Cosmic Afrika - Then and Now - The Astronomy Course

Cosmic Afrika I & II -  
Astronomy Then and Now!
These are the featured science courses this semester. Mama Erica and Baba Balogun will teach the middle and high school sections of this course- respectively. 


Afrikans invented clock time. Afrikan time is cosmic people's time (CPT). This course starts where time began - with us. The way we counted time was based on the cosmos - the movement of the "heavenly" bodies. Major calendar today is based on our star charts. Did you know that in ancient KMT (Egypt), we had identified over 43 constellations. Our mantra was "As above, so below." 


 Students will observe and photograph the night sky in search of constellations themselves. They will have to walk a mile in our ancestor's astronomical sandals including understanding 

amplitude azimuth declination celestial equator ecliptic and much more. 

Of course we won't stay in KMT, we'll follow the Dogon to Sirus, and visit Namortunga II and the Turkana people of…

New Course Descriptions

We're excited about some new classes for 2015-2016 with compliment our standard math, science, language arts and history curriculum.

Form Follows Function: Finding Imhotep's Father - The Course

Where did they hide his body?


They have even been able to hide is name. To steal the father is to cripple the son, and us.  We must find him. There are those who are seeking to turn the son against his father's teachings. The results will be catastrophic.

"Forms follows function" is not just an architectural maxim, Since before the time of Imhotep's father it has guided human creation. It can only be determined in community, with community. To turn it on it's head  - function following form  - is hedonistic. Imhotep together with his father can turn the world right-side up again.

Join this unique architecture course in search of the mind and the skills of the architects who will help Imhotep and his father turn the world right-side up again.

 The course title comes from Nana Baffour (Asa G. Hilliard III) who taught us years ago that “form follows function, and that beauty follows form.”Architects Sister Ese (Justein Futurell) and Baba Yohance (Bediako Darrell Mi…

Call in Black!

I love this "Call in Black" video.Yes, today would be a great day to "call in Black." If you can't, or even after you do, then make the Black Call. Call to our fighting, healing, building ancestors, songs, stories, so they can go with you. This is not the time to surrender or shrink.

This brutality is not new. It's allowing us to see what's been happening for decades - hidden by projections of progress and our delusions to match. We are only shedding the illusions and delusion that have kept us from touching the ordinary reality of our existence in America, and that have kept us from touching the old Afrikan, and Afrikan power within.

Feel deeply - anger, sadness, even fear. Let our tears water continue to wash away the illusions and delusions - though horrors we'll see. Let our tears water the ancient seeds of resistance and hope in us. Follow the anger and fear to their natural conclusions - power. Then you'll know what to do and when.

Before you...

Sister Grace, I'm so glad you posted this. Ras asked me last week to further explain why I objected to his blaming "emotionalism" for creating whatever problem he was referring to. This post, might just help me. So, here goes.
As I read the "Before you react, think" line from the meme, I realized something that I've been missing for so long. It's that most people assume that “react” and “reaction” is all or mostly emotional. What just came together for me is that when our thinking has been conditioned or programmed, that thinking guides our reaction- even over  emotional guidance to the contrary.
For example ringing Pavlov's bell, automatically gets the dog thinking food, seeing food and salivating. Similarly, whenever White folks shoot us in our churches, our reaction is guided by the thinking which they have programmed and seared into us. And that is to forgive them when they kill or hurt us. We're conditioned …
