Pam Africa is internationally known for her work on various causes including the case of Mumai abu Jamal. Controversial and outspoken, Sister Pam will join us to talk about her work.
All activists need to hear her story. A hero to many, equally villanized in some circles. She has never sold out and allways speaks her mind.
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!!
before we changed the name of our show to the Indpendent News Hour we were Dr. J and douggiestyle.
On April 10, 2013 Sister Pam Africa, well known civil and human rights activist granted us an interview. She has a fascinating story of her road to becoming an activist and coming to terms with her own identity.
When I see effigies of black people hanging from trees in Baltimore and this lets me and every intelligent human being understand the magnitude of the racist attitudes in the world today. When president Obama first came into office an effigy of him was hung at a Shell Gas station. One question does he not realize that when he leaves office he is going to face this bullshit that is happening her in the world agains Black African People? We were taught by Malcolm El Haji Malik Shabazz that our freedom is all we have and that we must achieve it by any means necessary"It’s just like when you’ve got some coffee that’s too black, which means it’s too strong. What you do? You integrate it with cream; you make it weak. If you pour too much cream in, you won’t even know you ever had coffee. It used to be hot, it becomes cool. It used to be strong, it becomes weak. It used to wake you up, now it’ll put you to sleep. This is what they did with the march on Washington. They joined it. They didn’t integrate it; they infiltrated it. They joined it, became a part of it, took it over. And as they took it over, it lost its militancy. They ceased to be angry. They ceased to be hot. They ceased to be uncompromising. Why, it even ceased to be a march. It became a picnic, a circus. Nothing but a circus, with clowns and all. You had one right here in Detroit — I saw it on television — with clowns leading it, white clowns and black clowns. I know you don’t like what I’m saying, but I’m going to tell you anyway. ’Cause I can prove what I’m saying. If you think I’m telling you wrong, you bring me Martin Luther King and A. Philip Randolph and James Farmer and those other three, and see if they’ll deny it over a microphone." What are you going to do about this crisis in America Mr. President? Put it in your list that rhymes with Bucket, Sir
Have you ever gone to a networking event and had to stand up in front of a room full of people to give your elevator speech?
Did your heart race? Head pound? By the time you were done you were shaking like a leaf and just wanted the floor to open up and swallow you whole?
Public speaking is terrifying. There’s no doubt about it. But…when you conquer that fear and just do it, public speaking is incredibly fulfilling and rewarding.
Public speaking expert, Pam Terry, is going to give us pointers on how we can master public speaking and come out looking like experts!
MODERN DAY SLAVERY ITS RECOGNIZABLE CHARICTERISTICS
Todays show will be on the charges brought against the Baltimore Police Officers who killed Freddy Gray while he was in custody. There have been many stories on this subject that I have covered this week and today the decission came down to charge them with 2nd Degree Murder, Manslaughter, and Assult. It will be a very late start for this show today because of events beyond my control but it will take place and we will continue to examine Malcolm El Haji Malik Shabazz's "Message To The Grassroots" Our show will start at 11pm eastern daylight savings time. The subject is known to us the New Slavery Mass arrest of protestors and the harsh sentanceing that is going on and why. The trial that will be coming up in the wake of these charges filed today against the police officers. What to expect from this and what to watch out for. The Uncle Tom and Aunt Tomassinas who will be trying to lul Black Folks Back to sleep.
Malcolm said;"This modern house Negro loves his master. He wants to live near him. He’ll pay three times as much as the house is worth just to live near his master, and then brag about “I’m the only Negro out here.” “I’m the only one on my job.” “I’m the only one in this school.” You’re nothing but a house Negro. And if someone comes to you right now and says, “Let’s separate,” you say the same thing that the house Negro said on the plantation. “What you mean, separate? From America? This good white man? Where you going to get a better job than you get here?” I mean, this is what you say. “I ain’t left nothing in Africa,” that’s what you say. Why, you left your mind in Africa.
See you tonight.
Today we return to the most controversial part of Malcolm El Haji Malik Shabazz's speech 'MESSAGE TO THE GRASS ROOTS'
"Once they formed it, with the white man over it, he promised them and gave them $800,000 to split up between the Big Six; and told them that after the march was over they’d give them $700,000 more. A million and a half dollars — split up between leaders that you’ve been following, going to jail for, crying crocodile tears for. And they’re nothing but Frank James and Jesse James and the what-do-you-call-’em brothers.
[As] soon as they got the setup organized, the white man made available to them top public relations experts; opened the news media across the country at their disposal; and then they begin [sic] to project these Big Six as the leaders of the march. Originally, they weren’t even in the march. You was [sic ] talking this march talk on Hastings Street — Is Hastings Street still here? — on Hasting Street. You was [sic] talking the march talk on Lenox Avenue, and out on — What you call it? — Fillmore Street, and Central Avenue, and 32nd Street and 63rd Street. That’s where the march talk was being talked. But the white man put the Big Six [at the] head of it; made them the march. They became the march. They took it over. And the first move they made after they took it over, they invited Walter Reuther, a white man; they invited a priest, a rabbi, and an old white preacher. Yes, an old white preacher. The same white element that put Kennedy in power — labor, the Catholics, the Jews, and liberal Protestants; [the] same clique that put Kennedy in power, joined the march on Washington.
As we move forward in the struggle for justice for our fallen men, women and children. We pray that the case in Baltimore does not take the turn that was taken in the Michael Brown case. But we must remember that case was against a single WHITE MAN, this case has six assailants and 3 of them are Black and one is a Black Woman. So let's look at what Malcolm has to say in reference to this behavior by Black Police Officers. "Just as the slavemaster of that day used Tom, the house Negro, to keep the field Negroes in check, the same old slavemaster today has Negroes who are nothing but modern Uncle Toms, 20th century Uncle Toms, to keep you and me in check, keep us under control, keep us passive and peaceful and nonviolent. That’s Tom making you nonviolent. It’s like when you go to the dentist, and the man’s going to take your tooth. You’re going to fight him when he starts pulling. So he squirts some stuff in your jaw called novocaine, to make you think they’re not doing anything to you. So you sit there and ’cause you’ve got all of that novocaine in your jaw, you suffer peacefully. Blood running all down your jaw, and you don’t know what’s happening. ’Cause someone has taught you to suffer — peacefully."This is what is happening to us right now today."The white man do the same thing to you in the street, when he want [sic] to put knots on your head and take advantage of you and don’t have to be afraid of your fighting back. To keep you from fighting back, he gets these old religious Uncle Toms to teach you and me, just like novocaine, suffer peacefully. Don’t stop suffering — just suffer peacefully. As Reverend Cleage pointed out, “Let your blood flow In the streets.” This is a shame. And you know he’s a Christian preacher. If it’s a shame to him, you know what it is to me.

To the Africans born in America whose ancestors were forced into slavery, a very wonderful event is occurring. This year in December of 2015 the Tikar family has come together with the villagers and have offered to adopt us into the Tikar Tribes. Some of us have had our DNA tested and found that we are Tikar, our ancestors came from this family. If you do not know your ancestral home and have wanted to belong to an African people, then you have found your family. The Tikar are offering you a way back to your ancestral family. All you have to do is join us in Cameroon, for this festive occasion. You will receive an ancestral name and a piece of land to call your own.
Join US as we welcome Ambassador of the Tikars, Prince Notable Delaure Delwanda
