IF YOU THINK THE SYSTEM of CHATTEL SLAVERY in AMERICA WAS JUST ABOUT ECONOMICS; THEN YOU ARE MISSING THE BOAT.
In his book, Between the World and Me,
Ta-Nehisi Coates states “You must resist the common urge toward the comforting narrative of divine law, toward fairy tales that imply some irrepressible justice. The enslaved were not bricks in your road, and their lives were not chapters in your redemptive history. They were people turned to fuel for the American machine. Enslavement was not destined to end, and it is wrong to claim our present circumstance—no matter how improved—as the redemption for the lives of people who never asked for the posthumous, untouchable glory of dying for their children. Our triumphs can never compensate for this.”
The Black Reality Think Tank will discuss many of the “foundational bricks” supporting the enslavement of African people in America. Host
Dr. William Rogers and Co-host Ms. Bonissiwa Ayan.
The Black Reality Think Tank will recall many of the fine points relating to the history of classical African culture on tonight’s broadcast. As we. deconstruct and resurrect our minds from the “dark nights” of bondage and captivity, it is good to recall “from whence we came” so that we can retrieve our lostness and restore our African Ethos.
