OAH simply asks, has the lack of embrace for our culture caused us to be powerless and the beggar of all races. Why do we not celebrate and embrace our culture and ancient customs and traditions? In the island of Barbados why do we not celebrate one ancient Afrikan custom but we can celebrate Halloween?
We cannot say it is because we have no knowledge of our customs in honesty. Can we say it is then because we really do not love ourselves? We say we love ourselves but do we really? Why do we still get married in the Euro-centric custom of the white dress and whole nine yards? Why do we learn Spanish and French and in times gone Latin and not one single Afrikan language? I put it to you that maybe deep down inside we are ashamed of being Afrikan, being Black. What are we prepared to do about it?
We ask each member of the OAH family to purchase a copy of the magazine and support cultural revolutionist and the cultural revolution in Barbados. Only we can make that change for the sake of the future generations of Afrikans here in the west.
