Hi everyone! I'll have a special guest on the show. Have you ever heard of MAAFA? MAAFA is Kiswahili word describing calamity or disaster as it refers to the period in world history known as the Middle Passage or Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade. My guest will be Dr. Anthony L. Bennett,Senior Pastor. He'll be on the show. Dr.Bennett will discuss this period in history. How this period in time still affects African Americans in the community,family structure,self esteem and more. You have to know your past in order to know your future. So join me in this interesting discussion on history. Let's Talk!!
The title comes from the Swahili term "Maafa", which means "tragedy" or "disaster", and is used to describe the centuries of oppression and diaspora resulting from slavery. "21" refers to the 'maafa' of the 21st century.We wdiscuss some of Planned Parenthood's origins (formerly the American Birth Control League), attributing to it a "150-year-old goal of exterminating the black population." Abortion is the #1 killer of black people in America, and that, in 2004, abortion killed 2.8 times as many black people than HIV/AIDS, gang violence, accidents, cancer, and heart disease, combined.
Were the numbers of the TransAtlantic slave trade a lie? How many Africans came to America as slaves? How many blacks were already in America beofre the slave trade? How many were freemen? Was the wholesale enslavement of African people a world-wide plan?
"The Indian slave trade in the Carolinas, with these southern ports as their centers, rapidly took on all of the characteristics of the African slave trade.” Patrick Neal Minges in his 1999 essay for West Virginia University: all my Slaves, whether Negroes, Indians, Mustees, Or Molattoes.' Towards a Thick Description of Slave Religion.'

Many enslaved Africans were brought to this country in chains and built America by the sweat of our brow making the foundation of prosperity, but writer and researcher Marsha Stewart-Sanders says, "In addition, millions of African people lived peacefully and intermarried with the indigenous people of America thousands of years before Columbus, Vespucci and all the European invaders."
Are we the original Toltecs, Olmecs, Inca, Maya and Aztecs?

Pam Africa is the head of International Concerned Friends and Family of Mumia Abu-Jamal, the Philadelphia-based organization at the center of the international movement seeking Abu-Jamal’s release. She and Ramona Africa are also members and survivors of the MOVE Maafa.
Africa is the dynamo whom most Philadelphia police, prosecutors, politicians and many pastors love to hate because of her strident advocacy on behalf of imprisoned journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal and MOVE members sentenced for a fatal 1978 shootout.
While winning freedom for Abu-Jamal and the MOVE Nine is a definitive focus of Pam Africa’s advocacy, she is frequently found on “front lines” nationwide fighting for ending mistreatment of people regardless of their color and creed.
“Pam Africa is in each and every struggle for social justice in Philadelphia, the U.S. and abroad. It’s not just Mumia,” said activist/writer Berta Joubert-Ceci while chairing a program in West Philadelphia a few weeks ago.
During that West Philly program Africa received praise from another warrior for right, former U.S. representative Cynthia McKinney, whose praise also highlighted Africa’s often overlooked soft side.
McKinney proudly displayed a stylish African-themed jacket Africa had given her as a present that evening, a garment McKinney had complimented Africa for wearing at an event in Atlanta that McKinney attended.
I am deeply honored that she has consented to be a guest on my show. Mama will give her views on public education and much more I am sure. Don't miss out. Call in and check in!!

Host Amen Menethoupe. The Neter Sesen Book VIII Verse V to VII:
5. Seek one that may lead you by the hand, and conduct you to the door of Truth and Knowledge, where the clear Light is that is pure from Darkness, where there is not one drunken, but all are sober and in their heart look up to him, whose pleasure it is to be seen.
6. For he cannot be heard with ears, nor seen with eyes, nor expressed in words; but only in mind and heart.
7. But first thou must tear to pieces and break through the garment thou wears; the web of Ignorance, the foundation of all Mischief; the bond of Corruption; the dark Covertures; the living Death ; the sensible carcass, the tomb, carried about
with us; the domestic thief which in what he loves us, hates us, envies us.
