    :roll: :roll: :roll: Hey family! Yet another esteemed revolutionary scholar has agreed to grace us with his presence here at Destee's place! Mr. Mwalimu Baruti will appear in voice video chat on Tuesday, July 11, 2006 @ 9 pm ET. Mr. Baruti is an educator who brings with him years of research from a sociohistorical perspective that indeed challenges traditional thinking about the empowerment of Black/African people. I've had the pleasure of reading much of his material and would like to share some of his insight here with those who may not be familiar with the brother's work. The following links include some articles he has written and a direct connection to his own site where more of his materials and information may be obtained:

    The first five links are articles which cover specific subject matter, while the last is Mr. Baruti's own site. To ensure that the session goes as smoothly as possible and to limit the chances that your questions may go unanswered, please read each of the links carefully and form whatever questions you may have from each section and pm them to me by no later than this weekend---late Saturday or early Sunday. Please be sure to indicate which article the questions come from.....it will help me to merge common questions as quickly as possible. If you have questions....holler at me. Meanwhile....happy reading!! :D

    I Love this Site!

    This is TREMENDOUS news!

    Baruti is the truth!

    I have to thank Brother Lazarus for recommending Baruti's wisdom to me last year, and sister Lioness and whoever else is responsible for organizing his coming to Destee.

    The professor has had a profound influence on the way I conduct my classes and on me as a whole. Close to a decade ago, at Morehouse, he instructed "Blacks and the Family." But he managed to always begin each class with a question from us, and work in the essentials as he saw them. Very receptive, and extremely insightful and objective. He and Bun (York's right hand) have been my favorite teachers ever.
    The thing I recall most was that each class, there would be a different quote on the board. I saved them all and have since added to them. I do the same with my class now (although it's a bit more difficult with 5th graders ;) ). The quote in my sig I originally received from him. A great man, role model, and a true revolutionary mind.
    An exemplary radical after my very own ideologies. We are extremely privileged to have him here.
