    American White History Month - South African Series

    in Politics Conservative

    Join American White History Month this Thursday 5th March, 2015 with host Karin Smith and two great guests.


    Cuan Elgin "A True Story of South Africa - BULALA".  


    Deeply researched, the Scottish-Irish-descended South African-born author travelled over 15,500 miles [25,000 km.] across South Africa to every historical site mentioned in the narrative, in his first-hand investigative research. You will learn, laugh, and cry—but more importantly, understand the actual events which transpired in this controversial, southern-most African nation, without the bias of the media or the pressured slant of special-interest groups. 


    Joining us will be Don Deon  - 


    I started the Southern African Commonwealth (Bondstaat) initiative which aims to reconnect all Southern Africa’s diverse people with their heritage and culture and traditions.  The first step in this for the Afrikaner people was to setup the SAUK Nuus news website and facebook page. This is vital to give the people their identity back and also crucial in the fight against all the forms of genocide.


    I am fighting for TRUE diversity, TRUE multiculturism and True Independence in South Africa for the minorities, and worldwide...


    This will be a very informative and entertaining show - so dial in, call in - we look forward to hearing from you

    A Culture of Marriage: Does It Still Exist For African American Males?

    in Religion

    Two African American Authors, Dr. Jamal Rasheed and Dr. Obari Cartman, discuss the evolving attitudes toward marriage and family among Black men. Are men even being socialized to consider marriage a natural part of adulthood? Or are the high divorce rates and out of wedlock births making it more common to simply be a "baby daddy" rather than a husband? In our first hour, Dr. Jamal Shahid discusses his books Broader Perspectives in Educating All of Us, Positive Solutions To Improve Our Lives, and It's Mandatory to Identify and Kick Slave Habits. Dr. Cartman joins us in our second hour to discuss his book, Lady's Man: Conversations For Young Black Men About Relationships and Manhood.

    What Is The Global Image Of African American Culture?

    in Women

    Modern means of communication has turned the world into a global village, where everyone in the world is our neighbor. Some people are the type of people you wouldn't want as neighbors. You know who they are - loud, ignorant, destructive, disrespectful, out of control. When we think of traveling to enjoy another part of the world and experience the culture, there are some places in the world we would love to be, the people seem interesting, the entertainment enjoyable, the way of life seems comfortable, and we could feel safe. But what does the rest of the world see when they consider traveling to the inner cities of America? The world loves our music and dancing, but what about this image of excessive crime? This week, we'll talk to journalists and image makers who are examining the global impressions of African American culture, and how that affects the economy in the inner cities. Today we'll talk to members CAAAP, Chicago Association of African American Photographers, whose mission is to capture images that define the history and culture of African American people. Our guests are photographer Deleshia Kinney who is working on a new photography book on African American women and beauty of their natural hair, and Curtis Kojo Morrow, artist, photographer and author of the books "What's A Commie Ever Done To Black People?" and  "My Sankofa."

    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.
