    Family today is the day we honor the Sisters.

    The Black Woman - The Mother of civilization.


    Oftentimes our woman especially don't get he credit they deserve. Not only for giving birth to a Nation, but for all the amazing contributions throughout our history.

    For holding our families together, Sacrificing, and at times even being on the front lines fighting the enemy when their wasn't strong men present.


    Being that we live in a Western culture, where the woman is naturally looked at as being "lesser" than her man, we cannot fall victim to this way of thinking.

    You probably know as well as I do, that in Africa we had no fear of allowing our women to lead and take the throne.


    And that was proven time and time again throughout the great dynastic periods spoken of
    here.


    So many of us either don't know or forget this important part of our-story and our young woman especially have no idea that they come from a powerful, powerful line of female leaders.

    Self esteem is a major issue with young sisters, and w need to give them the documents and wisdom we have.


    They only know what they see and what they've been taught.


    We can't depend on the schools to tell them who Yaa Asantewaa, Queen Nzinga, and/or Queen Tiye was.


    It just won't happen.



    Religious organizations for the most part are no different, woman are normally looked at as playing 2nd fiddle to the man and very rarely if ever has any top positions of authority in these so called houses of worship.


    This is Not our way, but the way we have adopted from those that brought us here against our will.

    It has been said, that when you know better, you gotta show better.


    Meaning each 1 - Teach 1 (at least)


    But those that don't know and have accepted these crippling beliefs, they cannot be blamed for what they know not.

    • Boycott Mentality
      Tariq

      Hide nothing from the masses of our people. Tell no lies. Expose lies whenever they are told. Mask no difficulties, mistakes, failures. Claim no easy victories –Cabral

      Boycotting is a form of dissent which is visible and immediate. It appears to bring instant results for those without power. But does boycotting work? Is it the only means of dissent for African people? Is marching and singing in 2019 the most progressive form of being heard? Where is our economic muscle when all

    • OPINION: The unsettling meanings of coloured identity and why it should be challenged
      AYAN

      Family I ran across this post and I just like to share this with you if have the time give me your comment on this blog.

      I was born with the sand of the Namib Desert between my toes and grew up in Upington, where the mighty Orange River flows a stone's throw away from the town centre.

      I remember as a teenager how excited my cousins and I would get when our neighbours across the street had family visiting. The reason for our enthusiasm would often be because the visitors

    • Did You Know that “Negro History Week”was the Root of “Black History Month”?
      The Wiser


      The month of February is considered “Black History Month” across the United States. But it had a much earlier predecessor called “Negro History Week”. This recognition was the brainchild of an African-American historian, Dr. Carter G. Woodson. He is considered by many to be the “Father of Black History.”

      Carter Godwin Woodson was born on December 19, 1875 in New Canton, VA. He was the fourth of seven children.

      As a young child growing up, he worked as a sharecropper...

    • The Resurgence of New Afrikan Identity
      Imhotep1
      I am not colored, Negro, Afro-American, African-American, nor any other identifying appellation or abstract term historically imposed upon me.

      Nor are people that look like me. Black people in the U.S. are “New Afrikans,” and I’m going to tell you why.


      In 1968 at a conference convened by the Malcolm X Society and the Group on Advanced Leadership (GOAL) in Detroit, more than 500 black nationalists - including Queen Mother Moore, Betty Shabazz, Jamil al-Amin, Maulana...

    • Race in Ancient Egypt: Black Pharaohs?
      Tariq

      Race in Ancient Egypt is one of the most polarized ongoing historical debates. But very few give the discussion a progressive treatment. And any treatment of this contentious discussion must discuss contemporary politics, sociology and historical reality thosands of years ago without contaminating it with our 21st century politics.

      As people of African descent and others assert their definitions of self in an effort to create a national consciousness, European academia belittles

    • 8 Signs You’re a Slave Instead of an Employee
      The Wiser
      Literal slavery is a horrible practice that still persists into the modern age. But, I want to talk about another form of human exploitation–employment slavery, which can also ruin a person’s life. Generally, I consider this a self-inflicted slavery because it’s ultimately a person’s choice to work under such conditions—but I also understand that brainwashing can occur, creating the illusion that there’s no way out.



      Slavery (in general) exists because of the inclination
