[Video+Slides] Okunini Ọbádélé Kambon AND Nana Mawiyah Kambon Alavanyo #3 Presentation: The Negative Effects of “positive” Black Images in the Media
In this presentation, Okunini Ọbádélé Kambon and Nana Mawiyah Kambon go deep into what happens when our enemies determine the domain of discourse and sell images to us that are out of alignment with the Afrikan=Black worldview and our vision of our collective past, present, and future. The problems associated with these images are compounded when we pay millions to our enemies, effectively financing our own oppression, by allowing them to decide what the nature of the images that we will see will be and the price for seeing them. Nana Mawiyah, in turn, will go into the psychological effects of images that may appear “positive” on the surface but in actuality are still harmful. She will also discuss those who are still in trauma who are looking for hope in movies. After delineating the problem, Okunini Ọbádélé Kambon and Nana Mawiyah will then go into solutions whereby Kmtyw (Afrikan=Black) people control our own images, ensure that those images are in alignment with our worldview (Maat) and control the media through which those images will be projected to the waiting eyes and minds of our children. For a divergent perspective, you must attend this talk and follow-up discussion that promises to be well-researched, informative and transformative. This presentation will immediately follow the Alavanyo #3 film screening.
