    in Education

    Join The Gist of Freedom as welcome author Dr. Tyrene Wright,  “Booker T. Washington And Africa, The Making of A Pan Africanist.”


    A Booker T. Washington scholar, Dr. Wright takes a different approach to examining Washington and the Tuskegee model. Her research focuses on Booker T. Washington's role and relationship with African people and Africa which argues that Washington's role was to promote sustainable agriculture, and economic models amongst African communities worldwide. She is the author of Booker T. Washington and Africa (forthcoming) which is the first book of its kind, and covers two international policy cases: The Liberian Crisis, and the African Exclusion Measure, where Washington proves himself to be an adept Pan-Africanist and negotiator for African people.


     This book establishes that Booker T. Washington belongs amongst the canon of Pan Africanists that shaped the 20th century, therefore the discourse and narrative on Booker T. Washington has shifted.  CLICK FOR MORE

    Celebrating the 1st International Day of Yoga - Minister N.K. Mishra

    in Self Help

    Minister N K Mishra, Minister for Personnel & Community Affairs at the Embassy of India, joins Sister Jenna to discuss the International Day of Yoga.


    In addressing the UN General Assembly on September 27, 2014, India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi proposed an International Day of Yoga and said, "Yoga is an invaluable gift of India's ancient tradition. It embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfillment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and well-being. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and the nature. By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help us deal with climate change. Let us work towards adopting an International Yoga Day."


    The subsequent resolution introduced by India, received unprecedented support from 175 countries and was unanimously adopted. June 21, 2015, will celebrate the 1st International Day of Yoga. Visit www.indianembassy.org & http://idayofyoga.org. 


    Join us in Washington, DC, for Yoga for Harmony and Peace, an event organized by Friends of Yoga, in partnership with the Embassy of India to celebrate the International Day of Yoga on June 21st from 8:30 am to 11:30 am at the Sylvan Theater - National Mall, Washington, DC.  Info & Register at http://friendsofyogausa.org
