    Should African Americans Celebrate St. Patrick's Day

    in Culture

    TONIGHT: Listen to The African History Network Show, Thurs., March, 19th, 8:00pm-10:00pm EST (5:00am-7:00pm PST) with host Michael Imhotep.  We’ll also discuss “Should African Americans Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day”.  Call in with your Questions/Comments at 914-338-1375.  


    Around this time of the year you will see St. Patrick’s Day Parades, Kiss Me I’m Irish T-Shirts, Green Beer, Leprechauns, etc.  It is expected that 127 million Americans will spend approximately $4.6 Billion during this St. Patrick’s Day holiday.  One of the strangest things you will see is African Americans participating in this “celebration”.  Do you really know what you are celebrating?  Have you studied the history of St. Patrick’s Day?  Even if you claim that you have Irish Ancestry do you really know what you are celebrating? 


    Did you know that Patrick was not Irish he was British?  Why do we participate in celebrations without knowing what we are participating in?  If you wear Green on St. Patrick’s Day, will you wear Red, Black & Green on African Liberation Day?  If not, why not?  I’m pretty sure you have more African Ancestry than Irish Ancestry. 


    Malaika Cooper of “The Baltimore Natural Hair Care Expo” and Relationship Expert C.J. Gross will join us to talk about this upcoming Natural Hair Care Expo in Baltimore, Sat. March 21st & Sun. March 22nd.  Don’t miss workshops by Michael Imhotep of The African History Network Show dealing with “Great Black Women In History”.  Visit www.AfricanHistoryNetwork.com.

    American White History Month - South African Series

    in Politics Conservative

    Join American White History Month this Thursday 5th March, 2015 with host Karin Smith and two great guests.


    Cuan Elgin "A True Story of South Africa - BULALA".  


    Deeply researched, the Scottish-Irish-descended South African-born author travelled over 15,500 miles [25,000 km.] across South Africa to every historical site mentioned in the narrative, in his first-hand investigative research. You will learn, laugh, and cry—but more importantly, understand the actual events which transpired in this controversial, southern-most African nation, without the bias of the media or the pressured slant of special-interest groups. 


    Joining us will be Don Deon  - 


    I started the Southern African Commonwealth (Bondstaat) initiative which aims to reconnect all Southern Africa’s diverse people with their heritage and culture and traditions.  The first step in this for the Afrikaner people was to setup the SAUK Nuus news website and facebook page. This is vital to give the people their identity back and also crucial in the fight against all the forms of genocide.


    I am fighting for TRUE diversity, TRUE multiculturism and True Independence in South Africa for the minorities, and worldwide...


    This will be a very informative and entertaining show - so dial in, call in - we look forward to hearing from you

    African-American Leaders A-Z- By Dr. Andrea Berry

    in Spirituality

    Dr. Berry currently serves as an instructional Supervisor of Equity, Diversity, Special Programs, and English Language Learners on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Dr. Berry-Opher is an educator with 19 years of experience in a variety of capacities such as teacher, assistant principal, principal, district level supervisor, adjunct college professor, presenter, etc.


    Dr. Berry is a proven collaborative administrator who demonstrates expertise in empowering teaching staffs, successful implementation of professional learning communities through book studies and action research, influencing cultural diversity awareness, and providing high quality teacher professional development. 


    In the journey of life, Dr. Berry strives to make educating youth a smooth process. She advocates, mentors, collaborates, celebrates and works tirelessly to help what one of her mentors calls, “Our Most Valuable Resource, CHILDREN.”


    A vital stitch in the education of a child is their knowledge base about heritage. Although we pay tribute to African American History in the month of February, it is imperative for students to see the impact role models of color have on their daily life and existence year round. Providing exposure to the unsung African American leaders in our country is the ultimate educational gift to children and my humble attempt to recognize greatness in the African American community.
