The New Afrikan Independence Movement needs a psychological revolution. I don’t mean a change in the personal psychologies of those involved. I mean a change in the foundations of political action. Too long have developments been arrested by questions of “How do we convince the youth?” or “How do we acquire and retain recruits?”. The answer is provided by the science of psychology, specifically behavioral psychology and behavioral economics. The bourgeois “overlords” are kicking our ass in reaching the masses not merely because of funding and airplay, but really because of the fact that there appears to be this aversion . . .
Ghana police or koti if that’s your thing, and Rastafarianism don’t mix well. One has peace of mind, and the other is trying to maintain the “peace” through any means. I first took notice of this whilst overhearing the stories of the police raids of this or that rasta house, always a marijuana violation, and always short on the devilish details of what Rastas were up to (probably just meditating or vibing). But really and truly all Ghanaians know that the police, if they were indeed getting paid fairly, had better things to do. In fact all Africans will agree . . .
Until African men and women stop using Eurocentric standards of manhood and womanhood to define ourselves and each other, we will continue to engage as enemies. To become comrades, we must recognize that whiteness has gender specific attacks that target us at points of insecurity in ways that completely destroy our ability to love each other. Nowhere does this play out most evidently than in the never-ending, online “gender wars.” This divide and conquer tactic is not new, but social media has made it increasingly profitable to pit Black women and men against each other publicly for the world to . . .
A Speech Delivered at a Black House Kollective (BHK)Veronica Zondeni Sobukwe Memorial lecture and Winter School Introduction The 27th of July 2023 marked the 96th Anniversary of the birth of one of the revolutionary daughters of the Azania revolution, Zondeni Veronica Sobukwe, a towering yet humble Africanist. It is the 7th year since Black House Kollective Soweto (BHK) took it upon itself to memorialize the Mother of Azania. The patriarchal historical writing in South Africa has not been kind to her like many other women in the Azanian liberation struggle. In many instances, that form of historic writing has relegated . . .
WHO IS MAWINA KOUYATE? A name synonymous with Mother Africa was born in Boston, Massachusetts in the United States of America on 31st March 1941. For 40 good years of her life, Comrade Mawina Kouyate had been an exemplary revolutionary in international, Pan-African and community movements. Comrade Mawina’s early work began in organising women around tenants and welfare rights in her birthplace of Boston. Comrade Mawina attained the height of her revolutionary work when she joined the All-African people’s Revolutionary Party (A-APRP) in the 1970s, after having been influenced by the work, recruitment and organisation of the Party militants led . . .
The U.S. recently deployed troops to Peru to shore-up the coup in that country, followed by the deployment of troops to Ecuador and the bizarre AFRICOM plan to insert Kenya and Rwanda forces all the way from Africa to Haiti to support the illegitimate Ariel Henry puppet government in that nation. White supremacy in Black face. This is madness, but desperate madness! Experiencing their worst nightmare, the French are in the process of being expelled from their African empire. They have desperately drawn the line in Niger, where they had been forced to redeploy their troops after being expelled from . . .
To make fundamental change in one’s environment requires fundamental internal change. The self-destructive, anti-Afrikan “programming” that is forced upon Afrikans (blacks) in America (AnAs) must be “turned around” to self-affirming, Afrikan Centered deep thought such that mass organization and institution building is normalized into an ongoing pan-Afrikan project. Difficulties encountered in solving tough problems usually result from the lack of specific Afrikan-centered knowledge, values and skills (AKVS). Cultivation of AKVS requires the creation of the institutions necessary to bring about the internal revolution that will free Afrikan Consciousness from anti-Afrikan brainwashing and indoctrination. Today, European (white) Republican elected officials aka . . .
