There is an overarching stereotype about the absence of African men in family and community development. Some claim that African "Black" males have failed to protect their communities while some say African leaders are the ones failing to protect their societies. Is there some validity is this stereotype?
However, history portrays Africa as an organized society where males prided themselves in protecting their communities. This character trait dates as far back as pre-colonial days were men were more socio-politically visible than women and in some societies; even though they deferred some of the sociopolitical roles to women. In those societies, women were allowed to make decisions pertaining to women affairs, but in general, men played various roles as councilmen, elders, and as a matter of fact, as those responsible for guarding the living from the forces of evil.
How do character traits of today's men differ from those of our ancestors? What have we forgotten to remember? Is it good to remember and continue to observe the cultural legacy and behavioral commitments of the ancestors? Is it possible to combine the Afrocentric governance with those of our ancestors? From the look of things, corrupt governments, killings, etc., it appears black leaders have moved too far from the good traditional practices of their ancestors. If this is the case, then who protects black communities? Should those good traditional protective roles be abandoned? Will electoral processes work in black communities, particularly, in Africa? Where do we go from here?

TONIGHT: Listen to The African History Network Show, Thurs., March, 19th, 8:00pm-10:00pm EST (5:00am-7:00pm PST) with host Michael Imhotep. We’ll also discuss “Should African Americans Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day”. Call in with your Questions/Comments at 914-338-1375.
Around this time of the year you will see St. Patrick’s Day Parades, Kiss Me I’m Irish T-Shirts, Green Beer, Leprechauns, etc. It is expected that 127 million Americans will spend approximately $4.6 Billion during this St. Patrick’s Day holiday. One of the strangest things you will see is African Americans participating in this “celebration”. Do you really know what you are celebrating? Have you studied the history of St. Patrick’s Day? Even if you claim that you have Irish Ancestry do you really know what you are celebrating?
Did you know that Patrick was not Irish he was British? Why do we participate in celebrations without knowing what we are participating in? If you wear Green on St. Patrick’s Day, will you wear Red, Black & Green on African Liberation Day? If not, why not? I’m pretty sure you have more African Ancestry than Irish Ancestry.

This forum is in three parts. Each part is scheduled for one hour. The first part will address the challenges faced by the African Press in doing our work domestically and internationally. Part two, will validate the challenges as legitimate problems because some of our colleagues are often just ranting or confused and in some cases prosecuted for publishing false or defamatory information. Part three will provide us with opportunity to offer our views and ideas on ways and means of strengthening the status of the African press in domestically and around the world.
