Event description

Description

Join us as we continue the work of restoring the African worldview. Our theme this year is “Truth is a heavy weapon in the struggle for African freedom.” This was expressed by our ancestor Dr. Anderson Thompson (Maa Kheru) in his essay "Developing an African Historiography" featured in ASCAC's Preliminary Challenge. Dr. Thompson reminds us that the work of restoring African history is no idle vocation, but a central feature in our Pan-African struggle for freedom.

The reclamation of African history is the only means that enables a full and comprehensive understanding of the movement of African people through time and space, as our past serves to inform us of where we have been, and ultimately, where we must go. Once realized, we begin to understand why the suppression of African history has been necessary, as a people who have been torn from history become non-entities, irrelevant. Unmoored from such knowledge, we become the lump of clay, waiting for the hands of our oppressors to mold us. Thus, we begin to fully understand the depth and necessity of the intellectual war in which Drs. Anderson Thompson, Jacob H. Carruthers, John Henrik Clarke, and our other ASCAC ancestors have been engaged.

Join us this year in Chicago as we continue this struggle.
