Civil Rights Movement Introduction Rapid expansion of civil liberties and rights in America occurred during the last half of the 20th century. So much so that one could say the birth of a new nation came as a result of the many protests held during that time and the legislation passed.
Join the conversation on Twitter and Facebook. Tribute to Ethiopia Scholar Don Levine: Levine, who passed away on Saturday, April 4th at the age of 83, is being remembered by his friends in Ethiopia and the Diaspora as a beloved Ethiopianist, educator, sociological theorist, author, collaborator, advocate, mentor, sensei and friend.
In addition to his well-known credentials as a respected scholar of Ethiopian studies, Levine was also an Aikido sensei and the co-founder of the first Aikido dojo in Awasa, Ethiopia. Feel free to send us your own reflections at staff tadias.
I have known him for more than 12 years and he has taught me, trained me, supported me like a father would a son. He was the architect of our project. He loved our country and the people, and he was talking about Ethiopia days before he passed away.
We will cherish his work and continue working on what we started in our country. Rest in peace, Ethiopiawiwu ye Selam Arbegna.
Dag Andargachew and Don Levine. We kept in touch since then and got to hang out again in when he came back to California to visit an Ethiopian that was imprisoned.
Afterwards we went to Yoga Mandala in Berkeley for their 1st anniversary yoga session which was my first ever yoga class!! After that day I was a regular student at that studio till I left the Bay Area and have been hooked on yoga ever since! Fast forward a few years and I was living in Addis for a couple of years and had the honor to help Don with administrative staff — organizing meetings, meet and greet events etc.
I also had the privilege to organize a meeting for him with Gash Mesfin Prof. Mesfinwho had also been recently released from prison.

It is difficult to determine when colonialism begins and ends, and therefore to agree that "postcolonial" designates an era "after" colonialism has ended.|

It was an awesome opportunity for me to sit amongst these two giants and listen-in to their conversation, debate and old stories. Interestingly I found out that my Dad was an undergrad student at AAU when Don first came to Ethiopia and was one of the people that taught him Amharic.
Don is a true sensei in the whole sense of the word!! Courtesy photo I am blessed to have known Dr. The God that created heaven and earth is pleased in this Easter day, to receive his servant and our friend into his kingdom.
May his writing and teaching touch many lives forever and ever. He has willingly accepted and loved being Ethiopian. He dedicated 55 years of his life studying, writing, teaching, advocating and praying for Ethiopia and Ethiopians.
He encouraged all of us to dig deeper into the spirit of Menze and Shoa. He also showed us to live our lives with abundance. He motivated us to develop our skill of negotiation that our ancestors had once mastered.
He showed us how to express what we want with class and dignity using what our ancestors called Wax and Gold. He wanted to show Ethiopians not to be ashamed of our history and heritage.
For that alone I am eternally grateful.If you are interested in learning more about the Black History Gallery Project, here is a presentation Dr. Joel Freeman made to a group interested in establishing a Black History gallery in their community.
At one time, Malcolm X actually wanted "to join forces with King and the progressive elements of the Civil Rights Movement," (pg. , Malcolm X: The man and his times). To many, King and Malcolm X were heroes of the Civil Rights Movement.
Postcolonial literature is the literature by people from formerly colonized countries. It exists on all continents except Antarctica. Postcolonial literature often addresses the problems and consequences of the decolonization of a country, especially questions relating to the political and cultural independence of formerly subjugated people, and themes such as racialism and colonialism.
The civil rights leaders Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and Malcolm X were two sides of the same coin. Both of them fought for equality and justice for African Americans. Both of them saw a need for immediate action in order to secure those rights.
However, they differed greatly in their strategy and tactics.
America and the Civil Rights Movement riveting scenes from the story- which pointedly mirror the real-life racism experienced by African-Americans of the time and their determination to stand up for their dignity and rights. America’s larger social awakening to the civil rights struggle is traced throughout the presentation.
