Author Pearl Cleage, Professor Beverly Guy-Sheftall and Poet Nikky Finney will appear on First Wednesday to remember the late activist and writer who captured the struggles of African American culture and struggles so brilliantly in her revolutionary work that it is known for “making no apologies for being Black and female.”
This episode is a tribute to the legacy of Bambara, an appreciation of her work and a celebration of her life and contribution to contemporary American literature and social consciousness.

“I was born in Paris and at the age of 19 moved to Taos, New Mexico, where I started learning jewellery making from Navajo, Hopi and Zuni silversmiths. Seven years later I moved to Mali, West Africa where I studied with Touareg and Bambara jewellers for several years.
I then established myself in Montreal where I joined a jewellery school to learn a more classical view of the trade. Since my arrival there I have been making jewellery and selling it in galleries and shows throughout Canada and the United States. For the past seven years I have been teaching jewellery at a professional school.
For many years now, I have been working to give back to the West African jewellers who taught me and have given me so much. One of the ways I have been doing this is through a teaching collaboration. I have been filming old techniques in Guinea, Mali, Niger and Burkina Faso and then creating a course from those videos. I offer these classes in Montreal and split the proceeds with the African jeweller. The revenue created by this equitable collaboration is leading to formidable changes in the lives of these wonderful and skilful jewellers.
I have also been giving many conferences on West African jewellers, their techniques and their day-to-day lives. My hope is to open a jewellery school in Guinea in the near future.”

He is a singer songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, performer and producer. His teaching and speaking engagements – on the music and spiritual traditions of Africa, microbiology, the intersections of ancient wisdom and modern science, and other topics – have taken him to many colleges and universities.
Tune in and listen up as we share the story of Sundiata Keita (b. abt. 1210- d.abt.1260) the founder of the Mali empire in West Africa. He is regarded as a great magician-king and the national hero of the Malinke-speaking people (Mandinaka, Malinke, Bambara), and a celebrated hero. The epic of Sundiata is primarily, transmitted by generations of Mandinka griots (djeli or jeliw). The famous West African ruler Mansa Musa was his grandnephew.
Sundiata, or Sun Djata, was also known in the Tarikhs (Moslem chronicles) as Mari Djata. Keita is a widely used family name. He is to West African history what King Arthur is to English history, in that both are popular figures about whom very little is known with certainty.
This show will share some of the little known facts about this extraordinary Ruler of the Mali Kingdom.

World-renowned for their inspired performances of traditional Mali tribe music, Papa Wango and Djaly take their calling quite seriously, and with great reverence. African Mali rituals, long held in secret, are considered one of the most powerful and exotic forms of magic the world has ever seen. Practiced for thousands of years, this magic is considered principal to living, mainly through the intense power behind creation and assuring the integral health of the spirit. Papa Wango and Djaly perform their music (which ranges from traditional African styles to even rock and pop sung in Bambara, English, German, French and Spanish) in hopes of entertaining first, but also healing, helping and freeing others. They have presented on radio and television around the world and through their current world tour look to raise money and awareness for African Mali children in need. Acting as their Canadian agent, I am now able to arrange public appearances, events or even private sessions with these extraordinarily talented and personable individuals.

Nephew to Papa Wango, Djaly is also skilled in "kauri" shell reading, providing never-before-seen insights into a person's past, present and future. Djaly takes great pride in being able to help and heal others through his music. Using the African family tradition to guide people from their past into their future sets Djaly apart as he looks to provide his gifts openly to one and all.
This weekend I had the opportunity to visit with two of Africa’s more important artists, filmmakers, Gaston Kabore and Sidi Fassara Diabate. Kabore, honored at the 34th Annual Mill Valley Film Festival which continues through Sunday, October 16, 2011, graciously offered to translate from the French Diabate’s answers to me. Today's broadcast is a unique opportunity to hear from two directors from the African continent who agree that Africans need to continue to tell their own stories especially now. Today many African youth, mesmerized with the West, have forgotten the glory that is their own heritage. African greatness is not limited to European government hostility, in this case, French invasions nor is post-colonial independence (1960) an accurate view of the greatness limited to the recent history that is Burkino Faso (Mossi kingdom) in the case of Gaston or Mali in the case of director, Diabate, a country which was once “part of three West African empires that controlled trans-Saharan trade: the Ghana Empire, the Mali Empire (from which Mali is named). Both directors came to film through their study of history. Though Diabate has worked on every major film to come out of Mali for the past 20 years, Da Monzon,The Conquest of Samayana is his first major film which is in Bambara with English subtitles. Gaston's two major films are: Wend Kuni or God's Gift and it's sequel Buud Yam, screening this evening,Tuesday, October 11, 2011, at the Rafael at 7 PM. Visit mvff.com
Thabiti Lewis teaches in the English department at WSUV. He is the author of Ballers of the New School: Race, Sport and American Culture .
Lewis also teaches courses in the areas of African American Studies and American Studies. While he has a strong interest in race and American sport culture, a primary focus is the author Toni Cade Bambara.
Additionally, he is interested in representations of Black masculinity in popular culture and African American literature. Lewis has also written for newspapers and magazines, and delivered numerous radio commentaries. He has lectured widely on these topics.
Begun 21 years ago as a response to a challenge issued by the late writer, Toni Cade Babara, faculty at Medger Evers College in Brooklyn began a commemoration where libations were poured specifically for African ancestors who died along the triangular slave route 500+ years ago. Since then the commemoration has grown and expanded to other regions as the ritual on Coney Island has maintained its central theme while expanding to include ancestors who survived the journey, the cotton fields, forced free labor, segregation, Jim Crow, and even structural racism so that we could have a grounding and firm footing on this land/these lands. We speak to a member of the People of the Sun Middle Passage Collective, Hapte Selassie, educator and WBAI radio DJ, about the ritual: its history and the program this year on Coney Island, West 16th Street," Ancestor Circle," from 12 noon to dusk. Don't forget the spirit of unity--pour at 9 AM PT, 11 AM CT, and 12 noon ET. If you can't pour physical water, hold the ancestors in your heart for a moment of silence.
