======> SWIPE <===== .
I was just a lil girl when I first saw this movie and I remember how moved I was by it. When you are a #Black little girl growing up anywhere in this world there are things that you get to understand at a very early stage. You get to understand who is your people and who's the Enemy of your people... .
Watching #ShakaZulu and seeing this amazing looking and powerful Black man dressed in fancy attire lol was mesmerizing to me. And empowering. As I was witnessing on screen the life of a fearless #Black#African historical #hero , proving that we were descendants of #Kings and #Queens and that our #History didn't start with slavery. .
I remember that scene when Shaka was bedridden and unable to move due to a battle injury and how the #Ancestors were called upon to help him get back up to show his people that he was still standing and he was still the mawfukin #King :)
Shaka Zulu was deeply feared by his enemies including the British who thought they could get rid of him easily. He proved them that he was not that kind of weak nigga lol and the inferno they wished upon him didn't scare him either cuz "where he ah come from they eat fire..." .
Big ups to great South African actor #HenryCele who brilliantly played Shaka in the movie and all the amazing cast including #GraceJones :)

Happy birthday to the number 1 mom. Even with having 30 guests in and out of the house, she still finds time to work on a farm, house break a puppy, go on high altitude hikes and cook 3 meals a day for everyone. Love ya mom! #hero
What to do? Well, you could buy the #house that Gaud built, a #red#Ferrari station wagon, a #poodle named Fifi to leave it all to, and a machine pistol at Cabellas (get the 20 round clip to rumble with third cousins, who are coming with brass knuckles...) OR you could disappear completely, and plan to reemerge a #hero after starting a private war against a corrupt #Caribbean island governor. That's what Howard Rosen does in The Instant Celebrity, knowing he will be forgotten after 15 minutes of #fame , then left for dead by hospice nurses after the hospital bankrupts him for treatments of wounds inflicted by long lost relatives and jealous high school classmates. (The hospital will, no doubt, find a clause in your #health insurance that voids your policy while doctors charge $500 per aspirin and $25,000 per bandage.) Why not have #fun , instead of being hounded by the Dobermans of Zombie Nation? 💰 #Hollywood#Powerball#satire#adventure#suspense based on a true #travel story. Set in #Miami and #WestIndies
