    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.

    South African Series Presents - Million Votes For Steve

    in Culture

    On Saturday 23rd May at 2 pm CT (9 pm SA time) we will be talking to the founder of MillionVotes for Steve, Jaco Zaayman, Pieter Gericke and Amor van Heerden.


    Million Votes for Steve was started 7 weeks ago as a Facebook group supporting the quest of local celebrity Steve Hofmeyr for a better South Africa for its white minority, and all other minorities.  During the past 21 years minorities in South Africa have been marginalised, and the role of the white South African in the development of this country has been maligned. Our history, language, career prospects, schools and culture have been under constant attack, and a hatred towards us has been created by the ANC, by adjusting historical facts.  Our action was started to give our people back the voice they have lost, and to let the world know we are dying

Dr. Berry-Opher is an educator with 19 years of experience in a variety of capacities such as teacher, assistant principal, principal, district level supervisor, adjunct college professor, presenter, etc.


    Dr. Berry is a proven collaborative administrator who demonstrates expertise in empowering teaching staffs, successful implementation of professional learning communities through book studies and action research, influencing cultural diversity awareness, and providing high quality teacher professional development. 


    In the journey of life, Dr. Berry strives to make educating youth a smooth process. She advocates, mentors, collaborates, celebrates and works tirelessly to help what one of her mentors calls, “Our Most Valuable Resource, CHILDREN.”


    A vital stitch in the education of a child is their knowledge base about heritage. Although we pay tribute to African American History in the month of February, it is imperative for students to see the impact role models of color have on their daily life and existence year round. Providing exposure to the unsung African American leaders in our country is the ultimate educational gift to children and my humble attempt to recognize greatness in the African American community.

    WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

    If there is such a passage in the Bible or any other book that tells man not to defend him/her self,it is leading you astray. Self preservation is the first law of life and without resistance to those things that oppress us and keep us in perpetual enslavement. We will perish, Self Defense is the only survival tool that will not fail you in any situation you find yourself in. Malcolm El. Haji Shabazz gives us this knowledge through so many of his speeches but this one is the best. 


    "Now I hope you'll forgive me for just speaking so informally tonight, but I frankly think it's always better to be informal. As far as I am concerned, I can speak to people better in an informal way than I can with all of this stiff formality that ends up meaning nothing. Plus, when people are informal, they're relaxed. When they're relaxed, their mind is more open, and they can weigh things more objectively."Whenever you and I are discussing our problems we need to be very objective, very cool, calm, collected. But that doesn't mean we should always be. There's a time to be cool and a time to be hot. See, you got messed up into thinking that there's only one time for everything. There's a time to love and a time to hate. Even Solomon said that, and he was in that Book too. You're just taking something out of the Book that fits your cowardly nature. And when you don't want to fight, you say, "Well, Jesus said don't fight." Malcolm El Haji ShabazzBut I don't even believe Jesus said that." So let's examine what the brother had to say about the surrender of our selves to a belief. If we believe as strongly over reparation of our people to their true wealt, the land we should recive and damages for 400 years of salvery along with 50 or more years of JIm Crow.

    WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

    "They began to do this quite well, and when I got to Paris and London--there are many Afro-Americans in Paris, and many in London. And in December--no, November--we organized a group in Paris and just within a very short time they had grown into a well-organized unit. And they, in conjunction with the African community, invited me to Paris, Tuesday, to address a large gathering of Parisians and Afro-Americans and people from the Caribbean and also from Africa who were interested in our struggle in this country and the rate of progress that we have been making. But since the French government and the British government and this government here, the United States, know that I have been almost fanatically stressing the importance of the Afro-American uniting with the African and working as a coalition, especially in areas which are of mutual benefit to all of us. And the governments in these different places were frightened because they know that the Black revolution that's taking place on the outside of their house--And I might point out right here that colonialism or imperialism, as the slave system of the West is called, is not something that's just confined to England or France or the United States. But the interests in this country are in cahoots with the interests in France and the interests in Britain. It's one huge complex or combine, and it creates what's known as not the American power structure or the French power structure, but it's an international power structure. And this international power structure is used to suppress the masses of dark-skinned people all over the world and exploit them of their natural resources. So that the era in which you and I have been living during the past ten years most specifically has witnessed the upsurge on the part of the Black man in Africa against the power structure. He wants his freedom." MALCOLM EL HAJI MALIK SHABAZZ
