Q & A/COMMUNITY DIALOGUE

 

Just a few words about the Joko Collective & what we do & why we keep doin’ it!

 The Black Consciousness Movement was destined to falter, was programmed to encounter hills and valleys – not due to legitimate ups and downs of instituting a serious discipline of study, but because its very founding was grounded in political reality and activism and at its inception, its stated objectives were dangerous.

For above all else this movement chose to question the position of Black people in Amerikkka and the world.
