We continue our discussion on Ampim's critique of the LECTURE MODEL.
We will share how he feels SNCC is to credit(blame) for our present (over)use of the LECTURE MODEL & walk through the arguments FOR and AGAINST the LECTURE MODEL. (on the against side, we shall peer into Ampim's M.E.S. observations--& I am sure, you the listening audience may also have some items to share here as well)
Do we TALK too damn much?
Have all the decades of lecturing positively changed the conditions of stolen Afrikans ?
Are there any better ways to address the myriad problems facing the global Afrikan community?
What is the 11th Commandment & do we still follow it today?
Professor & primary researcher Manu Ampim in 1993 authored the book TOWARD BLACK COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT: MOVING BEYOND THE LIMITATIONS OF THE LECTURE MODEL & was basically whiteballed from the upper echelons of the Africentric comminuty.
He calls on the carpet the limitations of the Lecture model...goes through its history & talks about when it was effective. Then he discusses how it went awry & fully exposes an alternative to 'talking all the damn time', his WORKSHOP MODEL.
Everything we don't fully touch on tonight on this CRUCIAL talk, we WILL have multiple parts to conclude it properly.
