On this episode of Conscientization 101 podcast, we have a round table discussion with Dr. Julian Kunnie (The Cost of Globalization: Dangers to the Earth and Its People and Is Apartheid Really Dead? Pan Africanist Working Class Cultural Critical Perspectives) and Dr. João Costa Vargas (Catching Hell In The City Of Angels: Life And Meanings Of Blackness In South Central Los Angeles and Never Meant to Survive: Genocide and Utopias in Black Diaspora Communities)!

So what is a boçau? How did this revolutionary term become a pejorative name in Brazil? We discuss this and the importance of an African identity for Black people, British Prime Minister, David Cameron’s, response to the call for reparations from Caricom, the question of immigration and Syrian refugees, and much more!

This episode features music from Akala’s album The Thieves Banquet and the track was “Malcolm Said It”.
