Lebron James,I Promise School- What if the school was Pan African?

Bron1...

The video(above) is a great podcast.  It’s from the Bitter Medicine Podcast.  It’s a great interview with Onitaset Kumat.  They’re discussing the new school by Lebron James.  There’s a lot of hype about the school.  But I wonder to myself….what if it was African centered?  What if the entire curriculum was about empowering black children.  Do we need our own schools?  Kind of like what Umar Johnson was trying to do.  Listen to the podcast and tell me what you think. I’d love to hear your thoughts.  And be sure to subscribe to Bitter Medicine Podcast and Onitaset’s channel,Pro- Black Perspective.

Interview with author Onitaset Kumat

This is a great view with author and fellow blogger Onitaset Kumat.  The interview is with the Bitter Medicine Podcast.  The interview is about his new book.

“The Pro-Black Compendium” is a resource guide written by a longtime Organizer for the purpose of its reader gaining clarity and insights into how to Seek and Develop African Consciousness for themselves and their Brothers and Sisters.  The book elaborates on numerous activities, ancestors, books and films for African Development and includes several hundred curated proverbs and quotations that have been used with great success by the author and our ancestors.

Know Thyself..

The also book discusses Warriors, Warrior Queen-Mothers, Wars and Civilizations, with immense instruction.  I.e. what can we learn from Hannibal?  What can we learn from Dahia Al-Kahina?  What can we learn from the Second Intermediate Period? What can we learn from the Maa Federation?  These questions and more are answered succinctly yet astutely to provide those Africans willing to make a change to know what is and what needs to be changed.
