How the trans-Atlantic trade directly affected Africa...

"Politically ambitious men in matrilineal societies, such as the Yao of East Africa, used females slaves as a means of attracting male followers and as a means of developing junior patrilineages in order to gain control over their own offspring.Female slaves further encouraged the development of patriarchy and polygyny."

"The crisis African states faces was, however, eased by the gradual decline in demand for African slaves in the Americas and by the coincident expansion of demand for slave labor in Africa itself."

What this exposes is far from what is usually asserted concerning the european and arabic/islamic (external) force for the breakdown of African KINGDOMS, which focuses on "racial" aspects, but highlights the CLASS CONRADICTIONS (internal) within African KINGDOMS which had been rising since the early Empire building stage which consolidated and expanded borders, but depleted Africa of its labor force, which prevented Africa from ,aomtaining its position of power within an international Industrial revolution, and these contradictions are what made possible the colonization of Africa on a continental basis.

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:
