    Greetings Phamily

    Please join us this Sunday January 24, 2010 for a riveting and informative discussion on our blog talk radio program Simba Simbi. Our discussion topic is titled Academic vs. Street vs. Good Scholarship. There appears to be an upsurge in the interest of African culture and history in the past year or so due to a flux of debates on videos on YouTube by young people interested in African religious, cultural and political history who deem themselves "street scholars." But has this new interest in African culture spawned a methodology that stunts the growth of the field? How can we take this fire and interest in African culture and history and make it productive? These issues and more will be discussed by our esteemed panel: Professor Manu Ampim, Wayne B. Chandler and Dr. Wesley Muhammad. This is the second installment of our “Advancing the Work” series. You do not want to miss this.

    Brother Chandler was a regular on the GBE in the 80s as well as the Bob Law, "Night Talk".

    I heard on the Gary Null show today,
    that Air America on WLIB 1600 NYC has gone out of business, hopefully some sisters and brothers can secure that precious slot, so that folks , without benfit of the web can once again hear these brothers.

    Please post more often, because our community is in desperate need, and as you see they have been whaking concious raising AM and FM Black radio, left and right all across the nation, and you realy fill the gap left by Gary Byrd, and Bob Law, here in NYC

    Do you have any info on Dr Phil Valentine's analysis of the situation in Haiti, as well as Dr Delbert Blair?

    Asante sana

    The next arena we need to conquer is the web and it is not as hard as you think to start our own radio programs. All we need is a windows or linux server, a streaming flash server, some dedicated ip's and conference software, we are good to go. There is a little bit more, but that's the big stuff.

    I will try my best to continue to bring informative and lively discussions to the people the best way I can: whether written or through dialogue.

    I haven't heard Dr. Phil's analysis on the situation. He was recently on the Nicky Love show discussing it trying to raise money. It is a recent archive so check there on blogtalkradio

    Interesting discussion.

    After purchasing the books of real scholars and thier tapes back in the days and discs in these days in my opinion the only street scholarship that is viable is that left by Clarence X and the lesson book.
    All these other guys are interesting interms of the occult and conspiracy theories; like Dr Phil Valentine,
    Bobby Hemmitt
    Hakim Bey Azzazel Bey

    but IMHO they are confusing to the hip hop generation who are already confused by 20years of nihilistic music, Illuminati tamperimg in atire symbols and music, as well as denatured diet and the imbarbment of chemtrails since birth.
    Street scholrs must come second to the real thing,
    and most folks know who they are and the books they have written

    If folks want to reach the youth, they must and should always have a degree like brother.Attorney Muhammed of the new Black Panther Party, the late Dr. Khalid Muhammed, and Sister Soljah

    these other folks not mentioned , that pop up on the youtube are actually an embarsssment with thier language and deaf dumb and blind, style and mammerisms, that actually hide and turn away folks from recieving the knowledge they are ttrying to provide.

    If one is going to rap rap, use what ever language, mannerisms and gestures they want, but if one wants to communicate, they must get out of theri mental llock up or penitentiary, otherwise they come off like the Wayuns jail house wisdom cat on living color

    Spend some time in the streets of Harlem and East New York, Brckner Blvd, and Sutphin Blvd in Queens.

    Listen to how immortal Technique expresses himself, or professor Griff, this si waht the young folks are tracted to,
    and if anything that kind of civilization leads to the elder True scholars who have taken the time to do thier homework.

    Dr Sebi was not a reader, but he was a scholar non the less

    Dr Clakrke never recieved any college degree that was not honorary, but he was a master scholar none the less

    you can wrap a gold bar, in a brown paper bag that was holding chitlins pout the frig for 4 days, but who would see any value in that from apearances,

    just give the person the gold, period without all that what not and what not.

    If a man is on his knees and you get on your knees to talk to him, when will he ever raise up?
