Today’s Birthdays

11 August 2008 5 Comments

Alex Haley, the man who brought the African diaspora to life through Roots, would turn 87 today if he were still alive. He shares a birthday with Juwanna Mann‘s Miguel A. Nunez, Jr., now 44, the man whose dismal performances and questionable hair choices tend to make me point out that he’s actually Dominican and not particularly related to Kunta n’ em like I am. Belief in astrology decreased.

    Hello there!

    I didn’t realize that this was Alex Haley’s birthday!!!

    I didn’t realize that he would be that old either…

    Wow…

    He is absolutely a legend and I hope that we never forget how powerfully his work in tracing his own ancestry impacted our lives….

    Peace, blessings and DUNAMIS!
