Episode 7: What Is Black Culture?

MindSight Collective Podcast is a monthly pro-Black ‘act’ tank podcast hosted by writer, strategist, psychologist, speaker, and activist Dionne Williams. Every 2nd  Wednesday Dionne shares her thoughts on current issues and the psychological conditioning that is affecting the Black community and discusses strategies with her special guests to improve the mind and soul that leads to African liberation, one mind at a time.

In this episode for Black History Month in the UK, we speak to Zozer Amun, about defining Black Culture and how it is under attack, exploited and appropriated by other races.

Coming up on the podcast:

  • The mantra for the show “I am my ancestors’ wildest dream.”
  • I interview Renaissance Man, Spiritual teacher and rapper, Zozer Amun aka Senti.

EYEAM Mantra

Today Our Mantra is “I am my ancestors’ wildest dream.”

You are a miracle, did you know that?  Scientists estimate the probability of you being born at about one in 400 trillion! So the odds that you are here on this plane we call earth randomly is zero! Then to add to the mix, our ancestors were captured, stolen to work as slaves across the Atlantic Ocean or survive the African holocaust at the hands of Europeans once they got to the African shores, and then they had to fight for the right to be recognised as a human being. All that they went through so you can be here, listening to this podcast. This is a miracle! We are living at the time of Earth’s history where we have a fighting chance not only to dream but to fulfill them. You are in fact your ancestors wildest dreams.

Every time you feel like there is no hope for our people, remember with each generation it will get better for them to unlearn, re-learn and once again rule their destinies with freedom. We cannot for one second feel like we are just a grain of sand in comparison to the universe. You are the universe. You are the impossible made possible. Our ancestors believed in their struggle and fought for a world where we can be black, magnificent, strong, and liberated. We thank every man and woman that came before us so we can live to fight for another day and can carry their light into the future.

Say with me, “I am my ancestors’ wildest dreams”. Ase!
