    The Joshua Generation Network: 2015 The Year of the American Black Woman

    in Women

    2015 has been declared The Year of the American Black Woman.


    The Joshua Generation Network strives to be the build-up and support system and upgirding and upholding of the Black women across the American Diaspora.


    With rare and few support systems in place, we acknowledge our place as women, as Black women, and some of us, even as women of God.


    We uphold the Black woman in her TRUE PLACE in society, as the only women on the planet who are enabled to turn the world topsy-turvy and sit the United States of America on it's RIGHTFUL COURSE in our lives and in the lives of our children and future generations.


    We are feminists who pledge to stand with, beside, and behind our kinsmen and Brothas on this journey to the center of the Earth, and we acknowledge that we are amongst the most powerful of women who can take us there.

    Wanda's Picks Radio Show

    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!

    The Helios Biblios (the book of the sun) Hour / The Trickster Gods

    in Current Events

    Tricksters are among the most entertaining characters in world mythology. Usually male, they delight in breaking rules, boasting, and playing tricks on both humans and gods. Most tricksters are shape-changers who can take any form, though they often appear as animals. Tricksters play a prominent role in African and Native American mythologies. But one of the world's greatest and most interesting trickster figures is not only a god, but a god of high metaphysical content. He is Eshu-Elegbara, one of the orisha, the West African deities that are worshiped in many related forms across African and the African diaspora in the New World.While he embodies many obvious trickster elements-- deceit, humor, lawlessness, sexuality--Eshu-Elegbara is also the god of communication and spiritual language. He is the gatekeeper between the realms of man and god.Black Americans were forced to hide their deities or dress them up in Catholic garb, while whites cut themselves off from all but the most superficial appreciations of those African cultural values that managed to survive.Seth, the Pig, the Ass, is always Playing Games with Others For his own Benefit. Seth was a (Female) Trickster God. Later he is transformed into a Serious, Clever, Mischievous Male Creature, who tries to survive the Dangers and challenges of the world using Trickery and Deceit as a defense. Seth is the God who needs Power to cover his own Fear for the God of the Gods. In the Christian Faith Seth/Pan, the God of Nature, was transformed into the Red Angel of Evil, Lucifer, Satan (Set-Hen).He is the Lord of the Red Sahara Desert, Master of the Thunders Storms, Disorder, Darkness and Warfare. Seth is the Cause of the Change of the Climate that destroyed the Green Sahara, the Garden of Eden. Seth is also the Cause of the Great Deluge.

    Black Family; WE NEED TO WAKE THE HELL UP!!!

    in Culture

    Introduction to a new sound, a new vibration from the Black Community that promotes EYE opening discussion about real life/True Life situations our community is facing today as well as how the past has impacted our today. Four powerful leaders, who were all once Christian leaders, who through time and desire for TRUTH, discovered their true identity and culture, will come together to not only talk about these issues, but will interject real solutions with viable tangible ideas to create a new paradigm for the so-called Black Family in and out of the diaspora. Our goal is to not only return to our TRUE way of life but also to promote self-sufficiency.


    Far too long we, as a people, have held certain subjects as taboo and have kept many secrets in our families that plaque us to this day. We must look at these subjects that divide us as a Nation that keep us blind, death and dumb, (voiceless).  We must also challenge every mainstream ideal up to this point because something is seriously wrong. Truth is our weapon and if we are going to stand a chance against the continual advances of our enemies we must utilize the most powerful weapon ever created, TRUTH!!!


    If you can't deal with the reality of what is really happening to this so called black man/woman, this platform will make your head spin around!!! Join these leaders as they share their experiences and how liberation and freedom feels and see how you can also be part of this new paradigm. We cannot rise if we are afraid to be REAL and HONEST!!!

    A detailed look into the plight of the African Diaspora here in America and throughout the world.


    Upon obtaining his Master's Degree in Social Studies-Citizenship, Jones worked vigorously in the Philadelphia Public School system. As a professor, he also teaches courses in the area of Community Leadership and Humanities. An accomplished lecturer, writer and public speaker, Jones has become a beacon of hope within the community as he strives to continue his focus concerning the improvement of the socio-economic and political conditions of the African born Americans as well as descendants of the African Diaspora. He continues to work with at-risk youths helping them to develop and utilize critical thinking skills through his workshops and lectures.  This show will explore the issues of our times as we continue to expose the obstacles in our way of cultural, political and socio-economical liberation from the clutches of systemic racism white supremacy. As Dr. Neely Fuller once stated, "If you do not understand white supremacy everything else you know will only serve to confuse you."
