I am posting this update of FROLINAN: Historical Conception and Overview as to provide a more detailed overstanding of the film I made entitled Martin & Malcolm & America | A Dream or A Nightmare RBG Street Scholar vimeo.com …The dialectical (unity and struggle of opposites) relationship between the Elijah Muhammad separatist and Martin L. King, Jr. integrationist movement, preserved in historical continuity the ideals of both the Marcus Garvey separatist and W.E.B.

FROLINAN HISTORICAL CONCEPTION AND OVERVIEW
We accept all aspects of our history from the beginning of civilization on the Afrikan continent,to the present stages of technological development of Afrikan nation-states, and the continuedstruggle of Afrikan people throughout the world against tyranny and imperialist oppression.With this conception of history, we view the material basis in which history evolved to itspresent and ongoing developing modes of history; as Afrikan people relate and interrelate withone another, other people of color in the Third World, and the European races. Thisunderstanding and materialist outlook of history, notes that dialectically, our present conditionand struggle is based on our past experiences in a continuing development of an Afrikan history.The New Afrikan experience in America is not separate from the Afrikan experience on thecontinent, rather, they are linked in a chain of events which imposes socioeconomic, political andhistorical realities encompassing the criteria by which New Afrikan struggle for independencemust be developed.
We call ourselves New Afrikan
because of the degree of force breeding and miscegenation weas a people have suffered, as well the cultural imperialism and the psychological plunder and rape of our affinity to Afrika - stripping away our Afrikan language, art and world, outlook, and national oppression, which in our efforts to combat have created a national heritage rich inresistance based on two ideals of integration and/or separation. These experiences which left usstripped of our Afrikanist perspective despite miscegenation and cultural imperialism,encompassing those experiences into an Afrikan national heritage in Diaspora, creating the New Afrikan Independence Movement.
This conception of history in a dialectical materialist perspective provides the means toformulate a program and strategy to conquer racist oppression and national subjugation,utilizing, the truth of our entire history as a guide to enlighten our practice.
For instance, interms of a (foreign) policy of Afrikan intercommunalism with our people on the Afrikancontinent, it is essential to know what our relationship had been in history -providing asubstantial foundation to develop principled relations today... For New Afrikans, it is importantto know that slavery did not begin as an American phenomenon, but rather, American chattelslavery of Afrikans is a direct outgrowth of Afrikans enslaving Afrikans on the Afrikancontinent. Many of our ancestors had been enslaved by Afrikans due to internecine struggles,border wars of territorial imperative- amongst tribes and wars of aggression between Afrikannation-states. The prisoner of wars, and/or because of denture, were placed in bondage, and oftensold or traded. When the Europeans (Portuguese, Dutch, Spanish, British, etc.) made contact

with Northern and Western coastal areas of Afrika, they not only raided villages and kidnappedAfrikans, but more often and productively (numerically) brought already enslaved Afrikans fromAfrikan chieftains and traders. Hence, for the most part, our existence in the Western hemisphereis as much a consequence of Afrikan history as it is of European history.Thus, as we conceive ourselves in history, we must place responsibility of our condition incontext to the actual historical development leading to our present situation. In this regards, wedon't expect assistance from our Afrikan brothers nations simply because we are of one people --only separated by distance -- but because history demand recompense for a people (NewAfrikans) whose existence and suffering is based on our unfortunate relation in the history of slavery mutual to us all, and the commonality of our fight against mutual enemy -- imperialism.This same conception and relation to history is binding on any relationship established with otherpast enslaver, such as the Dutch, Portuguese, British, Spanish, etc.As we struggle against continued U.S. colonization, New Afrikans must have a determined senseof history in regard to the New Afrikan Nation relationship to the world. Without this commonnational consciousness and perception of our existence, based on history, our practice willcontinue to be confused and chaotic, without historical continuity which serves to give practicalguidance on the road to independence. As an oppressed nation, we have a rich history of resistance to bondage; revolts on slave ships during the middle passage; revolts and rebellions forhundreds of years on slave plantations; fighting for freedom in the War of Independence, War of 1812, and Civil War; and fighting in the U.S. Army in the name of U.S. democracy (hypocrisy)can also be considered part of the national determination to be free.
We preserve four epochs in our history as indicative of our struggle to be free of U.S.national subjugation and colonial domination.
After the signing of the EmancipationProclamation in 1863 and the 13th Amendment in 1865, and the Civil War having endedbarbaric chattel slavery; the 14th Amendment stripped Afrikans in America of their land(provided by Field Order No. 115) imposed American citizenship on these Afrikan nationals, thiscountry entered a period defined as reconstruction and the industrial revolution. This was aperiod when the slavocracy gave birth to mercantile capitalism; the gross surplus of suchcommodities as cotton, tobacco, sugar, etc., produced from slave labor in the South, providedeconomic-textile-industrial growth and development in Northern States. Reconstruction foundmillions of New Afrikans either re-enslaved by the vestiges of the Black Code-Law tosharecropping, unemployment, and landless or migrating North in search of educational andemployment opportunities. But the Hayes Tilden agreement restored racist national oppressionand colonial domination prevailed with terrorist Ku Klux Klan raids, race riots (white againstBlacks), mob violence, lynching of New Afrikans in the North and South.
