Many of us bare practitioners anxiously welcome the beginning of daylight savings time, no matter where we live. It afford us, at least, an extra hour of daylight, or more, for as long as it endures. This additional natural lighting permits us more time to roam throughout without having to wear clothing! Not that we require the daylight in order to enjoy our being naked, but daylight savings time (DST) does permit us a longer period of natural (outdoor) fun and freedom!
The purpose of this posting is to share images of same gender loving (bisexual or gay) African-American men featuring their appreciation of the bare practitioner lifestyle. ReNude Pride is focused on both bisexual and gay men and nudity, so this is an appropriate occasion to honor those men and celebrate our similarities in our lifestyles!
What is today observed as Black History Month in the USA had a very limited and a very inauspicious beginning. It began in 1926 when Carter G. Woodson, an African-American historian and the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History designated the second week of the month of February as “Negro History Week.” This week was chosen because it generally coincided with Abraham Lincoln’s birthday on February 12 and of Frederick Douglass’ birthday on February 14. Both dates were celebrated in Black communities since the late 19th century.
Today is the official celebration of the birthday of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. – an internationally recognized pacifist, civil rights activist and a noteworthy humanitarian.

He is also a respected leader in the movement for racial equality.
This month, almost exactly the same day, President Barack Obama was retired from his office as chief executive of the United States. After eight years as this country’s leader, his term limit of eight years (two four-year terms) was officially over. Funny, but his length of service seemed to have flown by beyond the speed of light. Of course, we all know too much about the fool who replaced him.
Today is Friday the 13th day of this month! For a number of the early years of my life, my identical twin brother, Alex, and myself were terrified whenever the 13th fell on a Friday. For a long time we somehow assumed the dread of many others and believed that the worst fate always occurred when this happened. There were simply no reasons to believe anything different.

Today, December 7, is known as Pearl Harbor Day in the U.S. On this date, in 1941, the Japaneses attacked the Pacific Ocean fleet at the Pearl Harbor Naval base in the Hawaiian Islands. This early morning bombing mission, unprovoked and without any warning, led to this country entering into World War II. The photograph above shows the memorial above where the USS Arizona sank on that day.
