May 5 2019 Town Hall California Califia NOW 1 collage.jpg

I had the honor of serving with the mothers of California NOW and Califia NOW in San Diego and Los Angeles. It was a joyous occasion for women to speak THE empowering truth.  Amongst Oprah’s Spiritual advisor, Marianne Williamson, I felt the California spirit all over again! It is such a joy to experience California love! One day soon they will love California. Special thanks to a few Queen Calafías: Cheryl Branch, Califia NOW Founder, Adria Fox, California NOW, SD, Michelle Price, California NOW President, SD, Kolieka Seigle, Califonria NOW President, Sacramento. For all the wonderous women and mothers out there, this one’s for you…


A mother courageously cares when others don’t dare.

A mother energetically teaches where others can’t reach.

A mother’s beautiful love is endless and true.

A mother’s womb cradles humanity for the enjoyment of me and you.

CALIFORNIA IS ME thanks Queen Calafia’s like you!


Reign your days ahead and command the respect you so royally deserve. 

May 5 2019 Town Hall California Califia NOW 2.png

So many people in the audience at the Califia NOW Town Hall were impressed, shocked, and overjoyed to receive their regal, melanated Californian history. 

A few notable quotes are below after I gave my speech (see below part 1) and inquired to Dr. Grant what her professional opinion was concerning the educational suppression of California’s meaning.

 “That doesn’t surprise me.  And it probably should not surprise anyone in terms of the vampirism of the Black community. If you go back fairly recently to the Renaissance, you know, everything got stolen and suppressed…[B]ut here’s what’s wonderful about it, is that the truth is coming to light.  See there’s a time for truth.  And this is the time for it.  So, thank you for exposing it.”

-          Dr. Parthenia Grant, Author and Social psychologist


“The African American community is always paving the way for social justice movements.”

-          Queen Monique Francisco from Sacramento, California
