and here we have a white fool (cracker longbackus in scientific terms) in his preferred environment. i.e. invading poc spaces.note the sloppy mimicry, the shoddy attempt at camouflage. oddly enough, the white fool often believes his minstrel show will accepted without question, but as always…he been seent.

stay tuned for the next foray into pathetic crackertivities

50 Books By African Women That Everyone Should Read (Part 1)

thefemaletyrant:

Just ahead of Africa Writes - quite possibly the UK’s largest celebration of African books and literature, we teamed up with the Bookshy Blogger’s Zahrah Nessbit-Ahmed to compile a list of 50 books by African women writers that we think everyone should read – before they die. It was definitely an interesting exercise to decide on the titles for myself, and Zahrah; some of them came to mind quite instinctively.

The more recent novels by Adichie, and Bulawayo, can’t help but press themselves against the imagination – but there are also older titles which deserve to be read, and read again. There are some omissions because wherever possible we’ve avoided more than one entry from an author, especially where neither of us has read their complete ouvre. While this is predominantly a list of novels, there are some non-fiction, and poetry titles which just had to be on the list because of their contemporary or lasting impact.

Now, it’s not definitive, exhaustive or even representative – but we hope you enjoy reading these titles (because you will read them all, right?) – and feel free to join the conversation about the list on the Africa Writes facebook page, as well as ours!

The only compilation of books that has me excited. I’ve read most of the books on the list and am familiar with most of the authors. I can’t wait to read the ones that are new to me

The campaign is real, let’s boost this….

Why august? Lol

It’s a hotter month, since we are technically a tropical people.It’s a longer month then February, which is the shortest month.
Brief Historical Outline of “Black August”
A sampling of this month of “righteous rebellion” and “racist repression” includes:
The first Afrikans were brought to Jamestown as slaves in August of 1619.Gabriel Prosser’s slave rebellion occurred on August 30th, 1800.The “Prophet” Nat Turner planned and executed a slave rebellion that commenced on August 21, 1831.In 1843, Henry Highland Garnett called a general slave strike on August 22.The Underground Railroad was started on August 2, 1850.The March on Washington occurred in August of 1963The Watts rebellions were in August of 1965.On August 18, 1971 the Provisional Government of the Republic of New Afrika (RNA) was raided by Mississippi police and FBI agents.On August 8, 1978 Philadelphia police initiated a shootout against MOVE membersFurther, August is a time of birth. Dr. Mutulu Shakur (New Afrikan prisoner of war), Pan-Africanist Leader Marcus Garvey, Maroon Russell Shoatz (political prisoner) and Chicago Black Panther Party Chairman Fred Hampton were born in August. August is also a time of transition and rebirth. The great scholar and educator W.E.B. Dubois died in Ghana on August 27, 1963. So, August is a month during which New Afrikans can reflect on our current situation and our struggle for self-determination and freedom.
