An anti-coup mobilization in Sudan

Conversations on the Sudan Coup

Muzan Alneel: ‘I believe it is also becoming clearer to the agents of international powers in Sudan that their “contacts” in the political club are no longer able to control the masses, or even reflect or predict their actual position. We can see them in Khartoum now, reaching out to create new “contacts” in spaces previously too radical for them to acknowledge, whether officially by meeting invitations or the usual tricks of closed meetings, support and “workshops.”’ . . .

Why Did Kwame Ture Move to Africa?

On November 15th, 1998, Kwame Ture (formally Stokely Carmichael) made his physical transition.  I remember where I was when we received the news.  We were at Sacramento State University, early on a Sunday morning, preparing to begin our work study meeting when one of the members came in and made the announcement.  None of us were surprised.  Kwame had been ill with the prostate cancer that eventually took his life for quite some time.  I remember thinking things were about to change for all of us.

Malcolm X and Muhammad Ali with their children - a still from the Netflix documentary Blood Brothers

A Critical Review of “Blood Brothers” on Netflix

The Netflix produced documentary “Blood Brothers – Malcolm X & Muhammad Ali” is the latest example of their efforts to exploit our unwillingness to critically study our own history in ways that would force us to learn to think outside of the paradigms that they provide for us. . . .

The African World is on Fire

When the people flood the streets of Lagos, Bamako, Dakar, or Pretoria to denounce Africom, SARS and Israeli trained police forces, it does not make the nightly news.

Editor of Black Agenda Report and ancestor, Glen Ford

Glen Ford— From Elder To Ancestor

“I’m telling you these stories because that is what elders do, we remember things” Glen Ford It is not uncommon to hear that many Africans were introduced to Glen Ford the moment they became ‘activated’ to move away from the democratic party. That introduction often came by way of The Black Agenda Report where Ford (and others) continuously picked apart the insidious and warmongering nature of the neoliberal party. It is no exaggeration to say that BAR set the tone for understanding that both parties are the same. During an 8-year-wave of overwhelming delirium for Barack Obama, Ford’s analysis was . . .
