SORT BY Relevancy
For the better part of 200 years, thousands of female soldiers fought and died to expand the borders of their West African kingdom. Even their conquerors, the French, acknowledged their "prodigious bravery." According to Greek accounts, the earliest Amazons came from Libya (then a name for most of North Africa). They wore red leather and carried crescent-shaped shields. It was these Libyan Amazons, they said, who later founded cities and temples in the Aegean and Anatolia. At a much later period, the Amazons of Dahomey were crack all-female troops, all female, who also served as royal bodyguards. They were also priestesses and wore crescent moon crowns.The Hausa had a number of warrior queens, notably Amina of Zau Zau. A woman named Bazao-Turunku led warriors and founded a town south of Zaria. Nupe women warriors called Isadshi-Koseshi fought as fiercely as the men, opposing invasions of the Fulbe conquerers who raided the Nupe for cattles and slaves, especially women. We are going to pay respect to the woman warriors and explain why and who were the original ride or die chicks.

Given the recent events in Nigeria, due to the actions of the Nigerian group known as Boko Haraam,we at Critical Discourse have taken it upon ourselves to bring this to the table.
SInce heir inception,some sources stating as far back as 1995,they've been associated with wanton acts of viloence and carnage, But it was the recent abduction of schools girls from the town of Chibok, that has really caused the world to take serious notice, and demand justice.
Notwithstanding the historic dynamics and tensions, much of tribal, that have plauged Nigeria since colonial days, this present crisis brings to the table, the reaction, attitudes and frankly, examination of doctrine of Muslims / Al-Islam.
It is our desire for this show, to clarify what Al-Islam says about such acts; needless to say, they are unacceptable and outright haraam (forbidden).
This crisis opens up the discussion on a number of sensitive issues around the status and dignity of women in and out of Al-Islam, so that the case be made,that their security, dignity and protection are held sacred.
This should prove to be a most engaging and informative airing of Critical Discourse.

Nuwamba, whose name means November in the Nigerian language Hausa, is an extraordinarily innovative singer and songwriter of great depth and passion. His heart-crafted songs touch on a multiplicity of issues often overlooked by the modern music world and offers listeners an acoustic picture of life, love and the prospects of liberation from lifes challenges. Nuwamba Soul and R&B artist Nuwamba is an adventurous artist in more ways than one. First off, Nuwamba always demands originality from himself. Music that is patterned after the template laid by another is not speaking from the soul, the source of all great music. Nuwamba is unafraid to try new things while still capturing soulful sounds that make listeners come forth and stick around. He is also adventurous in the realm of the mind. He prefers music that elevates the soul and sends it shooting off into the cosmos.

The History of Black Americans and the Black Church #14
Our Scripture verse for today is 1 Peter 2:9-10 which reads: "But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light; Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy."
Our History of Black Americans and the Black Church quote for today is from Lee June, a professor at Michigan State University and the author of the book, "Yet With A Steady Beat: The Black Church through a Psychological and Biblical Lens." He said, "Within the Black community and the 'Black Church' the person who is a pastor is often more revered for preaching than for pastoring. As noted by Hamilton, preaching is one of the qualities that is most desirable and reinforced. I believe that this overemphasis on preaching has often led many pastors to neglect the 'shepherding' and leadership aspects of their roles. An additional widespread belief about preaching is that it is an activity to be geared toward believers and within a church setting. Speaking in contrast to this belief, Douglas in The New Bible Dictionary indicated that preaching in the early church was an activity geared toward nonbelievers."
Our first topic for today is a continuation of our look at the earliest African states from the book, "From Slavery to Freedom" by John Hope Franklin. We are going to look at the Hausa states.
The Afno, or Hausa, people are said to have had seven original states, the best known of which were Kano, Zaria, and Katsina. The Hausa states occupied roughly the area that today is northern Nigeria. Each kingdom retained its identity, with Kano emerging into the limelight for a while, then yielding to Katsina, and so on...
