    WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

    EDUCATION PROHIBITED TO AFRCAN AMERICAN SLAVES BY LAW because if we were deemed as sentient beings with all the HUMAN aspects of life eternal we would know how we came to be, when we came to be, what we were then and what we are now.  Eternal in our blackness that we were created in our skins, so no amount of getting on your knees and begging any God for your freedom because it will never come.  We the people of this world will make ourselves free. My thoughts are that at all cost God who is the one who created us all knows what we need, but if we do not initiate a desire to change our conditions they will not change, the creator tells me that our conditions will not change until we ourselves change. Open up our minds to what our leaders taught us and use that knowledge. It is to open the mind to the light of liberty to which we so richly deserve, to lavish ourselves in.  There is no more pleading, there is only Revolution complet and total change of what the Captors want from us, knowledge is the key. Repartions for all the misdeeds done to us is the only solid foundation of Revolution on which we must stand a complete and total change tothe systems of White, Immperalist state under which we are all being forced to live under.  Yet to even Educate our children about Revolution is wrong, this absurd.  This day is the day we set aside to morn our loss of our Ancestors of the Civil War "The Colored Soilders". Denied everthig


    "In the house of Delegates of Virginia, in 1832, Mr. Berry said: "We have, as far as possible, closed every avenue by which light might enter their ( the slaves) minds.  If we could extinguish the capacity to see the light, our work would be completed; they would then be on a level with the beast of the field, and we should be safe! I am certain that we would not do it, if we could find out the process,and that on the plea of necessity."

    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.

    THE COOL CRITICS / MICKEY STEVENSON - DANCING IN THE STREETS

    in Radio

         On the Saturday before MOTHER'S DAY, the cool critics did a show on MOTHERS.  A dedication to mothers.  A week ago because B.B. King died, the Cool Critics did a show on BB King.  Both of the shows are available via BlogTalk to download if you want.


    THIS WEEK, after having William "Mickey" Stevenson on KINGS IN THE MORNING, I was thoroughly impressed of what that man brought to MOTOWN Records.  Mickey Stevenson put Motown Records on the map with his writings, with his producing, with his organization.  I saw his name on records, but I never knew how valuable William "MICKEY" Stevenson was the the Motown foundation. With a great foundation like MOTOWN has become, where do you think, the Commodores, Rick James, The Jackson 5, the many many MANY artists that Berry Gordy Jr & the MOTOWN company created, exposed, manufactured and more would have been had there not been a Motown Music Empire?  Today, you will hear his words, his works and learn some information on a piece of Motown.  Thank you for joining us!

    BITS: THRILLER WRITER STEVE BERRY

    in Entertainment

    What is BITS? We start with the varied definitions of bit. A bit can be a small portion, degree, or amount such as a bit of lint; a bit of luck. On the other hand a bit can be a brief amount of time, a moment as in Wait a bit. Or how about a short scene or episode in a theatrical performance? Or a bit part? Keeping with our theatrical theme, a bit can be an entertainment routine given regularly by a performer; an act. Let’s take our definition of bit further. A bit can be the sharp part of a tool, such as the cutting edge of a knife or ax or a particular kind of action, situation, or behavior as in I got tired of the macho bit. How about a matter being considered as in What's this bit about inflation? The Brits consider a bit a small coin: a three penny bit. BITS for our purposes are an amalgamation of all and is about our bit to contribute and share by bringing you a bit of knowledge as information and entertainment, and as a matter to be considered. So have a listen to our brief, daily dose of BITS where a little knowledge goes a long way brought to you by the artist of communication Halli Casser-Jayne, host of The Halli Casser-Jayne Show,  For more information visit Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.
