This morning we will be speaking to visual artist William Rhodes, whose exhibit Souls of Water up at th San Francisco Main Library, African American Ctr., 3rd Fl., 100 Larkin Street, through tomorrow, Feb. 6, 2014, 415-557-4277. Rhodes says of his work that it "explores themes of hidden knowledge, iconographic imagery and forms and how they can change meaning in a given cultural context. Explorations into the contrast between these traditional cultures and our modern one have also added depth to the narrative quality to my work." He is a woodworker by trade, an artist by choice. I strive to blend fine craft, sculpture and design with meaning and function. My travels to Africa, Asia, and Central and South America have strongly influenced my work. The people, art and cultures of these societies have inspired me to consider non-traditional approaches to art and sculpture. In every work I choose to start with reclaimed wood as my structural material. I enjoy the process of carving wood into a variety of shapes and sizes. The process of carving drawers and hidden compartments into the wood allows me to incorporate my need for functionality. Each piece can stand on its own as a functional object yet it is art. Mirrors have always been important to my work. I realized how mirrors can draw the viewer directly into the work. Every individual reflection adds to the story of the art. As a child I often asks myself the question of how early Humans saw their reflection? I believed Water gave humans the ability to see themselves. I often think of how water moves and creates circular shapes when I design my sculptures. This organic fluidity is always a part of my wood carving process. We close with a rebraodcast of an interview first taped January 31 with Kendra Kimbrough-Barnes, Laura Elaine Ellis and Gregory Dawson about the 10th Annual Black Choreographers Festival Here and Now, 2/9-3/8/2014.
Join guest host Antoine 'Mwalimu' Bean as we explore the following subject:
Helping the African Diaspora should be the collective strive of all people of African descent. For while it is clear that our brothers and sisters are still held captive to the oppressive forces of the western world, the right thing to do is to reach out to offer them the very preciousness of Africa that western minds seek to attain in Africa.
In fact, as Africans born in the motherland, we understand that the wedge of division between us couldn't be any deeper than now - even as greedy white people try to hold us down and keep us apart at all times. But as African descendants we must not only strive for our survival but also thrive in our African uniqueness.
Join us; as we explore the best ways to help Africans of the Diaspora. Francis Aka-eri

Some shortsighted members of our African family would say that Africans of the Diaspora would bring nothing else but the greedy white man's ways back to the motherland. Could they be right?

Upon obtaining his Master's Degree in Social Studies-Citizenship, Jones worked vigorously in the Philadelphia Public School system. As a professor, he also teaches courses in the area of Community Leadership and Humanities. An accomplished lecturer, writer and public speaker, Jones has become a beacon of hope within the community as he strives to continue his focus concerning the improvement of the socio-economic and political conditions of the African born Americans as well as descendants of the African Diaspora. He continues to work with at-risk youths helping them to develop and utilize critical thinking skills through his workshops and lectures. This show will explore the issues of our times as we continue to expose the obstacles in our way of cultural, political and socio-economical liberation from the clutches of systemic racism white supremacy. As Dr. Neely Fuller once stated, "If you do not understand white supremacy everything else you know will only serve to confuse you."
This is a black arts and culture site. We will be exploring the African Diaspora via the writing, performance, both musical and theatrical (film and stage), as well as the visual arts of Africans in the Diaspora and those influenced by these aesthetic forms of expression. I am interested in the political and social ramifications of art on society, specifically movements supported by these artists and their forebearers. It is my claim that the artists are the true revolutionaries, their work honest and filled with raw unedited passion. They are our true heroes. Ashay!
Tonight we are blessed with the divine presence of Dr. Vibert White Ph.D., associate professor at the University Of Central Florida and his Queen of a Wife, Sister Michelle White Muhammad, as they go deep into the issues concerning the various countries on the continent of Africa, namely Nigeria, and the politics and issues of the continent as a whole.
They will also speak on the economic development of those African countries and what we as Black Americans can do to participate in the global economy with the focus being on the Motherland.
The Edward Snowden situation will be discussed as well as the issue of terrorism and the falsehoods promoted to the American people through the mainstream media.
All are welcomed to listen in and the audience will have the opportunity to participate in sharing their questions with Dr. White toward the latter segments of the program.
