THE TEN VIRTUES OF THE ANCIENT AFRICANS

1. Control of Thought

Don't react, analyze the situation. You must bring about order if there is none.

2. Control of Action

A direct connection to right thinking. Unless one can consistently produce right action one will not be able to influence others.

3. Steadfastness (Fortitude)

Staying Power! If what you're doing is meaningful then you've got to hang in and stick with it. Over a period of time others around you will speak of your ability and you will develop a reputation for being consistent. Everybody and his or her friends, because of the lack of knowledge will knock what you're about; but as long as you stay with it, you'll grow. As long as you stay with it and benefit, then others will follow. Being steadfast is holding to your principles.

4. Identify with Higher Ideals

What makes some people strong (steadfast) while others change from one week to the next? Identity with something larger than themselves is what it is. As we examine ourselves we find that most of what we have been concerned with to the present has been self-centered and petty. Our identity with African people world-wide and throughout time is the highest identity that exists for us.

5. Evidence of a Mission

Our situation in captivity speaks of our need to liberate ourselves. Liberation is our mission. Some might say we'll never achieve it in our lifetimes, but we're not concerned with our lifetimes. We're concerned with the liberation (advancement) of African people. This means that everyone we come in contact with must be fed something, so that the seed of liberation grows within them.

6. Evidence of a Call to Spiritual Order

Once you have seen the 'Mission' and understand its importance, then you must move in that direction. Some people in this western culture get "saved". We must get "Conscious" and act to fill the needs among our people. No Brother, conscious brother or sister can be comfortable until our situation as a people is corrected.

7. Freedom from Resentment (Courage).

The move to freedom calls for change. Change disrupts, breaks, reassembles and redefines. While things are in the process of change there is no stability, no comfort. For this reason many avoid change. One who is enlightened however sees change as a must because the alternative is death for African people. Now comes the conflict. Your parents, family and friends don't see what you see. You can't follow their path and they don't see yours. They will act negative towards you as you follow your direction. Only courage will help you stay on your path and that courage comes from within. That courage will keep you from being resentful against those who don't see; and that same courage will stop their resentment from getting in you and slowing you down.

8. Confidence in the Power of the Master (Teacher).

If you have come to the level where you want to develop (change) then the best thing to do is to become the student of someone more advanced in the path (liberation) that you want to follow a master (teacher) is someone who has demonstrated their attachment to the advancement of our people.

9. Confidence in One's Own Learning Abilities.

The greatest teacher cannot teach unless the student is willing to change. The only thing that prevents change is the unwillingness to change.

10. Preparedness for Initiation

Once you've received knowledge are you prepared to act on it (change)? The receipt of knowledge is worthless unless change follows. We are continuously receiving knowledge. We must be prepared to continually change (grow).

DEFINITION OF KWANZAA

   Kwanzaa is a unique African American celebration with focus on the traditional African values of family, community responsibility, commerce, and self-improvement. Kwanzaa is neither political nor religious and despite some misconceptions, is not a substitute for Christmas. It is simply a time of reaffirming African-American people, their ancestors and culture. Kwanzaa, which means "first fruits of the harvest" in the African language Kiswahili, has gained tremendous acceptance. Since its founding in 1966 by Dr. Maulana Karenga, Kwanzaa has come to be observed by more than18 million people worldwide, as reported by the New York Times. When establishing Kwanzaa in 1966, Dr. Karenga included an additional "a" to the end of the spelling to reflect the difference between the African American celebration (kwanzaa) and the Motherland spelling (kwanzaa).

Kwanzaa is based on the Nguzo Saba (seven guiding principles), one for each day of the observance, and is celebrated from December 26th to January 1st.

  • Umoja (OO-MO-JAH) [Dec. 26]  Unity stresses the importance of togetherness for the family and the community, which is reflected in the African saying, "I am We," or "I am because We are."
  • Kujichagulia (KOO-GEE-CHA-GOO-LEE-YAH) [Dec. 27]  Self-Determination requires that we define our common interests and make decisions that are in the best interest of our family and community.
  • Ujima (OO-GEE-MAH) [Dec. 28]  Collective Work and Responsibility reminds us of our obligation to the past, present and future, and that we have a role to play in the community, society, and world.
  • Ujamaa (OO-JAH-MAH) [Dec. 29]  Cooperative economics emphasizes our collective economic strength and encourages us to meet common needs through mutual support.
  • Nia (NEE-YAH) [Dec. 30]  Purpose encourages us to look within ourselves and to set personal goals that are beneficial to the community.
  • Kuumba (KOO-OOM-BAH) [Dec. 31]  Creativity makes use of our creative energies to build and maintain a strong and vibrant community.
  • Imani (EE-MAH-NEE)  [Jan 1]  Faith focuses on honoring the best of our traditions, draws upon the best in ourselves, and helps us strive for a higher level of life for humankind, by affirming our self-worth and confidence in our ability to succeed and triumph in righteous struggle.

"AFRICA MEETS AFRICA"
A new progressive weekly radio magazine showcasing the continent of Africa
and the Diaspora on WPFW 89.3 FM Pacifica Radio in Washington, DC!

Sunday, September 19th, 2004 - "EGYPTIANS: AFRICANS OR ARABS?"
Listen Sunday at 9:00pm EST (6 pm PST) on Pacifica Radio 89.3 WPFW
or by web stream at http://www.wpfw.org
Guests: Prof. Manu Ampim and Mr. Anthony T. Browder

The issue of racial and identity in Egypt past and present has been
subjected to distorted politics and scholarship. Today Egyptian society is
regarded as white-Arab and its black-African roots and population
marginalized and in many instances denied an existence or any association
with the civilization that made the greatest contribution to mankind.
Napoleon Bonaparte's destroying the black African portraiture in the faces
of the sphinx in the 18th Century is but among the plethora of direct
actions to disassociate the glory of Kemit, known today as Egypt from the
Africans who founded this civilization of civilizations. Currently,
reclaiming Egypt's African past faces opposition from its overwhelming Arab
present and Europeans internationally in all spheres of power who find it
more profitable and believable to imagine that Ancient Egypt was not
African. Not to be discouraged by these efforts, African scholars such as
Dr. Manu Ampim continue to reaffirm Kemit's African-ness in order to foster
"human capacity, potentials, and possibilities" in Africans everywhere.

Join us this Sunday September 19, 2004 as we discuss "Egyptians: Africans or
Arabs?"

Our guest include:

Egypt: Child of Africa (1994), edited by Ivan Van Sertima. His most
extensive set of articles is the four-part essay on "The Vanishing Evidence of Classical African Civilizations." Ampim's most influential work will be his long-awaited book, Modern Fraud, which is the documentation of the Ra-Hotep and Nofret statues as among the greatest forgeries in the history of ancient African archaeology.

Prof. Ampim teaches Africana Studies in the Peralta Community College District in Oakland, CA, and he is teaching a 7-Step Primary Research Methodology Course at Advancing The Research.
