Currently, we have a revolutionary book drive designed to get people to send revolutionary literature like Walter Rodney's book to our sister Pan-African party in Zimbabwe, but most people who claim to support African self-determination would never consider supporting such a project. To them, our independence stops at the point of what doesn't center them and/or feed into their fantasies for how progress is made despite the realities that directly contradict their vision
Over the last few years, especially since the rise of the Black Lives Matter Movement throughout the U.S. Europe, Central, South America, the Caribbean, and even Africa, it has become common place in community spaces to hear people from all backgrounds say things like “listen to POC (people of color, or we say colonized people)” or “respect POC” or “respect African (Black) women”, etc. Unfortunately, in this bourgeoisie dominated world – meaning anything that doesn’t have a specific and tested commitment to the masses of people in humanity is automatically going to represent the interests of the ruling capitalist classes – these phrases, beyond their catchiness, have no concrete basis from which to evaluate how those objectives being yelled out are actually accomplished.
I am currently listening to this audio book after listening to "How Europe Underdeveloped Africa" and other serious Black history. We have the answers within us. We have the skills. We can take back the control over our lives. This has lead me to call for an offsite to do visionary planning BUFU while destressing and relaxing;"Sankofa 2020: A Juneteenth Celebration with a Black Space Healing", in Vanales Valley, Cuba to heal from the on going trauma we have experienced here in Sac.,and across the nation - to call for the planning of 7 generations into the future and the re-establishment of "Black Wall Street". Join me family if you are sick and tired of being tired and sick of it all. https://altruvistas.com/juneteenth-the-power-of-sankofa.../
