As Salaam Alaikum!!!!!!!!

I think we do ourselves a disservice by using the double slave title "African-America" to refer to black people living in America. That title further shows how much of a slave we still are by wearing there names. A Truly free people go by the name they choose not by the name given to them.

Right now we are black people but a name is something we would have to come up with collectively after we are Free. Do u have any Ideas.

Black people describes us to an extent but that does not identify with land or a specific nation.

How is African a slave name?

There are Africans who migrated to the US and other western countries who don't identify as black.

What term can best describe all of us as a collective?

Do I have any ideas? Yeh. I use black and African interchangeably and see no contradiction.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
