THE FIRST KING IN THE WESTERN SUDAN BECOMES MUSLIM...
In the 11th century (circa 1000 C.E.) a powerful king by the name of Wārjābī who ruled the Takrur empire accepted Islam and turned his kingdom into an Islamic empire. The reversion of Wārjābī to Islam proved to be a success, as he consolidated his power and sought to spread Islam amongst his people, as well as neighboring states and tribes. Wārjābī is held to have been the first king in the Western Sudan to accept Islam, although Islam had reached certain tribes in the Saharan desert as early as the late 7th century. Wārjābī implemented Islamic law in his kingdom and established justice. It would be Wārjābī's son who would form an alliance with the Almoravids in an effort to conquer neighboring states for Islam.

***Join us tomorrow!***We created BLACKAMAZING Brunch NYC so that professionals could have an ongoing opportunity to connect and build authentic connections.
We know how difficult it can be, whether you're traveling, new to the city or a longtime resident, to find people with similar interests.
We noticed that a lot of networking events in the city were perfect for exchanging business cards but did not have any real dialogue happening between guests to bridge the gap.
BLACKAMAZING Brunch is a self-guided experience and guests are encouraged to mix-and-mingle at their own pace. You never know who you'll be standing next to/sitting with. It could be a new friend, client or business partner!
We invite you to stop by any of the participating locations on Saturday October 21, 2017 and October 28, 2017 to enjoy brunch and meet new people!

Hatchepsut ou Hatshepsut foi uma grande esposa real, regente e rainha-faraó do Antigo Egito. Viveu no começo do século XV a.C, pertencendo à XVIII Dinastia do Império Novo. O seu reinado, de cerca de vinte e dois anos, corresponde a uma era de prosperidade econômica e relativo clima de paz.
Hatshepsut nasceu em Tebas. Era a filha mais velha do rei Tutmés I (Tutmósis I) e da rainha Amósis.
Quando o seu pai morreu Hatshepsut teria cerca de vinte e quatro anos. Casou com seu meio-irmão, Tutmés II, seguindo um costume que existia no Antigo Egito que consistia em membros da família real casarem entre si. Após a morte de Tutmés II, cujo reinado é pouco conhecido, o enteado de Hatshepsut, Tutmés III, era ainda uma criança que não estava apta a governar. Por esta razão Hatchepsut, na qualidade de grande esposa real do rei Tutmés II, assumiu o poder como regente na menoridade de Tutmés III. Mais tarde, Hatshepsut decidiu assumir a dignidade de faraó e governar em seu direito.

#PressPlayDBW : Sit back, relax and enjoy our founder Flo (@iflofreely) reading an excerpt from the affirmation letter of the week:
I love you and this is something I want to say to you. Certain pains can make you sick if you hold them too closely. So it’s okay to put them down for a while. Give the arms rest. Your arms that is, the ones that have been carrying deadly pains so close to your heart. It’s okay to give your heart space from the thing that threatens its heartbeat. Sometimes.
It’s okay to be cold for a while. Not dead, but cool to the touch. The opposite of warm and inviting. And if that’s dead, then it’s okay to be dead to the things that threaten your life for a while. Okay to step outside your body and wonder what your body might do next. Just until it’s safe enough to jump back in your body again and do that right thing.It’s okay.
I’m not telling you to disappear and go numb and stay that way. I’m telling you that sometimes you have to take a break from the life you’ve lived to stop that life from breaking you. And it’s okay. Okay to take a break sometimes.
And you don’t need explanation or special circumstance. You don’t need coherent announcements. You can just pull back more and more for a while and recede into the safe space you’ve abruptly fashioned for an emergency or for moments just like this. And it’s okay.
Every fire that calls your name is not worthy of your answer. And every person who mimes love isn’t worthy of your love. Every scar you wear wasn’t always this small and sanitized. Some were once big and infected. So it’s okay to be still for a while and give time time and give space space and tell yourself that doing nothing is okay.
These words were not easy to say, because you were raised to be a fighter. Every single day of your life you were required to fight your way to the next day. But, it’s okay to put give yourself rest for a while. Okay to decide: not today.
Feeling so inspired and enlightened after attending this year's #chicagoideasweek ! 'A Seat at the Table' was one my favorite talks. Three woke black women shared the stage to discuss how staying true to who they are and their passions have paved the way to their success. This is so important in a world where truth isn't always valued. Lena also dropped one of the best one-liners I'll always remember "Maybe it's because I'm from Chicago, but if you drop me into a jungle, I'm gonna come out with a full belly and a fur coat." That's right, Chicagoans are fierce, resilient and determined. Zoom in to see more from this beautiful visualization.
