The Norman Lewis Exhibit at Broad & Cherry Street in Philadelphia {Free on Sundays till Sunday -- April 3rd, 2016.

Norman Lewis Exhibit at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts.

Today {Three weeks ago} & for the third time – I visited the Norman Lewis exhibit at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. Mr. Lewis {a Black abstract artist born in --- & who passed in---} brings protest art to life in the extraordinary artistic event that runs through April 3rd, 2016. Some of the Blue dominated pieces stuck out most in my mind, including, ``Seachange’’ and ``Part Vision.’’ Lewis never reached the fame & fortune levels of a DeKooning, Picasso or a Campbell’s’ soup & Maryland Monroe {Andy Warhol}, but the artist, seen on video in the exhibition put it best Himself -- ``The fact that they [The Artists] get a lot of money for a painting is not any indication of quality,’’  {n} I feel some strange, cohesive, Real & pressing connection to Mr. Lewis& His work which has brought me back to the Academy a third time. {I was fortunate enough to be invited to WURD’s Holiday Party which had the works of Mr. Lewis as a back drop for festive undertakings at Christmas time last December}. A young Black father who came to the exhibit with His two young Sons, was one thing I saw that – aside from the Paintings – warmed my heart& soul & made me feel redeemed, hopeful, & rewarded for helping to get the word out to my hundreds of readers, mostly in the Philadelphia area. Log onto http://NormanLewis.Com to see some of the works at home or on your computer.  The most stunning piece of art in my View is lady in a Yellow hat, which is like a Black Mona Lisa, except you don’t get to see the women’s face. The painting also makes me think of Andrew Wyeth's ``Christina's World'' (1948) in that you cannot see the face of the subject in this famous painting either. By so doing, Lewis creates a mystery & a mystique about Black women that perhaps, only Black men can attest to

The Biggest Secret in the World

Because I'm nice enough to give this secret away for free, I want you to consider giving a small donation to my company that fights for world peace; decency for Black People; kindness within our Black race; and a Way to send our children off to college {Black Colleges}. I need your help. Read other articles to see what we do and How we do it. Read our Annual report.

If you read further, I hope you will consider sending in a voluntary donation of $25.00:

When A Jewish Person dies they are put in the ground within 48 hours {If they are a practicing Jewish Person}. This has some sort of metamorphic circumstance that helps them, through a chemical process, maintain control of often stolen intelligence and continue to dominate world markets; certain fields of study & fields of commerce {ER.GO. The movie industry; the field of law; the medical profession; Wall Street; The advertising industry; Administrative positions in Black for-profit and Black non-profit agencies and businesses which they have no business running; School administrations; Jewelry Industry; Heads of large corporations; and even illegal dealings with illegal drugs and underworld activities such as pornography and prostitution. I do not hate Jewish People, but I think the unfair advantages they have, reflected in How they run such industries and fields of study, needs desperately to end, for their own continued existence and for the sustainability of a more fair and decent world. I AM not kidding!!

Important Letter to Viacom...

Dear Viacom & Viacom Leaders, Representatives, Owners & Stock Holders; Xphinity Leaders, Representatives & Stock Holders :

I Am Pro-Black, I Am a Black political activist who is more fair-minded than most activists. I Am also Black and proudly Gay. I Am not going to write you a letter that is unfair and unbalanced.

