Black stories matter – Why We Must Write, Teach and Pass On the Tales of the Lions.

About Ajala
Ajala Omodele is a Keeper of the Memory of the Ancestors. He is dedicated to the preservation and protection of the Story of Afrikan People in Bermuda and, through his writing, seeks to place the struggles for liberation that took shape in the Devil’s Isles within the larger, global context of Afrikan resistance to European psychopathy, avarice and backwardness.

He is the author of “Dame Lois: The People’s Advocate”, “They Called Him ‘Roose’: Pauulu Kamarakafego and the Making of a Bermudian Revolutionary” and “Look For Me in the Whirlwind: A Story of Marcus Garvey”. He is currently applying the finishing touches to “A Tale of Two Women: Sally Bassett, Mary Prince and the True Story of Slavery in Bermuda”.

Synopsis
Black stories matter… will address the ways in which the revisionist propaganda in the work of white authors and historians writing on slavery in Bermuda attempt to absolve white enslavers of culpability in the waking nightmare that was chattel slavery here in Bermuda, the ‘why’ behind the need to peddle this lie and the weaponization of this myth to create the idea that Black Bermuda, then and now, has precious little about which to complain.

African Kitchen
ThinkFest is partnering with the African Kitchen for this event. Arrive early for a sampling of West African cuisine.
