New Orleans - Education for the African Village
In the wake of Hurrican Katrina and the issues heaped upon the city of New Orleans there lies a movement ventered around a place called the "Black Star Cafe". In this segment we speak to Baakir Tyehimba.
Baakir is better known for the work that he's done creating recreation spaces for children in Algiers point (http://youtu.be/6JdAqVSdp1U).
Baakir is in the process of estahlishing what he calls a "Little Africa" in the midst of Algiers point. In this space he will establish street names and outlets that will reflect the Afrakan culture that he pivots his work upon.
PLEASE SUPPORT OUR EFFORTS!
As promised, this is the corrected & fused together, proper rendering of this show.
A few months ago, the annual SANKOFA CONFERENCE, celebrated 25 years of uncompromising Afrikan Centeredness. I have been lucky to attend about 14 of these.
Today, we shall share the lead article by the Creators of the conference, Baba Agyei & Mama Akua Akoto entitled
A NARROW AND WELL WORN ROAD: EKWAN OBININI (eh-kwan Oh-bee-nee-nee),
where they reflect on their own 30-plus organizational experience--where they have been & where they still have to go. Ideally other SERIOUS groups are to use this model to guage their own development and adjust accordingly...and if not, they should go away quietly.
Brother Kamau of Bolekaja Enterprises and Afrika's Reascention will share the lead article by the Creators of the Sankofa conference, Baba Agyei & Mama Akua Akoto entitled A NARROW AND WELL WORN ROAD: EKWAN OBININI (eh-kwan Oh-bee-nee-nee),

If I had a subtitle for tonight's show, it would be called; "The Blueprint." Tonight's guest Karen Fain, Owner of Fainmous Barbeque located on Houston's Southeast side has uncovered some Powerful information about Houston's African American Community. She has uncovered at the Library of Congress; "The Red Book of Houston" which was published in 1915. The Red Book of Houston is a Compendium of Social, Professional, Religious, Educational, and Industrial interest of Houston's Colored Population. How much do you know about the African American population of your city? For far too long we have been taught to look forward. We have been taught to look to the Government. We have been manipulated through images and scripts derived from media. It is time to look back at the Blueprint for success! There is nothing to create. Our ancestors wrote the Blueprint. It is already there for us... Also tonight as we promote Black Business, we have with us Sister Akwete Tyehimba owner of the Pan-African Connection Bookstore located in Dallas, TX. This, is Black Wall Street. www.panafricanconnection.com www.fainmousbbq.com

On this episode of "Soul of Black Folk," Brother Agyei speaks with Ohio State University professor Dr. Leslie Alexander.
An associate professor of history and advocate of Africana Studies, Dr. Alexander wrote "African or American?: Black Identity and Political Activism in New York City, 1784-1861." In the spring of 2010, "African or American" was awarded the Cheikh Anta Diop award for Outstanding Scholarship in the field of Africana Studies by the National Council for Black Studies. She is also the co-editor of "'We Shall Independent Be:' African American Place-Making and the Struggle to Claim Space in the United States" and the "Encyclopedia of African American History." Most recently, she published "The Black Republic: The Influence of the Haitian Revolution on Black Political Consciousness, 1817-1861," which appears in African Americans and the Haitian Revolution: Selected Essays and Historical Documents.
Join us as we discuss the role and importance of Black Studies and Black intellectuals, Dr. Alexander's research, and several other topics.
