Off the topic question: You mentioned Booker T. Washington. Is his portrayal in the Madam CJ Walker short series accurate, slightly accurate, or completely off?
Marla
36:13
how come we never hear about these people Like Benito Sylvain, HS Williams, Dr Love. We only hear about Toussaint Louverture, Malcom X , Martin Luther King etc.
Marla
37:56
In the film madam cj walker Booker T Washington seemed to be against woman empowerment. Well at least that was the impression I had.
Trey
39:58
why is European history pushed toward the black student rather than black history itself? I feel like educating black kids on our history should be priority in academics
Marla
40:39
because they are treathened by the power we have when we know our true self
Marla
41:57
also we have very powerful people in history which they do not want us to know about or are in denial that we were once so powerful
Trey
42:27
even in prominently black schools aswell it seems to be absent. even schools with black teachers
Rachel Décoste
43:22
maybe you can save your comment about another class for another time.
Asma
43:23
im not sure how much teachers have say of curriculum. im assuming black teachers might be censored
Jennifer
46:03
I am interested in Barbadian connections are there any other than Dr Love?
Rebecca

Those American bleaching ads were so catchy. I still remember one of them from the 70s. “Come look at this face. Come even closer. Now check the skin. Not bad, huh? I use Ambi skin cream….” I still remember that – from 40 years ago in Kenya.
Trey
57:31

I lived in South Korea 10 years ago and whitening creams were popular at that time. I assume they still are
Rachel Décoste
58:33
yup.
Nduta Mochai
01:08:02
That explains why we have streets in Nairobi named after Marcus Garvey and George Padmore. They became friends with Jomo Kenyatta in 1945.
Nduta Mochai
01:08:29
I had not heard the name George Padmore again till today.
Gina Leslie
01:10:16
Why was he so opposed to Garvey’s Pan-African approach?
Nduta Mochai
01:11:56
I like that: "We shall not go back to sleep any more."
Nduta Mochai
01:13:16
"Our independence is meaningless unless we have total liberation of the African continent."
Elaine
01:14:43
When is Jamaica going to get rid of the Queen?
