On February 25, 2017, during Black History Month, I had the honor of appearing at The Mocombeian Foundation's first annual Pan-Africanism Conference Entitled: Pan-Africanism and Religiosity in the age of Neoliberalism and White Reactionism. The host was Dr. Paul Camby Mocombe, Assistant Professor of Sociology and Philosophy at West Virginia State University. The panelist who spoke immediately before me is Dr. Celucien Joseph, Assistant Professor of English at Indian River State College. Dr. Joseph spoke on the need for intellectual reparations, while my presentation was entitled, " What is the Utility of Pan-Africanism in the Age of White Nationalism." My presentation was especially well received and commences at the 39:30 minute mark of the first video and continues from the start of the second video until the 16:22 mark.
In light of this subject and the current times I would share a document that the Jimmy Carter administration and Zbigniew Brzezinski attempted to deny in being its author, but yet was admitted into credible evidence in a U.S. Supreme Court case 20 years after Carter and Brzezinski tried to deny its authenticity in U.S. Supreme Court Case Number 00-9587. The document deals with the perceived threat of Pan-Africanism in the United States to U.S. Security prerogatives.

NATIONAL SECURITY COUNCIL MEMORANDUM-46
MARCH 17, 1978
Presidential Review Memorandum NSCM/46
TO: The Secretary of State
The Secretary of Defense
The Director of Central Intelligence
SUBJECT: Black Africa and the U.S. Black Movement
The President has directed that a comprehensive review be made of current developments in Black Africa from the point of view of their possible impacts on the black movement in the United States. The review should consider:
1. Long-term tendencies of social and political developments and the degree to which they are consistent with or contradict the U.S. interests.
2. Proposals for durable contacts between radical African leaders and leftist leaders of the U.S. black community.
3. Appropriate steps to be taken inside and outside the country in order to inhibit any pressure by radical African leaders and organizations on the U.S. black community for the latter to exert influence on the policy of the Administration toward Africa.
