“Time for an Awakening” with Bro.Elliott, Sunday 6-07-20 guest Black Power Legend, Mukasa DaDa (aka) Willie Ricks
“Time for an Awakening” for Sunday 06/07/2020 at 7:00 PM guest was Prominent Organizer, Activist, Pan African, Leader, in the freedom struggle, Mukasa Dada aka (Willie Ricks). The conversation centered around the experiences of a former field secretary in SNCC , organizing throughout the south, to the early days of the Black Panther Party, along with friend Stokely Carmichael, where he coined the phrase “Black Power.” Reflections and strategies to move forward, from a Black Power Icon.
With protest all over the country centered around historic abuse and murder of Black People, should we be in control of the outcomes? Or should we let other People control the narrative, with agendas that is not in our best interest? This was the discussion in “Free Style Friday”, Open Forum. Information, insights, dialogue, and solutions from a Black Perspective.
Why do we continue to allow them to use us as a sideshow? Making us feel less than others. If black lives matter, start acting like it. Stand up and take a stance. Come join the Black Reality Think Tank Weekend Edition with co-host Lawanda Chambers and Leola Williams where your voices can be heard and you can breathe.
In order to recapture. resurrect, and rescue the minds of African people in America all corners of our community must speak out. This week’s discussion is the voice from the battlefield. The “After Seven Radio Group” interviews a young man whose blood brother’s life was “snuffed out” by a police officer. He turned his anger into action and now has created an organization to support family victims of murdered Black people.
The discussion is navigated by a group of millennial women who gives the listener a “birds-eye view” of the battlefield. Let me say the view is bloody.
IS THIS NECESSARY?
YES, because of Structural Racism: It ALL must FALL!!!
The Black Reality Think Tank will discuss this unfolding phenomenon in America. Our panel of community activists and thinkers will explore the methodology relating to the deconstruction of structural racism.
Structural Racism is a system in which public policies, institutional practices, cultural representations, and other norms work in various, often reinforcing ways to perpetuate racial group inequity. It identifies dimensions of our history and culture that have allowed privileges associated with “whiteness” and disadvantages associated with “color” to endure and adapt over time. Structural racism is not something that a few people or institutions choose to practice. Instead, it has been a feature of the social, economic, and political systems in which we all exist.
