  1. The colonial legacy lives. It lives in the English we speak as well as in all the other European languages Afrikans have been forced to learn in Afrika and throughout the diaspora.
    Buried are not just Commission and other reports, but millions of lives of every hue-man in every land by all whose greed transforms their power into lethal abuse.
    David Muhammad’s Sunday evening lectures on Gayelle complement your work here Afra, and we are chained into compliance by severe legal, economic, religious, academic and social realities that together renders non-compliance illogical and fatal.
    Until we acknowledge the centrality of language to the actualization of our identifying as Afrikans, we remain tacitly enslaved.
