8 PM EST - “The last four or five hundred years of European contact with Africa produced a body of literature that presented Africa in a very bad light and Africans in very lurid terms. The reason for this had to do with the need to justify the slave trade and slavery.” - Chinua Achebe

The Context of White Supremacy welcomes Dr. Umar Abdullah Johnson for the tenth time. Dr. Umar is a proud descendant of author and freedom fighter Frederick Douglass and a nationally recognized School Psychiatrist. He’s the author of Psycho-Academic Holocaust and has been featured in the documentary series Hidden Colors. We look forward to getting his thoughts on the passing of third generation physician Dr. Frances Cress Welsing as well as the more recent loss of musical prodigy Prince – and the rumors about him being a no count drug fiend. As Dr. Umar maintains that destructive medication of black people represents one of the more important stages of White Supremacy, we’ll get his perspective on whether legalizing cannabis would benefit black people. We’ll also ask for suggestions on what black parents can do to combat efforts to suspend black children and retard their education.