I don’t watch much tv at all. I Am spelling it with a small t and a small v because I think television is run and produced by people who don’t have much vision of what our future as a nation of People should look like. Reruns of ``Married with Children'' are all they can think of at TBS and BET comes up with ``Martin''. Where is the LOVe and where is the thinking for People who think and want to grow and experience something tangibly invigorating on an intellectual tip when they turn on the television?  I think Oprah has a much better idea with some of the Tyler Perry night time soap operas. I AM, however, rarely a fan of Tyler Perry’s because night time soaps don’t leave much to the imagination or much in the Way of intellectual growth. The Oprah series that looks at faith, Spirituality & religion is one series I was interested in watching until I saw a very real lack of color in the People who were Her guests. This turned me off and made me not want to watch at all.  I AM not saying we need a bunch more History Channels that show hour after hour of Hitler and His not-so merry men.  We need the People to have much more freedom to choose what stations they want instead of having the station providers ``bundle’’ together what is available in certain packages that are over-priced & inclusive of a great amounts of  ``programming’’ that few People really want to spend the time to watch. You have effectively lost me as a customer due to this lack of sensitivity towards customers .  I now rent movies and other videos from the library for free because I cannot afford cable tv. My fantasy tv cable ``bundle’’ would be Arts & Entertainment;  A real Black-owned tv network that takes into consideration the real talents and gifts that Black People have to offer [none such exists that I know of]; The Cartoon Network with plenty of cartoons from the 1950’s & 1960’s; Black music concerts – specializing in more sophisticated Black Pop, Soul music and Jazz; a real news network that delivers news with balance & as much clarity as possible and with little concern for who is paying for the commercials, and who pays regular staff members on some decent scale while not paying superstar anchors an undeserved king’s ransom; Something that provides cable coverage of community and Off-Broadway theater such as what was provided by The New Federal Theater in Manhattan in the 1980’s; Black theater and Black independent films; and a sports station that includes track & field {often banned from tv because it shows the consistent physical domination of Black men over White men}; and tennis for us who think football is a gruesome, violent sport that should  be taken off of television. Until the public is able to bundle themselves a cable bundle like the one I mentioned here and for under $25.00 a month --- I stand opposed to cable tv and only watch for the 40 to 50 minutes I happen to be a the gym and Am unable to not watch because the large screens are right there in front of my face.  This is why I Am extremely upset that White corporation executives and a White owner took over Viacom when Mr. Johnson sold it a few years ago. We, as Black People, desperately need television to cater more to our own fantasy of what TV should be,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,      not what White producers and tv executives think Black People want to see.  I could get about 20 Brothers and Sisters off the street and produce much, much better shows than are available on Viacom. {I'm waiting for someone to give me just such a chance.}.   Any moderate viewer of tv knows tv is a wasteland of silliness and mostly a waste of time. What does one really get after watching another BET Awards Show as far a cultural, political Spiritual enrichment? Not much.  What does Viacom do with all that Black money it makes? What makes the executives at Viacom think they actually deserve to own such a station as BET which should be used to educate our Black youth and build better values in them, instead of dumbing them down to the low. I ask these questions with all seriousness and hope you have some answers besides the typical corporate drivel and corporate pat answers which only makes the thinking community of Black People even angrier. Let's hear a positive, forward-moving response with some plans and ideas for offering some new, exciting and innovative programming that many Black thinking People will enjoy.

Peace & Blessings,

Brother Tracy Gibson,
President, Chief Executive Officer & Founder of Brother Tracy Gibson & Associates, Incorporated -- an almost 10-year-ole form dedicated to building better values for Black People and helping us do our best.

May Day Must Bring JOY This Year.....2016... The U.S. needs to do the same thing.................

I wrote a letter to several communist countries about not displaying their military might on May Day last year, and I'm doing the same thing again this year. I Am doing this in the name of Peace and international decency and a peaceful end to the outrageous militarism that was sparked by the Reagan years and has, for the most part, continued under all  other North American presidents. I would like and I Am asking and begging the socialist camp to show some restraint and instead of showing off military wares, armaments, and guns and armed troops on May Day like they usually do, I Am asking them to have Big Parades with plenty of Peaceful, Loving, & Kind children playing, dancing and singing with plenty of nice music, laughter and song.  Maybe even some international Rap music, and other culturally diverse music from Africa {Chad, Namibia, South Africa, Cameroon, Nigeria, Kenya} , China, Japan, North Korea, Venezuela , Cuba, & The United States of Native America. This would be a peaceful showing of a very important natural resource that often gets overlooked -- the world's children!!!  The showing of armaments by communist  countries is usually used to bolster & speed  the approval countries like the U.S. and Israel getting the money they need for their own military and thusly the arms race continues to no good end for the world's People. Children are the most precious resource of any country. If we want a decent future for them with our precious planet earth still in tact, we need to save the environment, end nuclear proliferation and the military arms race, and find solutions for inner cities in the United States & throughout the world that are economically feasible, about sustainability, racially workable and racially tolerant, about diversity, about inclusion, and about providing economic opportunity for everyone--not just the wealthy and the White. The Congress in the U.S. shows off the pictures of ``those bad communists'' when they go to the North American People and ask for money for the newest weapons and the new military technologies that often do nothing much but take money away from needed education programs, food programs for needy People, and for protecting and saving the environment. Other social and life saving programs also suffer financially due to the difficulties military financing causes. We, in the U.S. and in other parts of the world, need to be thinking about making our economies more peaceful and peaceful time and not at all connected to spreading more war, hatred and destruction. I will be sending this letter out to many People in an effort that they, in turn, send it out to many People also. If you receive this letter or e-mail, please forward it to your friends, family and the media as you see fit. I think we can make a bit of a fuss with this by may One. -- May Day. I was going to do a lot of research, but, frankly, my dear, I don't have time with working and the New Boyfriend and all. If you see fit to make any changes to this e-mail, and resend it, please try very hard to retain it's original peaceful and Loving Spirit. If you need to call me, please do so at 1 215 823 9985 or e-mail be at BlackExecutive46@GMail.Com
