Africans Rebranded Millennium Project


African Rebranding Millennium Project( ARMP) acknowledges, and honors the millions of sacrifices and contributions of Africans on the African continent, of African descendants in the diaspora, and of African ancestors to whom modern society  owes an unfathomable debt of gratitude for uncompensated service. 

In the process of rebranding ourselves, we assume our destined world leadership, restore ourselves to ourselves, demonstrate to the world the power of African wisdom, and enact our responsibility towards ourselves, each other, our communities.

Denying the demands of a world ruled by the notion of " survival of the fittest," building on the work of the Black consciousness in America that precedes us (MAAT, Nguzo Saba),  ARMP sets a new protectory that generations to come will daily implement the ancient African principles:  "Because We Are, I am" .

Dr. Diaw Speaks

Contributing Author, Black Panther: Paradigm Shift or Not

Excerpts from Who are Black People---really" written by Dr. Diaw.


"The word “slave” giving a connotation of inferiority, poses as preferred metaphor to describe Africans who were innocently and violently kidnapped from their homeland for four centuries, and "descendants of slaves" denigrates future generations of Black children." 


"Like the words tables and chairs, slaves a common noun; evokes shame, anger, or denial. In conversations, lectures, or social science texts, the word is dismissive of human identity, culture, language, geographical roots, and diversity. What or who will change this?"  

"In (film) Black Panther, cinematography redeems rather than copies life, as five tribes living on Wakanda unite through their culture, history, and values, portraying African sensibility and social realism, strategically welding indominable individual and collective power."

"I think Black Panther spoke to me because he was noble, and he was the antithesis of the stereotypes presented and portrayed about Africans, African history, and the great kingdoms of Africa. Indeed, it would be no surprise, if research for the film included a study of African kingdoms such as: Ghana, Mali, Songha."

i (5,000 B.C to 1901 A. D.). 


"Delicately infused into the film’s setting and plot are remnants of African belief systems, values, traditions, philosophy, political institutions, economic structures, social organizations, arts, music, dance, and oral/written history, all of which has been perpetuated for centuries (Diop, 1974; Rodney, 1972; Rose, 1999; Williams, 1987)".

 
 
 
 
 
What is AFRICANS REBRANDED MILENNIUM PROJECT (ARMP)?

A  grassroots self-empowerment movement 
Truth seeking folks sharing the truth ….
about the origins of greatness rooted in African history 
about the generational accomplishments/achievements of  descendants of Africans here in the United States of America
about Black influence and contributions to the humanity

What inspired this project?

In 2019,  Patricia Williams Diaw (founder/project manager, Two Smiles for a Child LLC) witnessed the institutional  struggle about how to celebrate 400 years since the first Africans arrived in Jamestown, Virginia in 1619.  There was great complexity. Do we celebrate the captivity and enslavement of millions of men, ---certainly not. Do we celebrate 400 years of  African resiliency ,---by all means worthy of acknowledgement. However, the truth be known, 400 years of  African contributions to the construction and development of this country and the global impact of so called "slaves" on modern society is worthy of finally valuing  the humanity of million Africans kidnapped and scatter throughout the earth.

No more historical lies and omissions about Africa or African Americans.  Today begins the rebranding process obliterating the programed human devaluation and personal denigration associated with the dark skinned people. 

Check it out! 
In countless cases, folks come to America from all over the world with a pre-programed deficit of respect for Black people based on subtle and blatant word of mouth and media  induced  notions of black inferiority.

Great African Civilizations
Dr. Henry Louis Gates, Jr.

Now, for a moment, return to a consideration of commonly accepted beliefs of inferiority with regards to the African continent: “Africa has no culture of its own, was without science and technology, was without education, hence could not read or write, was without shelter, hence put up in tress, living by hunting and employing primitive methods to trap his kill."  NOT SO! Learn about the Great Ancient Civilizations of Africa.

Doorway of No Return,  House of Slaves
Senegal West Africa



Held captive in a strange land for centuries, African American men, women, and children are the descendants of those who survived this African holocaust. Africans Rebranded Millennium Project acknowledges their suffering and presents the truth about who they and we are as a nation of dark skinned people. Rise up mighty warriors!
