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!

1. Sheila S. Walker Ph.D. and Dinizulu Gene Tinnie, join us to talk about the United Nations General Assembly designation of March 25, as International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade (moved to March 29).

2. Nana Farika, Vice President of WADU will join us to talk about a recent forum in Washington to look at The State of Africa and Its Diaspora (3/20/2016).

3. We close with a conversation with a representative about a special program in Oakland, March 27, to honor the legacy and work of Dr. Mutulu Shakur, Political Prisoners, Prisoner of War. We were looking forward to his release, Feb. 10, 2016, at his recent parole hearing. mutuluriswelcomehere.com

Dr. Mutulu Shakur, Omar Hunter, a member of the New African People’s Organization and the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement is one of the longest held political prisoners of war in US federal detention at this time. Just before this date he was informed that he would only be scheduled to get a hearing for parole on April 4, 2016.
