I created this thread in honor of all those who have gone before us and now walk with the ancestors and rest with the most high. You may honor a loved one or fallen soldier here. As many of you may know or not know today is marks 42 years since the assassination of our dear brothers Fred Hampton and Mark Clark of the Black Panther Party for Self Defense when the Chicago Police Department raided their headquarters at 4:30 am and murdered Fred Hampton in his sleep. He was 21 years old. We them him up in honor and memory as they will live forever that way we thank them for their dedication and steadfastness to the black cause. Ashe'

Hampton was born on August 30, 1948, in Chicago, Illinois and grew up in Maywood, a suburb to the west of the city. His parents had moved north from Louisiana, and both worked at the Argo Starch Company. As a youth, Hampton was gifted both in the classroom and on the athletic field, having a strong desire to play center field for the New York Yankees, and graduating from Proviso East High School with honors in 1966.
Following his graduation Hampton enrolled at Triton Junior College in nearby River Grove, Illinois, majoring in pre-law. He studied law to become more familiar with the law, using it as a defense against police. He and fellow Black Panthers would follow police, watching out for police brutality using this knowledge of law as a defense. He also became active in the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), assuming leadership of the Youth Council of the organization's West Suburban Branch. In his capacity as an NAACP youth organizer, Hampton began to show signs of his natural leadership abilities; from a community of 27,000, he was able to muster a youth group 500-members strong. He worked to get more and better recreational facilities established in the neighborhoods, and to improve educational resources for Maywood's impoverished black community. Through his involvement with the NAACP, Hampton hoped to achieve social change through nonviolent activism and community organizing.[2]

Mark Clark was born on June 28, 1947, in Peoria, Illinois, to Elder William Clark and Fannie Bardley Clark. He became active in the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) at an early age and joined in demonstrating against discrimination in employment, housing and education.[1] According to John Gwynn, former President of state and local chapters of the NAACP, Mark Clark and his brothers played a major part in keeping other teenagers in line. "He could call for order when older persons or adults could not," he said of Clark in a December 1969 interview with the Chicago Tribune. [2] In that same Chicago Tribune article, family members are quoted as saying Mark Clark enjoyed reading and art and was good at drawing portraits. He attended Manual High School and Illinois Central Junior College in Peoria.

In the religion we call Isese, not only is it customary to pour libation on the ground but small particles of food as well. In the odu ifa Ikadii we say:

Kalankadii
Agagaiga
Ojo nla ni takiti leyin abuke
A difa fun ile
Ti seru akora barapetu
A difa fun Orunmila
Baba ji baba ri fomi oju sogbere ire

Kalankadii
Agagaiga
Cast Ifa for ile
Who was the first aid of Barapetu
Ifa revelation to Orunmila
When he woke up with thirst for good things

A-je kolounje o to je
Ile tire re e o
A mu kolomi o to mu

Ile, here is your portion
you who eat before the owner of the food eats
Ile, here is your portion
You who drinks before the owner of the water drinks.

Ase ase O ase!

Yes it is. You'll find that most indigenous cultures offer food and drink to departed loved ones
