Dr.Rev Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial



Me and Grandbaby Jai 2013
Today is the Day of Service for America. In Honor of Dr. Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. My contribution was to help donate funds for the Memorial and teach my Descendant's about his Life, Work, and Deeds. I had almost forgot these. They were on another camera after my cellphone lost it's power. It was such a learning lesson that day. So many questions from Jai. 

I always want to Honor his Life in any capacity big or small. I "Lived" one day before he was Assassinated. We will always be tied together in that moment. He was always my school project.

I will gladly pass this onto the rest of the babies in my family or any child who wants to know. 

"Who this man was".....

Thank You So Much Dr. King for helping us set "OURSELVES" FREE with your Guidance. Your Legacy will live on in so many hearts. As long as I live, I will Honor that. 

It's the least I can do for all that you have done for so many. I hope you are resting now. We miss you. One day we'll be together.

Happy Birthday!
Love, True Eddie Tyler Taylor and Puddin' aka Jai

BlogFest2014! African American Bloggers ~ Family History Revealed

  Today is the DAY!  AAGSAR BlogFest 2014  has ARRIVED!

 

 Our Ancestors are SPEAKING! It's been a long tedious 4 months. Through our "Principal" Luckie Daniels she created AAGSAR after a Grievous and Sorrowful time when she lost her Mother she went offline for a bit. 

"I'm so Glad" she came back!  We are Celebrating and Finally through her have found Our Voice and made a HOME for Our ANCESTOR's to bear their TRUTH. 

I have been in many  Facebook Groups. Done many Internet Searches for my Genealogy and Family History.  I was sort of out in the Wild trying to find my place and didn't quite know what to do with my Work, only that I wanted other researchers to see it. I couldn't put two and two together. 

NEVER have I seen someone place the VALUE and MEANING on what our Work was suppose to do?  The Mentorship she has provided to us can't be matched. She has helped us grow into our Own. Even with myself she made me Think about what I Speak into the World and has helped me Grow in Confidence that I do know what I'm doing. 
She has also been our Cheerleader and Advocating for Years for our Voices to be at the Table.
 She has had more than her share of Heaping and Hauling, with us Grown Folks with our Hard Heads and Stubbornness.   Teaching us how TECHNOLOGY and Blogging can be integrated to put our Research out there and take us to the next level.

AAGSAR found ME! We have done 1:1 training. Been taught the meaning of our Work is IMPORTANT, we Do have a VOICE! Other's want to hear and read our Stories.  There are so many African American Family Histories. We finally found a PLACE where we can Commune together and get our Ancestors ONLINE and Out into the Community. We know what it means to be the Keeper of Records. What a HONOR it is to be the GRIOT, chosen to tell our Ancestors stories.

                     BlogFest2014 and AAGSAR have gotten us to the TABLE.
 Coming to the Table


This is a 1st! I'm so HUMBLED to be a part of so many new African American Bloggers! We are not in the shadows anymore. I look forward to hearing more of their stories. For up and coming New Bloggers who are hesitant?  Take the Leap of Faith and begin sharing your stories in Blogging!  You can do IT!   No more should we accept "Hoarding" our Family Histories. Keeping them in our Minds and Binders. 

Let Them Speak! Let your Ancestors Stories be Told! 



I'm so PROUD and PLEASED with Principal Daniels on your Leap Of Faith. For so many of us we had doubts and fears. 

Now we know what the TRUE meaning of our Work on behalf of Our Ancestors truly means.

 Do not DESPISE your PAST. Keep writing all the way from  your PHd Dr. to Preacher to Prisoner. Fully embrace all your family stories, let their Lives show their MEANING in Blogging.

This is a LIST of new African American Family Historian Bloggers being presented for BLOGFEST 2014! you can also follow US on Twitter @AAGSARFaceBook .

LINK FOR NEW BLOGGERS! :  



Enjoy!  Spread the Word. If you have family connections in anyway,  CONTACT and COMMUNE with them. Keep everyone Encouraged, do a Random Act of Kindness and SHARE INFO. 

We have already LOST so Much. Let's try to work through the HURT, PAIN and SHAME and work together. It only makes the Genealogy Community STRONGER! We will only come out on the other side Truthfully by Honoring Our Ancestors Stories. All of it.....

They say to OPEN a WINDOW after a Loved ones Passing, so their Soul Can Fly. I'll open a Window tonight in Honor of OUR Ancestors...... Let their Spirits SOAR on this Day of our BlogFest2014!
