African Historian - Dr.Cheikh Anta Diop

Dr. Cheikh Anta Diop

This Senegalese scholar, scientist, author and historian has documented 
much of Africa's illustrious past. He has inspired others to take up his
mantle and continue his work.

 I'm not going to try and rewrite anything here since there volumes
dedicated to his work. I think these videos I found on youtube will
pique your interest. 

Hopefully "Black History Month 2009" will give you something to
think about for the rest of the year.

Guerilla Funk Recordings

Guerilla Funk Recordings- positive/conscious hip hop and more.

About Guerrilla Funk

Guerrilla Funk Recordings was born out of necessity. It's a musical organization that was founded by Paris - the politically conscious artist best known for the incendiary song "Bush Killa" - that counters the corporate stranglehold of censorship currently plaguing the entertainment industry. It provides balance in this intolerant climate of suppression of free speech and artistic expression, and serves as a vehicle for those who are unable - not because of lack of talent or relevance - to be heard. There now exists a harmful double-standard at most record labels of endorsing artists who only espouse misogyny, mindless violence, and drug culture references in their music -- while at the same time ignoring artists who strive to enlighten and inspire. It is our pledge at Guerrilla Funk Recordings not to follow suit.

What can I say? It's informative, it's entertaining and
 it's there for you. Go check out all of the material and
visit regularly because it's not static they stay up to date.
