There is an overarching stereotype about the absence of African men in family and community development. Some claim that African "Black" males have failed to protect their communities while some say African leaders are the ones failing to protect their societies. Is there some validity is this stereotype?
However, history portrays Africa as an organized society where males prided themselves in protecting their communities. This character trait dates as far back as pre-colonial days were men were more socio-politically visible than women and in some societies; even though they deferred some of the sociopolitical roles to women. In those societies, women were allowed to make decisions pertaining to women affairs, but in general, men played various roles as councilmen, elders, and as a matter of fact, as those responsible for guarding the living from the forces of evil.
How do character traits of today's men differ from those of our ancestors? What have we forgotten to remember? Is it good to remember and continue to observe the cultural legacy and behavioral commitments of the ancestors? Is it possible to combine the Afrocentric governance with those of our ancestors? From the look of things, corrupt governments, killings, etc., it appears black leaders have moved too far from the good traditional practices of their ancestors. If this is the case, then who protects black communities? Should those good traditional protective roles be abandoned? Will electoral processes work in black communities, particularly, in Africa? Where do we go from here?
. The program is co-directed and co-produced by African Views.
Kalyn Risker will facilitate a dialog with guest presenter Janis Gonder Allen which will explore some of the historical and current challenges of the backlog of untested forensic rape kits. Specifically examining the backlog in Detroit, Michigan a city with a population of 706,640 people of which 576,298 are African Americans. Over 25 years over 11,000 rape victims had forensic evidence collected through rape kits, and yet the kits were not analyzed. Additionally, they will discuss the challenges and interventions regarding the backlog in the African American community.
This show springboards from last week's discussion of Mental Illness in the African American community. "The Experience" examines the root of this disorder, looking at the ineffectiveness of tradional Eurocentric ideas applied in the Black Community, the limits of "minority consciousness," as well as comparing the values and structures of past, present, and future generations. Bill Green, co-founder of the African American Communiversal Project and an innovator in dealing with substance abuse and mental illness in the Black Community, for over 30 years, joins "The Experience."
"Our society tends to regard sickness as any mode of thought or behavior that is inconvenient for the system and this is plausible because when an individual doesn't fit into the system it causes pain to the individual as well as problems for the system. Thus the manipulation of an individual to adjust him to the system is seen as a cure for a sickness and therefore is good" -Theodore Kacynski
Weekly we address PANDEMICS that have infiltrated the land.
IF 2 1/2 TIMES MORE AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMEN ARE LIKELY TO BE KILLED THAN WHITE WOMEN BY THEIR PARTNERS, WHY DOES THERE SEEM TO BE SUCH A "SILENCE" IN THE AFRICAN AMERICAN COMMUNITY? WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT IT?
