Now Available: The Video of Dr. Nathan Hare's 80th Birthday Celebration in Oakland

We are so very thankful that videographer Ken Johnson wanted to video Dr. Hare's birthday party as his gift to the Father of Black Studies. We just finished viewing the video, a two DVD set and are overwhelmed with joy at the love that was expressed by those present at Geoffery's Inner Circle in Oakland.

It is indeed therapeutic to see such expressions of Black Love Lives (Nisa Ra term). We thank all those who were present and those who shared the Open Mike for Dr. Hare. This is a video every North American African should have in their video library of conscious events.

All the participants will receive a free copy. You can order the two set DVD from Black Bird Press for $19.95.

Send your donation to Black Bird Press, 339 Lester Ave. #10, Oakland 94606 or call 510-200-4164. We will give you a money back guarantee you will love and treasure the video of this event that was an outpouring of love for one of our greatest scholars, scientists and mental health workers, in short, a revolutionary that has helped us along the road to Black Liberation, he and his dearly beloved wife Dr. Julia Hare.
