Go to siriustimes.com. They have a library full of African American lectures that teach the REAL truth about our history. You cannot find these videos anywhere else. You can find topics ranging from education, metaphysics, diet, and history.
 
Confused There are some really weird stuff on that site.


By weird you mean extremely informative and enlightening


Do any of the lectures/videos have previews or something? All I see are titles and prices. The site itself isn't very user friendly. No comment on the content since I can't find any of it.


You have a PM Wink

Neka, you must've had a sizeable Black population at your school because that's an extensive list for an American public school

it started out that way in elementary school. however, as the years progressed (and i moved around), it shifted to mostly hispanic students. 

basically, our city layout is: east-black, north-white, west/south- hispanic

Anywho, this must be the 'it' thing for haoles: Erase honest black experiences that paint haoles in a negative light in education and keep it focused on who they view as the 'safe negro' such as MLK, Rosa Parks, Harriet Tubman, etc.

I know the school board members don't have the brain cells to get past a chapter of an Emily Bronte book but somehow Invisible Man is too hard of a read? Haole please!

British Lit particarly the "Romantic" period is my favorite genre of literature.

Invisible Man was brilliant for most of the nove but it tapered off towards the end.
I felt the same way about Black Boy.

I love Harlem Renaissance Lit and AfAm modern lit but I prefer British Literature by miles.
