    Black Thoughts and Theory: The Radio Show- Beyond Hidden Colors

    in Culture

    This Week's Episode: Beyond Hidden Colors


    Can you bank on all of the information that was put out by the Hidden Color movies? Well, let's find out.


    Like many of you, I enjoyed the Hidden Color documentaries. I found a renewed desire to learn more about my history, culture, and to speak more about such things with others. But, one thing that I noticed about this series, is that they got a few of their facts wrong.


    Join Alex Primo and Asha Zuri Thursday, November 26 at 9 pm EST(6 pm PST) as we dissect and examine Hidden Colors Part 1.

    That's right ... this week we will be talking about part one of the series and explaining that even though the movie is important to our people, it is also important to do your own research. Because no matter how much you trust someone or how smart they appear, they are still human. And that means they can still make mistakes.


    Don't forget, the brother Dennis Jefferson will be dropping by with his Healthy Matters Summary, to help improve your health.

    “No pedagogy which is truly liberating can remain distant from the oppressed by treating them as unfortunates and by presenting for their emulation models from among the oppressors. The oppressed must be their own example in the struggle for their redemption.” ? Paulo Freire, Pedagogy of the Oppressed
