BET premieres ‘The Book of Negroes’ Monday, February 16 at 8PM EST (VIDEO)

Posted by | Ray Cornelius 

BET continues to celebrate Black History Month with the premiere of its first-ever miniseries, “The Book of Negroes.”  The six-part historical drama in the tradition of “Roots,” is based on Lawrence Hill’s award-winning and the Oprah Winfrey-listed novel (known in the United States as Someone Knows My Name). The highly anticipated television event will run over the course of three consecutive nights in two-hour installments starting Monday, February 16, 2015 at 8 PM.

As previously reported, “The Book of Negroes” depicts the extraordinary life journey of Aminata Diallo, an indomitable African woman who cuts a swath through a world that is pre-disposed to underestimate her. Kidnapped by slave traders in West Africa and subsequently enslaved in South Carolina, Aminata must navigate her way through the American Revolution in New York, the isolated refuge of Nova Scotia and the treacherous jungles of Sierra Leone before ultimately securing her freedom in England at the dawn of the 19th century. The star-studded cast features lead actress Aunjanue Ellis, Oscar winners  Cuba Gooding Jr. and Louis Gossett Jr., Lyriq Bent, Oscar nominee Jane Alexander, Ben Chaplin and Allan Hawco.

Check out the trailer and a panel discussion below featuring Lawrence Hill along with the film’s cast and other special invited guests.

I recommend you use some lube, too. That reduces the chances of condom
rupture. You can buy it at Target or WalMart in the condom
aisle. The larger ring is made to go behind the testicles, either by popping them
in one at a time, or by stretching the ring enough
that it all goes in at once. Cock rings are intended to help keep
blood flow in the penis and can even make it feel larger
than normal. Rings should only be worn for 30 minutes before being taken off (even if they feel
comfortable), so they don’t lead to any medical problems.

male sex toys This product works with a pump. It is easy to push and you will always get the same small amount.
I have to highlight the word ‘small’ here unfortunately, this is one of the few cons regarding System JO for women premium.
Some accumulation is even possible, though it’s not a sure bet yet.
Saturday highs may reach only the upper 30s to mid 40s.
Confidence: Low. Other, please. Fluffy? Naah.
I want to feel it. Steve Smith, his vice captain David
Warner and newcomer Cameron Bancroft were caught red handed scuffing the ball in the third Test that
South Africa eventually won. Smith and Warner both broke down in tears at press conferences on their return home after being
slapped with 12 month bans by Cricket Australia while Bancroft was handed a nine month sentence.
The tears didn end there. male sex toys

dildo You control these functions with two simple buttons
which are located in the black circle on the
battery unit. The top button is to turn the power on or
off, but the bottom button controls the speeds. In between these buttons are three
lights up dots every function has its own lighting. It also says “Please set to ‘low’ for infrared heat when applying on face or other sensitive areas.” This confuses me.
If I’m massaging my face, I want the vibrations on low.
If I wanted to use the heated side (and put the infrared heat
on low), I have to turn the vibrations to high, which is just not comfortable for use on your face..

“For me, this word ‘cliteracy’ perfectly breaks down the idea of the project. It’s this pithy, wonderful little word that encapsulates so much so quickly and so simply. Although initially totally supportive of the Vietnam Catholic minority administration of President Ng nh Dim, the Kennedy administration grew increasingly frustrated with Dim because his crackdown against protesting Buddhist monks that sparked a Buddhist Revolt where several monks committed self immolation covered by the world press. Hence, on 1 Nov 1963, with the tacit approval of the Kennedy administration, Vietnamese military officers launch a coup d’tat against Diem and on the next day he was assassinated. By the time President Kennedy was himself assassinated he had established the MACV Command in country and had 16,000 troops in country with plans for a significant escalation. horse dildo

gay sex toys Don’t mess with your pills until you talk to your doctor. Call them and ask if it’s alright for you to skip your placebos. And understand that if the answer is yes, there is no guarentee that you won’t menstruate or spot at least a little bit, because some women still do that. I showed a few pictures and gave her a good idea of what I was looking for. Now, the sides have no body at all. They just lay flat against my head. You could call that the “Media
Hype” phenomenon. It is obvious that interracial mixing is being encourage and promoted especially in the US and a handful of other Western countries. I’ve also noticed that during tv programmes where their is a large audience, the cameramen will often search throughout the audience to try to find an interracial couple to target because that, evidently, is the “in” (or PC) thing to do despite the fact that throughout the audience
of perhaps 500 people there might be 4 or 5 interracial couples.

Using protection expresses responsibility and maturity and signals that you
take your own health and that of your partner seriously.
That’s pretty darn sexy! Why don’t you talk to your partner about incorporating safer sex practices?”The question is not who will let me, but who is going to stop me.” Ayn Rand.
Of course, the entire flogger is made of leather.
The leather did not really have scent when it came to me, and it’s
honestly not of the highest quality, but it
still a fairly nice leather and it does have that sensual, smooth feel that leather always has.
It is a well made flogger and has not shown any sign of falling apart, but I do not think that it’s a flogger that you should bet on keeping for a lifetime (hopefully
though, since it is so pretty).. male sex toys

adult stores near me I pee 7 times more than the average Joe
every single day. It’s just who I am. If you’re all bent
out of shape about the chance of getting pregnant, it could be your anxiousness
that’s causing you to pee so much. It is made out of
leather and neoprene, and seemed to be pretty well made and
sturdy. There are two neoprene rings that are connected by leather straps and snap closures.
The larger ring is meant to be put behind the testicles, while the smaller sits at the base of the penis.
Well after our extended sex session, the Hollow Strap on made my wife’s pussy sore so she
is a little leery about trying it again anytime soon.
But, she did strap it on slide a condom over it, lubed it up and took it to my
tight little butt. It was fantastic. adult stores near me

animal dildo When it first came to me I cut it out of the plastic it was in and all of the interchangeable plastic heads came flying out.
I realized at that moment, I wasn’t going to like them.
And I was correct on my very early assumption. Using scientific data,
historical information, as well as references to architecture, porn, pop culture and human rights, the “100 Laws” have been a
way for Wallace to lay out her “case for the clit,” she says.
Natural laws are inalienable. In much of the world women do not hold dominion over their own bodies, and
even in this country, women are too often acquiescing to sex acts that do
not give them pleasure,” she told Creem.. animal dildo

sex shop What this boils down to is I’ve been wanting to go farther sexually (even if it’s just a hand job) and she either is not ready at the moment, ill, menstruating, busy, or tired. I know that those are mostly things beyond either of our control, it just gets to me. I’ve talked to her about this many times, last time I admit I pushed it a little. 7 Please provide an email address for us to contact you.

fleshlight The Escapade also has a particularly unique tip. While still being slightly curved like most prostate massagers, the tip of this massager also has an added “bump” on the end of it to further stimulate the prostate. For those who already know where their prostate is located, this extra addition can help provide pinpoint stimulation to an aroused prostate.. At my highschool we have several teens that are of middle eastern descent, two of whom are close friends of mine. They continue to wear the scarves that they wore back home, (it’s four families that transfered here from Iraq and Afghanistan, mainly to get away from the confusion and turmoil in the middle east). But the girls refuse to stop wearing them, using the fact that America allows freedom of religion, and this is part of their religion fleshlight.
