Earlier this week, author, psychologist and “The Prince of Pan-Africanism, Dr. Umar Johnson joined The Breakfast club for one of the most culturally relevant chats in some time. Being one of the most popular morning shows in the nation, The Breakfast Club’s guests normally consist of urban music’s best and black Hollywood brightest, which makes this interview all the more interesting considering the massive reach and audience boasted by New York’s Power 105.1.
Some of the topics covered during this discussion include police brutality, social conditioning, structural inequality and Dr. Johnson’s critique of President Barak Obama.
To say that some of Dr. Johnson’s views are controversial wouldn’t be a stretch for some, but many would agree that conversations such as this are necessary and should be welcomed at every juncture. Further more, his ideas for actual and tangible solutions for the ills that plague black and brown people are more than attainable, provided we’re all willing to do the work.
