Friday Fire: If You Could Be Anywhere At Anytime In History, Where Would That Be?

Not gonna beat you all up with a serious question this week, so bear with me. As the deadline for my first book approaches, another one is being formed. I’m co-authoring a fantasy with another writer set in D.C. that should be really hot. I don’t really want to say more until the story is further developed, but on that same vein I’m thinking this question should be a travel through history. If I could be anywhere through time, there would be many possibilities: Of course I would want to be a 10 frames faster than all the assassinations, to see what happened to the dinosaurs, the day Rube Foster chose to fold the Negro Leagues, Wilt’s dime, Gary Anderson’s 1998 NFC Championship miss, Kevin Dyson’s one yard stretch and Webb’s timeout amongst other sports moments that affected me. Pac’s, B.I.G.’s, Scott LaRock’s, Aaliyah’s, Len Bias’, Reggie Lewis’ and Hank Gathers’…hell practically everyone who passed day before their last collective day including Mike, Phyllis Hyman and of course my Mother.

One of the most intriguing topics was the reign of the African Kings and Hannibal of Carthage always comes to mind. Remember when EBONY had the African Kings poster inside? That’s where Hannibal initially intrigued me. I would have loved to fight along side of him. Would have loved to been a part of that time and so many others. I could go on and on of course, but what say you?

    I’d say on a flight with the Tuskeegee Airmen, at the Hotel in Memphis with Dr. King, and most def with Malcolm X the day before his last speech. We need brother Malcolm today, badly.
