    For all the Afrikans who speak of 'WE'
    From youth to elder you hold in bondage and captivity
    Their only crime being 'voices' of truth
    Elders now and you stole their youth
    Platations - which you state are gone
    Full of Afrikans, many of whom have done no wrong
    We do NOT need your permission to be FREE
    So we take our freedom without your key
    We take it now
    For you must SEE
    Who and What the AFRIKAN BE!!

    And so it is!!!

    Rise Transformed Afrikans

    Peace

    Interesting timing of your post. For the past month there was no mention on this site of BLACK AUGUST. At least not that I know of. Seems as if Sarah Palin is of more an urgency. Or "coochie".

    I didnt forget just was gonna se when and who made mention of the plight oncerning Black political prisoners for once. Thanks for this.

    Peace

    Brother Omowale - thanks for this. As you are aware, Brother Oldsoul holds Black Consciousness Raising classes in the chat room on Sunday's and he dedicated each Sunday in August by focusing/teaching/commemorating Black August - including live recordings, 'in their own words', past and current perspectives on the actual events. It was outstanding!

    You post makes it clear to me that we need to promote such things better - so all members are aware of the current topics on the table and can participate in the discussions.

    Sister River does record the classes and posts them in mp3 format for download on her site (http://www.ebonyminds.com/conraise/) - but nothing beats live participation.

    Although it does not excuse the absence of members posting (and seemingly preferring coochie stuff :lol:) I just wanted to mention it.. ;)

    :heart:
