National Liberation and Culture

By Sicebise Msengana

When Goebbels, the brain behind Nazi propaganda, heard culture being discussed, he brought out his revolver. That shows that the Nazis, who were and are the most tragic expression of imperialism and of its thirst for domination--even if they were all degenerates like Hitler, had a clear idea of the value of culture as a factor of resistance to foreign domination.

The Message is Still 'Nonviolence and Forgiveness'?

By Sicebise Msengana

We live in a world in a shadow. Bad things happen everyday and there's nothing we can do about it. However, as we grow we see people doing bad things to other people. We see people discriminate, lynch, brutally beat and kill others. How can we make sense of these atrocious acts committed to innocent people? How do we go about this painful reality?

I'm not a black, I'm an African

By Sicebise Msengana

Isidima nobukhosi base Afrika mabu buye. Translation: African dignity and royalty must be restored.

 I remember there are people who complain about being called Africans. After all, no one would identify with a region filled with savages, cannibals and jungles( which is not supported by facts). Africa is a psychological chain of great shame for the African Diaspora.

Seven Powerful Ways to Deal With Pain

By Sicebise Msengana

A boy named Khulile was born of middle class parents and raised in comfortable surroundings. His father and mother were doctors in a local general hospital. Everything was handed to him in a silver platter. Until one day, something bad happened which changed his life forever.

Here is his story:

 I sat down to do an assignment for my eighth-grade Maths class. I was sitting at the

Up From Slavery

By Sicebise Msengana

Chapter I. A Slave Among Slaves 

I was born a slave on a plantation in Franklin County, Virginia. I am not quite sure of the exact place or exact date of my birth, but at any rate I suspect I must have been born somewhere and at some time. As nearly as I have been able to learn, I was born near a cross-roads post-office called Hale's Ford, and the year was 1858 or 1859. I do not know the month or the day. The earliest impressions I can now recall are of the plantation and the slave quarters--the latter being the part of the plantation where the slaves had their cabins. 

My life had its beginning in the midst of the most miserable, desolate, and discouraging surroundings. This was so, however, not because my owners were especially cruel, for they were not, as compared with many others. I was born in a typical log cabin, about fourteen by sixteen feet square. In this cabin I lived with my mother and a brother and sister till after the Civil War, when we were all declared free.

Black Panther Party Platform, Program, and Rules

By Sicebise Msengana

October 1966 Black Panther Party

Platform and Program

What We Want
What We Believe

1. We want freedom. We want power to determine the destiny of our Black Community.
We believe that black people will not be free until we are able to determine our destiny.
2. We want full employment for our people.
We believe that the federal government is responsible and obligated to give every man employment or a guaranteed income. We believe that if the white American businessmen will not give full employment, then the means of production should be taken from the businessmen and placed in the community so that the people of the community can organize and employ all of its people and give a high standard of living.

I'm Not Afrikan, I'm Negro

By Sicebise Msengana

To analyze the above statement would take volumes of books on philosophy, history, economics, psychology, biology, slave studies and a host of other disciplines. It is the nucleus of a problem that has caused a whole people to change the concept of who they were, their status in the world, and effectively erased the history and culture of their original homeland. The Afrikan was literally written out of the history books from the beginning of the Atlantic slave trade onward. Adjoining those realities, Afrikans were brutally forced to abandon every tradition, custom, ritual, religion,

Go Back to Africa

By Sicebise Msengana

It is difficult not to get angry when hearing the "Go back to Africa" argument. This argument is not about Africa but the so-called kindness of white America. It assumes: white America has been very kind and offered the best parental care ever to Africans, besides the European powers. Black Africans were enslaved and sold by their own African brothers. Chattel slavery was immoral wrong, but whites ended it. Racism ended when Jim Crow laws were abolished. We even voted for the first black president, Barack Obama. Racism is a done deal -- get over it! If black Americans are still suffering, it's their own fault!
