    1. Darren Walker, BEAN founder
    Having been a business man from a very early age, Darren Walker became frustrated with the challenges of limited access to people and resources that could advance his business and personal endeavors. Thus, Walker created Black Economic Advancement Network (BEAN) to provide a way for African Americans to connect with business owners and capital to make it easier to identify and support each other’s businesses.


    At age 25, Walker—together with his friend and partner Dustin Young established GOES (Green Opportunities Energy Solutions). GOES was the first among the companies then incubating at Moore Norman Technology Center whose sales exceeded $1 million in its first year of operation at the Business Development Center where it started.

    Entretien avec Hulo Guillabert Actrice Culturelle & Activiste Panafrikaine

    in Lifestyle

    Radio Nyabinghi Intercontinentale (R.N.I) se veut être la caisse de résonance d'une rumeur aujourd'hui grandissante. Longtemps professée & longtemps prophétisée. Un bourdonnement sourd, impérieux qui bientôt se transformera en tumulte impétueux. Inexorablement.


    Il s'agit du rapatriement des Afro-descendants. Des membres de la Diaspora Noire disséminés à travers l'occident & au-delà. Ceux pour qui l'appel du plus beau Continent retentit & s'exerce en eux comme une attraction magnétique. Comme un devoir, une nécessité, comme un vide à combler, une raison d'être. Ceux bien inspirés qui pressentent l'implacable marche de l'Histoire se dérouler sous leur yeux & qui pour rien au monde ne la laissera se jouer sans eux. Actifs pas passifs. Victorieux pas victimes.


    Radio Nyabinghi Intercontinentale (R.N.I) veut œuvrer avec réalisme & pragmatisme à donner encore plus d'écho à cet état de fait. A répondre aux interrogations nombreuses, aux doutes & à l'incertitude. A donner un modus operandi. A travers l'expérience concrète de ses animateurs, de ses thèmes abordés, de ses invités & de l'Irrépressible Culture Noire.

    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!

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:


    Diaspora Group Commends House Chairman for Urging Investigation into Rwandan Human Rights Abuses


    At Hearing, Rep. Chris Smith Questions President Kagame’s Role in Killings, Disappearances


    WASHINGTON, DC (May 20, 2015) – Democracy in Rwanda Now (DIRN), a non-profit, non-governmental organization, on Wednesday praised the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights and International Organizations for urging an investigation into Rwanda’s human rights record and President Paul Kagame’s role in a series of troubling events including killings and disappearances of dissidents.


    Subcommittee Chairman Chris Smith (R-NJ) called some of the recent reported abuses “serious crimes” and said the international community needs to take a “very aggressive look” into what President Paul Kagame’s complicity was in the disappearances and killings of dissidents. “If there are death squads being deployed to kill the diaspora and political opponents...we need to get to the bottom of this,” he said.


    The chairman made the remarks at a hearing Wednesday called “Developments in Rwanda,” which he called to examine “persistent, credible reports of human rights abuses by this government both inside and outside the country,” and “how this reality impacts US policy toward Rwanda.”


    “Any investigation into the assassinations, attempted assassinations and disappearances of Kagame dissidents is welcome news,” said one of the hearing witnesses David Himbara, a former top economic aide to Kagame and coordinator for the North American branch of DIRN. “I applaud Chairman Smith and Ranking Member Karen Bass for their leadership on this very serious and important issue. The Rwandan people deserve to live in a free and democratic society without fear

The screenings explore web content focusing on this generation’s concerns and curiosity about the continued exploitation of representations of people of color in mainstream media, as well as utilizing digital media as a tool to promote dialogue around today’s hot topics: homophobia, navigating gender identity, and sexual exploration.

    Guests:
    1.As a youth living in Los Angeles, CA, Akubundu Amazu-Lott experienced first hand being profiled by the police. On at least a half dozen occasions he was pulled over at gun-point by the LAPD.

There he participated in sports (football) and received his B.S. in Business Administration and his Master of Urban Planning. He joined the All-African People’s Revolutionary Party (AAPRP) in 1979 and is currently on the Central Committee and the California Chapter Coordinating Council. It is through his extensive study of Pan-Africanism and the struggles of oppressed people globally that he remains motivated to work for positive change. He has been an adjunct professor at SJSU for the past seven years in the African-American Studies Department.
