The Provisional Government of the Republic of New Afrika (PG-RNA), was/is a socio-political Nationhood Movement that proposed three objectives. First, the creation of an independent Afrikan in American-majority country situated in the southeastern United States. A similar claim is made for all the black-majority counties and cities throughout the United States. Second, the payment of several billion dollars in reparations from the US government for the damages inflicted on Afrikans and their descendants by chattel enslavement, Jim Crow segregation, and persistent modern-day forms of racism. Third, a referendum of all Afrikans in Americans in order to decide what should be done with regard to their citizenship. Regarding the latter, it was claimed that Afrikans in Americans were not given a choice in this matter after emancipation. The vision for this country was first promulgated on March 31, 1968, at a Black Government Conference held in Detroit, Michigan. Its proponents lay claim to five Southern states: (Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina); and the black-majority counties adjacent to this area in Arkansas, Texas, North Carolina, Tennessee and Florida.

 Source:http://www.nathanielturner.com/imagineablacknation.htmWhat happened to Nation Time, the dreams, visions, revision,disillusion, a time of hope unfulfilled, Driftin and Driftin like that Charles Brown tune, no moreimagination beyond a return to ancient Kemet, the land we fled four thousand years ago, thus animpossible return, for who can go home after four thousand years, except a mad Jew, and we seewhat terror he caused upon return.But it is a mental drift, the most terrible kind, most wretched because it tears at the heart as wellas the mind, thus we are drenched in sweat upon awakening from the nightmare of imaginationand must face the bright sun of reality.Shall we drift from here to eternity, for how can we avoid synchronizing our dreams with reality,finally and forever, standing on solid ground as we move into the future of a thousandtomorrows.Imagine a nation, a land of soul people who are healing their wounds from centuries of terror,who blame no one except themselves for the terror, for the ship and whip, the cross and lynchingtree, yes, the strange fruit of the last supper in paradise, before entering the door of no return.Imagine a nation, somewhere in the South where our people died, where we can honor theirbones and blood shed in the sun and night, where their spirits still dance in the swamp and riverbottoms, the plantations and huts still standing, where spirits go wild in the wind and in thestillness of summer.Imagine a nation, perhaps Up South in the wicked cities that defied the hope and dreams of generations, maybe there we shall declare ourselves free and claim sovereignty, a place calledthe Republic of Pan Africa, like Brooklyn. where we have gathered for the first time in fourthousand years, de facto capital of the Diaspora, coming from Mississippi, North and SouthCarolina Africans, Jamaica and Haitian Africans, Nigerian, Ghanaian and Senegalese, boundtogether again, this time forever on Fulton Street and streets too many to name.

Imagine A Black NationIn Memory of Imari Obadele By Marvin RBG Communiversity 
 
And yes, there is pain and rivalry, jealousy and envy, love and hate in the night, but we are therein the sun, in the snow, a nation not yet standing, not fully sensing our power, strength, the fullstrength of a mighty nation forced together again, not since fleeing the pyramids and pharaohs,the murders for succession, the flight of queens with sons and daughters who did not assume thethrone. And there was drought and famine forcing them up the Nile, the mighty Congo andNiger.Imagine, the Republic of Pan Africa, not the nationalism of fools, but the product of engineers,planners and builders who began with a thought centuries ago in the cane, cotton and rice fields,the woods of Nat Turner, Gabriel Prosser, Denmark Vesey, the railroad of Harriet Tubman, thewomanhood of Sojourner Truth, but caught, yes, as [James] Cone said, between the cross and thelynching tree.But it was the thought that refused to die, yet resurrected every season like the Nile, the dream of the homeland where we must be taken in once again. Have we not paid for this land with sweat,blood and tears? It is ours so claim the portion we desire, stand upon the ground and cry libertyor death, but have we not died a million times, even now at this hour we crucify ourselves forfailing to stand tall as full men and women, our children annihilate themselves like Buddhistmonks on fire in Vietnam, only because we have not passed on ancestor tales of liberty andfreedom, discipline and work.Imagine a nation, days of absence from our animal selves, and the donning of our divinity,wherein we hate each other no more, never again, the jealousy, the Willie Lynch syndrome,
Yacoub’s children playing with steel, some genetic defect in our divine nature.
Imagine a nation, removed from those we cannot live with in peace, thus we part from them andtheir wickedness, taking with us only the genius of our minds, for look at the fruit of our laborunder the sun, surely we can do the same for ourselves as we did for the master, transcending thepyramids with our original creations for now and tomorrow.But the question is not if or when America falls, but what is the post-American plan for NorthAmerican Africans? Will they finally acquire the sovereignty as a nation of self-determinedpeople, will they secure a land base with access to the sea and mineral rich for their centuries of free and nearly free labor under the sun? Or will they sit with dicks in their hands and heartsracing while other ethnic groups secure the division of this stolen property.Surely the Native Americans will want their fair share, the Latinos, the Asians, and poorwhites
 — 
will the so called Negro sit around waiting for the Master to return, or will he go about,finally and without hesitation, doing for self, reconstructing his fallen cities, getting control of the infrastructure, water, electricity, roads, schools, work places, airports.
