    Should African Americans Celebrate St. Patrick's Day

    in Culture

    TONIGHT: Listen to The African History Network Show, Thurs., March, 19th, 8:00pm-10:00pm EST (5:00am-7:00pm PST) with host Michael Imhotep.  We’ll also discuss “Should African Americans Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day”.  Call in with your Questions/Comments at 914-338-1375.  


    Around this time of the year you will see St. Patrick’s Day Parades, Kiss Me I’m Irish T-Shirts, Green Beer, Leprechauns, etc.  It is expected that 127 million Americans will spend approximately $4.6 Billion during this St. Patrick’s Day holiday.  One of the strangest things you will see is African Americans participating in this “celebration”.  Do you really know what you are celebrating?  Have you studied the history of St. Patrick’s Day?  Even if you claim that you have Irish Ancestry do you really know what you are celebrating? 


    Did you know that Patrick was not Irish he was British?  Why do we participate in celebrations without knowing what we are participating in?  If you wear Green on St. Patrick’s Day, will you wear Red, Black & Green on African Liberation Day?  If not, why not?  I’m pretty sure you have more African Ancestry than Irish Ancestry. 


    Malaika Cooper of “The Baltimore Natural Hair Care Expo” and Relationship Expert C.J. Gross will join us to talk about this upcoming Natural Hair Care Expo in Baltimore, Sat. March 21st & Sun. March 22nd.  Don’t miss workshops by Michael Imhotep of The African History Network Show dealing with “Great Black Women In History”.  Visit www.AfricanHistoryNetwork.com.
