    Wanda's Picks Radio Show: Berkeley World Music Festival

    in Art

    This is a black arts and culture site. We will be exploring the African Diaspora via the writing, performance, both musical and theatrical (film and stage), as well as the visual arts of Africans in the Diaspora and those influenced by these aesthetic forms of expression. I am interested in the political and social ramifications of art on society, specifically movements supported by these artists and their forebearers. It is my claim that the artists are the true revolutionaries, their work honest and filled with raw unedited passion. They are our true heroes. Ashay!

    WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

    Today on BlogTalk Radio the subject of why Katrina is a blessing in disguise. If this storm had not happened attention would not have been called to some of the most atrocious Government actions against Black Americans in the modern history of this country. Which has been reciprocated through out the country and not even recorded in the Public Media outside of the South.  We believe the killing of defenseless Youth began in The state of Florida in Jeb Bush country with the killing of Trayvon Martin in 2012 .  It did not, it began with a Youth in New Orleans a day before Katrina, who was shot in the back by Police, decapitated and burned. His head buried in one place and his body in another. 


    The death of Henry Glover was unlike any other in modern times.  The hate and brutal viciousness of the crime is reminiscent of the Age Of Jim Crow, and was never reported outside of New Orleans.  I promised the people of New Orleans that it would be my mission to let the world know what has happened to them and why.  The people of New Orleans have a unique history of African settlement before the coming of the White Man.

    WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

    Today August 30, the people of New Orleans continued the celebration of those lives taken so abruptly. Not just during the horror of the storm but in the aftermath, who were killed by the police and the national guard. Some of them so badly decomposed from burning, decapitation, and other terrible means that were witnessed by those who stayed. Some voluntarily and others forced to stay behind because of the lack of mobility due to illness, age, or medical conditions too dangerous to leave behind. Some the world witnessed being thrown into the Mississippi River by hospital staff.  The only lives spared were those just left there to die in the storm. Under the orders of George Bush the former president the national guard and military brought in ten thousand body bags to fill, contemplating the total annihilation of the people. This is insane and George Bush needs to be charged with crimes against humanity for his gross neglect and giving such an order presumably left no room for optimism of survivors. But a miracle happened and the people who were blessed to survive, survived through the power of the people's love for one another. Black love saved The People of New Orleans.


    That is what I experienced today as I said farewell to the city of my mothers birth, the Unconditional Love of Black People for one another. The compassion to help one another survive, UMBUTU, I AM BECAUSE YOU ARE.

    WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

    On today August 29, 2015 in Armstrong Park there is a commemoration ceremony that I participated in for those lost in Hurricane Katrina.  It has been the most uplifting part of this day to see sisters pray together from every religion unified in the spirt of love.  This is what Huey struggled so hard to make us see that the spirt of BLACK People must transcend the petty differences in every aspect of life. That racism was a wrong way to live if you were BLACK, that we should not mimic the ways of white people. To hate for the sake of difference only, and creat an environment of hate based on those differences. These are his words and they are in reference to the attitude of one who tried to hijack the Panther Party.


    "When a man is consistent, you at least know what is happening and what to expect.  Stokely says one thing one day and does another thing the next?.....Stokely told me he would support anyone he did not care who if the person were black.  We consider this viewpoint both racist and suicidal." We must learn self love and self respect for ourselves and project that attitude, not an attitude of RIGHT IS MIGHT. These are learned behaviors former slave holders gave us and we need to unlearn this. The idea that every Black Man is a thug or a criminal came from this projected idea and caused the death of many during Katrina who were shot by police and National guard troops. No other race of men has been labeled in such a way as to make the eyes of the world see us as bad people who do not deserve to live. And that is what happened to our people here in New Orleans. They sent 10 thousand body bags because the Government felt it would be easier to let people here die than to save them. It would be easier to seize their land and creat a New Orleans that did not include BLACK ETHNIC communities and rebuild as a White Utopia.
