Kwanzaa is a Pan African Holiday that emphasizes a time of remembrance and recommitment to the global African community and to our ancestors. It creates the climate to sustain reflections regarding the moral compass, vast influence, and extensive reach with regard to the meaning of being African in this world. Within the climate of this day and time it is critical that we explore the meaning of who we are, who we were, the legacies that were passed down, and the legacies that we are leaving for the following generations.
Plus, some special words from the late, great Maya Angelou on the significance of Kwanzaa and why it is so important to the African-American experience.
Also, healthy choices in cooking traditional African-American soul food. How to incorporate a healthy new start to an old tradition in this New Year.

Listen to this special edition of the Pan-African Journal hosted by Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire. The program presents the regular PANW reports on developments in the anti-racist struggle inside the United States among other issues. The second hour will feature an audio documentary on the false premises which took the U.S. into the war in Vietnam and the opposition which arose to the conflict. Finally an examination of the Ebola Virus Disease outbreak in West Africa and its impact socially, politically and economically during 2014.
My name is Dr. Ramona Brockett, the research that I will discuss on this episode of The LanceScurv Show comes from my dissertation where I used secondary data from the NCCD archives of the University of Michigan and ran a logistic regression to determine African American (AA) and European American (EA) perceptions of police aggression.
I looked at justified police aggression and unjustified police aggression. When I say, "aggression," I mean police action. The areas of perception included everything from arrests to helping old ladies across the street.
The most important findings were these:
(1) AA's in the upper glass approved of police aggression at a lower rate than lower class EA's;
(2) Working class AA's and Working class EA's approved similarly police to both justified and unjustified police aggression; and,
(3) working class AA's approve of both justified and unjustified police aggression at a higher rate than the upper class AA's, middle class AA's and lower class AA's. Dissimilarly, EA's approval is proportionate with class. So, upper class A's approve at the highest rates and approval decreases with class.
A second topic we need to explore is my Conceptual Incarceration Theory. This theory looks at the 13th Amendment and I contend that inherent within the wording of the 13Th Amendment, the AA is reinslaved upon incarceration. Thus, the reason why black life is devalued--we are not considered human. Thus, Garner etc., could easily be killed.
Lance and I look forward to your presence and participation in the sharing of my findings.
See you there!

Listen to the Pan-African Journal hosted by Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire. In our regular PANW reports we look at and analyze the recent open letter written by the newly-elected Tunisian President Beji Caid Essebsi on the task facing this North African state; the increasing instability threatening Tunisia from Libya where rebels in the post-Gaddafi state continue to their internecine warfare; the lawsuit that was filed by an African American man against the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) accusing the police of racial profiling leading to his arrest; and the ongoing struggle in Missouri to reclaim the just legacy of slain Michael Brown where one of his memorials were destroyed on Dec. 25. The second hour highlights the largest African slave rebellion in New Orleans in 1811 as well as the origins of the United States Women's Rights Movement in the Anti-Slavery Abolitionist struggles of the mid-19th century. The final segment reviews the historic 1951 student strike against school segregation in Prince Edward County, Virginia that was led by 17-year-old Barbara Johns.
What can we do? How far can we go? How big can we get? Sometimes we don't realize how much ability the Omnipotent Creator has bestowed upon us. But how do we get an idea of what we are capable of? This will come to light through the wisdom that Rabbi Jeremiah Ben Zaddik Yisrael will be teaching us from his wealth of years studying the esoteric wisdom. As it is said, "To know your self is to know the world"
Join us today 5:30 CST as we raise the question:
What does it mean to be Black or African-American and how did you learn to be that?
Are we taught to be Black or is Black the experience the is shared by all Black people?
As we exit this year 2014 what new chapters would you like read about in the book of Blackness and what chapters are you tired of revisiting and hearing about??
