pgp389: a Punk Black Fest

The rhythms are discordant, raw and angry. The base is either on par or behind the roar of the guitar, screaming fire to patrons who lose themselves into the rage of music that others would say is not their own – ugly words that they all stopped listening to a long time ago… PUNK BLACK is an independent rock music showcase featuring musicians of color. Started less than a year ago, the event...

Nambi… a nature trail interlude

Nambi… a nature trail interlude

This was Nambi’s spot. Following her initial nature stroll, the nubian beauty had a notion of an ideal spot to revisit the wild. And on a momentary interlude at the spot she’d discovered, she blazed a trail through an, until then, undiscovered wilderness filled with lush organic beauty, bubbling brooks and inspiration. Light cast through the openings left by the leaves and tree limbs and wind.  Na...

earthSistas… Remembering lakeside strolls

earthSistas… Remembering lakeside strolls

Spring has arrived and the earthSistas are blooming all around us. Like the newly opened flower, these women are breathing their sensuality out into the crisp Spring air. Looking out on all the new blooms, I ruminate on all the blooms that make up the varied space that is Pangea’s Garden. These beauties deserve a moment to experience sunshine on bare skin, playful comrade, and the sensuality...

A night of FELA at Apache Cafe

A night of FELA at Apache Cafe

Vincent Apache Cafe has always been my joint. If you’ve been here in Pangea for a while then you know that Monday nights at the Apache were one of the founding influences on the cultivation of the Garden. So when the opportunity for the earthSistas to have a Monday night of their own, I thought it was great. Last month, earthSistas came together to create a FELA-inspired night that, to me, w...

FELA’s muses at the Apache Interlude

FELA’s muses at the Apache Interlude

Vincent I really should not say this but Pangea’s events are the bane of  my existence.  I mean it, really. They are SO chaotic and organic and stressful. They eat up too much of my time, making it difficult to maintain any semblance of an editorial schedule for the website. The events are always demanding. The earthSistas! THEY ARE DEMANDING! There are SO MANY last minute changes, mishaps a...

pgp354: Sweaters, stockings and garters, oh my!

Sindel I am going to be bold and say that I feel like the Garden became a “kinda-sorta” active website for awhile I felt Pangea’s Garden had lost it focused to cultivate. The weeds were dried out, and the water  began to evaporate. But the Gardener had faith in one particular seed. With a little persuasion, and much hope, the Garden secretly manifested exotic beauty among the mos...

Nambi blue… an Apache Interlude

Nambi blue… an Apache Interlude

Pangea’s recent experiences at the Apache Cafe have been fortuitous. And as we prepare for this evening’s events I decided to revisit the Garden’s first night at the Bohemian Circus. It was chaotic. All of the plans for the night went out the window. And it was sensual. It was beautiful. These are a handful of the images we did not share of that night and although they are a part...

pgp346: Nambi at the Apache Cafe

It was earthSista Nambi‘s first night at the Apache Cafe and Lounge. She and earthBrotha Stitch brought a young sista with them to Apache’s Art Monday where an artists’ model stands on the podium, posing, while artists and photographers create works inspired by his or her poses. It was a typical Monday night for the spot. For Nambi and Stitch and friend, it was their first time e...

Nambi & Stitch… as we lay

Nambi & Stitch… as we lay

Spoon. A huddled embrace gave way to a whispered heated breath teasing earthSista Nambi‘s ear. Tickled by the sheer closeness, she smiled and turned and locked eyes with the earthBrotha Stitch. A thousand words were spoken in a momentary glance that gave way to a simple kiss which led to a provocative and penetrating embrace. Daring smiles led to tender touches that were not ginger. Fingers ...

pgp343: FELA’s Beauty, a Pangea Meet&Greet

Over the summer we hosted a group photoshoot that carried the theme, FELA’s Beauty, and we featured images from the event HERE. Pangea has a history of creatives who, on occasion, have created captures with this cultural aesthetic in mind and in this case, photographers Lori Branch, Bobby Williams, Kenya Durden, Leonard Herring and myself  created an inspired collection of Afrocentric sensua...
