    Black Thoughts and Theory:The Radio Show - The Great Empire of Mali

    in Culture

    This week we will explore the Empire of Mali and the Super Wealthy Mansa Musa. A brother that was so heavily weighed down by gold, that he "crashed" the gold market in Egypt in one visit. 

    Join Asha Zuri  and Alex Primo this Thursday at 9 pm EST as we discuss the Great Empire of Mali that once covered an area larger than western Europe and consisted of numerous vassal kingdoms and provinces.

    Because the Empire was strategically located between the West African gold mines and the agriculturally rich Niger River floodplain it was poised to become a major power in the region and beyond. 

    In addition to the vast wealth of the Malian Empire, education and order were also hallmarks of the day. Visitors were well aware of the organized and orderly rule of the Emperors of Mali. And surely, we are all aware of the books that came from Timbuktu.  Timbuktu was a magnet that attracted both men of learning and men of commerce. Believe it or not, despite the gold, salt and other valuables to be traded in Mali, books were reported as the hottest commodity in Timbuktu. 

    Call in to talk with the hosts at:

    (917)889-2830(Thursday 9-11 pm ONLY)


    Log on and listen.

    And remember, keep it clean and keep it on point. #One

    C.D. - ISIS, Syria and How far Am I My Brother's Keeper?

    in Islam

    As-Salaam-Alaikum (God's Peace be upon You)!

    This Saturday, November 21, 2015, Critical Discourse will cover the ever-unfolding events that have captured the attention, fear and yet, determination of the public, to maintain a sense of normalcy and charity.

    In wake of the attacks in Paris, the U.S. Congress voted to greatly restrict and regulate the influx of Syrian refugees. To the shock of many, enough democrats voted with republicans, to deny Barack Obama the veto power he'd promised to weld.

    With emotions still raw, the very fibesr of human compassion and drive for self-preservation are being tested.

    Are the governors, who vowed to pointedly refuse any additional entries of Syrian refugees into their states, guilty of hard-heartedness? 

    Why should an entire group be judged so harshly, based on the depraved acts of a few?

    Are those governors who have promised to allow the refugees, careless and naively optimistic that there are no plausible threats?

    What of the future relationship between American Muslims and the general public? Will Muslims be looked upon with greater suspicion?

    Given the range of reaction and comments from presidential candidates, how will these recent events (including Mali), affect the outcome of the 2016 presidential election?

    Join us, to review these issues and more, right on your favorite talk-show (am I being a bit pretentious?) - Critical Discourse!
