    The C.O.W.S. w/ Fela Kuti

    in Education


    In 1975, Fela de-anglicized the family name...



    With his song 'Why Blackman Dey Suffer' Fela declared his political manifesto based on the ideology of Blackism and Nkrumahism. He called for black people to shed their [White Supremacist] mentalities, adopt our own authentic culture, STOP COPYING WHITE PEOPLE and to come together as one continent under one government. He continued to fire at [White Supremacist] complexes: 'Mr Follow Follow', 'Yellow Fever', 'Johny Just Drop' and 'Opposite People'. He exhorts African values in 'Buy Africa' and 'Africa Centre of the World'.



    Majemite Jaboro visits The Context of White Supremacy. We'll discuss his book, The Ikoyi Prison Narratives: The Spiritualism and Political Philosophy of Fela Kuti. As we explore the life and art of Fela Kuti, keep in mind that it was recently reported that Beyoncé's inspiration for dawning blackface was Fela.
