Tonight we are going to discuss the 1st International "Straight Black Pride Movement (SBPM)."
What does the word pride mean to you? Do you support black businesses if so which ones and are you sure they are black owned? If you wanted to take your Queen out to dinner or take your family out to eat do you ever think to take them to an African restaurant or an Jamaican restaurant? For those of you that have kids how important is it to have black books that are written by blacks for them to read such as the black children books? Are we to eat meat if not where did that come from? What foods are we to eat and are we eating such as the Africans? Are we using products out of the store that are filled with chemicals for our skin and hair? How can we claim African pride if we don't know what it means to be an African? Name 5 things that you do on a day to day basis that would classify yourself as an African? Vibe with us to find out.
