blackourstory:

It’s the 1930s, and while elsewhere in the world evil people are poring over maps with plans for plunder and dreams of conquest, cartography is serving a more benign purpose in Harlem, New York City. This Night-Club Map of Harlem is a chart of the fun to be had  in the cultural capital of black America, circa 1932.

At that time, this vibrant community on the northern tip of Manhattan was experiencing what came to be known as the Harlem Renaissance – a flowering of African-American literature, theatre and (jazz) music. This map is focused on the area of Harlem just north of Central Park, where much of that flowering took place.

Perhaps exemplary of that renaissance, this map was drawn by Elmer Simms Campbell (1906-1971), the first African-American cartoonist to be published nationally (in Esquire, Cosmopolitan, The New Yorker and Playboy, among others).  The map faces southwest, is bounded by 110thStreet (in the top left corner), which runs along Central Park’s northern edge, and concentrates on Lenox Avenue and Seventh Avenue (“or heaven”).

Oshun, the Nigerian goddess (Orisha) who reigns over love, intimacy, beauty, wealth and diplomacy. Through time the importance of Oshun has been lost she is very important in Nigerian culture because Oshun is the “unseen mother present at every gathering”, because Oshun is the Yoruba understanding of the cosmological forces of water, moisture, and attraction. Therefore, she is believed to be omnipresent and omnipotent. Her power is represented in another Yoruba proverb which reminds us that “no one is an enemy to water” and therefore everyone has need of and should respect and revere Oshun, as well as her followers. Many Cubans to this day actually knowledge the Goddess Oshun.

Toothpaste
2 t Raw Coconut OiL 
2 t Baking Soda 
2 t Xylitol or to Taste
6 drops Organic Peppermint OiL
In a smallish plastic or glass tub that has a well fitting lid, mix all the ingredients with a teaspoon. There’s no need to melt the coconut oil first.
Keep on your bathroom shelf like normal toothpaste. Be aware that it will turn to a thick liquid if it’s warm, as coconut oil melts at a low temperature. This won’t affect your toothpaste at all, but you may have to pour the toothpaste on to your toothbrush!
Variations:
Add less baking soda if you are going to use this more than three times a week. It’s slightly abrasive and shouldn’t be brushed on teeth every day.
Replace the baking soda with good raw salt if preferred.
To help remineralise teeth: add calcium/magnesium/silica
Essential oils to add (experiment with doses for your particular issue)
For gingivitis: tea tree, clove, cinnamon, myrrh, thyme, chamomile, peppermint
For receeding gums: oregano, tea tree, peppermint, myrrh, neem
For sensitive teeth: lemon, myrrh, clove, sage
Tooth Health:
As well as switching to a non-fluoride natural toothpaste, you should always brush in-between your teeth. Use one of those little interdental toothbrushes, like a mini pipe cleaner. Flossing also works if you are gappy enough to be able to get it in there.
You can use 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide, ionic silver or a drop of tea tree oil in water as a mouthwash. All are effective at destroying bacteria.
If teeth are in a bad state, then please revise your diet. You will need lots of mineral rich greens, plus vitamins K2, D and A to make a permanent difference.
