Can you help me with the
following request:
"I'm looking for movie or TV scenes, poems or
songs – or other pop-cultural references – that
illustrate “chronic exposure to racial
discrimination” and its impact on coping/mental
health and well-being. Can you suggest some
good examples? Any that focus on black women?"

I am a fan of Reclamation Gallery

21st Century
by Counsel General of
UNIA-ACL Faruq Muhammad

For more than a decade, the Nationalism and Pan Africanist
movement has been all but dormant with regards to advancing any
call in this direction.  Oh yes, there has been much talk still about
who is and who is not a Nationalist/Pan Africanist; but I for one have
not seen, and certainly have not felt anything tangible being done
about repatriation and our rights to Self-Determination.  True, a
great deal of work is being done around reparations; but I won’t be
satisfied being just another “nigger with money” and no true freedom.

I say it’s time for our people to come out of legal slavery.  I say it’s time to
put Nationalism and Pan Africanism BLACK on the front burner where it
belongs.  Well, I say to you, that it is a huge pleasure of mine to be able to
inform you that the UNIA-ACL has a legal program that will allow us to
come out of legal slavery.  It is also with great pride that I announce that
the UNIA-ACL has the means to put Nationalism and Pan Africanism as a
paramount force to be reckoned with.  The UNIA-ACL has that program
that will take us well into the 21st Century as we should be.

Only now are the masses of our people waking up to the fact that the Honorable
Marcus Garvey and the UNIA-ACL operated a Global Interim Government for almost a
decade more than 80 years ago!!  At no time before or after this period has any other
Black person been able to accomplish such a massive feat has having a Global Black
Government . . . and guess what:?  That exact same legacy remains with us and for us
even today.  Under the direction and leadership of the Honorable Redman Battle, the
8th successor to the Honorable Marcus Garvey, I was commissioned to restore this
awesome legacy and to put it into a contemporary format so that our future
generations can have a true and viable alternative to the legal slavery that we now
subsist under.  

In order to undertake this gigantic mission, I have created the Legal Defense
Committee which will be composed of persons with any and all degrees of legal and
research skills and composed of people who specialize in fundraising, administrative
and organizational abilities.  A formal Call To Legal Arms has been made and a New
movement will take place wherein “legal people” will be at the vanguard.  Not one
person here or there, and not a small law office, but a Legal Army will be built to
provide that protection on a local, national and international level that the Nationalist
and Pan Africanist movement has never seen.

Even as I write this, the blood-sucking enemies and exploiters of our people still have
their bloody fangs into the neck of the UNIA-ACL, stealing or trying to water down the
legal legacy left for us to maintain and develop our full and complete freedom – and I
have pledged everything I have to put an end to this evil.  Never before in the history of
Nationalism and Pan Africanism has there ever been a Legal Army to protect our
struggles towards restoring our legal right to Self-Determination.  That time is now
Seriously Overdue.  Everything about a Legal Right to Self-Determination is based
upon, what else, the law?!

The community activist, the politician, the minister, and even the students, have been
at the forefront of the struggle.  It’s time to put 300 lawyers at the vanguard and see
what happens.  Law along with cooperative economics gives the restoration and
contemporary application of what was left to us:  an invincible armor for Self-
Determination.  We are talking about a New law, a Black law. . . a date and time in the
very near future.  Forget the BAR.  Set up your own law practice as our people will need
legal workers of all kinds.

Yeah, I’ve heard.  Some of you are worried about your mortgages, school loans and
retirement programs.  An excellent reason why we need to enjoin our youth to get
involved now.  Our government, OUR story needs to be taught in every Black
classroom in the world.  This was a Global movement established in over 40
countries, so think International Black Law.  Then you can also see career and
business opportunities that could cause an economic shift on a global scale.

I call upon those who still believe in the ten point program of “What the Muslims Want”
that was established by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and published on the back
page of every Muhammad Speaks and Final Call newspaper.  We have the means to
put some legal bite into this program.

I call upon those followers of Prophet Nobel Drew Ali, the Republic of New Africa, the
Black Lawyers for Justice, the New and Old Black Panther Party to unite with the legacy
that gave birth to you all and whose legacy has remained unbroken (although very
dormant) for much too long now.  I also plead with the African Spiritual Houses and all
Spiritual Nationalist/Pan Africanist, to also share the vanguard of this movement along
with our Legal Army as unless we put God at the head of this effort, we cannot be

Chapters of the Legal Defense Committee are already being formed.

Don’t think we mean to harm you if we touch your confused mind and pull you into
BLACKNESS.  We only want to bring you home!

(was) not an isolated
struggle. All our struggles
must tie in together and

We must remain on the
