DECONSTRUCTING DOLEMITE, THE MACK, SUPERFLY, AND THEIR IMAGES IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY.

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.

LET’S NOT ONLY CELEBRATE KWANZAA BUT ALSO LET’S PRACTICE AND LIVE IT!!!

Tonight on the Black Reality Think Tank radio program, we will discuss methods on ways to make this practice a REALITY.

Kwanzaa is an African-American and Pan-African holiday that celebrates family, community, and culture. It is observed from December 26 through January 1 and its origins may be found in the first harvest celebrations of Africa, from which this holiday takes its name. Kwanzaa is derived from the phrase, “matunda ya kwanza,” which means “first fruits” in Swahili, a Pan-African tongue that is the most widely spoken language of Africa. The first-fruits celebrations are recorded in African history dating back to Ancient Egypt and Nubia, with references, both ancient and modern, appearing in other classical African civilizations, such as Ashantiland and Yorubaland, and among societies as large as empires…
Kwanzaa was conceived and developed in 1966 by Dr. Maulana Ron Karenga, an author, and scholar-activist who stresses the need to preserve, continually revitalize and promote African American culture.

POLITICS WITHOUT ECONOMICS IS LIKE A SYMBOL WITHOUT SUBSTANCE. Malcolm X

African American communities throughout the nation are preparing for a season of electoral politics. What are the outcome expectations for the African American community? How does the community ensure it’s agenda is considered?

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.

REMEMBERING CLASSICAL AFRICAN CIVILIZATION

The Black Reality Think Tank will recall many of the fine points relating to the history of classical African culture on tonight’s broadcast.
