1. Is Hip Hop Good for Black Folks ?"
    I (RBG Street Scholar/ Brotha Imhotep) will be one of the debaters to argue in firm support of hip hop culture as a prime tool for our unification, revolutionary change and a positive force in our liberation struggle, Re-Afrikanization Cultural Movement and nation building process.

  2. Dr. James Cone's

    MARTIN AND MALCOLM AND AMERICA: A DREAM OR A NIGHTMARE is one of the best books I've ever studied.

    I made this video (photo-story mini lecture) to introduce a learning
    series. Dr. James Cone, one of America's best known architects of Black
    Liberation Theology, discusses the liberation strategies of Martin
    Luther King, Jr, and Malcolm X as they applied to their particular
    audiences: Dr. King to the South and Malcolm X to the North. Dr. Cone
    argues that Martin King's strategy of non-violent protest, while
    quasi-effective in an extremely racist and segregated South, was not
    effective in the North because the discourse and policy of
    "integration" was already superficially accepted by Northern white
    liberals. The "liberal" North found Dr. King's non-violent social
    change rhetoric to be more or less agreeable, even as the structures of
    racial discrimination continued to subject us (black people) to a
    brutal double-standard. Thus, Malcolm X's philosophy of Black
    Nationalism (separatist rather than integrationist) that allowed for
    self defense epitomized by the slogan "by any means necessary" was more
    successful in the North because it more effectively confronted
    intrapersonal, socio-structural and institutional racism. Long story
    short: two great leaders with different approaches because of different
    situations, different audiences, but with the same ultimate
    goal-freedom, justice and equality for the masses of our people... For
    more on why a clarification of this relationship is so important to our
    struggle today read
