We need to see more of this… especially the babies…
The nation’s largest slave revolt took place upriver from New Orleans, beginning 208 years ago along the German Coast area of St. John the Baptist Parish. But it remains unknown to many people, even in south Louisiana. An event this weekend could help change that. Continue reading

Of course coming from the Wall Street Journal, there is propaganda and YT passing the blame but shit is real…
This August marked 400 years since the first documented enslaved Africans arrived in the U.S. In 1619, a ship reached the Jamestown settlement in the colony of Virginia, carrying “some 20 and odd Negroes” who were kidnapped from their villages in present-day Angola. The anniversary coincides with a controversial debate in the U.S. about whether the country owes reparations to the descendants of slaves as compensation for centuries of injustice and inequality. It is a moment for posing questions of historic guilt and responsibility.
All ghettos and favelas are designed to kill us off without most of the public noticing…. as in Brazil as it is in AmeriKKKa….
When I first starting researching the history of brothers and sisters in Brazil at the end of the 20th century and beginning of the 21st, I honestly thought titles of books by the great Abdias do Nascimento such as Brazil: Mixture or Massacre or The Genocide of the black Brazilian were exaggerations. Now, nearly two decades later, I see these books as the grim prognosis of a reality that has been in the works for more than a century. The more I dig, the more I find evidence that the extinction of the black Brazilian is an ongoing work in progress. Continue reading
Been tellin folks about the Boule for a minute… but here read someone else’s take since no one pay me no mind…
Over the course of our history as Black people, as Africans; we have had to deal with lots of huddles, trials, attacks, betrayals, and backstabbing. And while much of this has come from the Caucasian race, and other pale races, a good number of our injuries have been inflicted by our own.
Now we understand that it might be a hard pill to swallow for many Black people, but the truth remains that we have had our brethren betray us, over economic gains, and a place under the table of white supremacy – a place for dogs. Continue reading
After all the hubbub about the Watchmen series premiere and it’s depiction of the Tulsa Black Wall Street Massacre, I figured folks needed to know it and Rosewood were not isolated events….
Atlanta Race Riot (1906)
When the Civil War ended, African-Americans in Atlanta began entering the realm of politics, establishing businesses and gaining notoriety as a social class. Increasing tensions between Black wage-workers and the white elite began to grow and ill-feelings were further exacerbated when Blacks gained more civil rights, including the right to vote.

The real heros behind the white abolitionist….
Every October, on the anniversary of the raid that helped fuel the Civil War, much attention is focused on Brown, not on his African American soldiers. Continue reading
It’s not history when what you learn is HIS-story….
The fight to reclaim the pride and heritage of the Black man has been a tedious, but yet fulfilling battle. After hundreds of years of lies told about the Black man, nature has made it possible that we are at a great reawakening and that facts about ancient Black civilizations are exposed daily.
The knowledge which we have gathered on the history of Black civilizations has set the Black race on a new path – a path to pride and self-awareness. Which African school would have ever thought Africans this secretes? None actually. That Is because, even till date, the curriculum of many African schools is decided by European governments.
