Hidden Colors is a documentary series about the real and untold history of people of color around the globe. These films discusses some of the reasons the contributions of African and aboriginal people have been left out of the pages of history. It is a great series of hidden knowledge that has been eliminated from our history books.

Unfortunately due to copy right infringement the Hidden Color 2 documentary has been deleted from my YouTube account. Please click the link in the title above and it will redirect you to a website that will allow you to stream and/or download the full documentary for FREE.

NOTE: If videos do not play please click the links in the titles. (There may be several pop ups that appear they will suggest you update your media player just ignore and X them out and continue as a free user.)

Morning Motivation: Mistakes

"Beloveds, don't be afraid to admit when you're wrong. It is okay to make a mistake. A mistake, an error, a poor choice, or bad decision does not mean there is something wrong with you. We make mistakes because we are human." - Iyanla Vanzant

20 Minute Recipes: Bananas Foster Dessert (For Adults)

Bananas Foster

If you're using a gas stove, be careful, because the rum may ignite; if it does, simply wait for any flame to subside, and continue.

  • PREP: 10 MINS


  • 1 pint vanilla ice cream
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup dark-brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup dark or gold rum
  • 3 bananas, peeled, halved crosswise and then lengthwise


  1. STEP 1

    Set ice cream out to soften. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat butter, sugar, and rum over medium-low. Cook, stirring occasionally, until smooth and bubbly, 4 to 6 minutes.
  2. STEP 2

    Add bananas, and cook, gently swirling skillet, until bananas are just warmed through, 1 to 2 minutes. Scoop ice cream into bowls, and top with bananas and caramel sauce. Serve immediately.
