As brothers and sisters fail to replace torn underwear and socks, as they till the streets everday to work and back because of this despicable economic meltdown, what are we, as a politically suppressed people, doing about it?

Dear Chris,

Until we individuals become whole in ourselves, ther's point to fight. We are just shadows. We have not yet discovered our being. And s that we as artist come in. Our role must be to always disturb the status quo, and give people a sense of hope. As an artist, i always try to avoid the portrayal of the despicable. I know that its in vogue in Africa literature to do that but I have made a conscious decision to write in a fashion that lingers on the poitive qualities of our humanity. I dont mean that we gloss over our faults. In fact, that is our great curse today. No one speaks the truth. Not even the church. Everyone is hiding under the covers. I strongly feel we need a recovery of body, mind and spirit.

Thank you for bringing up the subject Chris,
