'Arif Khatib is the main host of this show, a discussion of the historic Afro American Association in Oakland. Arif, Donald Warden, aka Dr. Mansour, and Oakland Post Publisher Paul Cobb were founders of this organization, along with Ed Howard, Donald Hopkins, Henry Ramsey et al.
This organization was the pivotal group that gave black consciousness to students at Oakland's Merritt College, including Huey Newton, Bobby Seale, Ernie Allen, Mamadou Lumumba, aka Kenny Freeman, and Marvin X. The AAA thus influenced the founding of the Black Panther Party, Black Studies and the Black Arts Movement. Maulana Ron Karenga was the Los Angeles representative of the AAA. The Kwanza ritual came out of the AAA in Oakland.
