A Tribute to our Queen Mother Mama Faye
DR. FAYE MCNAIR-KNOX
OCT. 27th 11A 📣COMMUNITY CALL If you dance "African" or "Afro" in the #BayArea" give thanks to this Pioneering Queen Mother DR FAYE MCNAIR-KNOX, as she was pillar and post, intellectually creative brilliance, birthing Communal legacies that invoke powerFULL activism -- She was grace with unwavering leadership, and a captivating smile.
Mama Faye was among the Pioneering Founding Mothers of those "African Amazons" aka " Fua Dia Congo that pulled #MyKongo" in highschool; I am blessed and imbued to have experienced such kinship and works, transcending elegantly through beloved Daughters/Sistars Halili, Ra'Shida & Ma mingui Muisi-kongo Malonga.
💜Honoring you Dr Faye, will always be a powerful thread in the fabric of my life's works, Matando Mama *Wa dia fua yika dio*
🤓One East Palo Alto (OEPA) Neighborhood Improvement Initiative founded by and lead tenaciously by Dr Faye for 14 yrs has established the "@Faye DrFaye McNair-Knox Memorial Fund" A good give indeed: https://bit.ly/2z2YSmI #givepraisetolife
