    African-American Leaders A-Z- By Dr. Andrea Berry

    in Spirituality

    Dr. Berry currently serves as an instructional Supervisor of Equity, Diversity, Special Programs, and English Language Learners on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. 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.

    Wanda's Picks Radio Show

    in Art

    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!

    1. Joe Driscoll, musician, composer, is making his San Francisco Bay Area debut with Sekou Koyate Sunday, May 24, 2015 at the Freight and Savage in Berkeley. http://www.thefreight.org/joe-driscoll-sekou-kouyate

    WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

    Today our show involves what our weekly show is going to be about, EDUCATION OFF THE BLACK MASSES IN AMERICA AND AFRICA ABOUT THE BLACK CODES.


     This was the first act that lets us know that there were educated Black and Brown People before America United in 1776, in fact THE ACT OF 1740. This act was put onto place after the first Continental Congress.  The Declaration of Independence, that is credited to  be written by Thomas Jefferson was in fact written by his Scribe Slave. The President over the first Continental Congress was  a Moor, and the Author of the Mayflower Pact was a Moor.  The same Black Moors Scribed and constructed the original Constitution which is locked away in Fort Knox with the Moorish flag. The Second CONTINENTAL Congress rewrote the Constitution instituting slavery and the laws against educating non whites.  Uneducated Whites did not like the idea of Black or Brown people being educated and intelligent enough to make the country unite. The laws became more server and the punishment more detrimental. So when Whites claim that all people had been slaves and reparations should not be paid, I say you are liras. Chattel Slavery was the cruelest injustice in human history. In fact you acknowledge this by saying the Jews of Germany were entitled to reparations, when Hitler himself said he got his platform for his internment camps from the American Slave System, in his book Mein Kampf. The Act of Chattel Slavery has Laws and those are laws the are still enforced to keep Black African people all over the world oppressed, and if it was so inhuman when done to the Jews it is equally as inhuman when done to African Black People if you are not liars and twisting the truth to benefit those White Jews from Germany. Hassidic's are not  Semites because it has been proven that they posses the Neanderthal Genes are not present in Black African people  West Asian+ African = Semite.
