RBG Street Scholars Think Tank argues that Afrikans in America are too isolated from each other, and as a result many problems in African peoples lives are more frequently than not misunderstood as “personal,” or as the results of conflicts between the personalities of individual Black and White people; rather than realizing our issues as being part and parcel to the systematic forms of oppression we are all subject to here in Amerikkka as a group. Thus, for our school Raising Consciousness means helping oneself and helping others in the group become socio – politically conscious and culturally oriented. More specifically, RBG SSTT’s Consciousness Raising EduTainment process aimed at providing the learner with a better overstanding of the question “what is oppression and what is liberation” by bringing us together in a social education environment to share, discuss and analyze our lives as a collective (a Nation within a Nation) and how we must proceed to achieve National Liberation and Self Determination; without interference from the presence of outsiders.

This convention of delegates, including Imari Obadele(who was later elected president of the Black Nation) gave that Nation of People a name, the Republic of New Afrika. The Republic of New Afrika took the concept of Black Nationalism to its ultimate stage when, in 1968, it declared Black People to be free and independent of the United States government…Read More
