For as long as I can remember, I have had an intense interest in my paternal grandfather. You know the drill, who he was, what was he about, how was he raised, etc. Fundamentally, the reason was that he had died in 1938, which was approximately twenty years before I was born, and when his oldest child (my father) was ten years old. Although I was consciously curious about his life by the time I was seventeen, and began to inquire into his biological roots and the origin of his surname, I met wit
Cameroon is at the Crossroadof West and Central Africa. Travelling through Cameroon is like discoverying all the African continent. She streches from her southern flank which faces the Atlantic Ocean through the Gulf of Guinea right to Lake Chad. Cameroon is a melting pot of people and civilizations and possesses a diversified range of tourist attractions. It should be said that Cameroon is naturally endowed in this regard from the white or black sandy beaches on the Atlantic coast, the thick ra
2. Its secuity(Cameroon is a politically stable country since many decades with a warm and welcoming population).
3. It hosts some of the most amazing and ancient cultures like the Baka and Badgeli pygmies in the Eastern jungle, the nomadic Mbororos on the Adamawa and North Regions, the animist Komas in the Alantika Mountains, but also Bantues, Kom and many more.
Interestingly, a controversy and confusion stills reigns within the Black community (and within other progressive circles) over the annual celebration of African Liberation Day and its connection to more than the anti-apartheid struggle and other forms of militant protest. I wrote an article during May, 2010, that is repeated below in a slightly up-dated version, to clarify the situation. Since that confusion still exists among too many of us
The Saturday before Memorial Day, is the kick off for Dance Africa, when Baba Chuck Davis, founder of the African American Dance Ensemble, and his troupe land in Brooklyn to regale us with his latest gathering of talent from Africa and her Diaspora. And this week end was absolutely spectacular.
Davis who stands tall at 6’5” presided over the event from the sidelines, while locally based community groups presented their youth, attired in African regalia, dancing their hear
According to O'Guin, Allen and Semenik in their book Advertising and Intergrated Brand Promotion, the new world of advertising is full of companies who are looking for new ways to get their brand across to audience and potential consumers. In this seemingly ad cluttered environment, small businesses are caught in the struggle between big corporation on how to make their brand visible and recognizable, send out culturally relevant in a refreshing way and become top-on-the-minds of audience and poRead more…Chicago-Midwest
As was discussed in earlier engagements with Pan Africanism, Pan Africanism’s purpose is the formation of a United States of Africa and for greater co-operation between the different peoples of the African Diaspora to be achieved. It is a dynamic political philosophy in the words of George Padmore designed to achieve social justice and human equality. In order to gain a deeper understanding of Pan Africanism, it is important to engage with its many sub-categories that have developed throughout
Obama Brings International State Terrorism to Ghana
Written by Sekou Nkrumah, Chairman of the Pan African Improvement Organization. He has written two books,
"Repatriation and Pan Africanism, the Suppression of Two Movements" and "Notes on White Supremacy and Capitalism."
Unfortunately many Ghanaians are being deceived by Barack Obama's presidency and his scheduled tour to Ghana. Many Ghanaians think that Obama will be coming to help develop the country, provide money or establish friendly relationshi
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. (father of the former Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court with the same name) once stated, “A mind that is stretched to a new idea never returns to its original dimensions.”
I think the sooner African leaders come to understand this, the better off the continent will be. Everytime I meet with African leaders, they always complain about how Africa is portrayed in the U.S. media. But yet, they never seem to understand the need to have

Never has the Black population in the United States been as diverse as it is today.
If Global Africa means people of African ancestry all over the world, the Black population of the United States is a microcosm of Global Africa. Today, this Black population includes people from literally every Black country in the world: from every member of the African Union, Organisation of American States and from other parts of the Black world as well.

September 24, 2009Raynard JacksonIs it finally time for a United States of Africa (U.S.A.) to emerge? Without question, I think the time is right.But, it’s about time also. I was once in Africa meeting with the president of a country and he basically said his “house was on fire.” So, I said to this president that I had the water that could extinguish the fire. His response? “I will let you know when I want the water.”This has been a common experience with me in my dealings on the continent. Afri
