Prof. Onli often shuts down interviews by asking: "Why are most Graphic Novels & Comic Book collections not as "Black" as most music collections?"

 "The Azaniac" is a character of Prof. Onli's that has been circulating for support and development since 1992 in Hollywood, Harlem, Bronzeville  & Paris to no avail. Too strong and too Black to link the traditional and the modern in an Black-Afrikan world view.
 Long before the terms "Afrofuturism" and "Afrocentric" were popularized a youthful Onli had established Rhythmism and the expression of the future-primitif in his practice. It was met with aggressive resistance in Black & White art circles who prefer works from Blacks that narrate a salute to suffering and honor the legacy of oppression.
This landmark album cover was created by Prof. Onli in 1973. It expresses unique notions of higher intellectualism in a true Afrikan context.  The visual worlds are catching up to his vision and practices but not embracing this practice with resources.  But this war is far from over!
