Did you know #propaganda can take many different forms? British Intelligence was known for using #occultists like Louis De Wohl for #BlackPropaganda

According to author Annie Jacobsen, De Wohl's mission in #America was to remove the #occult stigma from #stargazing and to elevate it into the realm of "astro-philosophy" with the goal of changing public #opinion.
In 1941, as war was raging across Europe, De Wohl had a syndicated column in #America called "Stars Foretell" that always emphasized the #Nazi Threat.

A convo not too long about how Arkansas and Kansas happened ("Ar-Can-Saw" and "Kan-zas"), got me to thinking we don't talk nearly as much as we should about how names are used to erase histories. So sit back #NativeTwitter, lemme tell you about the #Caribbean.
First, Conquerors and Settlers frequently have no idea what they're talking about. That should be fairly obvious. It's why the Lakota are also "the Sioux" and the Lenape are also "The Deleware". It's all gibberish and nonsense when settler naming gets involved.
So it is with "Kansas" and "Arkansas". One's French and the other's Spanish/English for 'Land of the Kansa'. See, easy, two states, whose pronunciations were popularized by two different phonemic culture groups, and the same spelling suddenly gets all nonsensical.

#PuertoRico #USA #PuertoRicoEarthquakes

#PuertoRico still doesn't seem calm after so many #storms, and this Saturday there was a new 6.0 MI magnitude #earthquake on the momentum magnitude scale as part of a series of #aftershocks that have intensified since Friday night.
According to Prensa Latina, the meteorological phenomenon occurred in #Guánica, 14.87 kilometers south of #Peñuelas, at a depth of 5.04 kilometers.
On the other hand, the #NationalGuard of #PuertoRico considered declaring the island a #disaster area in order to receive additional funds after the #earthquakes.

Ghana is set to grant citizenship to 200 African Americans as part of celebrations of the 'Year of Return 2019’.

The occasion would mark the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the first African slaves in America
#africanamerican #black #ADOS #caribbean #slavetrade #repatriation
The government of Ghana launched the “Year of Return, Ghana 2019” as part of efforts to encourage African Americans and the black diaspora to return to the homeland where their ancestors were kidnapped and sold into slavery many centuries ago.
#africa #diaspora #homeland
In 2000, Ghana passed the “Right of Abode” law making it the first African country to officially open its doors to people of African descent from all over the world.

The law allows any person of African descent to apply and be granted the right to stay in Ghana indefinitely.

Headed out to my fave city in America for a 100th birthday tribute to a legend - Henry Roeland Byrd, aka #ProfessorLonghair.🤩

#Fess #NOLA #jazz #jass
So a lot of y'all don't know who Professor Longhair is, despite knowing his protégées #DrJohn, #FatsDomino, & #AllenToussaint - even those of you who consider yourselves #Jazz aficionados.

There's one reason for that: extreme poverty.
Although the blues and boogie-woogie Black musicians from Mississippi & Louisiana who made it up the river to Chicago found a wealthy white audience, Black musicians who remained in Southern states didn't have that - & thus remain underappreciated or unknown.
