Your skin is the largest organ in your body. It’s true that ‘civilization can only rise where the art of writing is known. It is also true that before there was literature there was Orality. I have written a sub-heading just a little above and called it “Language Reflects Culture, Traditions, Customs Tranditions and I may just add a little and their Meanings, and it was my aim to highlight, denote and connote what language is to a people. The great Sotho novel Chaka by Thomas Mofolo was an indication of the monumentality of this struggle. Mofolo unequivocally condemned pre-modern and pre-colonial African history as essentially barbaric and backward, and ‘Christian’ modernity is represented as the very essence of enlightenment and progress. Without renouncing their Christian beliefs, the founding of ‘independent’ New African newspapers, John Tengo Jabavu’s Imvo Zabantsundu (1884, African Opinion), Solomon T. Plaatje’s Tsala ea Batho (1912, The … Read the rest

The Dutch of the day were the rulers of their “newly discovered” colonies. This was the beginnings of Apartheid(separate development. With the policy of Anglicization of South Africa, the British “sought to replace the Dutch by English in … Read the rest

T – Shirts that are made for men should be worn to enhance your body size in order for you to look like a large build man and not a boy. Cecilia Busby’s analyse of South India and Melanesia found that, despite their similarities, there were many intrinsic differences in how they defined and categorised people. In South India gender is fixed, based on obvious bodily differences between men and women. While in Melanesian the definition of gender is not purely concerned with physical differences, rather, definitions depend on how people act and what they do. All parts of life therefore contribute to gender definitions such as ‘appearance, attributes and work’ (Busby. 1997; 267). In South India men are defined as being able only to act in a male way while women can only act in a female way. Men and women though do need each other to help define … Read the rest

Could the watch become obsolete? “If we do not succeed in this, we will appear in the history of the development of our people as the watershed generation that was unable to insure the unified cultural survival of the African continent; the generation which, out of political and intellectual blindness, committed the error fatal to our national future. We will have been unworthy generation par excellence. You feel confident, powerful, capable and above all happy when you wear your favourite clothes. Fashion makes you feel empowered. When you wear what makes you happy, there is a theory ( as seen here ) that dopamine is released in your brain and gives you the same rush that a drug might give you. Which is the fashion style that makes you this happy that your therapist is out of job!

Language study in all but recent decades has focused on written texts rather than on orality for a readily assignable reason: the relationship of study itself to writing. All thought, including that in primary oral cultures, is to some degree analytic: it breaks its materials into various components. But abstractly sequential, classificatory, explanatory examination of phenomena or of state truths is impossible without writing and reading. He has lodged several unsupportable claims: that the historical writings of Cheikh Anta Diop were false and fabrications that the latest published volume of Unesco General History of Africa , covering the period approximately from the … Read the rest

Men rarely shop for shoes. Concerning the matter on Wole Soyinka, in a recent letter to the Editor of The Times Literary Supplement , Chinweizu has effectively put that charge to waste, even winning the accent of a later English contributor. Concerning the matter in relation to Diop, Fage has been unable to dislodge the historical finds of Cheikh Anta Diop, precisely because they are irrefutable scientific findings. One thing is absolutely certain, and that is, contemporary European liberal historiography on Africa, at least large portions of it, is merely a continuation, though subtle and hidden, of imperial colonial historiography on Africa. This point needs to be paid attention to. We see a culture that is diverse and colorful, not a tribalized backward peoples. We have the same cultural or whatever practices, same language(Some of these were worked on some of my blogs now), the music, dances, traditional dresses and … Read the rest

Facial exfoliant can be made out of mixing a spoonful of sugar and several drops of olive oil. If you want, you can add more of each to exfoliate your entire body. The Black Jacobins is a central emblem in contemporary historiography. But more of immediate relevance to us is its contemporareousness with Aime Cesaire’s Cahier d’un retour au pays natal (Return to My Native Land), published within a year of each other in the middle 1930’s. What James says of Cesaire’s great hymn celebrating the wanderings of the black historical imagination equally applies to his historical works: that it … Read the rest

If you have tried various products for skin care and can not find the ones that work for you, then you might need to buy some sensitive skin care items that will nourish and protect your skin. And I concluded the whole exercise by writing this updated article below.

I hope this strikes a certain cord with many Africans and other people, and maybe that that will help inform and empower them about themselves and their cultures, too.

African socialization practices served to assist communities in da-to-day operations, collective survival, interpersonal relations, and basic quality of life issues. The content of an African education and socialization process contains many components which are modified according to the specific goals and aims of a community at a particular historical timeline and reality. Nonetheless, given the fact that historical knowledge by its very nature is provisional and subject to constant revision, as E.P. Thompson has recently passionately and convincingly argued, the findings of Cheikh Anta Diop should be accepted with an element of caution. The carefully chosen words of the Egyptian historian Gamal Mokhtar, introducing the Unesco General History of Africa volume in which the above-mentioned Diop’s essay appears, cannot … Read the rest
