THIS IS A PRE-RECORDED SHOW
Bro. LASANA MACK was found dead in MD last week.
The "official" explanation for death was suicide, but NO ONE I know believes that.
This is a little tribute show we are putting together for him to widen his memory & legacy to those who may not have known of all the MAGNIFICENT things he was a part of and doing.
At the 25th anniversary of the SANKOFA CONFERENCE here in dc in 2014, Bro. LASANA gave a presentation (with Bro. Shango Taha) called ANALYSIS OF ECONOMIC SYSTEMS--WHAT IS THE BEST APPROACH FOR AFRIKAN PEOPLE'S ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT.
LASANA MACK was also a spoken wordsmith & founded the spoken word/neo-soul group called BLACKNOTES.
So in our tribute to this STRONG BROTHER, we are sharing his SANKOFA CONFERENCE presentation & interspercing it w/ 3 BLACKNOTES selections:
1st-BLACKNOTES LIVE--FELA'S GROOVE & AFRO BLUE
Within the talk, you will hear him speak of an organization he founded & was Executive Director of called APPEAL INC, which stood for ASSOCIATION of PEOPLE for PAN AFRIKANIST ECONOMIC ADVANCEMENT thru LEVERAGE.
