    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!

    Entretien avec Kizo Bomaye Fondateur du No Joke & President d Hope4Congo

    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.

    From Grexit Unto Grexodus

    in Current Events

    The Grexodus is real.  It has been triggered by a financial crisis.  So will yours.


     


    The Greek diaspora is massive – proportionally greater even than the British.  The free movement of people is a hallmark of any progressive civilisation.  But when austerity measures have cast more than half of young people into unemployment, the loss of more than 150,000 graduates from a population where only five million are available to contribute to national wellbeing does not bode well for the future.


    The figures are stark.  Classically just over half the Greek population is not available to work; this proportion of children, pensioners and those in poor health is little different to other countries.  So, of around 11 million people, the entire economy must be supported by around five million – but only 3.6 million Greeks are currently employed.  1.4 million are without work. Nearly half of those (0.64m) are aged less than 35 years.


    Estimates of the scale of the Greek exodus vary.  Some counts suggest that 75% of the 200,000 emigrants since 2010 are graduates – a brain drain that hardly encourages investment in new start-up enterprises.  Add to that the lack of bank funding for small businesses and the ever-tightening noose of welfare cuts, and it’s no surprise that well-educated young people are flying out.


    Grexodus, not Grexit: the Greater Greek Tragedy

    Sony Allen, President of National Association of Seadogs, Nigerian in Japan

    in Education

    We are honored to reach the president of NAS , Mr. Allen Omoruyi Sonny.  He leads approximately 1000 Nigerians living in Japan.  When he was asked “Who is sponsoring the organization?” he answered “ourselves” candidly suggesting the hardship of living in Japan as Nigerians.  As an organization to support women and children in Nigeria, SWACIN is glad to know the Nigerian organization in Japan to say the least, as we have searched them throughout Japan past two years!  He has graduated from University of Bennin, Nigeria, earned BSC (Mathematics)  After working for Ministry of Education in Nigeria for years, he got married to a Japanese woman, and now runs personal computer sales business.  He says, his organization, “National Association of Seadogs (NAS) is a registered Nigerian charitable and humanitarian organization, founded by  a Nigerian playwright and poet, Wole Soyinka and six other students in 1952. Mr. Soyinka was awarded the 1986 Nobel Prize in Literature, the first African to be honored.  It began as a University Campus group but has grown into an international organization with branches in 36 states of Nigeria overseas including Japan, South Africa, UK, Republic of Ireland, USA, The Netherland and Canada. NAS is dedicated to humanitarian and charitable endeavors within Nigeria and whatever society the members find themselves.”

    THE DISPENSATION OF REGATHERING GRACE!

    in Religion

    The WICKED RULERS of this world have taught the people the "doctrine of the GRACE of YAH in so many ways.. ENTIRELY WRONG!"   They have done this seeking to keep ALL PEOPLES of this WORLD in BONDAGE under the SINS of each NATION'S and DENOMINATIONS  DAMNINGLY PARTIAL and POLLUTED MISRULE!  Messiah commanded that HIS DISCIPLES true to the anointing in the HOLY SPIRIT of the MOST HIGH, to dutifully TEACH ALL THINGS!   This MUST be done that WHEREVER OUR PEOPLE are SCATTERED, they may come to REASON TOGETHER as ONE beyond ALL the MISconceits taught in DIASPORA!   Indeed!  That OUR P:EOPLE be RECONCILED as ONE!  Yet this RECONCILIATION is NOT possible wherever the PARTIALITIES of WORLDLY MISRULE are preserved to DE-ceive the MASSES!
     
    IGNORANCE DISRESPECTFUL against DIVINE LAW, is NOT the GRACE GIFT of YAH!    For YAH reveals HIS EXCEEDING WILL, that NO MORE shall OUR PEOPLE be EXPLOITED nor DIVIDED by FOOLISH MISorientations of SELF-RIGHTEOUS CARNAL  PRIDE! (2Thessolonians 2:1-<7-12, Isaiah 14:5, 11:1-4>-12, 40:1-<27-41:4>-<21-42:4>-43:15, 49:1-6 .. Genesis 49:1-<8-12)

    YAH did NOT send forth HIS GIFT in MESSIAH that HIS PEOPLE remain MISguided and DIVIDED under variant LAWLESS MISrule of the RULERS!
