Chairman our leader 3.4

Listen/ watch to learn the history of the Black Power movement and why it is important to understand; the reason we’re having this discussion today is because Africa came under assault centuries ago. “This aggression on Africa was horrendous. . . it was massive huntings of African people throughout the continent of Africa….”   Chairman Omali Yeshitela discusses the poverty and disease of Europe under the Feudal system, and how this drove white Europeans to invade Africa, hunting and capturing Africans, stealing land, people, resources.  The horrendous environment created by Europeans which captive Africans were forced to live in.  The history of the European invasion and enslavement of Africans is tied to the problems Africans face today under colonial imperialism in the U.S. and elsewhere.
