It gives me great pleasure to bring to your attention an event that I feel will be a great success with God's help, it is an event entitled "The Lost Ones" coming to Shreveport, LA on August 28th, 2010.
The event is the brainchild of a good friend of mine that I met on Facebook, Joanna "Louisiana Storyteller" Ballard, a great poetess, artist and storyteller, whom I met through another good friend on Facebook, Lady Flava, a very staunch supporter in Indie Arts and an all around cheerleader for the arts.
Joanna is a very enthusiastic person and very involved with the issue of homelessness, who in seeing my art and reading the few poems I have written believed that my work falls right in line with her vision as well. What's more monumental is the fact that this collaboration is very diverse in just the two of us, Joanna, being a White, Christian based, woman and I being an African American Male who is Muslim, promises to bring many different aspects to the table in this event, and in talking with her about the issues of the homeless people and how visual art among other art forms can contribute to awakening the mind, body and spirit to combat the seriousness of homelessness and poverty seemed to fall right in line with some of my ideas in my personal contribution entitled LIFESTYLES OF THE IGNORED.
The event will include poetry, music and visual art exhibitions ranging from her personal collections of photography to paintings by YOURS TRULY! That's right, after almost four years of resurrecting my passion and adding purpose to my art, God(Allah) has given my the opportunity to once again use my expression and spread the message, hoping that it will enlighten, educate and spur action. This is only the beginning, we are still in the process of putting everything together, but this could be the beginning of something very special, so special we may be looking into a similar venue in my hometown of Dallas, Tx as well. I will bring more details as they come, but in the meantime, I thank you for your constant support and backing.
All Praise Is To Allah(GOD)Alone...
Take care, Love You All......Quwwa
P.S.....DON'T CALL IT A COMEBACK!!!! HA HAAAAAA!!!! TOLD YOU IT'S YO' LOSS SUCKAAAAAAAHS!
