  1. The Black and Proud Concert: Where Liberation Meets Culture
    Local and National Artists Perform at Benefit Concert Promoting African Liberation and Unity

    A diverse lineup of African artists and musicians, from traditional African drumming to salsa meringue to hip hop, will perform Friday, May 22nd, 7pm-11pm at the Carlos Rosario School Auditorium, 1100 Harvard St. NW in Washington, DC. The Black and Proud Concert opens a weekend of African Liberation Day events organized by the Uhuru (Freedom) Movement.

    Program highlights include
    • Hometown favorite DJ Soyo
    • New Jersey based rapper Hassan Salaam
    • Malcolm X Drummers and Dancers
    • Afro-Cuban salsa meringue band DC Casineros
    • Senegalese hip hop duo Wageble
    • Wise Intelligent of Poor Righteous Teachers
    • Three Generationz, the DC based singing trio that is Nata’aska HumminBird, Maimouna Youssef, and N’avasha Daya of the world-renowned soul band Fertile Ground.

    These artists represent the cultural component of the growing African Internationalist movement that is uniting African people everywhere in the struggle for African freedom and independence.

    Hip hop artist and political organizer Africa’s Trigga, who embodies the concert theme “liberation meets culture,” will also perform. He attracted national media attention last year for asking Obama, “What about the black community?” and has been on the front lines of struggles against police oppression in African communities across the country.

    The concert will be followed by a two-day conference aimed at putting revolutionary ideas into action through the African Socialist International. Students, activists, organizations and individuals from across North America are expected to attend and will engage in strategizing with the program’s dynamic speakers and workshops on the concrete work of building a liberated and united African nation.

    Tickets $20 benefit African Liberation Day. For more information contact 202.580.8276, or visit

  4. I was glad to read your comments on Michael Jackson and those of Mr. Hutchinson. Common sense, independent analysis and honest discernment are increasingly rare commodities in America. However I believe that the fanaticism of the prosecutors and the mob mentality feeding frenzy of the media indicates something far more sinister……. I believe there was a secret agenda to try and destroy Michael Jackson by the elite banking interests that own all our media and our politicians.

  7. Ice Cube is a icon in Hip-Hop! Cube should get the same kind of treatment & respect that Jay-Z is getting right now if not MORE! The radio stations should play Ice Cube’s music more often classic and new.

    And Kanye West proved Cube’s point at the VMA awards last year when he made an ass of himself, put Beyonce on BLAST, and made Taylor Swift’s career worth something all in the same night

  8. RE: Thor.
    I agree that people should be upset about the mis-casting of Pharaohs, Jesus and the fireman in the 9-11 movie. I’m upset! We have knowledge of what these people looked like. Cast appropriately rather than giving some lame “in the spirit” excuse. Lawrence Fishburne playing Othello was brilliant.

    Thor, however is a mythological being. The myth was created by people who were white and probably had no idea that there was any other skin colour in the world. If their knowledge is limited to white people how likely is it they would imagine a black person? I’m sure Idris Elba can play the role well – especially in the spirit of Thor – but I do understand why people are upset especially when Marvel have presented Thor as white – in effect creating the legend for its’ 20th/21st Century consumers – which is what is now expected.

    If Elba can play Thor does it justify the arguments of those who mis-cast white actors when they should have cast black ones? Kind of, but can you really debate a myth vs. reality?

    As unlikely as I think it would be, and Marvel has made it so for thousands, Elba makes a good point when he makes the comment about people believing the hammer comes to Thor when he calls, but they can’t stretch their imaginations to see Thor as black.

    I look forward to seeing the film and cheering Idris Elba on.

  20. Hey Davy d

    I was hoping you would be open to speaking with me. My cousin did some work with you some years back, and I know that you are the person that can point in the right direction.
    Ak-9ine is a family member of mine. I hope that sounds familiar. I wanted to talk to you about a program (50 billion empowerment plan) that is for the black community. If possible I would like to share with you what the program is and how it can change the state of our neighborhoods all over the US.

    Thank you,

    Don Parish
