A Tribute to Cecilia Armena King


                                                                      Died: November 19, 2013

This post is dedicated to a legend in her own, Cecilia Armena King.  Not only was she an amazing poet, painter, producer but she was a very interesting and deep person.  All it took, for her personality to blossom was the hour I spend with her on my talk show.   


Cecilia Armena King is the great, great granddaughter of daguerreotypist, Augustus Washington, who took the famous portrait of John Brown the abolitionist (1800-1859), taken circa 1846-47. She is the granddaughter of former President of Liberia, Charles D. B. King in West Africa, and the daughter of Cecil D.B. King and Armena Cooper Hines. Also, the granddaughter of James F Cooper, a renowned and accomplished merchant in Liberia. He was also the grandson of Augustus F Washington.

Cecelia became “Miss Liberia” in 1972 Pageant” and went on to England, where she competed with Linda Carter (also know as Wonder Woman) in “1972 Miss World Pageant”.   Cecilia Armena King is a gifted artist, a gifted writer, poet actress, and painter. Her hand drawing tapestry like pen and ink designs has come to be known as hypnotic artwork. There is always more to be seen. The more you look at it the more you see. They are surrealistic. Her work has travel around the world and has been published in a book titled “Women of the World” a global collection of art; narrated by Claudia Demonte, forwarded by Arlene Raven, published by Pomegranate Communications, Inc. Now one of her pieces called "Cerita" named after her daughter is permanently being housed at the International Museum of Women in San Francisco as part of the original works from the book of “Women of the World”.
Please take the time to view few of her work.  Wish I could share all with you.

                                                      You Appeared
                                                       By Cecilia Armena King
                                                       You appeared in front of my eyes
                                                       And danced through my mind
                                                        Then you penetrated my heart
                                                       And seeped down into my soul
                                                          Now you’re a part of me!

What President Trump and Kim Jong Un Ate

The historic summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un continued midday Tuesday, as the leaders satisfied their appetites while holding negotiations with a contingent of advisers over a working lunch. The lunch, which followed a 45-minute one-on-one meeting between the leaders earlier in the morning and bilateral discussion with senior aides, was held at the Capella Hotel on Singapore’s Sentosa Island. It was far from an intimate affair, with each leader accompanied by a bevy of senior staff, according to the White House. Joining Trump were Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Chief of Staff John Kelly, National Security Advisor John Bolton, U.S. Ambassador to the Philippines Sung Kim, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and Deputy Assistant to the President for Asian Affairs Matthew Pottinger.

Snapchat Slammed for Domestic Violence Meme Featuring Rihanna and Chris Brown

If Kylie Jenner ‘s stock-plummeting Snapchat rant didn’t make you delete the app, maybe this will. Over the weekend, Snapchat found itself in hot water after a now-deleted domestic violence meme featuring Rihanna and Chris Brown went viral. The meme, which was an advertisement for the app “Would You Rather,” asked users whether they would prefer to “slap Rihanna” or “punch Chris Brown.” Almost immediately, screenshots of the ad appeared on Twitter, with many criticizing Snapchat for making light of domestic violence. Is it just me, or is this ad that popped up on my Snapchat extremely tone deaf? Like what were they thinking with this? — Royce Mann (@TheRoyceMann) March 12, 2018 Many considered the ad a mockery of Rihanna’s experience with domestic violence. In 2009, Brown was arrested and charged for physically assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna hours before she was to perform at the Grammy awards. Since the incident, Rihanna has spo
