Shades of Afrika - Feature Poet Until. . .

I was invited to be a feature at the beautiful Shades of Afrika "Griot Cafe" by Darryl Lewis known as Subject Matter. This was my very first twenty (20) minute feature as well as my first time attending here and it was enjoyable. Loved the atmosphere, the welcoming of everyone, including the owner. The establishment is airy, arousing with aromatics and just speaks to your soul of creativity.

However, meanwhile, I need you to check out this place; it carries essential/body oils, they do custom framing, they have a salon and book store along with many other trinkets to buy.
