Vox--I am currently at the library--as promised. All signs point to -- Queen Shanakdakhete. She is most likely the Ethiopian Queen that sat waiting for Alexander the Great at the borders of Ethiopia.

Queen Shanakdakhete's chronological position is much debated (i.e. I wonder why, my insert). Dunham suggested 177-155BC, Hintze 180-170BC, Wenig 170-150BC, Shinnie...

The wiki piece really should be treated as a stub because it gives a rather poor understanding of womanism as it relates to feminism, particularly in the context of Walker's text. For Walker, womanism includes feminism. She says that womanism is to feminism as purple is to lavender. Purple is the larger category to which lavender belongs. The piece also does not address the argument put forth by Patricia Hill Collins in Black Feminist Thought: Knowledge, Consciousness, and the Politics of...

two thoughts one Pan-Africanism could come to be in two different manners. One would be to unite "religions" and "belief systems" and all come together to be one happy family.

Surely you jest about the maid in the white house and the ball boy on the court. And the power we have is RELATIVE and SUBJECTIVE. White folks are more "powerful" today than they were in the 1800's. And our "power" whatver that looks like, is based upon the amount they give. Why? Because we have done NOTHING to wrestle power away from white folks on amerikkkan shores.

There's a problem with this analysis. The Pharaoh of Moses' time did indeed have a Firstborn Son, who died in the last of the ten plagues. Akhenaton more closely parallels the pharaoh who was living during Joseph's time--especially considering the religious makeover of the times of Akhenaton. Pharaoh in Joseph's time had some pretty compelling dreams and interpretation was only possible through God who used Joseph to accomplish this. It is then entirely likely that Pharaoh went mono...
