In publishing my book, Black Power: Our God-Given Call to Make America Great, I ended up taking a hiatus from producing this podcast. And that hiatus has helped reframe the show in transformative ways! And in this episode, I share how those changes will be transformative for you!
We’ve got to be more intentional about everything, if we’re going to be prepared for the political and economic struggles facing Black people in America and beyond. And I have to practice what I preach. So, I spent some time asking myself questions to clarify the Black Power Mission.
- What would really make a show entitled Blacks with Power resonate with you?
- What would make the concept of Black Power more embraceable?
I know, many of us have a touchy relationship with Black power. White supremacy has made us afraid to embrace it. The narrative on Black power is that it’s somehow dangerous and therefore undesirable. In America, to embrace Black power is essentially to ostracize yourself and upset any chance of enjoying a good life.
But what if that did not have to be the case? Even better – what if Black power were actually the key to Black people securing “the blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our posterity?” Would you embrace it then?
In order to help you decide to embrace this concept more openly, I’m going to spend this season releasing shows to further explain how I view Black Power. And, I’m relying on your open and honest questions and comments.
So pay attention to that final question I ask in this episode. Then join the Facebook group and let’s have a real – solutions oriented – conversation. I’d love to know your thoughts and our group will benefit from your presence.
