~ PUUR's mission is to share the General History of Africa written by UNESCO to help Blacks reclaim their cultural identity; rectify the ignorance propagated by white writers, the slave trade, and colonization; counter the affects of forced assimilation / acculturation; and promote an African perspective with which to analyse current events. This ‘new’ history of Africa is mentally, emotionally, and psychologically transformative as, for example, it was for Detroit Red who emerged Malcolm X after learning his African history. Once intellectually ingested, like miracle substance, Blacks and non-white people of color are equipped to counter, neutralize, and abrogate the system or racism/white supremacy…once and for all.

To know who the hip hop artists are, listen to Gloria Ladson-Billings on Youtube:
I know an hour video maybe long, but 3 hours for whole of 2018 isn’t that long.
