Raise your hand if were surprised to see recaps of the #BlackLivesMatter and #AllLivesMatter social media campaigns popping up on mainstream media last month. Right, that would be basically nobody! And that includes the Quotable Poet because he kept his pen marching in step with the masses with 2 strong pieces. The first was his Selma Revisited series and the second was his story on the new novels by superstar authors Harper Lee and Toni Morrison.

At the same time, a lot of Soldiers of Love, like Senator Cory Booker on Twitter and FamilyShare on Facebook, shared his vibes on Valentine’s Day. For some post-9/11 authors getting tagged for dedications to romance and African-American history at the same time might sound kind’a schizo. When I t comes to QP Aberjhani’s commitment to social justice from his expressions of mystical-love-passion you can’t really separate the two. That’s why we’re giving you 3 for 3 in honor of #Selma50 :

Passionate about Social Justice

“Dreams can not only come true, but they can actually create revolutions in the human heart and provide healing for the human spirit.” –– QP Aberjhani (from A Writer’s Journey to Selma, Alabama)

“There are times when the political circumstances of a given hour define what we recognize as the human condition. The violent racial turmoil and subsequent moral victory of those who stood strong against it in Selma, Alabama, and elsewhere throughout the United States in 1965 was precisely such a time. So are the human rights and broader spectrum of ethical predicaments currently before the world’s polarized populations in 2015.” –– QP Aberjhani (A Writer’s Journey to Selma, Alabama)

Mainstream media black men geurrilla decontextualization quote by Aberjhani with graphic by BrainyQuote“Mainstream media’s representation, or its guerrilla decontextualization, of black men’s lives in particular can set the stage for erroneous assumptions capable of damaging an individual or a nation.” QP Aberjhani (from Text & Meaning in the Civil Rights Act of 1964 with image from BrainyQuote)

 Passionate about Mystical Love

Love as a concrete foundation quote by Aberjhani image by Top Famous Quotes“Love as a concrete foundation” qoute by Aberjhani with typographic art by Top Famous Quotes “Love as a concrete foundation for an authentically functional civilization requires the around-the-clock labors of forgiveness. Without it, Love fails, Friendship fails, Intelligence fails, Humanity: fails.” – QP Aberjhani (from Journey through the Power of the Rainbow, typographic art from Topfamousquotes.com)

“Most people are slow to champion love because they fear the transformation it brings into their lives. And make no mistake about it: love does take over and transform the schemes and operations of our egos in a very mighty way.” ––QP Aberjhani (from Illuminated Corners: Collected Essays Volume 1)

 This fire that we call loving quote by Aberjhani with text graphic by FamilyShare on Facebook

“This fire that we call loving is too strong for human minds. But just right for human souls.” –Aberjhani (from Elemental: The Power of Illuminated Love)
