We're taking a month off due to scheduling but we'll be back in July. Until then we want to leave you with this episode, “What’s Africa Got to Do with Me? This myth corresponds with some of the new episodes we have coming up so we thought this would be a good time to re-air it. Enjoy!

Original description

"Regardless of how one identifies, the facts are clear that the state of Africa has a tremendous impact on our daily lives. The resources stolen from Africa are sold as products in America, the exploitation of Africa funds the system that oppresses us in America, both of the American ghetto and African communities operate as neo-colonies for extraction, and the entire African Diaspora is sold myths of propaganda about each other. We establish these connections by digging into the book "How Europe Underdeveloped Africa" by activist-scholar Walter Rodney.

This episode is premiering on the day that would have been his 79th birthday. March 23rd, Is also our one-year anniversary as a podcast. Thank you to all of our supporters."
