There are two kinds of discontent in the world. One type is a catalyst for inspired activities. The other type wrings its hands. The first type gets what it wants, the second type loses what it has. Success, breakthroughs, progress and healing are the results of the first. More discontent and irritability are the results of the second.

If we do not do something about our discontent, healing is unlikely.

Where are you experiencing discontent in your life Black man?

If you need coaching to get you from discontent to reaching your goals, aspirations and dreams schedule your 30 minute complimentary session today.

Chris Webber hopes to inspire the next generation at Morehouse College

Chris Webber’s impact on basketball culture can’t be denied. He was the star player of the revolutionary Fab Five Michigan Wolverines that became the first team to compete in the NCAA championship game with all freshmen starters. With their trendy baggy shorts, black socks and black shoes, they helped change the way fashion was viewed across the college basketball landscape.

Now, the former five-time NBA All-Star and current TNT analyst will be teaching a new course at the legendary Morehouse College called Activism in Sports and Culture, which will be hosted on the online education provider Coursera. Webber, who played 15 seasons in the NBA with five teams, looks to inspire the next generation of activist athletes and give context about those who preceded them.

“What I aim to do hopefully is to honor guys like John Carlos and Spencer Haywood, to let guys know there would be no Kobe Bryant, LeBron [James] if Spencer Haywood didn’t go to the Supreme Court,” Webber told The Undefeated. “I want to honor them, to make sure they stay relevant, to spark conversation, to inspire someone to take those messages and see that, ‘Listen, I can get over that. If they’ve gone through this, I can get through it.’ ”

Jake Gaither coached his last college football game fifty years ago, but his impact on the sport is still felt.

Alonzo S. “Jake” Gaither, the head coach at Florida A&M University from 1945 to 1969, wore many hats at the historically black college in Tallahassee. He was a coach, teacher, mentor and innovator. Gaither also had the skills of a nimble acrobat as he walked a precarious tightrope, balancing the interests of his school while maintaining good relationships with the “Pork Choppers” who dominated Florida’s rough-and-tumble post-World War II politics.

How Black fraternities are actually harmful to Black culture in the US

BGLOs are some of the most influential organizations in the country. Collectively, these organizations claim approximately 800,000 members, with many coming from the social elite of Black culture. Each year, they offer countless scholarships and conduct thousands of service programs. Accordingly, many of the staunchest supporters of BGLOs not only insist that their existence is a valuable asset to society but also stress that these organizations, which include writers, social activists, educators, and civil rights leaders, are historically linked to the success of the African American community.

Conversely, many of their harshest critics maintain that the activities of organizations that have included secret meetings, selective membership, and a preference for lighter complexions have allowed Black elites to create a separate privileged society based on snobbery and arrogance and have thus enabled these organizations to perpetuate the vicious cycle of racial prejudice and White supremacy.

Historian and sociologist W.E.B. DuBois at times openly condemned Black fraternities. During a 1930 commencement address at Howard University, DuBois stated, “Our college man today is, on the average a man untouched by real culture. He deliberately surrenders to selfish and even silly ideals, swarming into semiprofessional athletics and Greek letter societies…we have in our colleges a growing mass of stupidity and indifference”.

The creation of the Black fraternity had a dual purpose. First, these organizations were established for the greater goal of pooling the resources of African Americans in the hopes of acquiring an education. Second, these organizations were formed as an attempt by Black students to gain acceptance into American society, that is, the campus community, by emulating or creating organizations that mirrored preexisting White organizations.

Now more than a century old, Black Greek Letter Organizations – fraternities – have more than 800,000 members. But are such organizations an asset or do they work against African Americ…

Advancing Our Interests - Powered by IAYA

Africana womanism is an ideology coined and detailed by Dr Clenora Hudson-Weems. It has 18 tenets or principles of its ideologies and it is a much more identifiable movement than feminism, black feminism, or Alice Walker’s womanism. Africana womanism is different from feminism and its attempts at black variants like black feminism and Alice Walker’s womanism because it is centered on the whole black family. This means the women, the men, the children, the queer, the genderless, and all possible black intersections like class and colorism. This means that it is inherently inclusive of all black intersections. This is not a movement that excludes those of different sexualities but does prioritize heterosexual relationships, which are most affected by white patriarchy in the ways that sexism drives division.

Feminism and its blackified variants currently and through history have focused on things like:

the right to work

the right to learn

the right to fair pay

the right to equality with white men

the right to be leaders of white organizations

the right to vote

gender-less division of domestic labor

representation

trans women discrimination

body/ slt shaming

sexual assault and abuse

domestic violence

These are all valid issues under white patriarchy and they are issues that affect black women whom are under white domination and are emulated/ perpetuated by black men under white domination and even internalized by some black women. Africana womanism does not invalidate these issues. It just adds a Pan-African nuanced perspective on these issues as it relates to black women and black people as a whole. And I think it is a perspective that is necessary.

HBCU: The Opportunity Project I am an independent scholar seeking the participation of HBCU schools and corporate sponsors for a new mentoring program I am planning for honor students. Participating institutions will do so free of any charges or fees associated with the project. I am currently seeking a college or university willing to host a pilot project to be designed and launched by me along with a marketing organization in New York. I taught writing and creative process at Western Connecticut State University for more than 30 years. I am shifting gears in my professional life now to address a problem I noticed many graduating scholars face. While undergraduate and graduate work prepares students to find meaningful employment after graduation, a majority of my students initially falter and often fail to find jobs in fields covered by their majors. I believe a mentoring program which pairs students with mentors in the field of their choice might help solve this problem. I am currently negotiating with marketing firms in New York who have expressed an interest in helping me obtain corporate sponsors to launch this project initially with HBCU schools. This is a unique opportunity for corporations seeking participation in a meaningful diversity project they can finance as well as the chance to mentor honor students recommended by deans at participating schools. Corporations will also have the opportunity to bring celebrity HBCU alumni to campus events and an annual event for mentors and mentees each year. My project was inspired by an historic Harlem Renaissance project which began in 1924 in Harlem, featured in a chapter of my last book, Harlem: Crucible of Modern African American Culture (Praeger 2016). The idea stems from a series of dinners sponsored by the National Urban League (NUL) in Manhattan in 1924 and a magazine the league owned, "Opportunity." At the time Black writers from Harlem were introduced to powerful editors and publishers in New York. Those editors mentored writers like Langston Hughes, Dorothy West, Countee Cullen and others. Those relationships lasted for decades and were maintained well into the 1960s. The "Opportunity Project" would create a similar prospects for black scholars and corporations in creating a mentoring program. I would ask sponsors to finance the project and provide one and two year mentoring opportunities to honor students. I would be honored if your institution would consider participating in this groundbreaking opportunity. Sincerely, Prof. Lionel Bascom [email protected] [email protected]
