The Great Harlem Debate
While support for Obama among Afrikans is overwhelming, various critics have emerged representing diverse perspectives on the dangers of the Obama’s ascension to de facto world-ruler.
The outstanding question remains: Is the election of Barack Obama good or bad for Afrikan peoples?
On Sunday, December 14, 2008, around 1500 people met at Harlem’s Salem United Methodist Church to hear speakers representing both sides of the debate.
Tonight on the show we’ll hear a selection of debaters, including:
- Black Agenda Report editor Glen Ford
- Black Studies professor Leonard Jeffries
- NYC Councilman Charles Barron
- Education advocate Dr. Donald Smith, and
- Dr. Adelaide Sanford.
The event was moderated by Dr. James McIntosh, Co-Chair, Committee to Eliminate Media Offensive to African People (CEMOTAP).
