BTR News: Culture Wars and Psychology in the African Diaspora in the Wake of “Woman King”

What is culture and when it comes to “Black” people, what is “our” culture and why do some African Americans reject the culture of their direct ancestors here in the USA? And why do some of us insist on defending the oxymoronic term “Woman King”?

Let’s define what we are talking about as “our” culture.

“Culture is an umbrella term that encompasses the social behavior, institutions, and norms found in human societies, as well as the knowledge, beliefs, arts, laws, customs, capabilities, and habits of the individuals in these groups.[1] Culture is often originated from or attributed to a specific region or location.

Humans acquire culture through the learning processes of enculturation and socialization, which is shown by the diversity of cultures across societies.”

“Psychology is the scientific study of mind and behavior. Psychology includes the study of conscious and unconscious phenomena, including feelings and thoughts. It is an academic discipline of immense scope, crossing the boundaries between the natural and social sciences.”
