My primary interest is the embattled state of black people throughout the world. I am convinced that in our time, the principal battle is for relevance. Once upon a time Pan-Africanism and Black Nationalism were platforms to unify the Diaspora and reclaim our identity. Ironically, our battle now is nameless and is a battle simply to be relevant in global dynamics. The thoughts here are dedicated to that broad aim. They cover the spectrum of my own evolution of thoughts.
