    Historic Slavery Site to Host Africans Rising Launch

    Dakar, Senegal – A site internationally renown as a symbol of enslavement will host the launch of an emerging Pan-African movement determined to build a new future for the peoples of Africa.

    As part of its continent-wide launch on 25 May 2017, Africans Rising for Justice, Peace and Dignity will hold a programme of activities on Gorée Island, off the coast of Senegal. This will be one of scores of activities in more than 32 countries, comprising the launch.

  2. As Dr. Amos Wilson said: consciousness is a component of power.

    I truly appreciate Dr. Bolden’s brilliant presentation on Malcolm’s mother, Sister Louise Little and historical/transgenerational trauma.

    Dr. Ball delivers a superb presentation on why communications and propaganda is a critical element of power, particularly at this point in history.

    People have so much access to information now, the threat that clarity of thought/action poses to the power structure is real. So, there has to be confusion, distractions, misinformation, fake news, branding, “there’s nothing real in the world anymore” as the announcer said that day after the Raiders scored on the “holy roller.” Entertainment is the opiate of the masses.

    Of course, the ever prescient Omowale dealt with this subject in a 1964 speech titled “Communications and Reality.” He said: “We are living in a time when image-making has become a science. Someone can create a certain image and then use that image to twist your mind and lead you right up a blind path.”

    I’m adding this to my blogpost titled: “Omowale Malcolm X On American Politics: They’re All Playing The Same Game”
