DANCEHALL GENERALS… A STORY OF LIBERATION, is a production of the OUR AFRIKAN HERITAGE MAGAZINE. Fusing the ancient Afrikan art of storytelling with a modern expression of dance and music, which are key constructs in the Afrikan experience, OAH has birthed DANCEHALL GENERALS. The essence and intent of this production was to create an alternative method to disseminate information as it pertains to Libya, General Mummar Gaddafi, NATO and the events that surrounded this sovereign Afrikan state in the year 2011.
OAH has taken the position that Afrika is a sovereign nation and should be treated as such. We are not here to over glorify Mummar Gaddafi, but to bring balance to thwarted media coverage on Libya, the general and the intent of western interest in the name of NATO. OAH will clearly show without a doubt that what has been enacted on the people of Libya was a crime to humanity. One that cannot be overlooked as it has dire consequences to the development and empowerment of not only Libya but the rest of the Afrikan continent. How will the criminal actions of NATO impact on world politics and inevitably world war. It is clear that respect for other nation’s sovereignty is no consideration of western powers that be. How will others react when NATO comes calling at their doors.
What do the events being portrayed here have to do with us in Barbados and other parts of the world? Yes we are aware that Afrika is our homeland of origin but how does what we speak of here affect us? I will leave that question open ended as I hope we can discuss and share our opinions here at OAH. One of our great heroines stated “I freed a thousand slaves I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves.” It is the view of OAH that we can do more for Afrika and the Afrikan reality if only we could see that, we are Afrikans and that we can help ourselves and our future generations by actively participating in the fight for Afrikan Redemption and Liberation.
From the OAH production DANCEHALL GENERALS… A LIBERATION STORY that was hosted on the 19th November 2011, a DVD has been produced to further this action of proactive and creative methods of awareness building in our communities. DANCEHALL GENERALS… A LIBERATION STORY the documentary is now available from the OAH website for international viewership and from various outlets in Barbados. We ask you to view the trailers of this DVD and assist with work and development of the OAH magazine by purchasing a copy of DANCEHALL GENERALS. Again it is hoped that this DVD coupled with the questions asked earlier by OAH will result in meaningful discourse between our readership. Please always keep in mind that by our discussions we help give each other strength, direction, understanding and resolve as it pertains to OUR AFRIKAN HERITAGE.
OAH GIVE MUCH THANKS FOR ALL SUPPORT GIVEN. WE CALL ON OUR ANCESTORS TO LIFT US UP AND STRENGTHEN US IN OUR BATTLE TO RECLAIM WHAT IS RIGHTFULLY OURS.
