I know we got some Jamaicans in the room
I recognize the faces but don’t remember the names
that’s not Marcus
Marcus garvey's father
Our education has been neglected
The name Nana in Akan means chief
Not Marcus Garvey but Robert Love. :)
I saw it!
Sam Sharpe is my direct descendant from the west side of the island of Jamaica.
i am always surprised at the ability of black people to travel during and immed after the slavery era.
love that !
always great to see efforts to empower women 💪🏿
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?
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.
In the film madam cj walker Booker T Washington seemed to be against woman empowerment. Well at least that was the impression I had.
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
because they are treathened by the power we have when we know our true self
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
even in prominently black schools aswell it seems to be absent. even schools with black teachers
maybe you can save your comment about another class for another time.
im not sure how much teachers have say of curriculum. im assuming black teachers might be censored
I am interested in Barbadian connections are there any other than Dr Love?
It was the UNIA that the Little’s were eventually working for, creating chapters?
word on the street is Marcus was cheating on Amy #1 with Amy #2
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.
skin whitening creams are big business in India
theres always one 😔
I lived in South Korea 10 years ago and whitening creams were popular at that time. I assume they still are
That explains why we have streets in Nairobi named after Marcus Garvey and George Padmore. They became friends with Jomo Kenyatta in 1945.
I had not heard the name George Padmore again till today.
Why was he so opposed to Garvey’s Pan-African approach?
I like that: "We shall not go back to sleep any more."
"Our independence is meaningless unless we have total liberation of the African continent."
When is Jamaica going to get rid of the Queen?
