(Ep 226) Black History Month
“There are some efforts to celebrate a so-called ‘Negro History Week,’ and some of my people will participate. The planning of that week to teach the slave a knowledge of his past is not complete, sufficient or comprehensive enough to enable my people to learn the true knowledge of themselves.  It is important that my people learn the true knowledge of self, as it means their salvation….The American Negro is without knowledge of self. You are a so-called Negro because you are "not" a Negro. ” “There is much misunderstanding among us because of our inferior knowledge of self. We have been to the schools where they do not teach us the knowledge of self. We have been to the schools of our slave-master’s children. We have been to their schools and gone as far as they have allowed us to go. That was not far enough for us to learn a knowledge of self.  The lack of knowledge of self is one of our main handicaps. It blocks us throughout the world. If you were the world and you were a part of the world, you would also turn a man down if he did not know who he actually was. If we, the so-called Negroes, do not know our own selves, how can we be accepted by a people who have a knowledge of self?”  Excerpts from ‘Message to the Blackman in America’, by Elijah Muhammad If you would like to engage with the Nurah Speaks podcast, submit your listener questions or topic suggestions to info@NurahSpeaks.com.  Listeners can also learn more about Nurah by visiting her website:  NurahSpeaks.com.

(Ep 225) I Disagree With Marc Lamont Hill

(Ep 225) I Disagree With Marc Lamont Hill
PLEASE READ the show notes to this episode. I caution the listener against hearing this episode as an attack on Marc Lamont Hill.  I believe the points wherein I disagree are important and bear sharing. However anyone who has followed Nurah Speaks understands that I do not take shots or make personal attacks on this show.  Nor is it my intention to ‘be in men’s faces,’ so to speak.   I do encourage healthy debate and exchange of ideas and I believe the principles shared in this episode are valid and valuable.  But we do not do messy at Nurah Speaks.   For context:  Marc Lamont Hill posted a video on YouTube titled "Cam'ron Gets Strong CLAP BACK From Marc Lamont Hill For Rejecting African American Identity".  That episode is in response to Cam’ron choosing Black rather than African American as his identity.  While I disagree with Marc Lamont Hill, this episode is not a ‘Clap Back To The Clap Back.’  I do believe it is an important subject as it relates to the linkage of Black people throughout the world and I share my perspective on the topic.  I do look forward to our feedback on the episode.
