These iconic images have plagued the African American community in the same manner as the Sambo, Coon, Jim Crow, and minstrel acts did during the early years of American life. Where does this behavior originate? Why does it still exist? Why is it still popular in certain areas of the community? Who suffers the most from these demeaning images.
these and other questions will be explored by the community panel of the Black Reality Think Tank radio program on Tuesday evening 1/7/20 at 8 pm eastern time.Post Views: 761

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

What was the “Negro Question?” What suggestions do our ancestors and African minds offer to correct the miseducation of African people? Tonight’s discussion will embrace many of these questions.Post Views: 875
