    Can someone explain

    Given the list of panafrican organizations listed, can someone explain the differences between them? Are there political/philosophical differences that causes them to be divided as an organization?

    Also, is there any unity or attempt to become unified among them and does the membership extend worldwide, particularly to Africa, or is it localized?

    Peace.

    TransAfrica, the Ausar Auset Society, the NYPD( as the murders of Amadou Diallo or Quismane Zango( and countless others) or the beating of Abner Louima show us, they obviously don't make the distinction between Black people from wherever on this planet ),

    I've asked this before

    I've asked this question before and no one seems to know the answer or else they don't care to give an answer. But I feel compelled by a genuine interest to repeat the question because we're always 'preaching' about unity and coming together to form a solid community.

    Of all the so-called Pan-African organizations like those mentioned in this thread, is there a common bond between them or sense of collaboration among them? Or, are they each going about doing there individual thing? Are these groups enlightened and committed enough to practice what they preach by overcoming challenges caused by our differences to stand before their Black people and the world to present a unified force?

    Peace! :spinstar:

    Is the Pan African world really together and all inclusive?

    Peace,

    I think the term Pan African (organization) is very broad and should easily encompass any Black African group that has a worldwide approach to African unity or interest, be it culture/arts, science, industry, politics or commerce. But on the other side of this view, every group that is assumed to be Pan African in name is not always Pan African in practice. Pan Africanism could easily embrace the goals of many black organizations in theory and cannot be a stagnant doctrine. Until groups that are “called Pan African organizations”, leave the world of “just” socialist political theory and become an integral part, of common solutions for Black folks, they will never leave the realm of protest and discussions. I think the term has become an exclusive idea, that has become synonymous with or only embracing political/militant action and organization as the only goal for social revolution, which in the U. S., at least, has become more rhetorical than life changing for most exiled Africans.

    In light of Sister NNQueen’s :bowdown: questions. I think if we could name “too many” Pan African organizations in this thread, than the collective idea of Pan Africanism would have to be in question. It would become divisive by the weight of its own multiplicity. I support Pan Africanism. I think Pan Africanism, in principle, is an undeniable philosophy. I’ve known many Black people who are intrinsic Pan Africanist, But I have yet to see theoretical Pan Africanism directly effect the lives and concerns of everyday Black folks.

    Peace,

    Brother Sun Ship
