In conjunction with her second instalment of lecture series ‘Turning Points in Pan-Africanism’, Kai Mora will join Dr. Nwadiora on ‘The Dr. Emeka Show’ to discuss the significance of Marcus Garvey’s ideological orientation to Pan-African thought and culture.
This conversation will take place on Sunday 6 February from 4pm to 5pm (EST) on WURD Radio 900AM and 96.1 FM, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Both those based in the US and overseas can stream the conversation online – please head to https://wurdradio.com, @ForWURD on Facebook Live or @onwurd on Instagram Live at 4pm EST on the 6th.
Dr. Emeka Nwadiora is a professor of Law, Ethics and Human Behavior at Temple University and has published widely on law, religion, immigration and mental health and the persistent traumatic psychopathologies of enslavement and colonialism. In it’s 17th year, the Dr. Emeka Show discusses the impact of slavery and colonialism from a Pan-African perspective.
‘Garvey has been underestimated regarding the reverence his ideological principles on race and nationalism receivef from the Pan-African world,’ says Mora on her upcoming conversation with Dr. Nwadiora. ‘His continuing relevance amongst scholarly and grassroots spaces alike is manifest in Dr. Nwadiora’s own scholarly reflections on how Garvey democratized the Pan-African world’s approach to de-colonial thinking.’
Marcus Garvey was the Jamaican-born founder of the Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA) which took root in the US but soon flourished throughout the Black Atlantic world. Tapping into the nationalist tradition of 19th century Pan-African leaders such as Toussaint L’Ouverture and Edward W. Blyden, he had aspirations for a great African republic to which the diaspora would repatriate, uniting in the name of racial esteem.
