    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

    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.

      Strategies Your Enemy will Use as Means to Divide and Destroy

      If you have not noticed by now, Black people are at war! Black men and boys are dying. Black women and girls are destroying themselves mentally and physically. If you are a Black African, whether you are from America, South America, in the Caribbean, in the southern part of Asia, or the African continent, you are targeted as the enemy of white supremacy. You must become aware that we are at war. Understand military

    • South Africa: Post Apartheid Truth
      by Tariq
      The job of oppression is never complete until the oppressed become the oppressors.–Paulo Freire.
      When you think about South Africa two issues define its political, economic and cultural landscape; race and wealth disparity. Almost everything else is an outcrop of those two forces. If South Africa is one of the most beautiful and richest countries in Africa it is a beauty and wealth experienced by a minority of the people within its borders. If South Africa has fast internet, beautiful roads, nice game parks, low house prices, luxury malls, all of this is most experience by a minority. The prosperity of South Africa is vulgarly disproportionately divided. Without knowing much about South Africa what do you think when you hear South Africa? Especially in terms of its greatest challenges? I mean there is the legacy of apartheid and the wealth divide between White settlers and the native people. South Africa has made itself the poster child of xenophobia. There is massive crime problem, there is a serious crisis of morals, there are fatherless homes, rampant social issues, there is a massive educational problem, there is electricity issues. Where in the world does "securing our border" factor into all of this?

    • Boycott Mentality
      by 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

      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”?
      by 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
      by 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...
