    GLOBAL AFRICAN AND DIASPORA LEADERSHIP TELEFORUM

    in Education

    In an effort to build consensus across the Global African Diaspora around strategies for cooperating and coordinating, CFA collaborates with African Views to facilitate a conference call of Diaspora leaders in the Western Hemisphere, as part of the 2014 Ronald H. Brown African Affairs Series.  While time, distance and travel resources have proven to be significant obstacles in the coordination of Diaspora in support of Africa, this effort can bridge the gap, by holding the first of several conference calls of Diaspora leaders around the globe to open and strengthen dialogue. 


    Synopsis of intent:


    To formalize the platform where experts and professionals in Africa and Diaspora can collaborate with their immense intellect, expertise, skills, ideas and other resources necessary to develop and design the optimal solutions for bridging and amplifying the economic and scientific gaps between Africa and the rest of the world.



    Expected Outcome


    To form alliance of strength and interest between the Diaspora and Africa, as well as to cultivate a collaborative global communication platform for reliable and well guided intelligence committees that will liaise directly with institutional partners, essential state holders and sovereign authorities on African development issues.

    Blue Eyes on African American History

    in Politics

    Author Philip Reiss of Blue Eyes on African American History will be my guest on 12/7/14 @3pm EST.


    Our conversation will cover Philip's career and discussion about his book. We will also talk about the recent uprising in Ferguson Missourri and with Eric Garner.


    Until Bayard Rustin’s lecture in the fall of 1962, no other person had brought author Philip Reiss so far toward gaining an understanding of what it was like for African-Americans living as second-class citizens in this nation, which sponsors a pledge calling for “liberty and justice for all.”


    The Rustin lecture became Reiss’s point of departure on his quest to learn more fully of the African-American experience; it prompted him to become aware and to truly understand that the entire nation shared responsibility for the dilemma of deep-seated injustices that African-Americans constantly faced. In Blue Eyes on African-American History, Reiss provides an account of a white professor’s learning and teaching about African-American history from 1970 to 1999 at a SUNY community college.


    Reiss includes specifics of how and why he took on the challenge of teaching African-American history and discusses the historical events he deems critical for understanding of that history. His study relates the impact of economic exploitation facilitated by racism and how these twin evils are central to the African-American historical narrative.


    Along with factual history, this volume intersperses some of Resiss’s experiences as a young boy, as a young adult serving in the military, and as a professor teaching his course. It provides unique insight into a turbulent time in America.

    We need a new innovative progressive movement to stop the shooting's of unarmed African American Men. I also think it is time for  African American Men to have more leadership in the community besides being ministers and politicians. You can call a minister's and politician's office and they will not speak to you it will be some one else and all they care about is there democratic and republican corporate support and donation. The current system is not working for us because we are still getting shot down in the streets by white men and white police officers. Something has to change and the change starts tonight. We cannot rely on Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Ministers, Politicians, and African American Corporate leaders. It has to be the African American communities across the nation.
