In commemoration of Dr. Carter G. Woodson’s vision to always remember our ancestors, The Black Reality Think Tank radio program welcomes author and literary consultant Ms. Heddy Keith to our broadcast as we discuss the life and work of Dr. Toni Morrison.

Her first novel, The Bluest Eye, was published in 1970. The critically acclaimed Song of Solomon (1977) brought her national attention and won the National Book Critics Circle Award. In 1988, Morrison won the Pulitzer Prize for Beloved (1987); she gained worldwide recognition when she was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1993.

Our guest and community panel will discuss how Dr. Morrison used fiction to highlight the historical journey of African people in America.

WHY WE MUST NOT FORGET PAUL ROBESON

Paul Leroy Robeson was an American bass-baritone concert artist, stage and film actor who became famous both for his cultural accomplishments and for his political activism. Educated at Rutgers College and Columbia University, he was also a star athlete in his youth. He also studied Swahili and linguistics at the School of Oriental and African Studies, London in 1934. His political activities began with his involvement with unemployed workers and anti-imperialist students whom he met in Britain and continued with support for the Loyalist cause in the Spanish Civil War and his opposition to fascism. In the United States, he also became active in the Civil Rights Movement and other social justice campaigns.

The Black Reality Think Tank radio program and our panel of community conversationalist will review the life, work, and times of this truly “Renaissance Man.”

WHAT IS THE ECONOMIC and POLITICAL VISION FOR THE AFRICAN AMERICAN COMMUNITY IN 2020?

The Honorable Elijah Muhammad in his book “Message To The Blackman” states,

“The devils reared the poor so-called Negroes for 400 years and put fear in them when they were babies. They (the devils) kept them apart from their own kind coming in from abroad, so as to deprive them of any knowledge other than what he (the devil) has taught them.”

The book of Genesis in the Old Testament states, Genesis 15:13-14

13 Then the Lord said to him, “Know for certain that for four hundred years your descendants will be strangers in a country not their own and that they will be enslaved and mistreated there. 14 But I will punish the nation they serve as slaves, and afterward they will come out with great possessions.”

Do we have the 2020 vision to understand these passages and build/heal our community?

The Black Reality Think Tank community panel will explore our concept of foresight, vision and clear thinking on tonight’s program.

The program host is Dr. William Rogers.

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.
