Spelman College, Class of 1892.
I started this Tumblr to accompany my main blog www.thetruthrenaissance.wordpress.com. It will basically consist of quotes, lyrics, links to my blog posts on wordpress, and random pictures of things I love (i.e. Ettiqute, Luxury Items, Quotes, Hip Hop, Women, Film, Music, African-American History, Fashion, etc). Basically, this site is full of what I like to call the "Aesthetics of my life".
Follow me on twitter @therealbenpete or check out my Wordpress blog for more contact info.
Sidenote: This blog is inspired by Stevie Wonder's "If It's Magic" off the album "Songs in the Key of Life". Look it up.. Enjoy!
“Sometimes I feel discriminated against, but it does not make me angry. It merely astonishes me. How can any deny themselves the pleasure of my company? It’s beyond me.”
