Host: Samiyyah Saafir-Muhammad
Guests: Shamir and Chaava Muhammad of The Black Agricultural Survival Expo (B.A.S.E.)
Shamir Muhammad has been growing and planting since the age of six. At thirteen, Shamir was introduced to horticulture by Jill Barrett of the Knox Parks Foundation. This would be the beginning of his formal training in agriculture and horticulture.
In October 2010, Shamir was introduced to Will Allen by way of Dr. Alim Muhammad through a workshop presentation. In that workshop, Shamir was reconnected to his first love, agriculture. He also knew at that moment that he not only wanted to be a farmer, but a scientist - a supreme god of agriculture. From that day in October 2010, Shamir works sleeps, and breathes agriculture. His sole purpose is to help The Hon. Min. Louis Farrakhan build an Agricultural Dynasty to end poverty and want.
Chaava Muhammad, an event, promotions, and marketing coordinator of Dress The Garden, is a native of Brooklyn, NY. After taking the journey to Tuskegee, Alabama for the 18th anniversary of the Million Man March, Chaava teamed up with her husband Shamir, to form B.A.S.E. (Black Agriculture Survival Expo), which aims in helping the black nation recognize the importance of beginning to do for self. B.A.S.E. is a platform where black farmers, manufacturers, distributors, students, educators and consumers are able to meet to study, teach, train, learn, present ideas, products, and services that relate to agribusiness and ensure the survival and success of black national life.

Please join us Sunday 10AM CST/11AM EST as we discuss negative, racist black stereotypes and the people who perpetuate them.
We will discuss the brilliant article written by Raina in depth.
Why is it acceptable in the secular community when negative stereotypes and caricatures of the black community (religious and otherwise) are presented to them?
Is it acceptable if black atheists perpetuate the stereotypes while attempting to pathologize the community that they claim that they want to help?
Is speaking at all white conferences considered activism nowadays?
Are black atheists silence on issues of racism, social justice, sexism, etc. being purchased with the promises of speaking engagements, etc.?
This and more on Sunday.

There are tons of discussions about feminism but very few black people actually know what it is about. Most have never read a book about it or even understand its history. The word itself has been used as a weapon against black women as a way of insulting them and making them feel as if they are not loyal to the race if they define themselves as feminists. The images of a group of anti male, masculine type, women who are all lesbians, springs to mind whenever the word feminism is brought up. Black women especially, have been conditioned to believe that the mythology around the word feminism makes it something they should refuse to be associated with. They havve bought into the stigmatization of the word itself, wtihout ever having even read one book about it. Black males are even worse, as they will continue to spread lies about this area of activism and any correct information about it is immediately dismissed as being "anti-black". This episode will explore the history of black feminism, how it came about, what it really is and why there is a fear of it. It will serve to inform and dispel the myths associated with black feminism and give one an insight into why it is more vital than ever to ensure that black women and men work to further its aims.

This is part two of a series.The scandal involving Bill Cosby and the rape allegations, is a major topic on the web as of late. The responses have ranged from full support of him, to people wanting his head on a stake. However what is often overlooked is the impact that these discussions are having on the victims of rape and how the ridiculing of the women involved, is ultimately going to prevent even more rape victims from telling what happened to them. The black community has a variety of views and a major one is why the women didn't come forward sooner. In fact, many have gone so far as to saying that the women involved in these allegations are all involved in some grand media conspiracy to "bring the black man down". We will discuss and explore the many aspects of this case, the responses from the black community and the historical norms behind those responses. Please feel free to call in and share your views and remember to follow Progressive Black Thinkers Radio by clicking on the tab.
