    in News

    Mr Bowman Lusambo is the National Youth Coordinator of the Movement for Multi Party Democracy (MMD), also popularly known as the MMD Die Hard Youth wing and outspoken on national or party politics. Mr Lusambo is known for his radical stance on issues affecting the youth and has often found himself at odds with the party's top ranking officials, particularly on his stance concerning the embattled party president Dr Nevers Mumba whom he has supported unreservedly. He recently castigated government for not safeguarding certain sectors of the job market for indigenous youth based on the report issued in parliament through a ministerial statement concerning work permits which were issued to foreign workers. Mr Lusambo is our guest on PERSPECTIVES to discuss the plight of the youth in Zambia

    Wanda's Picks Radio Show: State of Black Oakland 2015

    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 forbearers. 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!

    1. State of Black Oakland Organizers Noni Sessions and Turha Ak, join us to talk about the event, Saturday, March 28, 2015, 10-4 at Geoffrey's Inner Circle in Downtown Oakland.

    2. We close with an interview (part 1 of a series) with Mrs. Colia LaFayette Clark, Civil Rights Leader, Veteran Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) Organizer in Selma, Jackson and Montgomery in the early 1960s; Recipient of the Bridge-Crossing Jubilee Freedom Flame Award; Life-long Activist for Black Liberation and Social Justice.

    STATE OF NIGERIA’S UNION

    in Motivation

     


    THIS WEEK’S TOPIC OF DISCUSSION:


    Is Nigeria Heading Towards Deconstruction or Reconstruction?


     


    We are inviting you to join the conversation between Nigerians at home and abroad as we collectively explore the “State of the Nigeria’s Union.” We welcome debates, opinions and analysis from pundits representing all political parties, as well as regional, cultural, and circular perspectives.


    The pressing questions are: Is Nigeria heading towards deconstruction or reconstruction?


    Diaspora Nigerians are among the best and brightest on the world’s stage but they do not have the privilege to vote in Nigeria elections because the Nigerian government does not currently grant voting rights to its citizens abroad.


    It is time for Nigerians worldwide to have a genuine conversation about the country they want. We hope this will provide an opportunity to weigh in on this very important election.


    Join the conversation on AV Teleforums.
    Follow us as we take the conversation to the streets of New York City on Friday night.


    The World is listening!

    Echoing voices from the Belizean diaspora the Hubert Pipersburgh Show

    in Current Events

    The diaspora represent the last bastion for Belize. However, like the rest of the Caribbean Belize remains hostile to its Diaspora and the misguided notion that any other citizens other than those of the commonwealth are suspect to questionable allegiance. Belize must think locally, but act globally. In this age of globalization the citizens as well as the corporations have difficulty in confining themselves to one country. The nations that refuse to comprehend this new phenomenon are condemned to remain backward, underdeveloped and marginal to the tide of progress and prosperity.

    The Ndustry Presents : "The Virgin Cure Movie," Writer and Director, Nyasha Vera

    in Entertainment

    THIS WEEK ON THE NDUSTRY, HOSTS AKIA & NICOLE HOST, INTERNATIONAL LEADER, ADVOCATE AND FILMMAKER, NYASHA VERA! 


    Nyasha Vera is a Zambian born writer and producer of the Virgin Cure Movie. An alumnus of the George Washington University School of Media and Public Affairs, she has over six years of documentary and independent film experience. She has recently begun her Virgin Cure Movie lecture tour in Great Britain at Manchester Metropolitan University and future engagements are currently being set in both the United States and Europe.


    Her childhood was spent in Zambia and Zimbabwe, and her experiences there were the main inspiration for this film. An advocate for both gender equality issues and victims of HIV/AIDS, she has spent the past six years bringing these issues to the mainstream and her film project to fruition. She has worked hand in hand with HIV/AIDS organizations in Africa and the United States, and looks forward to raising awareness to a worldwide audience regarding rape, HIV/AIDS and its devastating aftermath.


    The Virgin Cure Movie features the lives of four broken, young girls who share a common link--they are all victims of child rape in South Africa. An atrocity and common practice in this area, these rapes are thought to be associated with the “virgin cure” myth. They share their painful stories in hopes of preserving the purity and health of other infants and children, in their region and around the world. 


    JOIN US FOR THE INTIMATE INTERVIEW WITH NYASHA.  LISTEN VIA MOBILE/LAN AT 718-766-4964 OR ONLINE AT: WWW.WELCOMETOTHENDUSTRY.COM.
