    The Role of Women in Con­flict Nego­ti­a­tion and Peace­ful Set­tle­ments Nationally and Internationally in the black community

    What are we discussing? Roughly a fortnight ago, we discussed how women have and continue to contribute to resolving conflicts and bringing peace in the community.

    Since this year, the death toll arising from community warfare has been alarming. In South Sudan alone, over 10,000 people have died. The recent concern addresses the large number of conflicts in Africa compared to past decades. Some organizations have taken the bull by the horn to empower women to play a role in peace keeping. According to a United Nations article “In 1993, women made up 1% of deployed uniformed personnel. In 2012, out of approximately 125,000 peacekeepers, women constitute 3% of military personnel and 10% of police personnel in UN Peacekeeping missions”.

    Why are we discussing it? According to the United Nation, “female peacekeepers act as role models in the local environment inspiring women and girls in often male-dominated societies for their own rights and for participation in peace processes”. We, at World Ebony Network want to know what women did to participate in conflict negotiations and in peaceful settlements in the community and how those traditional practices can transcend in today’s world.

    Our April 4th Peace Talk will continue to explore this topic with the following leader(s) in community:

    Dr. Francesca Nkadi, Ms. Marieme Dembele, Ms. Sandra Knight,  Ms. Yeatoe Mcintosh,  Mrs. Catherine Bradley, Fer­ris D. R. Foote

    Host: Dr. Ezi Mecha

    WEN| Role of Women in Conflict Negotiation and Peaceful Community Settlements

    in Radio

    Recent killings in black communities worldwide, especially in South Sudan, reveal black on black crime is becoming a nuisance even in our backyards here in America and in 2014, "the death tolls are huge and the individual incidents gruesome. One estimate says nearly 10,000 people have been killed in South Sudan in a month of warfare, while in neighboring central African Republic combatants in Muslim vs Christian battles have reported a significant amount of children casualties). The articles say that "compared to decades past, Africa and its people are suffering from fewer conflicts today, but several recent outbreaks are cause for concern" and I say "were people of African ancestry always like this? What happened to Ubuntu, or peace chants of the African people? Or could it have been the case of who gave these people the ammunition and weapons of mass destruction and these weapons ending up in the wrong hands? We know women have played a huge role in bringing solutions, such as the Aba women riot in 1929. However, could the approach they used be considered peaceful? Should it be used today or should explore other traditional practices used?


    We believe certain African traditional practices can be applied in our communities today and used to deal with conflicts today .i.e., Bokom-Haram, South Sudan situations. Black on Black crime in America, African American and Black immigrant relationships, relationships among our kind here in America. What do you think?

    PEACE TALKS: African Amer­i­cans and Black Immi­grants

    in Radio

    The diversity of African people is defined by their uniqueness, which is one of their most important characteristics as a people. In the US, Black or African American is one category. Together they comprise approximately 14% of the population in the United States. One would expect synergy from the various groups that constitute the Black society in America. This includes Black immigrants from Africa, South America, Australia, the Caribbean, Europe, Asia, and African Americans. Current reality as revealed by pundits and mere public observation show that relating to one another in their respective communities is a common challenge.

    The existing conflicts are both recent and antiquity based myths such as claims that African Americans don't like Black immigrants because they are reaping the benefit of their struggles for freedom with disregard for the experience of slavery while Black immigrants are said to think that African Americans are aloof of the opportunity of their circumstances. Other myths include the Willie Lynch’s effect and conspiracy theory of who might have been responsible for slave trade.
