    Greetings Phamily

    I wanted to share with you a sample chapter from my latest book The Bakala of North America: The Living Suns of Vitality. This is Appendix C titled Simultaneous Validity. I think this is very instructive for those who may think that it is unAfrican to come up with your own identity and spiritual concepts. I hope this sample helps to reformulate this notion. Here is the link for the sample chapter:

    great piece of work, Asar. Bringing it all together. I can't wait to read the book. I have been saying that the future of the "nationalist" movement lies with the youth. Hip hop is misunderstood by not only older folks, but most young people too. Hip hop is at the vanguard of the movement globally for a more just world. Incorporating the cosmology of the ancestors with hip hop is quite brilliant. Kudos, brother.

    are you familiar with what's going on in Cuba and Brazil regarding blackness and hip hop?

    Global Voices . ESTILO HIP HOP | PBS
    http://www.pbs.org/itvs/globalvoices/est...
    ESTILO HIP HOP chronicles the lives of three hip hop enthusiasts from Brazil, Chile and Cuba who firmly believe that hip hop can change the world. These three inspirational leaders mobilize young people to become politically active. ...


    I know your focus is on identity and African Americans, but just wanted to share that it's happening - actually the folks in this film are all "African Americans" - globally.

    I am unfamiliar with the Brazilian Black Hip Hop movement. Will be something I look forward to engaging in the near future.
