    Julianne Malveaux, NNPA Columnist|Mar 7, 2019

    According to some historians, Afrodescendents first entered these united states in 1619 off the coast of Virginia. If we believe that narrative, Afrodescendents have been in this country for 400 years. If the people who were kidnapped and brought here had to tell the story, would they tell the same one? Would they say that we came before Columbus? That some of us might have been here even longer? There were captured Africans that came from the mother continent in 1619, but also, thanks to the...

  • The Devil is Full of Many Tricks So Don't Be Fooled

    James Washington, NNPA - Dallas Weekly|Mar 7, 2019

    You know, I’ve got to give it to the devil. He truly is as slick as they come. It is my understanding that he has some power in this physical world and what amounts to zilch in the eternal kingdom of heaven. Hence, he has an advantage when it comes to orchestrating the events of this world, in order to accomplish two, very important things to him—things that we should all be aware of. One, I believe, is to get us to believe he doesn’t exist. Two, is to show us a perspective on this world that...
