Lee Patterson of the Baltimore People's Power Assembly (PPA) will join us again for another on the ground report about the situation inside the city. There is a review as well of the hidden history of the April 6-7, 1968 rebellion in Baltimore in the aftermath of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who was martyred on April 4 in Memphis. An appeal surrounding the health emergency of United States political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal is also presented. In addition a detailed discussion on the situation in Baltimore is presented from KPFA.

All people must receive an education that pertains to the intelligent human venue of origins--are you can never be indeed autonomously a civilized individual. The African religion was first inaugurated in Mesopotamia some 6,000 years ago, and worked its way through many cultures, before some of its rituals and precepts reached the West. Therefore it is impossible for prodigal religions to take the place of the genuine Mesopotamian incipient reprotype human religion.
The first carnival was staged in 1912 during the final years of Danish occupation and lapsed during World War I. Revived in 1952, carnival has become the second largest festival in the Caribbean.
A month-long series of dazzling pageants and talent shows is held to choose royalty to rein over the festival. Fun events such as a boat race, Greased Pig Contest and Toddlers Derby entertain everyone at the festivities.
A series of elimination contests to crown top performers are called Calypso Tents. Calypsonions offer satirical commentary on the state of the islands, oftentimes mocking the shenanigans of politicians. Other popular events held during Carnival is j'ouvert, a morning jump up, a food fair presenting the islands’ best traditional eats and a competition to crown the King and Queen of the parade troupes.
A children's and adult’s parade close the lively month with brilliantly costumed and decorated troupes and floats.

When I see effigies of black people hanging from trees in Baltimore and this lets me and every intelligent human being understand the magnitude of the racist attitudes in the world today. When president Obama first came into office an effigy of him was hung at a Shell Gas station. One question does he not realize that when he leaves office he is going to face this bullshit that is happening her in the world agains Black African People? We were taught by Malcolm El Haji Malik Shabazz that our freedom is all we have and that we must achieve it by any means necessary"It’s just like when you’ve got some coffee that’s too black, which means it’s too strong. What you do? You integrate it with cream; you make it weak. If you pour too much cream in, you won’t even know you ever had coffee. It used to be hot, it becomes cool. It used to be strong, it becomes weak. It used to wake you up, now it’ll put you to sleep. This is what they did with the march on Washington. They joined it. They didn’t integrate it; they infiltrated it. They joined it, became a part of it, took it over. And as they took it over, it lost its militancy. They ceased to be angry. They ceased to be hot. They ceased to be uncompromising. Why, it even ceased to be a march. It became a picnic, a circus. Nothing but a circus, with clowns and all. You had one right here in Detroit — I saw it on television — with clowns leading it, white clowns and black clowns. I know you don’t like what I’m saying, but I’m going to tell you anyway. ’Cause I can prove what I’m saying. If you think I’m telling you wrong, you bring me Martin Luther King and A. Philip Randolph and James Farmer and those other three, and see if they’ll deny it over a microphone." What are you going to do about this crisis in America Mr. President? Put it in your list that rhymes with Bucket, Sir
I met my first African American Athiest here in Las Vegas in 2003, he was my roommate and workmate ! At the time I did not know but he never responded to my words that I spoke out of scripture ! Brother Will was 10 years older then me and grew up in Chicago as he and his family are Christians ! He told me he was raised in a Baptist Church but thay was all said ! In April of 2002 we became roommates at the Southcove Apt on 15 th street & Fremont in Downtown Las Vegas ! What we had in common was we were both African American's, worked Day Labor together and we liked partying ( Crack) and Women ! I liked Will, he was like a big Brother to me and he was very generous and he never said anything about my belief in my Lord or interfere with my daily prayers and scripture study ! How it was revealed to me, we used to quote our beloved Brother Malcom X to each other ! Then one day he said Brother, I don't believe there is a God or a Devil but he never said the reason he stopped believing in a God nor did I asked him ! The thing is, I felt Will was in my Life for a reason, to lead him back home ! This is the Story of Brother William Gardner for Chicago, Illionois RIP- 2011 !
Join 'Africa On The Move' today, Sunday, May 3, 2015 from 7 - 9 PM EST. Today's theme is: 'Why So Many People Feel Powerless or Just Don't Believe In This System?' Join Us by dialing in at (323) 679-0841 or go online at: www.blogtalkradio.com/africa-on-the-move. We will discuss other important topics that affect our community with our political panelists; we would like also to hear your perspectives as well.
Often there is discussion and studies regarding black women being single, without a mate. Nobody ever tries to bring forth dialogue regarding ending the crisis. Now African American Women Matters have.
African American men are very liberal about dating outside his race. And is known to be a very staunch supporter of interracial love. I don't have anything against anyone that date outside their race.
I don't have a problem with black women that date outside of their race. I've heard that the black community isn't really supportive and somewhat ostracize black women that date out. It has been said that the black community is willing to embrace white women as an in-law but not a white male as an in-law. Is this true? If why?
Should the black community try to be more inclusive to black women involved in interracial relationships. Should African American women become vocal about ending the single black women crisis? So much 'ratchedness' would end if single black women could find a partner. Let's be civil and discuss this topic. If you think AAWM is wrong to bring this topic to the table explain why.
There is nothing like being emotionally moved by a piece of art. Whether it be a painting, sculpture, or some other form of creativity; the overall impression can be lasting and coerce us to rethink how we view ourselves and the world around us.
Manifest Justice is a large-scale pop-up art exhibition, cultural convening, and community organizing event taking place in the Baldwin Hills area of South Los Angeles. Unlike other civil rights exhibits that highlight events from the 60's, Manifest Justice is hauntingly current. Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, and Oscar Grant are but a few of the many victims who have been immortalized through the works of over 150 artists.
Tonight I will be joined by Nijeul Xavier Porter, a young man who is instrumental to the success of the event; and Gabriel Garcia Roman, an artist who has works on display at the event. Both will share why the event is important -especially in today's social climate-and what it means to be a part of the experience.
MONDAY MAY 4
BIKES * BOARDS * BROTHERHOOD
THEN And NOW!
We'll delve deep into what is for the most part, an unrecorded part of Black Ourstory, & Culture and One of the GREATEST BLACK MALE UNIFIER'S OF THE STREETS on positive front. Uniquely an African re-born in America, inner city expression of LUV, FAMILY, & COMMUNITY (especially amongst MEN)
This Nu African tradition and rites of passage flexed its OWN MEASURING STICK
