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.

Today, we meet with Chioma Oruh, a political scientist and activist, Ph.D. candidate, mother of 2 and sacred sexual healer. Here's what she'll be discussing with us:
"The past 500 years of maafa, colonialism and now neo-colonialism has been a true test of African masculinity. Traditionally and indigenously, the vast majority of pre-colonial African societies were matriarchal, Yet these mother-centric cultures co-existed with egalitarian and cooperative patriarchies that did not result in the abuse or oppression of the women, yet upheld the power of masculinity. Having experienced such traumatic experiences of the past 500 years has given a severe blow to Black masculinity as it is evident that they were unable to defeat the blows of white supremacy and capitalism. There are many social ways this defeat plays out in our lives and relationships. This program will explore those ways."

Deardra Shuler talks to Rev. Dennis Dillion about Freedom 2013: Emancipation Proclamation 150th Celebration. The Emancipation Proclamation called for the abolishment of slavery and was by far one of the most defining moments in American history. Signed into order September 22, 1862, by President Abraham Lincoln the document freed African and mixed race slaves. It also provided liberties for them to defend themselves and join the military. History has shown freedom came at a high price. 150 years later, African Americans still contend with racial profiling, unbalanced scales of wealth, escalating foreclosures that cripple communities while ushering in gentrification. A new paradigm is needed to tip the scales towards equality and inclusion.
In honor of the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, the Freedom 2013 Conference will celebrate the historic moment with an all-day symposium, rally and gospel concert featuring Tamela Mann.
The event is spearheaded by Rev. Dennis Dillon, publisher of the New York Christian Times. A visionary and chief researcher behind the ground breaking New York Economic State of Black New York, in partnership with Dr. Johnny Ray Youngblood, national civic leader, chief architect of The Maafa and pastor of Mt. Pisgah Baptist Church, as well as over 100 convening clergy, takes place Wednesday, June 19, at The Riverside Baptist Church, 490 Riverside Drive, in Harlem.
Freedom 2013 will commemorate this historical moment with a time-lined exhibition tracing the journey from Africa through slavery leading up to the emancipation and from the emancipation to present. There will also be an Emancipation Awards Luncheon honoring those unsung heroes, shereos (some posthumously), and institutions that have played a significant role towards the passage of the signing of the emancipation.
Today, was the Kermit Gosnell case the tip of the iceberg of abortion clinic abuse? Listen in as we discuss the responses to the trial from the heads of the abortion business in America, and what they really mean for the future safety of pregnant women.
Plus, an abortion mill in Charlotte, NC struggles to stay open after being shut down for unsanitary and filthy conditions and practices. Melissa will tell us how this facility has managed to evade the law and remain open.
PLFR also welcomes Mark Crutcher from Life Dynamics, Inc. A few days ago, Life Dynamics, the producer of the documentary film Maafa 21: Black Genocide in 21st Century America, released video testimony from three abortion clinic workers who spoke out about the many abuses of women in Douglas Karpen's late-term abortion mill and the many illegal murders of infants born alive. Their eyewitness accounts of multiple incidents of dangerous and unsafe practices comes on the heels of the Gosnell trial. Mark will be detailing for us what the impact of this video should be.
Please join Black motherhood Empowerment host Denise Bolds and special guest Angela Freeman, author of: "God's Gift: How to be a Good Black Woman to a Strong Black Man."
God's Gift introduces the common sense skills that women must begin to practice in order to elevate the Black community by ending the gender war.
"To Be An Afrikan Woman is to pick up the pieces of our Maafa-shattered lives and to make our people whole again." Marimba Ani "To Be Afrikan"
Gender warfare has brought the Black Community to an all-time low, leaving no option but to rise up. However, we will not elevate until we find balance. God's Gift explains how to become extraordinary women capable of creating an immediate change in our families and society.
There has been a systematic plot to sabotage our relationships. Feminist and misogynistic attitudes have destroyed our families, our stability, and our happiness. Our very existence is at stake.
God's Gift provides the solution. As Black Women, we must realize viewing our complements and only suitable mates (Black Men) as our enemies and competing with them will lead to our extinction. Victory lies in cooperation and unity. We are in this together.
