In 1993, Da Ghetto Tymz magazineDGT for short, was created by M'Bwebe Aja Ishangi; an Afrikan-centered publication that shares the Historical, Health, and Spiritual experience of Afrikan people. DGT also serves as an outlet to address the ever-increasing muted voice of a generationz cultural and spiritual position unknowingly at the onset of the virtual revolution, the internet.

Ishangi, a representative of the 1970s baby, comes from a generation that embodies the identity of a hybrid, if you will; integrated into the post Civil Rights era, yet not far removed from the Black Power movement. As he humbly ascendz to the rank of Elder, he acknowledges Black America's voice in media still findz itself at the bottom due mainly to the resignation of our own media—thanks large in part to Integration.

M'Bwebe recognized this need, and soon the accessibility the world wide web could offer. The internet provided a new opportunity to emgage, one providing direct entry to mass appeal without having to go through the traditional filter of "elite acceptance". From this DaGhettoTymz.com was additionally created. Now, two decades running as of April 10, 2013 and over 800 articles under his belt, DaGhettoTymz.com has compiled more than enough data to begin the next phase: Active Activizm. more ›

Whether for a season or seasonz, throughout the yearz many have read and shared DGTs articles, bought our magazines, books, and other products, or attended M'Bwebe's speaking engagements—or all of the above; in some way, you've supported DGT, of which we are eternally indebted. This is what makes 20 yearz so special, you've co-piloted this endeavor with us!

We are inviting you to celebrate with us, our 20th Year, as we challenge the future by being a Supporter for our two events: a Communal Forum Series, beginning this September which will be held at Medgar Evers College and an Urban Black-Tie Social Affair that will follow the first forum.

The Forum will be a 5-part series entitled, ‘Who’s NXT (Nubian Generation of Thinkers) Forum’ with ‘Reviewing the Past. Challenging the Future’ as its theme at Medgar Evers College, Brooklyn, New York. We will use Drs. Neely Fuller, Jr. and Francess Cress-Welsing’s modified ‘10 Areas of People Activity’ thesis to address issues and resolutions on where Afrikan peole will be in the immediate future of these areas — especially for young adults and youth.

Made up of a collaborative gathering of guest’s speaking on each of the 10 APA, we will establish a communal network that will serve as a Think-Tank/Resource Group as well as a precursor to a Rights of Passage/Apprenticeship for young adults and youth.

With “Each one, teach MANY” as the energetic concept we aim to project, the ultimate goal of this forum is to both prepare and create opportunities such as this that will address a plethora of socioeconomic challenges we face as a people globally. more ›
