RECLAIM WHO YOU ARE BY ALWAYS BETTING ON BLACK
As one of the Diaspora's most ardent Pan-Africanist speakers, Bakari K. Lumumba is a dynamic personality and highly-sought-after resource to inspire unity, economic empowerment, self-pride, and legacy building
for African brothers and sisters in every corner of the world.
More than "Just a kid from Dayton," Bakari K. Lumumba is a scholar, educator, lecturer, speaker, and proud Pan-Africanist who combines his life experiences and life's work to help you, "Always Bet on Black."
After getting in trouble with his third grade teacher for writing a report about the Nat Turner revolt and demanding why he and his classmates did not learn about (real) Black history, Bakari K. Lumumba started on a life-long journey to reconnect with his roots.
He discovered the philosophies of Pan-African leaders like Marcus Garvey and Patrice Lumumba, and became a part of the Pan-Africanist movement to help others find solace in belief that unifying Black people through all facets of life improves the morale, wealth, and sense of pride within the culture.
