BLACK AUGUST - Our Time!

Black August isn’t for just celebrating Ourstory, it also is for reflecting on it and using it to create solutions to our issues.  It is a month to focus specifically on all the New Afrikans in Ourstory that refused to be enslaved or unjustly imprisoned, or those that have lost their lives in the struggle for our humanity and historic figures and events who were birthed in the month of August.  Black August is a tribute to the New Afrikan Warrior Spirit expressed by Soledad Brother George Jackso

Originating from the efforts of Carter G. Woodson, whose landmark dissertation ' The Mis-Education of the Negro' challenged the social structure of American education.

However, the white supremacist orientation of the United States makes it impossible for Black History Month to have any significant impact in the education of the masses.

By BENJAMIN LEBRAVE

According to a 2012 Gallup International survey about religiosity and atheism, Ghana is one of the most religious countries in the world. At first glance, there is some evidence for this: when you land in Accra, you’ll notice churches everywhere you go. If you look even closer, you’ll see Mormon missionaries on their bikes throughout the country.

But are Ghanaians very relig

In April 1960, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, then led by Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., established the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee.  Ella Baker, at the suggestion of Dr. King, was the primary organizer (Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), 2013).  This student movement was one of a few Black Power organizations that changed its philosophy from being a civil rights organization, embracing the strategy of non-violence, to a Black Power organization th

In order to raise the consciousness of our African brothers and sisters, we must understand and apply the Akan concept of Sankofa, which means that in order to move forward we first have to take a step back. In other words, before we can be prepared for the future, we must comprehend the past. Therefore, here is a partial list of just some of the thousands of past (and present) inventions, patents, improvements, discoveries, creations, and innovations by and pertaining to

I recently saw a documentary of the Black Panther Party that aired at the E Street Cinema in Washington, DC.  It was the most compelling and accurate portrayal of the organization that I have seen.  Many have sought to demonize the young Black activists and their efforts have gone largely unrecognized.  The documentary is a collection of news clips and interviews with authentic voices. It puts to rest the contention that the Black Panther Party was a terrorist organization and/or a hate group. I

Often, when we discuss the African freedom struggles during the 1960s and 1970s, the discussion centers around the struggles, achievements, and people who were active in the Civil Rights Movement. During the same time, there were many other movements. One was the Black Power Movement. A number of leaders in that movement remain unsung heroes. In the following articles I will present twelve (12) African Americans Leaders in two parts. The first part will be a summary of their organization. The se

A Liberal Dose of Confusion

January 19, 2012

Raynard Jackson

 As America celebrated Martin Luther King Jr. ‘s birthday this week and is getting ready to celebrate Black History Month in February, I have reflected on the state of liberalism and its impact on the Black community and have concluded that I am very confused!

What am I confused about?  Before Obama’s election as president, no one thought we would ever see a Black person elected president because of racism.

Since Obama has been elected president, can one reasonably p

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
