What are your honest views about the royal wedding? Many are excited, ecstatic and eager to see what the future holds for Meghan and Harry in this so called ‘post-racial society’. Personally, I wish we would honour our own African Queens from our homelands, such as:
Makeda, Queen of Sheba
Queen Ranavalona the First of Madagascar
Queen Nandi of the Zulu Kingdom
Those of African and Caribbean descent come from a royal lineage. Our heritage is steeped with Dynasties and Kingdoms. Both past and present, we have a rich history that we should celebrate and take pride in.
Please watch the clip below, and let me know your views…
Cambridge lecturer Priya Gopal: The British royal family operates as a corporate firm rooted in imperialism and hierarchy—and Saturday’s royal wedding was part of a PR exercise.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were married Saturday at Windsor Castle in a ceremony that many heralded for celebrating black culture and history.
Markle is biracial, divorced and a self-proclaimed feminist. The wedding featured a sermon about slavery, poverty and the enduring power of love by Bishop Michael Curry, the first African American to preside over the Episcopal Church.
