By Any Means Necessary

Culture is a Weapon! Makungu Akinyela

Culture is at the heart of the Movement for the liberation of Black people in the USA as well as internationally. It is through culture, the way we move, the way we sing and make music, the way we cook and dress, and the way we talk to each other and spend time with each other that we create the collective national identity that we call New Afrikan. Our New Afrikan culture, whether it is expressed musically in blues, gospel, jazz or hip hop, or whether it’s expressed aesthetically in dashikis and head wraps or in sagging pants and cutoffs, shapes our struggle and is shaped by the struggle. It is important as we build our struggle that we pay attention to and honor the rich deep African culture that has developed here in colonized New Afrika over the past 400 years. It is a culture of resistance and liberation. It is the source of the voice of our nation. For these and many more reasons we here at BAMN News Service see the importance of regular discussions, presentations, and expressions of our people’s culture which is at the center of our revolutionary development.
