Footage aired on C-SPAN (amazingly enough!) in 2005. Where was the public reaction? There was none, so far as I’ve ever heard.

Howard University did issue this statement since it rented out space for the panel discussion that took place on October 14, 2005, shown in the video: http://www.law.howard.edu/852

Information on this man and his beliefs (according to his profile on metapedia.org: http://en.metapedia.org/wiki/Kamau_Ka…

Kamau Kambon (born Leroy Jefferson) was a radical black professor who called for the extermination of the white race. As an African Studies Professor, he taught at North Carolina State University since 2003, primarily focusing on a number of Afrocentric courses.

Kambon is the owner since 1994 of “Blacknificent Books”, which sells Afrocentric material.

His Call for Genocide

“The problem on the planet is white people … We have to exterminate white people off the face of the planet, to solve this problem.” These were Kambon’s words during his address to a panel on “Hurricane Katrina Media Coverage” late in 2005. His 10-minute speech aired uninterrupted on the cable television network C-SPAN.

Its only non-Internet exposure came from its mention on minor political-dissident radio, such as Republic Broadcasting Network.

Community

Nipsey Hussle had a true marathon of journey vision and it was based on community, starting with his own. The Crenshaw hood community began with an artists and a vision, a store, and helping out many people who truly needed it!

RIP Mr. Nipsey Hussle

Here is a sad story of a true black radical. Ermias Asghedom (August 15, 1985 – March 31, 2019), known professionally as Nipsey Hussle (often stylized as Nipsey Hu$$le), was an American rapper and songwriter from Los Angeles, California.

Emerging from the West Coast hip hop scene in the mid-2000s, Hussle initially became known for his numerous mixtapes, including his Bullets Ain’t Got No Name series, The Marathon, The Marathon Continues and Crenshaw, the last of which rapper Jay-Z bought 100 copies of for $100 each.

The Life of Nipsey Hussle

After much delay, his debut studio album Victory Lap was released in February 2018 to critical acclaim. Nipsey’s commercial success was nominated for Best Rap Album at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards in 2019.

Asghedom was born on August 15, 1985, and raised in the Crenshaw neighborhood of South Los Angeles. His father is a refugee from Eritrea to the U.S. who escaped the ongoing war in his homeland. His mother is African American from LA.

the late Mr. Nipsey Hussle

When asked about his background during an interview, Asghedom stated, “I was raised in L.A. by my mom, you know my mom’s family is black American.” I always knew my heritage from my dad but I never met my family. My dad was the only one in America – everybody else was back home. So when I went out there [Eritrea] it educated me to the other side”.

Hussle was also a member of the local Rollin 60’s Neighborhood Crips gang. His stage name, a play on the name of comic Nipsey Russell, originated as a nickname, given to Asghedom by a friend while in his teens.

Hussle was murdered outside his store, Marathon Clothing, in South Los Angeles on March 31, 2019.

The Late Great Nelson Mandela as President

The Late Great Nelson Mandela as President

Many people know or have heard of the late great Nelson Mandela, as a president, but more as the South African leader. Nelson was born in a village in South Africa called Mvezo, which is in Umtata. This was part of South Africa’s Cape Province.

His middle name is Rolihlahla, which actually means “troublemaker.” Not Mandela, a troublemaker? He made a lot of trouble for racist whites in South Africa, and perhaps some for himself. Nelson will forever be known as the South African political activist, which steered him into the positions he held in his later life.

This black radical spent over 25 years of his life in prison because he opposed the apartheid regime. He was freed from prison in 1990, and four short years later, he was being sworn in as South Africa’s first president. For obvious reasons, this was a big deal.

The MLK Jr. of South Africa

Many men and women have been presidents of countries, but not many presidents have won Nobel Peace Prizes. President Mandela was one of them to win the Nobel Prize, in 1993. He won for his efforts to end racial segregation in South Africa. You can view him as the Martin Luther King Jr. of South Africa.

This kind of goes to show, if the FBI in America did not put out an assassin on Dr. King, Dr. King could have been the first black US president perhaps (we digress). Back to Mandela; before being imprisoned wrongfully, Mandela professionally was an attorney.

He knew the law. And because of racial inequalities, he was in high demand to help stop the apartheid. He was up for the battle because he was committed to the cause. He and other members of the ANC (African National Congress) were arrested for treason.

Nelson Mandela Arrested for Fighting the Apartheid System

Acquitted, Mandela reformed and retooled, only to be rearrested and this time put in jail. Imprisonment was a learning period, and it made Nelson stronger and also well known throughout the world. Although the struggle appeared to be him fighting against white people, Mandela spoke differently. He felt he was fighting against the apartheid system.

