RBG as Re-Afrikanization Symbolism:

Who We Were vs Who We Are


“Mass media have played and will continue to play a crucial role in the way white Americans perceive African-Americans. As a result of the overwhelming media focus on crime, drug use, gang violence, and other forms of anti-social behavior among African-Americans, the media have fostered a distorted and pernicious public perception of African-Americans”.

In light of the above stated fundamental truth, all of RBGz EduTainment / teaching-learning methodologies and content are presented in the tradition and spirit of Afrikan Symbolism (as well as our oral / musical tradition) as this is the way we learn, interpret and experience the world as Afrikan people. So we are applying a traditional philosophical precept in the context of our westernized experience to project us in a positive and unified manner, working together doing what we do best for the collective advancement of the group. It is the reason why one of our rules of engagement is “a picture (image/symbol) is worth more than a thousand words”. RBGz images/symbols are what make you think (Think Tank) and learn so intently, and also what makes you feel so inspired. So we teach the same lessons on multiple levels to strike a responsive cord with our whole family by integrating all four forms of media (image, audio, video and text) in any given lesson/topic/subject. This is important to do because if our young people don’t see themselves in what we want them to learn then how can we blame the for not wanting to learn it! Hence the problem with us and Euro-education (mis-education and dis-education). Furthermore, we are also demonstrating computer skills that you will not learn at M.I.T., but are nonetheless more in keeping with our way.

In all cases RBGz presentations / lessons are simply saying what the great Afrikan religious philosopher John Mbiti says in “African Religion and Philosophy”

“i am because We are and because We are therefore i am”

You give me your work / ideas/ energy & warrior spirit and I synthesize and integrate them into the various curricula and give them back to you by first applying my knowledge, skills and creative abilities to them and thus, our now having a scholarly product in our own image and interest that will hold you til you put it down and is accessible/understandable by the masses. It is based on a concept I derived and coined as ACCNL “Afrikan Centered Collaborative Network Learning” That is what makes the college uniquely Ours…A communiversity in the literal since of the word. RBG doesn’t use computer apps. linearly like Europeans designed, developed and/program them, as that is the way they think. The communiveristy is Afrikan in it conceptual framework, ie. concentric / circular in its functionality. Thus, I push the limits of modern day Web 2.0 , in an academic context, to reaches yet matched heights by saying “Let The Circle Be Unbroken”.This is why I say
“RBG as Re-Afrikanization Symbolism”.
All you need do to feel what I’m saying is go back up about mid-page where the RBG image player is to the right (Who We Are/Our current shit-uation is being projected) and to the left is flashing Who We Were (positive images).

The more you read/study the school the more you will see the symbolism being applied in real time…My photo-story mini-lectures/videos become deeper as you study more because the same images/photos/symbols continue to tell Our-Story on a deeper level elsewhere in the school. Thus, symbolism is the building block which preps you for deeper layered learning.

We do this because I believe that in order to bring about our re-unification indeed, We must first see ourselves as such. It is why the school is totally for, by and about us-Afrikan people.

RBG is a smart, academically comprehensive and positive EduTainment center suitable for the whole Afrikan family. It is designed and deployed to purposefully counter the corporate white elite/white supremacist (racist) media images of us in the form of a school; using their technology and our razor sharp intelligence and undeniable/ well documented truths. It is an intermediary in our total “return to the source”.

Symbolism is at the foundation of our efforts to research, rescue and restore Who We Were.
The potency of symbolism in our traditional Afrikan cultural way (see below) is why I write the whole school in the image of Red, Black and Green and say RBG4Lif. It is our most lethal weapon in de-colonizing the Afrikan mine and reversing the deculturalization process. (Who We Are).

The links/extensions below will enable you to do your due diligence to further assimilate what I’m saying; and study the precepts most directly.
