In the conclusion of our digitally re-mastered presentation entitled Dr. Amos Wilson on Feel Good History, from our Ideopraxis Series, Dr. Wilson discusses the following:
- Why it is not possible to be African-centered without the goal of Pan-African nation building
- Education not being about getting a job for a life of conspicuous consumption
- Constant vigilance, while building Pan-African organization, against those whose “African-centeredness” is based on rejection by other people, and much more!
Ideopraxis, a term coined by renowned African scholar & author Ayi Kwei Armah, means “the translation of ideas systematically embraced into structured behavior and lifestyle. Ideopraxis is the yardstick that separates revolutionary performers from phonies” (Remembering The Dismembered Continent, pg 75-76). With this term in mind, we created our Ideopraxis Series.
Conscientization 101’s Ideopraxis Series is an extension of the tracks we produced for our FREE GIFT musical commentaries featuring Dr. Marimba Ani, Dr. Amos Wilson, and Dr. John Henrik Clarke. These podcast episodes include lectures we have curated and digitally re-mastered from each of these African scholars in order to preserve these critical insights and analysis.
