    The Unmasking of Okokon Udo: For Anyone Who Has Ever Lost Their Voice

    in Culture

    This is the story of the evolution into the person who is Okokon Udo. It is a story about the pain, the struggle and the triumph he has gone through. In that context, it mirrors the story of everyone who has ever lost their voice, been spoken for or been marginalized by another person or group.


    During his show, the Unmasking of Okokon Udo, he takes you a long on my personal, painful and yet freeing story: the story of a Nigerian man, living in America and discovering himself, his history and his core through deep process work.


    This work is the expression of his emergence from the rubble of internalized oppression  into the person, man and global citizen that he is today.

    Yardie Skeptics (s.2, ep.11) Marginalized man or male privilege?

    in Education

     


    "You see man made the cars
    To take us over the road
    Man made the train
    To carry the heavy load
    Man made the electric light
    To take us out of the dark
    Man made the boat for the water
    Like Noah made the ark"

    - James Brown, "It's a Man's World" 

    Well, so what? Is this really a man's world? Is there something inherently unique about masculinity which promotes innovation in science, technology, and commerce or was it because the "other gender" was strategically excluded from such opportunities? Is there a gender specific role for men in society, and if so, who determines this? Are men now truthfully experiencing a systemic institutionalized marginalization or is this charge of marginalization pointless bellyaching as society moves towards gender equality? 

    The Yardie Skeptics will be continuing their month long examination of masculinity this Sunday, June 8th at 12:30pm EDT (11:30am Jamaica time) as we ask the question, is it a man's world? Tune in and be a part of this timely and relevant discussion!

    Oral Traditions

    in News

    This Sunday our BlogTalk radio program will cover the importance of carrying on oral tradition, and introduce our listeners to  our WnT YouTube Channel. Join Billie Fidlin, president of WnT and Millie Chalk, member of the Board of Directors and part of the YouTube Channel team.


    Oral tradition is the spoken relation and preservation, from one generation to the next, of a people's cultural history and ancestry, often by a storyteller in narrative form.


    Oral tradition is cultural material and tradition transmitted orally from one generation to another. The messages or testimony are verbally transmitted in speech or song and may take the form, for example, of folktales, sayings, ballads, songs, or chants. In this way, it is possible for a society to transmit oral history, oral literature, oral law and other knowledge across generations without a writing system. It often refers to the transmission of cultural material through vocal utterance. WnT has brought some of the oral tradition to life in written format through our online magazine and by then sharing a oral recording of some of those stories on our YouTube https://www.youtube.com/user/WhispernThunder


    The historical marginalization of indigenous people, the dogma of stigma, the continued oppression of an entire race of people to the political and social edges of society cannot and must not continue. Telling the story begins the healing. Telling the story also begins the true understanding of a history of both tragedy and triumph.

    Mwamba World Outreach School Of Ministry/ Studies In The Book Of Mark.

    in Radio

    HUMAN SIN AND NEED :


    1.  The Mission of Jesus is to proclaim in word  and deed the coming of God' Kingdom.  the establishment of God's Rule is seen as the overcoming and defeat of Satan, resulting in the deliverance of those he has held captive. whether through demon possession, illness or sin, or through social marginalization resulting from the misuse of Power.


    2.  It thrusts Jesus into opposition against those whose activities contribute to an unjust and noncompassionate society.  he speaks out strongly condemning the leaders in Jewish society for failing to care for the people.


    3.  The Message Of Jesus and discipleship : In Mark, the proclamation of the kingdom of god is characterized as gospel or good news.  it brings healing to the ill and the disabled, delivers people from Satan and the demons and offers forgiveness to sinners.


    4.  it also leads to a fresh statement on how life should be lived. Response to it is understood in terms of repentance and faith, but most weight is placed on discipleship as personal, active, self-denying commitment to Jesus and the gospel.  


    5.  The terms "eternal life" and "being saved" are also employed to signify the benefits that come to those who are disciples.


    6.  Essentially the same picture is presented in Matthew, but the nature of the new life is spelled out in greater detail, and there is fuller recognition that a new community life will develop among followers of Jesus.


    7.  In Luke, there is more emphasis on salvation and the benefits of discipleship, sufficiently so to justify the view that this is a major motif for him.

    I was just thinking....where are all the black revolutionaries?

    in Education

    What is the importance Black culture and the Black experience in continuing revolutionary attitudes and tactics?


    With the rise in continued institutional racism and marginalization of African-Americans and the reversal of many of the strides we made during  the Black Civil Rights movement, we find ourselves without the strength to nuture and raise future revoultuoinaries that will continue the struggle.


    With the obliteration of affirmative action, the voting right act challenges, deleting ethnic studies in the colleges and university systems in California where the Black Panther Party and the black power movement cut its teeth, where are we headed?


    Along with the loss many of the pioneers of the black power movement... I asked myself; where are all our black revolutionaries?


     


    Join in on the discussion Friday night @ 6pm.