When Nelson was released from prison on February 11th of 1990, the country took it as the end of the apartheid. When he assumed power in South Africa as the first president of the democratic state, he wasn’t a vengeful leader. Instead, the late great Mandela was extremely forgiving and generous.

He supported even white groups, encouraging all people to support the Springboks, a group symbolized as white supremacy. That would equate, in the United States, to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. advocating for black US citizens to support the KKK (Ku Klux Klan).

Mandela both a peace and black radical…

This was known as the epitome of peace and forgiveness. It catapulted his status as one of the world’s greatest leaders. He did it his way, supporting so-called villains like Colonel Gaddafi, President Fidel Castro, and President Yasser Arafat. Certainly a radical, and we salute the late great Nelson Mandela, as president, as a political activist, as a social activist, and peace radical. Nelson Mandela, black radical.

Ghanaian President Gets Radical with French, Europe

Ghanaian president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, in the video above gave a mouthful of words to the French president. Although it was not directed directly at French president, Emmanuel Macron, it sure felt as if it was. Macron was given a respectful mouthful of what needs to be done in Africa.

For so long, as president Akufo-Addo so eloquently said, Ghana has been (slightly or largely) dependent on European nations for over 50 years, since its independence.

A natural black radical, President Akufo-Addo says that it is now time for Ghana and all African nations, which have accomplished its independence more than half a century ago, to become fully independent.

Ghana Must Take the French and European Breast Out of its Mouth

It is the time Ghana comes out of the need to accept financial aid from European taxpayers as a necessity. Also, Ghanaians need to build a system that will allow Ghana to retain its best minds. The most brilliant youth of the nation are currently graduating and fleeing to European nations for a lifestyle and work.

Developing Another House!

Akufo-Addo said that they (the youth) are not leaving because they want to, instead it’s because they have to. They are in this position because they are not able to see the vision Ghana can provide the lifestyle for independent progress. A child who watches his father work for another man will eventually go work for that man also.

Ghanaian President Gets Radical with French, Europe

The European lifestyle is more modern and offers more opportunity to the burgeoning youth of Ghana and other African nations. If Africa is able to build systems that can promote true independence as other countries have done in shorter times since their independence (such as Malaysia Singapore Canada), then the youth will stay in Ghana.

Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo Gets Radical with French Leader

They will stay and build the rich nation full of its rich resources the way we are seeing in Europe. We can have nothing but respect for the way that president Akufo-Addo verbalize it, and for those statements being his personal thought process.

“We can no longer continue to make policy for ourselves, in our country, in our region, in our continent on the basis of whatever support that the western world or France, or the European Union can give us. It will not work. It has not worked and it will not work”.

We can also only appreciate this for the world to understand that this line of THINKING is what the world needs; independent nations driving upon itself, participating as a developed nation, in a free trade market in the global society.

Black radical of the day Ghanaian president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo!

Cheikh Anta Diop born on December 29th of 1923, was a historian, anthropologist, physicist, and politician who studied the human race’s origins and pre-colonial African culture. In 1946, at the ripe age of 23, Diop decided to go to Paris to study. He originally thought to study mathematics as his major of study.

Dr. Diop only later decided to enroll to study philosophy in the Faculty of Arts of the Sorbonne. He earned his first degree in philosophy in 1948 and quickly enrolled in the Faculty of Sciences, where he received two diplomas in chemistry in 1950.

According to Diop’s personal writings, his body of education in Paris included studies in History, Egyptology, Physics, Linguistics, Anthropology, Economics, and Sociology. He was very well-rounded and educated individual. Not only an educator, Diop had been politically active.

He was involved in the Rassemblement Démocratique Africain (RDA), which is an African nationalist organization that was led by Félix Houphouët-Boigny. Dr. Diop was the general secretary of the RDA students in Paris from 1950 to 1953. Under Diop’s leadership, the first post-war pan-African student congress was organized in 1951.

Dr. Cheikh Anta Diop Bio Story

Diop’s understanding and main theory of Africa were that the political strife for African liberation would not be successful without the civilizing role of the African being acknowledged. This he believed began with ancient Egypt. He singled out the contradiction of “the African historian who evades the problem of Egypt“.

Black Africa: the economic and cultural basis for a federated state is one of Cheikh’s books and is the on that best expresses Diop’s political aims and objectives. In Black Africa, Diop argues that only a united and federated African state will be able to overcome the crying issue in Africa, which is its underdevelopment conflict. He proposed to establish a single African language, which should be used across the continent for official, educational, and cultural purposes.

