ART: I embody.
By visiting this site, you've entered the world of the Dark Truth (aka The Sunjata Universe). This is the genesis of a power movement. Join me as I rewrite the paradigm of the status quo and destroy the negative images of the Black man.
As a Brooklyn New York Native and child of the 80’s, I was raised with the old Trinidadian mind set that nothing is impossible and hard work equals positive results. I am a published author, cartoonist, painter, spoken word performer, story board artist, script writer, emcee, model, Senior Non-Commissioned Officer in the United States Army and a proud father.
Graduating from the High School of Art and Design with aspirations of Film Making I've produced independent projects such as “Scandalous", “Brain and Brawn" and “The Rumble Ensemble". Two of my most notable music recordings include “Schizo-Phonetics; The Multi- Verse of Mahess" and “Battle Cry Hymns".
I graduated from Touro University with a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration.
My debut novel is entitled Sunjata, Book One: The Blood Wars. In 2014, my follow up novel, Book Two: Weapons, explores the concept of using anything as a weapon to advance one’s own objectives.
I've appeared on an episode of Sesame Street along side his son, Tau Bennett, an accomplished puppeteer. In addition, I also performed in numerous presentations while serving in Operation Enduring Iraqi Freedom in Baghdad in 2004 and Arifjan Kuwait in 2009. My comic strip, O.N.E. appeared in the local Third Army Kuwait magazine called The Desert Voice.
As a Soldier, I volunteered my time to the local community youth centers as a mentor. This includes Physical Fitness, Cartooning instructor, Tutoring, Problem Solving, and Community Service, just to name a few.
Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy your experience. Don't hesitate to contact me in the "Leave a comment" section and order your copy of Sunjata in the "Buy the book here" section.
Have fun and live life. As Sunjata would say, "Be Blessed and Manifest..." Peace.
