About

Meserette Kentake

“Don’t let our history die.” ~Edward Scobie

Kentake Page is a Pan-Afrikan Black history blog that celebrates the diversity of the Afrikan historical experience both on the continent and in the diaspora. Kentake Page is also a celebration and appreciation of Black authors and artists. The vision is to bring together history, literature, and art under one cyber-umbrella, to make Black/Afrikan historical, literary, and artistic achievements universally accessible.


Meserette Kentake’s statement:

Kentake Page is my spiritual contribution to the world. Hence, the reason there are no adverts on this website. If you would like to contribute financially (donate) or be a sponsor of the blog, please contact me at meserette@kentakepage.com.

Kentake Page is in honor of the Honorable Marcus Mosiah Garvey, who was my great-grandmother’s cousin. It is also a praise song to the Ancestors, who crossed the Atlantic and suffered during the Time of Sorrow (The Maafa/Atlantic Slavery).


“Captured, chained, sold,
My soul lament because it wants to know
the identity of she
who was captured in Afrika
and taken to the Americas
and is the root of my family tree
The identity of she
the mother of all my mothers
until there was me.
But there is no one to tell me
because nobody knows…”

~Meserette Kentake


The Ancestors:

“They are the mystery that envelopes our dream.
They are the power that shall unite us.
They are the strange truth of the earth.
They came from the womb of the universe…”

–“In Praise of the Ancestors,” by Mazisi Kunene
