William Katz to Discuss Indigenous, African and Black Indian Reactions To Colonialism on UN Panel


Rose Davis


President and CEO Ava Gabrielle Wise of the United Nations NGO, the United States Sustainable Development Corporation (USSDC) has announced March 23 she will convene a United Nations panel to discuss a more authentic narrative of descendants of colonialism and enslavement. An official event of the United Nations 60th Session of the Commission on the Status of Women, the panel is on “Understanding the Role of National Identity in Global Politics,” seeks to “expand UN discourses seeking to uncover the hidden history of African, Indigenous and Black Indian descendants of colonialism and enslavement in the United States.”


The panel authorities are William Loren Katz, author of Black Indians and 40 other books, African American Studies Professor Jeffrey O.G. Ogbar, author of Black Power: Radical Politics and American Identity and other books, and journalist Monifa Bandele international human rights activist. They will address UN delegates and other invited guests at the International Social Justice Commission Building in Manhattan.


NGO President Wise requested Mr. Katz introoduce the discussion “due to your extraordinary body of work on the deeply rooted relationship between indigenous people and those of African descent from the colonization of the United States.”


As honorary chair of INDIAN VOICES' Bureau of Black Indian Affairs, Bill Katz is well known to our readers, also through his articles on Black Indian alliances since 1492 battled European invasions of the Americas. He will also speak of his 14 years experience as a public school teacher directed to follow a U.S. history curriculum based on distortions, omissions and assumptions that promoted concepts of white supremacy.


Professor Ogbar and Ms. Bandele will discuss the serious, lasting consequences of the traditional narrative on the daily lives of African and Indigenous descendants of colonialism and enslavement.
