The NEW Afrikan

"The term New Afrikan is not a fly-by-night in thing or fad premised (introduction or proposition upon which an argument is based) upon regional and geographical consideration. Nor is it only a mere physical reality. It is a re-awakened people, a spiritual force, part of the human family creating within themselves a socio-national conscience of paramount importance to one’s dignity, integrity, strength, freedom, security and stability. ...

There were many beloved New Afrikan sisters and brothers like Sojourner Truth, Denmark Vesey, Gabriel Prosser, David Walker, Nat Turner, Dr. Martin R. Delaney, Harriet Tubman, Ida B. Wells-Barnett, Marcus M. Garvey, Paul Robeson, Elijah Muhammad, Harry Haywood, Ella Jo “Fundi” Baker, El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz, Zayd Malik Shakur, George Jackson, Kuwasi Balagoon, Mtayari Shabaka Sundiata, Bobby Hutton, and Jonathan Jackson, only to name a few, who always acknowledged their Afrikan heritage, even under pain of death. 

The New Afrikan represents unity of mind and body of the highest order. Yet on this point there need not be any doubt who is the New Afrikan. Our history brings Us together. The bottom line is that, in slavery We came to Amerika from many different Afrikan Nations sometimes called tribes. Here We became one people, a New Afrikan people, and a New Afrikan Nation."
(by Zolo Agona Azania)

Anti-Afrikan Propaganda is a vital key to the survival of white supremacy. Any error in this area of the great white lie would certainly lead to the destruction of the world economic and communications order.

In short, this is the heart we are attempting to strike at to deal this evil force a death blow. A blow that would breathe life into Pan-Afrikansim in particular, and the exploited in general.

The Race: Matters Concerning Pan Afrikan History, Culture & Genocide

The Race: 
Matters Concerning Pan Afrikan History, Culture & Genocide
Kiarri T-H Cheatwood

The authors give short shrift to the 1200 year (700 to 1900) hisotry of Islamic slavery. The Koran directly and expressly embraces slavery. Mohammed owend slaves and created slaves by military conquest. The Hadith contain many pages of instructions from Mohammed to slaveowners. Eurpopeans arriving in West Africa in the 1600 found a fully developed slave trade run by the Islamic empire. The Ummayad, Abbassed and Ottoman Islamic empires grew strong on slavery. 11 million Black Africans were enslaved by Islamic slave traders. Male slaves were castrated and forced to serve in the military of the Caliph.
Colonialism has been over for more than 50 years, some former colonies have progressed India, Hong Kong and Singapore, some have not. Time to look to yourselves. The tribalism and corruption of Africa holds it back.

Product image for ASIN: 080211623X The Farrakhan Factor
Author: Amy Alexander;

When African American writers come together to discuss the cultural importance of Minister Louis Farrakhan, says editor Amy Alexander, "loving him or hating him is not really the issue." The fact of the matter is, Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam (NOI) have had a demonstrable impact on American society, particularly African American society, which any assessment of his worth must acknowledge.

The essays here approach Farrakhan from varying standpoints. Some contributors, such as Henry Louis Gates Jr. and Michael Eric Dyson, try for total journalistic or academic objectivity. Others, recounting their personal experiences in NOI, have generally positive things to say about the minister and (most of) his teachings.
