Must See Movie - Airing In April On HBO

The Greatest Silence: Rape in the Congo. Filmmaker Lisa F. Jackson is getting great press coverage for her upcoming documentary about rape victims in the Congo. Ms. Jackson is giving rape survivors the opportunity to tell their stories, many for the first time. Please check out her website and this article. I know that several of us are boycotting cable television for political and economic reasons, so maybe some of us that have cable still, can organize viewing parties for the documentary. I imagine this film will be something not to watch alone anyway.


As many black women in America are becoming energized to take action to help prevent sexual assaults on black women and girls and to bring justice and assistance to those that have already been victimized, we must not forget about our sisters in Africa, who suffer in silence and continue to be victimized daily. For our Dunbar Village in Florida, there are equally and more horrific rape cases in the Congo.

Professor Tracey:

Boy you are a tough cookie. Send me your how to book if you find a way to get African Americans (Men or Women) to really start giving a damn about the horrific things that go on in the continent of our fathers and mothers.

I am appalled by our lack of information and concern involving the attrocities in the Uganda, Kenya, Darfur, Somalia, Liberia, and on and on.

Thank you for bringing this issue up!

Looks interesting. I'll wait for it to come out on Netflix.

I'm really on your side in a lot of ways DJ Black Adam. I just think black women need to get themselves together for a hot minute and recharge for the group struggle. Maybe if we get our individual houses in order, we can help each other better.

i'll be recording it.
thanks for the heads up.

we can do what we can do, the rest is up to God.

and i agree prof., when we get our individual self in alignment with His will-then can we help another.

you have to know how-be willing and then do it. putting another in front of your own needs and wants.
as it happens women can help each other. it's already happening, but it's small-and people don't want to do the work....for now....
:D
it is growing...like a seed that is just starting to push through the ground.
