    Mama Pam Africa: Enough Said

    in School

    Pam Africa is the head of International Concerned Friends and Family of Mumia Abu-Jamal, the Philadelphia-based organization at the center of the international movement seeking Abu-Jamal’s release. She and Ramona Africa are also members and survivors of the MOVE Maafa.
    Africa is the dynamo whom most Philadelphia police, prosecutors, politicians and many pastors love to hate because of her strident advocacy on behalf of imprisoned journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal and MOVE members sentenced for a fatal 1978 shootout.
    While winning freedom for Abu-Jamal and the MOVE Nine is a definitive focus of Pam Africa’s advocacy, she is frequently found on “front lines” nationwide fighting for ending mistreatment of people regardless of their color and creed.
    “Pam Africa is in each and every struggle for social justice in Philadelphia, the U.S. and abroad. It’s not just Mumia,” said activist/writer Berta Joubert-Ceci while chairing a program in West Philadelphia a few weeks ago.
    During that West Philly program Africa received praise from another warrior for right, former U.S. representative Cynthia McKinney, whose praise also highlighted Africa’s often overlooked soft side.
    McKinney proudly displayed a stylish African-themed jacket Africa had given her as a present that evening, a garment McKinney had complimented Africa for wearing at an event in Atlanta that McKinney attended.
    I am deeply honored that she has consented to be a guest on my show. Mama will give her views on public education and much more I am sure. Don't miss out. Call in and check in!!

    It’s Turn up Time, Support Parole for the Move 9 Sisters

    in Current Events

    Tune in to George Jackson University Radio on Wednesday 1/13/2016 8est.  Our guest for this week’s broadcast will be our beloved Pam Africa and Orie Lumumba.  They will join us to give us all updates on the ongoing Struggle to FREE THE MOVE ORGANIZATION POLITICAL PRISONERS.  Call in 347 8267332 or log on to www.blogtalkradio.com/georgejacksonradio It’s Turn up Time, Support Parole for the Move 9 Sisters.


     This Coming May our sisters Move Political Prisoners Janet, Janine, and Debbie Africa will be making an appearance for what will be their seventh time before The Pennsylvania Parole Board and we intend to turn the heat up over this. The Pennsylvania Parole Board since 2008 has worked consistently with the Fraternal Order of Police and This Government to ensure that not only Move Members remain in prison but to ALSO DIE IN PRISON as per the death of Phil Africa in Early January 2015. We have serious work to do as we cannot afford to let another one of our family and political prisoners die in the prison system. The Time is now to bring them home all of them home.


    Our Family’s now going into their 38th year of unjust imprisonment. Our sisters were framed for the Murder of Officer James Ramp as well as our brothers and each given 30-100 years but the thing that we want to point out is that our sisters none were never given weapons charges when tried and convicted. For The now 38 years that committed Move Members have been in prison they have set a Strong Revolutionary Example of Love, Commitment, Unity, and Hard Work all instilled in them by JOHN AFRICA THE FOUNDER AND COORDINATOR OF THE MOVE ORGANIZATION. This example has earned the respect of prison officials throughout the state of Pennsylvania.

    WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

    What exactly is the Spiritual stance of the Black Panther Party? THE SON OF MAN TEMPLE was created by Huey P. Newton which had a purpose in the spiritual  lives of the Panthers through the acceptance of all, but mandated no religious preference. It is stated as follows by Huey in the “STATEMENT OF PURPOSE”


    “We have always hoped that we could establish a place in our community where hundreds of ideas could grow and flourish, where people could feel free to say and do the things that seemed most natural to them.  The Son of Man Temple was created for that purpose, to serve in humankind’s development.


    However, the place in which we come together to espresso our humanity is not a church in the most traditional sense.  We do not practice a religion; we are not Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu, or Moslem. We do not honor one God or one reverend.  This does not mean that we negate any religion; we all have differing philosophies and jews of our world.  We are all part of everything and it is a part of each of us.


    Our belief is that every human being has the right to be free.  We can all agree that we are not.  Therefore, we come together to express our agreement on the belief every Sunday at the Son of Man Temple.  It is a place where we can come to discover and learn.  If we begin the week with this kind of unity and understanding, we can carry through each day our concern and an enthusiastic felling about our survival and our freedom.   


     The ways in which we express this agreement about our desire to break away from our common problems—oppression—may differ.  Some of us might sing or dance about it, some of us might play music about it, or some of us might speak about various aspects of our problem. It does not matter what we do if it is done with sincerity and in our people’s interest." Huey P. Newton

    WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

    "Asa Philip Randolph was about ten when a group of solemn, angry men arrived at his Jacksonville, Florida, home one afternoon. They wanted to see his father, Reverend James William Randolph.  The reverend gathered the men in the family's sparse living room, and they told him what had happened.
    A black man had been locked up in the Duval County jail and angry white men were muttering about hanging him without a trial.  Such hangings,  known as lynchings, were terribly familiar to black people, particularly in the South.  But the city of Jacksonville had a tradition of African American pride; the black men gathered in Randolph house were not willing to tolerate lynching.  Guns packed, they were prepared to encircle the jail and greet the white mob with force. They wanted the reverend to join them.
    The Randolph's kept two guns in the house, a Bulldog pistol and a shotgun. James Randolph handed his wife the shotgun, took the Bulldog for himself and headed for the Jail. Elizabeth Randolph, a dead shot, kept the gun cradled across her lap for the rest of the night.  The Reverend returned home at dawn, exhausted but relieved.  When the lynch mob was confronted with the jail's armed defenders they wisely backed down."  A. PHILIP RANDOLPH and the AFRICAN AMERICAN LABOR MOVEMENT by Calvin Craig Miller.

    It all comes from "The Mother"Africa" and Ms. Tracey has set the tone Fiercely

    in Entertainment

    Hey there Tea Sippers!  Today I am going to open your eyes and perhaps your consciousness to a journey that some of our bruthas and sistahs are on that doesn't get its proper respect or just due. As a part of Black History/Herstory Month, we have to be ALL INCLUSIVE of the richness of what we have to offer the populace.


    As we are embarking on the empowerment of the Transgender Community, there is a name that MUST be celebrated and recognized as a trailblaze, pioneer, and front line "warrior" for the equity building of the transgender community.  Before there was LaVerne Cox and Janet Mock......there was Tracey Africa!!!


    Tracey Gayle Norman-Africa was once the FACE of Ms. Clairol and was the first Black Transwoman Supermodel to strut down the catwalk.  Now, after a flourishing career in the fashion industry, she is currently serving as The Mother of The House Africa and embarking on her own Home Decorating business.


    Today, I celebrate the HURSTORY of this Icon so bring plenty of crumpets cuz THIS TEA is HOT
