The Talking Drum Collective



We are asking for the Unity and collaboration of all Pan-Afrikans, Afrocentricists, activists, and grassroots organizations, websites, mailing lists, news services, individuals, students and etc. to get involved with Grassroots Call to Action/Action Alert Campaign.

  Periodically we will issue a "Call to Action" that addresses some problem that plagues the poor, disenfranchised, wrongfully imprisoned, undereducated, unemployed, culturally broken and politically destitute. If you believe in the spirit of ACTION and the POWER of PEOPLE, we ask you to join us.

  1. Why Should We Care About What's Going On In Central Asia?

    From The Ramparts
    Junious Ricardo Stanton
    Why Should We Care About What's Going On In Central Asia?


    On one of the Websites that carries my blog/column From The Ramparts , in the post a comment section, a Sistah inquired what the significance of my posting about the situation in South Ossetia was; and what did that situation have to do with the “black cause”? First of all, the essence of my article was, we (people of African ascent) were sleeping while a potential flashpoint for WWIII was being ignited in South Ossetia. For numerous reasons we should be aware of and concerned about what is going on not only in South Ossetia, the Caucasus region but the whole world. Why? Because the same ...

  2. Setting The Record Straight

    Setting The Record Straight
    Junious Ricardo Stanton

    On July 3 the Avenging The Ancestors Coalition held their annual Black Independence Day Memorial on the site of the soon to be constructed Liberty Bell Center at 6th and Market Streets in Philadelphia. This site ironically is where George Washington held in brutal captivity nine Africans who served him without pay while he served as the first president of the United States. Since 2002 ATAC has attempted to raise awareness of the vicious legacy of slavery and have that complex narrative included in the telling of America’s history. Telling the truth will enable all people to appreciate know how this country really developed and the important role Africans played ...

    AmeriKKKa Is Sinking Deeper Into Fascist Quicksand

    “The mainstream media is dominated by a handful of mega corporations who control what many of us hear, read, and believe. The propaganda masters are censoring and suppressing the truth from the American people. There are many reporters who know the truth but dare not talk or write about it, and what some report they don't even believe themselves. Those who are courageous enough to stand up to the establishment are often ridiculed, intimidated, and blocked by editors and producers who are acting as gatekeepers to the truth. There have been calls for the arrests and even death of those who criticize the government. You know you have slipped into a fascist dictatorship when those ...

  5. Tim Russert's Death Gives US Media Some Breathing Room

    Tim Russert’s Death Gives US Media Breathing Room

    “The notion that Russert asked the “tough questions” of those he interviewed, advanced by a host of former colleagues on a tribute broadcast this Sunday in place of “Meet the Press,” is absurd. During the run-up to the war, Russert, along with the rest of the media, provided a platform for Vice President Dick Cheney and others to present their lying claims about Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction without seriously calling any of them into question. On March 16, 2003, only days before the US-led invasion of Iraq, Russert virtually handed his program over to Cheney, providing the latter with a propaganda opportunity in front of a large national audience, much of it skeptical about ...

Eyes Of The Rainbow Deals With The Life Of Mama Assata Shakur

Sep 11, 2012 - 11:13 PM - by XXPANTHAXX
XXPANTHAXX's Avatar
"Like most poor people in the United States, I have no voice. The Black press and the progressive media, as well as Black civil rights organizations, have historically played an essential role in the struggle for social justice. We should continue and expand that tradition. We should create media outlets that help to educate our people and our children, and not annihilate their minds. I am only one woman. I own no TV stations or radio stations or newspapers. But I believe that people need to be educated as to what is going on and to understand the connection between the news media and the instruments of repression in America. All I have are my voice, my spirit and the will to tell the truth. But I sincerely ask those of you in the Black media, those of you in the progressive media and those of you who believe in truth and freedom to publish my story." -Assata Shakur

Video, color, 47 min, 1997
Director of Photography: Raul Rodriguez, Jose M. Riera
Script and Director: Gloria Rolando

"Eyes of the Rainbow" deals with the life of Assata Shakur, the Black Panther and Black Liberation Army leader who escaped from prison and was given political asylum in Cuba, where she has lived for close to 30 years. In it we visit with Assata Shakur in Havana and she tells us about her history and her life in Cuba.

Gloria Rolando on "Eyes of the Rainbow":

"In the struggle of the African American people, many women's voices in the past and the present have always called for social justice, women who throughout the years have shown integrity and firmness in their principles. For... [Read More]

DECEMBER ACTION ALERT: Morehouse College Police Beat Up Civil Rights Leader !!!

DECEMBER 2005 ACTION ALERT
Main Page of This Alert: December 2005 Action Alert, Assata Shakur Speaks


TITLE:Morehouse Police Beat Up Civil Rights Leader!


TIME FRAME: 1 Month

PLAN OF ACTION:
Contact Morehouse College and Morehouse Police Department and demand that an act of police brutality perpetrated against civil rights icon Mukasa Dada (Willie Ricks) are corrected and that he is compensated for his injuries.

Protest Police Brutality!

PURPOSE OF ACTION:
Rectify an act of police brutality against Mukasa Dada, formerly named Willie Ricks, creator of the term "Black Power" and pioneering civil rights activist.

Morehouse police beat up Civil Rights Leader and Elder, Mukasa Dada former known as Willie Ricks of Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), on Thursday, November 10, 2005 at Morehouse College. As a Field Secretary for SNCC and overall freedom fighter for Black people in general, we feel this attack by Morehouse Police is dishonorable, appallingly contradictory, and a slap in the face to all Black Leadership past, present, and future. Mukasa Dada’s history in the civil rights movement, Black power movement, and all Black... [Read More]
