If you are of African Decent should you embrace the title African American. Should we embrace the name given to us by those who enslaved our Ancestors and continue to oppress us, or should we identify with the title "Black People" despite the definition of the word Black. I identify with the name "Nubian" I welcome your reply to this thread. I would like to know which name you identify with and why. I will also have a Blogtalk program today on this subject. You are welcome to listen in or call in. The date and time is posted below. Peace

Black and I'm Proud

I am Black..I respect my African identity, however, I am mindful that I was not raised on African cuisine, music, dance and dress styles, customs and family dynamics/traditions nor do I speak or understand the native language or know my African ancestors and elders firsthand.

I recently wrote a book on this topic titled The Bakala of North America - The Living Suns of Vitality: In Search of a Meaningful Name for African Americans. I hope all of you would support this work, read its content and dialogue amongst yourselves about the complexities of this subject. I have suggested, by mining many African languages, the name Bakala to represent the descendants of enslaved Bamalela (African) people in the U.S.

I will try to call in to your show so we can discuss this further. This topic is right on time.

You can find out more about the book here: http://www.***************/index.ph...is-now-released&catid=1:latest-news&Itemid=64

I know this is my first status update since 2020 begin, but all of us agree that 2020 delivered a low-blow
to each of us with the miscellaneous events we have recently seen which brought all of us great displeasure.
