If you haven’t been to BAM’s DanceAfrica Bazaar then you should at least make your way to the Memorial weekend event at least once. As a citizen of the lovely borough of Brooklyn, I’ve been there and done that but I still go at least once because the JEWELRY, ART, THINGS and the PEOPLE can be inspiring or at least interesting to look at. As planned, I hauled BIG colorful bangles – LUV them! [ 3 for $10 HELLO BARGAIN!] Also on the list was a perfect summer African print bag but to my chagrin, no score there.
Then here comes a bright spot.
A rush of joy filled my spirit when I meet the magnificent Quazi King. I’m standing there in conversation with a friend and/or two, this man asks me to pose for his camera. Being a past victim to suspect photographers, I asked what the images were for. Then someone said, this is Quazi! I never held his face in my memory but his images were stained and embedded in my consciousness as I heard his name. There are no words for his talent and it was beyond a pleasure to meet him and to be blessed by his lens.
