Necessary Blackness Podcast Ep: 50 – Land or Death

Rahiem Shabazz, Land Or Death, Necessary Blackness Podcast

 

In this episode of Necessary Blackness Podcast, we talk about White South Africans relinquishing the land to its rightful owners without any compensation and why an important move such as this signifies the dawn of a new day in terms of freedom for Black Africans.

The Honorable Elijah Muhammad said, “it’s our enemies desire to keep pour eyes in the sky and to control the land under our feet”.

In the 2nd half of the podcast, we speak about White Nationalist teacher Tiana Dalichov and how she teaches racism and white supremacy to her students and how she went undetected until her podcast was discovered.

My guest this week is Shannon, who just returned from South Africa.

Elementary Genocide 3: Academic Holocaust 1st Look Trailer

 

Elementary Genocide 3: Academic Holocaust is the latest installment in the award winning documentary series. We seek to explore how the “Murder In The Streets, Same As Intellectual Murder In The Classroom”. The documentary features notables such as Prof. James Small, Kaba Keme, David Banner, Shahrazad Ali, Michael Imhotep and many more.

 

 

 

The Elementary Genocide documentary series did exceptionally well and made it to Amazon’s top 10 list of documentaries for 4 consecutive weeks in the U.S. & U.K. We anticipate the last installment will exceed our expectations.

We have over 50 hours of footage. We almost done with a 65-minute rough draft. We still need to film a few selective scenes that will add emotional intensity. We also need to pay for archival footage, audio enhancement and color correction.

Post production, any filmmaker will tell you, is even more expensive than actual production. The funds we raise from this campaign will go directly to the basic enhancements we need so that we can screen in front of an audience & get the film out there for distribution.
