Manage episode 298682027 series 2946613
The Covid-19 Delta Variant has caused a new surge in the United States and other parts of the world. The Delta Variant of Covid-19 was first noticed in India in December 2020. It subsequently spread rapidly through India as well as places like South Africa, the United Kingdom and Canada. The first United States cases of the Delta Variant were found in March 2021.
There has been widespread political resistance to Covid-19 vaccines. Some opportunists in the colonial media have intentionally spread misinformation about vaccines even while being vaccinated themselves.
Many Africans have remained rightfully skeptical because of the history of colonial medicine’s experimentation on African people.
About 56 percent of the US population above the age of 12 have been vaccinated but reports suggest that many of the unvaccinated have no plans on getting vaccinated.
Project Black Ankh and the All African People’s Development and Empowerment Project has really risen to the occasion and provided the leadership the African Nation has needed over the last 16 months. They have been a steady source of honest information in defense of the African working class.
In this episode, Dr. Aisha Fields discusses the updated Project Black Ankh Covid-19 Protocols and vaccine recommendations. She places the vaccine recommendations into political context, discusses the deliberate misinformation that has been circulated to disarm African people, the role Project Black Ankh's fight against the Ebola Virus played in shaping their Covid-19 Campaign, Covid-19 and neocolonial misleadership in Africa, and the successes and future of Project Black Ankh.
Dr. Aisha Fields is a physicist who became the International Director of the All African People’s Development & Empowerment Project, a non-profit organization founded in 2007.
As the group’s Director, Dr. Aisha is responsible for coordinating African community-led health care, agricultural and educational programs throughout the U.S., on the continent of Africa, and in African communities world-wide.
They’ve built clean water systems, vocational and nursery schools, community farms, maternity centers and a variety of youth and adult educational programs.
They also established the Project Black Ankh to provide African community-based disaster relief, responding to hurricanes in Texas, Ebola in Sierra Leone and now, COVID-19 worldwide.
