Be sure to join us for another broadcast of George Jackson University radio, Wednesday Night at 8est/7cst, 2/17/2016 with our special guest Rev. Dr. Nikitah Okembe-RA Imani, Professor in the Department of Black Studies at the University of Nebraska-Omaha.  Dr. Nikitah Imani is also Chair of the UNO Department of Black Studies.  With regard to research, his publications and work has been in the areas of Pan-African studies.  He has published two major books Mbongi and Kinzonzi (both Reapalife, 2004). Mbongi is a theoretical formulation of how Africana peoples throughout the diaspora, but particularly in the United States, might go about creating organic, local political institutions that would more effective represent the communal will and serve as a springboard for domestic development. The caveat is that this formulation is specifically focused on African traditional models of political organization, the referent case being the institutions of the ancient Bantu in the southern regions of the Motherland. Kinzonzi is similarly grounded, but focused on the creation of communitarian mediation institutions for local dispute resolution. His third book, out in 2011 was a project with University Press of America on Eurocentric psychotherapy and its neocolonialist implications based upon his NSF funded dissertation work and was entitled Head Games. Dr. Imani recently received an Africana studies grant to work on a series of other book manuscripts on Africentric classical mathematics and its connection to then-contemporaneous worldviews.  Dr. Imani published a chapter in Color Behind Bars: Racism in the U.S. Prison System. “The Incarcerative Mentality of Eurocentrism: Prisoner Identification and Jailing the Imperfect Body,”   LET US TALK TO THIS MAN!  THINK STRATEGY!  Call in number 347 8267332 or listen online at www.blogtalkradio.com/georgejacksonradio
