"I NEED HELP." Three words that have been very hard for me to say most of my life, being a giver who has difficulty with asking for help. OUCH! Not opening oneself up to receiving is a huge energetic block; it can drain you. It costs money to write, edit, and curate a charming book, a book that will charm all your senses into the sweetest surrender. Every person that has worked on this book project also had/has to get paid. I’ve been fronting all those costs alone with my savings-which I am grateful for. Sooooo if you’ve been inspired, encouraged, loved on, or supported in any way by my words, pictures, or passion, please consider sending me a donation/offering. NOOOO donation is too small—from $1.00 to 1 Million :). Please go to my tumblr, look the the left, and click the paypal donation button. SWEET THANK YOUS! I really appreciate it. I am behind the scenes, making love and creating magic. High regards! Please support your artists, if not me, then someone else, for sure! ‘
Cheers, India Ame’ye, Modern Woman, Indigenous Spirit <3

So by now, I’m sure all, if not most of you have heard of the senseless murder of Brittney Cosby & her girlfriend Crystal Jackson down in Texas.

Brittney was a friend of one of my frat bruhs, literally one degree of separation between us.

Currently Brittney’s family is having trouble paying for funeral costs. I’m asking all of you to contribute to get gofund me page to help lessen the costs. Literally every dollar helps. Thanks!

"On New Year’s Eve of 2009, Oakland native Renina Jarmon was alone in a new city, smarting from a breakup and feeling a little lost and definitely not in the mood to party. But she slithered into her fancy silver leggings, thus prompting a friend to ask her if she came from the future. What started as an innocuous comment became a symbolic statement became the internationally used Twitter hashtag #blackgirlsarefromthefuture, and now, a collection of essays about race, food, feminism, sexuality, storytelling, pop culture, power, and, yes, leggings. Join Jarmon as she reads along with Juliana “Jewels” Smith, author of (H)afrocentric, at Betti Ono Gallery (1427 Broadway, Oakland) this weekend; BYO metallic legwear."