Struggle of Official Recognition

His initial doctoral dissertation submitted at the University of Paris, Sorbonne in 1951, was based on the premise that ancient Egypt, with all the glory of the past pharaohs, was an African civilization.

This dissertation was rejected by “white” Eurocentric educators. Regardless of this, Diop’s dissertation was finally published by Presence Africaine; and it was under the title Nations Negres et Culture in 1955 (which won him global recognition).

Diop pushed to have his doctorates granted again, and two additional attempts were turned back once again. It wasn’t until 1960 when he entered his defense session with an array of sociologists, anthropologists, and historians; that he triumphantly carried his argument.

Dr. Cheikh Anta Diop Biography

It took nearly a decade of enormous and arduous effort, but Diop finally won his Docteur es Lettres! In that same year, 1960, were published two of his other works; the Cultural Unity of Black Africa and Precolonial Black Africa.

In 1966 at Dakar, the World Festival of Negro Arts honored Diop.

He was honored as “the black intellectual who has exercised the most fruitful influence in the twentieth century.”

Diop passed in 1986 on February 7th. He is remembered as a towering Sudanese black radical, educator.

Medgar Evers Life Story

Medgar Evers was a civil rights activist who organized voter-registration efforts, demonstrations and boycotts of companies that practiced discrimination. Born in Mississippi, he served in World War II.

He did this before going to work for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).

Prior to his civil rights crusade, he fought in a different kind of battle. In June 1944, Evers’ unit was part of the massive, post-D-Day invasion of Europe, not to mention, he served in both France and Germany. This was until his honorable discharge in 1946. It was there he realized the harsh incongruency in America and the Jim Crow law.

Back in the States

In August 1955, a Chicago-born Emmett Till (just 14 years old and visiting relatives in Money, Mississippi) was kidnapped by a group of white men, after reportedly flirting with the wife of a local shopkeeper. Evers spoke up diligently about this matter, bringing him into the limelight.

During the early 1960s, the increased tempo of civil-rights activities in the South created high and constant tensions. And in Mississippi, conditions were often at the breaking point. On the morning of June 12, 1963, around 12:20 a.m., Medgar Evers arrived home from a long meeting at the New Jerusalem Baptist Church located at 2464 Kelley Street.

He was assassinated by KKK members.

On the 40-year anniversary of Evers’s assassination, hundreds of civil rights veterans, government officials, and students from across the country gathered around his grave site. This was at Arlington National Cemetery, they celebrated his life and legacy.

The Life Story of Medgar Evers

On June 15, 1963, Evers’s funeral was held at the Masonic Temple, with Charles Jones, Campbell College chaplain, officiating the service. In 1969, Evers’ brother Charles was the first black man elected mayor of Mississippi.

“Medgar and I said many years ago, if we ever end the violent racism in this state, it’ll be the greatest state in the world to live,” he tells Peeples. “And now, Medgar, I know you’re gone, but I’m telling you, son, it’s come to pass.”

medgar evers life story

Evers’s wife, Myrlie, became a noted activist in her own right later in life. She eventually serving as chairwoman of the NAACP. Medgar’s brother Charles returned to Jackson in July 1963 and served briefly in his slain brother’s place.

Medgar Evers a Black Radical

Evers was featured on a nine-man death list in the deep South as early as 1955; as a matter of fact, he and his family endured numerous threats and other violent acts. This made them well aware of the danger surrounding him because of his activism.

It takes a radical to face uncertainty, threats, and other misgivings in pursuit of freedom, justice, and equality. It takes a radical to face this and to continue to move forward.

This is why Medgar Evers is a true black radical.

Mayor Harold Washington the Black Radical

If you did not know the very intelligent and Charismatic former mayor of Chicago, Harold Lee Washington, and then you didn’t know Chicago politics. Harold Washington started off as an American attorney and then went into politics from there, in the state of Illinois.

Bold moves, a strong personality, and his like-ability thrust him into becoming the 41st selected mayor of the city of Chicago.

​Mayor Harold Washington the Black Radical

Washington is also the first African American mayor to be elected in Chicago. He served from 1983 until the time of his unexpected death in 1987.

Harold Washington is certainly considered a black radical, his bold stance on equality for all people cemented his iconic image and legacy. The fact that he was an African American gave him much more popularity and notoriety.

A True Chicago Black Radical, Mayor Harold Washington

It also gave him much strife and conflict from the Chicago Democratic political machine. Harold brought the hope President Obama’s campaign brought to the country, to Chicago. And that is why he is a true Chicago black radical.
