From Afros To Shelltoes Presents

A Special Brew Of Sweet Tea Ethics 

How To Eat Chicken Wings, Battle Injustice, And Graduate On Time

Fueled by an uncanny mix of observational humor and candid social commentary, “How To Eat Chicken Wings, Battle Injustice, And Graduate On Time” transforms grandma’s folk tales, personal college experiences, and sobering life lessons into practical strategies for personal development and real world application.  Mixing the reasoning sessions of the local barbershop and fervor of street corner theologians, the inter-generational dialogue covers a wide range of topics including manhood, black love, bridging generation gaps, and the cross cultural appeal of hip hop. Far beyond canned speeches or lectures, award winning writer, counselor, educator, and activist Edward M. Garnes, Jr. , founder of From Afros To Shelltoes, shoots straight in his most personal speaking tour of all time.

Praise For From Afros To Shelltoes & Sweet Tea Ethics

“Here is the significance of my dear brother Ed Garnes, Jr. and Sweet Tea Ethics. There is no other group in Atlanta that can bring together such engaged, high quality, and substantial dialogue about the crucial issues facing not just the black community, but also American society. He writes well, works hard and revels in the life of the mind. Thank God for brother Ed Garnes, Jr.

Dr. Cornel West Professor of Philosophy and Christian Practice Union Theological Seminary

“Sweet Tea Ethics was a reveling in love, connection, purpose, and life.  It was an association and affiliation of like heartedness that will hopefully be a launching pad for good things to come.”

Clifton West Software Visionary/ Executive Producer

“There is no movement that epitomizes the thoughts, dreams, and disillusionment of my generation better than From Afros to Shelltoes (F.A.T.S). For every young Black person that’s closer to 30 than 25, too grown for 106 & Park, but still too young for the Tom Joyner crowd, F.A.T.S is our leading voice. With their exciting mix of wit, insight, and just plain old ‘real talk,’ F.A.T.S gives voice to a generation that wants to build on the future, while learning from the mistakes of the past. If my kids are reading about From Afros to Shelltoes in their history books in 20 years, I wouldn’t be surprised.

Phonte Coleman Grammy Nominated Writer, Vocalist, Producer Member of hip hop group Little Brother and soul collective The Foreign Exchange

“From Afros to Shelltoes shows that this generation is not lost, and we recognize we have a history. We understand that our cultural identity and survival is not determined solely on what we do now, but how that connects us with who have been and who we are becoming as a people.”

Jessica Care Moore Poet, Apollo Legend, Publisher Moore Black Press

“Sweet Tea Ethics is as culturally profound as the Japanese tea ceremonies because it goes back to traditions of how we were raised in the south. Ed Garnes’ writing, teaching, and community work with From Afros To Shelltoes is very relevant, very Hip-Hop, and a very important bridge from our past to today’s sensibilities. His brilliance is committed to the values of our people in the most warm and accessible manner.”
