The terms “Natural” and “Organic” seem to be spreading like wildfire across the store shelves nationwide, creating a lot of confusion about what it really means to be an organic skin product. In a duo of booklets on Africa, which are not widely known and prefigure The World and Africa, DuBois deals with two central issues of African historiography which have found continuation in the historical works of Cheikh Anta Diop. These two nodes are: the contribution of Africa to world civilization and culture, and the reasons for Africa’s cultural stagnation from the 16th century onwards. In these booklets of 1930, respectively Africa, Its Geography, People and Products , and Africa-Its Place in Modern History , he indicates the configuration of these issues. In one of the texts he writes: “Africa is an old and storied continent. When you are in fitting room, take your time in choosing the one that well perfectly fits in you. The benefits of a well-fitting mens suits, however, will be worth the time and the effort. You are better off buying a more expensive but well-fitting suit than an affordable one that is a whole size too big. Probably the best thing about western boots for women is that they could be worn with any style. Whether you want to have a casual look with jeans, a prompt business style with slacks and coat or a more carefree fashion with airy dresses – you can always use cowboy boots. This was important to make note-off, because, we do not have many accounts of our history from our perspective that abound in the Viral soup, and in many books. The many books written about us by foreigners, are just that: Hour history as told by foreigners. In this case, as in the Hub above, this is our story and history as we see, and have experienced it-as we Africans do-also, as Biko had pointed out above about the differences between Western thinking and our own indigenous way of seeing things, that , it is not a matter, as some have pointed out, of us trying to solve or relieve history, only. Yes, it’s what I am expressly doing that, bringing back our past to life alive in the Hub above. I and many of us who are chroniclers of our story and history, are trying very hard to draw and win the conscious consciousness of our people in relation to their culture. That is what the Hub above is about. I will tell the story of Colonialism, for that is the elephant in our cultural room; it is the monkey on our backs and we cannot seem to shake it off nor be able to proudly be of our culture. That is, understanding and know clearly and concretely the cultural significance of music as our culture. You can choose a fashion suit based on your personal taste and style. Whether you are a traditional or a modern styled person, choose a suit style that best fits your image.
The only useful conclusion to be drawn, so far as the origins of most of the present Africans of southern Africa are concerned, are that their ancestors evolved from mingling of indigenous Stone-Age stocks with successive waves of Bantu(African) migration from the north; that these migrations became important at least fifteen hundred years ago; and that they were numerous and powerful, along the banks of Limpopo, from the beginning of our own millennium and probably a good deal earlier (Davidson). The newly elected ANC officials have made it their focus to address their subjects(those who voted for them) in English, that in the end the English language ominously pervades the day-to-day speechifying done by most African people in all the strata of their beleaguered society. This is like the African ruling elite expects their polity to replace their different language and opt for English as a medium of instruction and dialogue- thus replacing themselves, their languages, cultures. customs, traditions, and practices. Soccer kept countering apartheid – white teams knew that to test themselves they had to play against the black teams, and unofficial games became more and more common. The truth became obvious: The white league was second class. Few were surprised at its collapse in 1977. Sono, when he returned from his lucrative stint alongside PelÃ© in the New York Cosmos, made a very political statement in 1982 apartheid South Africa – he bought the white soccer powerhouse, Highlands Park. “From their life experiences, a group develops a set of rules and procedures for meeting their needs. Or, it is the “historically created designs for living, explicit and implicit, rational and non-irrational which may exist at any given time as potential guides for the behavior of man. If you eat healthy, you are going to have a high standard of fitness and a healthy body. This in turn has an effect on your skin. There is no doubt that a healthy diet promotes a healthy body. If your body is healthy, its immunity levels are optimum, which helps it combat various skin problems such as acne, changes in skin color and tone and various other serious skin conditions. Your body remains naturally hydrated and you develop immunity against various health conditions that can also affect your skin in many different ways. Distortions, lies, debasement and put down of Africans have been part of the Apartheid mantra whenever it came to histories and other issues affecting and effecting and relating to Africans of South Africa. Biko succinctly captures this reality above.
