www.bittermedicineblogs.com – A recent New York Times article, “Working to Close the Breast Feeding Gap” totally surprised us! In it, the article says that Black women are not encouraged to nurse as much as white women, due to the history of their own mothers not breast feeding them.
Shockingly, Black newborns are nine times more likely than white babies to get formula in hospitals. Initially, white women led the charge to raise their children on baby formula, and Black women followed suit. However, at some point white women ditched baby formula, realizing “breast is best”, but Black women did not follow. It should be noted: White women leading the charge towards feeding babies with baby formula is rooted in Slavery.
Many Black women today shun breast feeding because it reminds them of days gone by, during slavery, when Black women were forced to not only work the fields, but also be wet nurses to white families.
We examine the reasons why there isn’t more lactation assistance in our community; Black women’s traumatic history with being wet nurses to their oppressor’s children; the pros and cons of breast feeding from both a scientific and metaphysical stance; and we relate all of this to why white supremacy discourages breast feeding in the Black community.
These and other topics are discussed. Listen to find out more!

Abibitumi honors Baba Runoko Rashidi
Some of you may not know this, but Baba Runoko Rashidi was a pioneer in online teaching long before it became a “thing”. Baba Runoko had a tremendous influence on the course and direction of Abibitumi in its formative years.
He taught courses such as "Around the World with Runoko Rashidi" (2008), "The Global African Presence" (2010, 2011), "A Tribute to Great Black Women in History" (2011), "Who is the Original Man?" (2012), "The Ancient African Diaspora/The Modern African Diaspora Lectures" (2012) and many more!
Because of the very special relationship he had with us at Abibitumi during our formative years, we think that it is only right to honor this legend, this giant in the best way possible.
It is in this spirit that we will honor the life's work and dedication of Baba Runoko Rashidi, who dedicated his very life to the work of connecting the Afrikan=Black family.
Who was Baba Runoko Rashidi?
Baba Runoko Rashidi described himself as a scholar, historian, author and a lecturer. Born in 1954, the historian was about 67 years old when he passed away.
He held frequent seminars about African History, Pan-Africanism, and focused his work specifically on the global African presence, which details the movement of Africans outside Africa before and after enslavement.
Baba Runoko Rashidi was also a highly successful author, having published collections of essays, as well as books about Black culture and Black history. He was a prolific academic writer, publishing 22 books across his career.
These include The Black Image In Antiquity, Black Star: The African Presence In Early Europe, as well as Uncovering The African Past.
Baba Runoko Rashidi had travelled across the world, visiting 124 countries, as well as lecturing and teaching in 67 of them. In 2005 he received an Honorary Doctorate from the Amen-Ra Theological Seminary in LA.
Recently he had been researching African artefacts, and African cultural presence in museums around the world. He had also been part of the curatorial and academic board of the Pan-African Heritage Museum since 2020.

In 2000, I was contracted by Wesley Snipes and St Clair Bourne to do 3D animation for a documentary on Yosef Ben-Jochannan aka Dr. Ben. Wesley was doing a series of Black History documentaries, the first being A Great and Mighty Walk: John Henrik Clarke. The doc on Dr Ben was never finished when the Blade Series took off. There was some controversy about the film I was never sure about. History fell to commerce. Wesley, treated folks right and just got caught up in a great success. Maybe it will be finished one day. <br />
The 3D animation was based on a survey of the ruins of Karnak that resides at the Oriental Institute in Chicago. This is what it would have looked like based on the 8 weeks of research I did. Then 6 weeks of production with Max McMullen in London working remotely between Chicago and there most of the time. <br />
I returned to Chicago permanently and Max went on to be animation supervisor for Dave McKean's Mirrormask.

Obenga is a proponent of Pan-Africanism and has advocated a number of theories such as a "Negro-Egyptian" language family (négro-égyptien) including all languages of Africa, an approach which he shares with Cheikh Anta Diop
According to his sfsu.edu homepage, Obenga holds a PhD in Letters, Arts and Humanities from Montpellier University, France. He contributed as part of the United Nations Educational and Scientific Cultural Organization (UNESCO) program, to the writing of the General History of Africa and the Scientific and Cultural History of Humanity. He was, until the end of 1991, Director General of the Centre International des Civilisations Bantu (CICIBA) in Libreville, Gabon. He is the Director and Chief Editor of the journal Ankh. From January 28 to February 3, 1974 at Cairo, Egypt, Obenga accompanied Cheikh Anta Diop as Africa's representatives to the UNESCO symposium on "The Peopling of Ancient Egypt and the Deciphering of the Meroitic Script.

Is the sun yellow? Like in those pictures you drew as a kid? The answer is no. On this StarTalk explainer, Neil deGrasse Tyson and comic co-host Chuck Nice investigate the true color of the Sun.
Neil explains why the Sun’s true color is white. You’ll learn how the atmosphere takes the Sun’s white light and turns it into something else. You’ll also learn why the blue sky is stolen sunlight.
Lastly, Neil gives us a photography lesson and tells us how photographers deal with different light. We investigate indoor vs. outdoor light. All that, plus, Neil explains why snow being white is evidence of the Sun’s white light.
