The Mis-Education of Americans on Black History May 19, 2013 | Filed under: Featured , Headlines | Posted by: Editorial_Staff Many erroneous beliefs regarding the role of Black people in history are still pervasive today AFRICANGLOBE – In 1933, the father of African-American history, Dr. Carter G. Woodson, penned a book titled “ The Mis-Education of the Negro .’’ The book itself was interesting literature, and within its pages were lessons of a people mis-educated to think they were inferior...

Am I mis-educated and everybody knows about this but me? I just stumbled across it by accident. But I don't recall ever hearing of it. The Quest of the Silver Fleece , by W. E. B.

This is the HELL I've been screaming at the top of my lungs about: Educating blackfolks about their REAL history. Not this made-up, cover-up western version bullshyte that massa created to make him seem like the hero ot the world. Truth is, only half the world is sorta free. Truth is they deliberately not use the term "homosexuality" in eastern countries or on the other side of the world to reframe from explaining WHY women and children are still socially, psychologically, economically,...

Wouldn't Black history address the fact that Black people from the West coast of Africs from 1500 to 1700 were not Christians? So why are so many Black Americans Christians today? Beware of history. Not only can it be white washed, it can be black washed. Xum

Come on my brotha! You knew the ANSWER before asking the question......right? 1500 to 1700 is roughly when the Europeans came on the scene in terms of slavery of Africans. Of course, the enslaved are gonna adopted the belief of the master. That's a given. And it's called control/power. But! You know this. And the other side of that is the Arabs forced conversion to Islam to every place they CONQUERED including most of Africa and India. Sooooooooo say you're playin'. Cuz I can't believe as...

Cuz the reasons why are CLEAR as the sky is blue. But! I'm not playin'! If we are saying there is some point to analysing the history then why let the history control us. Why should we be Christians or Muslims or are the advocates of...

I know this is a discussion board and all....But this SAME topic was discussed decades ago. If you think I'm lying, then go check my archives. The SAME result came about: A couple members expressed their knowledge of unadulterated, unfettered black history. Whoopty doo. People get mad at whitey and then move on to the next topic--problem deferred. This is the equivalent of screaming the theory of relativity into a storm drain. Nothing but echoes--Nothing gets done. If you really want to...

What you are suggesting is great, however, WE HAVE TO keep the discussion alive by 'any means necessary', because even the mere discussion educates, enlightens and motivates. To stop the discussion of the Black Experience in America, the African American Experience in America, Western Imperialism of Africa, Our History, Our Issues and Racial Politics of America and throughout the Globe that affects peoples of African descent/the Black Race, would be equivalent to living on D'Nile, NOT...

Why should we be Christians of Muslims or are the advocates of history saying we should have the religion of our ancestors? What is the conclusion form history if history is so important? Three words, my brotha! Control. Power. Identity. It is as simple as that. And the most vital reason? It WORKS! Have worked over 5,000 years. To break it down. The first...

All of this talk about history and we never hear about this: The Negro, by W.E.B. Du Bois http://www.gutenberg.org/files.../15359-h/15359-h.htm It has been free on the net since 2005. All I ever hear about is Souls of Black Folks but who has read it besides me? Xum

I do have a copy downloaded to my library, but I haven't gotten around to reading it again; truthfully, I was young when I read it the first time and probably need to read it again because there is a big difference in how you process or interpret or understand something read when you are young as apposed when you are older or mature, or have experience enough life to be able to relate to what you are reading or to relate what you are reading to life.

That's funny. Really it is. It's funny. I prefer to keep the discussion "alive" by responding with accomplishments you've made in the black community, NOT repeat the same helpless question: 'What is we gon' DO in our commUNNNITY to help our childrens!?!?!' No. That's not a conversation. That is a cry for help. We already KNOW how to cry for help. The black community has been crying for help for too long. Since before I was a member of this discussion board I've taught in several schools in...

Did You Know That Memorial Day Was Started By Ex-Enslaved Africans? One of the things that most black people know is that the public school system does a horri ble job teaching black history. They will gladly tell you all the wonderful things that white people did and maybe even go back to Europe, but the contributions of African Americans are kept entirely on the backburner. A fact that you should probably know is that African Americans are the reason that Memorial Day even exists in the...
