Sista Oloruntoyin (LaToya Manly-Spain) muss sich wegen des Vorwurfs der „Abhaltung einer verbotenen oder nicht angemeldeten Kundgebung und Demonstration trotz Verbots oder polizeilicher Aufforderung zur Auflösung nach § 26 Versammlungsgesetz“ verantworten.

Sista Oloruntoyin (LaToya Manly-Spain) faces criminal charges for allegedly “holding a prohibited or unregistered manifestation and rally in spite of ban or police order to disperse in accordance with Paragraph 26 of the law on assemblies”.

ONLINE WEBINAR
With Sister Ankwetta B. Achaleke
 
!!! Registration mandatory required – pls mail to: academy@blackcommunitycoalition.de !!!
 
Introduction to GloBUNTU
 
“When you learn, teach.”
Dr. Maya Anglou
 
This 3-Part Webinar has been developed is for members of the Black Communities and all African and Afro-Diasporan groups and organisations. It is made up of three progressive interactive sessions. You will get the best out of it by attending all the sessions. The first two sessions are designed to prepare your mind for the final session, which is a facilitated brainstorming session intended to empower you to clearly recognise and express yourself and your needs within the community, without the fear of being judged or misunderstood.
 
The end goal is to assist you to become a vibrant, healthy, engaging and enabling community that sees, understands, respects and encourages the diversity of people, opinions, contributions and collaborations within the Black Communities.

Session 1
Thursday, 30. September 2021 | 20.00h CEST
 
COMMUNITY MATTERS : Session 1 Identity | Self-Worth | Purpose (Facebook-Event)
We are more effective, impactful and fulfilled in life the moment we recognise and fully embrace who we truly are, and what we are worth.”
Ankwetta B. Achaleke
 
In this first session, we focus on core questions such as
Who am I REALLY?
What is my SELF-WORTH? and
What is MY ROLE within the community?
To do this we shall leverage on your multi-dimensional identities paying special attention on attributes such as immigrant, second generation, African, Person of African Descent, African European, Bi-racial etc. At the end of this session you would be able to redefine and recalculate the sum total of yourself- worth and identify ways on how you can best use it to serve yourself and the community.
 
When you know what you are truly worth, you know how to bring yourself to the table and when you know how and where to seat at the table, your presence alone makes all the difference.
 
##############################
 
Session 2
Thursday, 7. October 2021 | 20.00h CEST
 
COMMUNITY MATTERS: Session 2 – The permission to heal (Facebook-Event)
As Africans and People of African Descent brandmarked as immigrants, we are all wounded souls who seek for some form of collective healing by organising ourselves in communities. The truth is that we can’t really honestly heal as a collective, until we the individuals who form these communities have consciously and proactively healed or at least given ourselves the permission to heal.”
Ankwetta B. Achaleke
 
With the knowledge of who you really are, the awareness of yourself worth and your purpose gained from the first session, this one will help you identify areas of your life as individuals and as a community that need personal and collective healing. The practical GloBUNTU Tools and Tips that come with this session will empower you to activate and accept your own healing, as well as help you learn how to proactively engage in and grow your healing as a collective. At the end of the session you will also be able to identify the intersections and overlapping between individual, community, historical/generational and or emotional pains that you need to let go to allow yourself to heal, unapologetically.
 
###############################
 
Session 3
Thursday, 14. October 2021 | 20.00h CEST
 
COMMUNITY MATTERS : Session 3 – How to balance individual and Community Needs (Facebook-Event)
“In ever self-organised community, every voice counts, irrespective of how loud or gentle it is. The moment we learn how to listen to every one of our voices with respect, especially in moments of disagreement, we become stronger and with that we have an advantage over forces outside of our community “
Ankwetta B. Achaleke
 
This adjourning session is a GloBUNTU Facilitated Open Session in the form of an “African Palaver” or “Legotla”. The power of an African Palaver or Legotla session lies in the fact that it is probably the oldest and most participative leadership concept in the world. It is a bottom up concept that brings members of a community together and gives them the time and space to proactively listen to each other, with the ultimate goal of coming out with answers to their own challenges and questions. The beauty of this approach is the fact that when people are have the space to develop their own solutions, they have ownership over them. With that ownership they are in position to expand, extend and grow their solutions at their own pace, whenever needed and on their own terms and conditions. In other words, this concept helps people get to know themselves and their collective wisdom and strength much better. This in turn helps them to tap into their diverse expertise, experiences and strengths to develop their own survival strategies. This process makes them active and valuable members of the community.
 
The mission of this session is to encourage community members to use the knowledge and tools they learned from the two previous sessions to pinpoint and share their current challenges, expectations, opinions, fears, insecurities etc. The facilitation process will assist them to come out with enabling tools and tips that they can repeatedly use to better navigate their daily live as individuals and as a community during and beyond the current pandemic.

The Role of Religion in the Struggle for total Afrikan Emancipation

Academy for Black Studies, African Culture & Heritage

Free Lecture Series for Adults & Children of African Descent

Registration: academy@blackcommunitycoalition.de

This event has to be postponed from September 5th to September 12th due to power shortage in Guyana with a shortly announced power cut today on September 5th.
 

NEW DATE: 12.09.2021 | 15-17H

We apologize for any inconveniences connected to short notice and change of date!
 
This event will address the social function of religion, the role of imperial theologies and the concept of total emancipation.
What is the role of religion as a determinant of what we believe and how we should act and respond as Africans to emancipate ourselves from „Mental slavery“?
 
When we look at most African countries, we find that religion is a social aspect which determines identity. This issue of religion is often partly the cause of the problems that are destroying traditional knowledges and practices in our communities. In all African societies, indigenous and imported religions have influenced our shared collective history in one way or another.
 
Gerald A. Perriera will shed light on the origin of imported colonizing religions and highlight the importance of religion for emancipation and liberation.
Has the quest for unity and emancipation been compromised by religions?
Can the quest for unity and emancipation be divorced from the inherent beliefs in different religions?
This lecture aims to raise awareness and understanding of religion derived from a shared African experience and identity.
