifying for me to share this event with the conscious community in a historical neighborhood while collectively paying homage to our great ancestor.
Perhaps loyal customers, supporters, fans, friends and family of Lewis H. Michaux would also attend, which would be fitting, fun, and informative for everyone.
I think it would be a smashing success and a culturally competent experience for all.
I dreamed of the event being held on the weekend, preferably a Saturday, so that more families and community members could gather together and have a unifying experience.
I had another dream that ALL of my family was in attendance and everyone was joyous.
Also, I dreamt that my sales weren't through the roof! My signing line circled all the way around the corner. Yay!
In reality, I've yet to work out all the particulars or finish writing the memoir; nevertheless, my dreams certainly fuel me to keep striving.
In the meantime, feel free to check out some other event planning ideas that I dreamt of below; I think I would call my event, The Unity Launch: From the Past to the Future Literarily...
Sounds like an epic good time, right?
I truly miss 90s TV shows. I could watch them all day with a few bowls of cereal.
The photo gallery below displays some of my favorites. Please peruse it at your leisure for some nostalgia.
Also, clicking each photo should direct you to the intro credits for that TV show.

I put all of my iTunes music on shuffle to clean house today. I just wanted to share with you the first 10 songs that played for me. Please enjoy!

I am super amped about the upcoming season of The Walking Dead.
I feel as though I've been having major TV withdrawals over the summer, so I can't wait to reunite with the #TWD family.
Check out the show's new trailer below, which is mighty epic.
King Ezekiel & Negan... only one slang word could possibly define this... YASSS!!!
