Slick girl.

Without being there, Kola Boof will be well represented at the funeral of Sudan's Vice President John Garang:

Look here. Even the Arab Sudanese like the poem:

Hello all.



Kola

Yes, my poem WAS read at Garang's funeral---and it's now a highlight of life.

I loved him, immensely, and I'm not expecting the peace treaty to last much longer without him.

I've been working hard on my new novel---which has been slowed down by sickness. I really have not been well, and I think a lot of it is "depression" at the realization that I am getting older and am not able to save, change, DO as much as I would like to.

I feel frustrated and weary---I'm sure most of you have felt at some point like you wanted to just give up on black people.

I am so disinterested in the whole light skin-dark skin thing, and although I noticed several people talking about it on the board---I'm just tired of talking about it.

I wish that ABM would either send me the essay for my book "Diary" or give an explanation as to why he isn't/hasn't.

**Nyibol, I sent you email.

Hope everyone is doing OK. I really am not well, physically, but still attempting to find out what's wrong.

My new novel is "INCREDIBLE". Awesome as though sent by God.

Give up on black people to do what?

Is the moderator of this area actually the author or someone using her name?

West africa,

Yes. Famed Sudanese-American author, poetess, warrior and social activist Kola Boof is (most assuredly) the moderator of AALBC.com's Thumper's Corner Discussion Board "The Kool Room - Hosted by Kola Boof".

So WELCOME!

Please visit and post your views as frequently as you can. And please invite your kin and friends (and rivals, even) to do the same.

You and they will be glad you did. :-)

West Africa,

You sound like a REPORTER up to no good.

Which is why I'm ignoring your rat's ass.

You know got-damned well they couldn't title this place KOLA BOOF without my permission.

Well then...WHO exactly are you West African?

People usually introduce themselves, and you haven't yet.
