What a year 2020 has been for you, me, and for Chocolate Cocaine!
With all that has happened this year, the time has flown by quickly. Can you believe it’s almost 2021? This year for me, personally, I was extremely sick in February. (I think I had the virus). In March, my son and I, along with the city of Nashville, survived a tornado. COVID-19 shut the world down, and before we knew it, we were all masked up and working from home – if we were working at all. The most recent and crazy event, as if 2020 could get more outlandish, somebody set a bomb off in downtown Nashville on Christmas morning.
Some of the exciting and fun parts of the year was being able to travel even with the restrictions. I started my first semester in a Ph.D. program. Even though I had to go on furlough with my job, I could still keep up with all of my household expenses and later have a job to go back to. The best part of 2020 – I survived it all! Yes, honey, God is good!
Chocolate Cocaine was able to tell many chocolate-y good tales as well. I hope you were able to learn something exciting and new every time there was a post. Let’s look at some of the past Chocolate Cocaine posts, shall we?
I highlighted some fabulous and sexy Black women who were fearless standing in their sexual truth and made history doing it. One of my favorite women I highlighted was Zelda Barbour Wynn Valdes, a black fashion designer who was personally commissioned by Hugh Hefner to create the original Playboy Bunny costumes. Yaaassss!! Josephine Baker, Diahann Carroll, Ruby Dee, Dorothy Dandridge, Eartha Kitt, and Mae West were just a few of the celebrity clients she designed dresses for.
I introduced you to Lucille Bogan, the blues singer, with her risqué lyrics. In 1930 she began singing of prostitution, homosexuality, and sex. In her song titled, B D Woman’s Blues (BD referring to Bull Dykes), she wrote the following lyrics…
B.D. women, you sure can’t understand
They got a head like a sweet angel and they walk just like a natural man…
B.D. women, they all done learnt their plan
They can lay their jive just like a natural man…
B.D. women, B.D. women, you know they sure is rough
They all drink up plenty whiskey and they sure will strut their stuff…
There were also amazing interviews. Key Thomas of Iced Adornments helps you get waisted with her beautifully handcrafted waist beads and other fine jewelry for men and women. You can find her on her website, www.IcedAdornments.com, Facebook, and Instagram. Or, she can be reached by email at 2GetIced@gmail.com.
There was the interview with the memorizing photographer, Brian Dwayne of Blk Touch. I described his work as being fifty shades of delicious chocolate! I found myself scrolling nonstop through his photos on IG. Black, sensual, and breathtaking is this brotha’s signature when he creates art with his models and a camera. You can email Brian for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org, check out some of his work at blktouch.com, or find him on Instagram at Blktouch or at BrianDwayne.
If your energy needs healing, I hope you caught the interview with Wayne Bey. He’s called an energy healer but also goes by Metaphysician, Spiritualist, or Spiritual Healer. He has been trained in various modalities of energy healing such as Tantric Energy Healing, Intuitive Readings, and Quantum Heart Work, which helps clear out blockages on a higher level, Charka Balancing Reiki. Wayne and his services are mobile, which means he comes to you.
