“We will now have an A&B selection from our choir.”—In black churches, this means the choir will sing 2 songs before the pastor preaches. In the COGIC, the choir sings a song and then they have a “Sermonic Solo” which is usually when the best singer in the church tears the place up before the Bishop speaks. (via blkproverbs)
Let’s be real, in a time before the internet people didn’t have more adventures and make more meaningful connections. They watched TV and listened to CDs. Before that they listened to records and read magazines. Before that they listened to the radio and read bad dime novels. Before that they embroidered or some shit.
People have been staying inside and ignoring other people for as long as there have been buildings.
