    The only one who stood of for Grenada's right for self-determination was Cuba. Guess why american media hate Castro?

    To the Great Griot, i am interested in donating to your educational series, but i am having issues in understanding what my donation will do. I have tried to see what previous works you have done, but when i go to your page i am not seeing anything. Do you have a site seperate from the donation site?

  • Nessman99 May 16, 2017 - 2:05 am

    wow..i remember all the news about Grenada as a kid but didnt i was so lost as an African American. I was fooled and tricked to know these were our brothers.They made us to believe everything outside of this country was bad and negative. You can throw Cuba in there too. I been blind all these years. I didnt even know where Grenada was.

  • Nakupenda wewe May 16, 2017 - 2:05 am

    Patrice Lumumba did the same

  • Barrington Mack May 16, 2017 - 2:05 am

    What happened to him is similar to what happened to Thomas Sankara. Very sad

  • Paul Cort May 16, 2017 - 2:05 am

    I would be grateful if the presenter would examine the case of Guyana under Linden Forbes Sampson Burnham. I think she would also find our story fascinating when we think of the demons Burnham had to fight.

  • J Jay May 16, 2017 - 2:05 am

    I love this video. I never took the time to really study what really happen in Grenada, also we can see that we are our worst enemy, then there standing as the always manipulative cave ape to pick up the pieces and continue to further it's white terror domination agenda. Great work as always.

  • d'Eric Howse May 16, 2017 - 2:05 am

    Grenada had nothing to do with white supremacy but stoping the communism and Soviet/Castro influence. Otherwise great video

  • rahmi niks May 16, 2017 - 2:05 am

    First of all, I Thank You sister for this informational vid along with the others that you've done and do…not to omit the Beautiful queen that you are. For those watching who are beginning to awaken to the realities of this one false reality, the sister makes key points at 10:30 and 12:48 where she states that 1) Inner strife in the New Jewel Movement developed…spearheaded…by Bernard Cord (sp) and General Hutson Austin (sp) then 2)This is the opportunity that the Reagan administration had been waiting and preparing for…and took advantage of the inner strife taking place.
    I could go in several directions from just those two points but what I want those now awakening to overstand is how togetherness and togetherness of purpose is how we build up[on] people-dreams-ideas-communities-nations-Being Free AND how there are always – it seems – some one or two or three or more who infiltrate that togetherness whether it's due to jealousy/weak-mindedness or selling out for money or prestige or being an agent planted to move agendas.
    My point: First, respect due to Brother Maurice Bishop for his vision and his sacrifice; Grenada is but one example of many movements that have succeed for a time only to be short-lived for the same reasons. Reasons that, at the core, are birthed, bred and maintained by the same wicked 'source' that has specific spawns spread throughout. As Aboriginal Black people of this country-turned-corporation the "spawn" still affecting us was exposed by another visionary who also met an un-natural demise, Brother Steve Cokely (do your due diligence on him, too). And they walk and grin amongst us hidden in plain sight. As another [s]election year draws near to its end for an old beginning, it is one that attempts to usher in something stale but New in terms of the order of this world which brings us full-circle back to the basics that brought our ancestors thru– Togetherness. The clock-time is Now because there is such a thing as too late.

  • Thecomandante _tut May 16, 2017 - 2:05 am

    This is my favorite channel. It's so hard to find decent knowledge on YouTube. Most "conscious" channels just teach pseudo science and debate beliefs, but this one TEACHES. I learn so much here that in all my studies I never came across. Thank you! Keep it up.

    Extremely constructive. Black self respect as usual.

  • Stephanie Jo May 16, 2017 - 2:05 am

    great video! keep up the fantastic work.

  • RatedRJerichoFan May 16, 2017 - 2:05 am

    I wish more blacks educated themselves on their own history, but they never listen. I hope one day we'll have a new young black leader for the advancement of the new generation.

  • MrEnglewood78 May 16, 2017 - 2:05 am

    I really love your videos, we need some inspiration today as black people around the world. With white supremacist supporting Trump like Richard spencer, it's time for us to unite as a people no matter where we live. Drop all this hebrew, Christian, tribal, non sense and unite as a people it's vital for our survival.
