AFRIKA HOUSE is a non-profit, non-partisan and non-sectarian in-House Afrikan Heritage Organ Forum and Organical Human Development Advocacy and Locus of Community Meeting, Planning, Communication, and Sharing. It exists for the purpose of assessing, researching, inspiring, creating, and exemplifying by integrated and Simultaneous Corporeal and Spiritual Wisdom, the highest and the best uplifting ideals, tradition ethic, talents, and service potentials that are inherent and cultural to the nature, spirit, background, and future of peoples of Afrikan heritage of Amerikan nationality, so as to secure and prosper their presence and contributions, in and as Amerikans, as conscious and voluntary asset of righteous progress succinct human fulfillment and love for themselves; for their neighbors, community and country, and for the Creator-Creatress and the whole of creation in the Light of the unfolding Golden Age. A life that makes possible the form of Amerikan society and world community that will accept, utilize, and gratefully articulate the best and the noblest in the near or distant heritage of Afrikan peoples.
a. To inspire Afrikan-Amerika to recognize the special pattern and purpose of their natural endowments and to strive, on the basis of that recognition, for fresh potent and pertinent wisdom, order and organic initiative for the development and generation of the godhood and goddess hood qualities that are present and constitutive of their native intelligence and high culture of which evolutionary misadventures and misfortunes has, long since rendered distorted and woeful. We are to appreciate the Law that folks who refuse to live by the criterion and formula of their own God-given intelligence idiosyncrasies and talents will have to live by the sweat of their dishonored and fallen brow. Afrikanity is an impossibility without spirituality and communality. In short, we are to realize that without, at the same time practicing grass-root spirituality, corporeal knowledge, communality and Creator-Creatress consciousness, in their best-integrated fashion, it is virtually impossible to express a progressive and genuine Afrikan identity and heritage. Afrika is, today recalled to Conscious Evolutionary Development and Conscious Cosmic Citizenship.
b. By stimulating their vision, obtaining and sharing knowledge and wisdom applicable thereto, Afrika House will help all Afrikan peoples to become conscious of the unfolding Golden Age; its spiritual and social imports and events. It is to inspire the Afrikan-Amerikan Community, especially to begin to substantively and seriously contemplate, envision, anticipate, and prepare itself for the Golden Age so that rather than unprepared and surprised partner, its members can be viable and self-determining partners and co-workers with members of all other races and peoples, in building a harmonious Amerika and world of universal brotherhood and sisterhood of love.
c. The rediscovered “roots” of the Afrikan-Amerikan must now become consciously, voluntarily, and purposefully liberated, dug-in, revivified and re-vitalized with enriching compound of elements of it’s Parents Background. It should be creatively and tenderly tended to and made to manifest as fecund, scientific, and lofty reality in the greening and blossoming of the tree of the Amerikan personality, civilization, and future. The writing on the wall reads that without the timely input of the Afrikan factor, humanity and civilization on this planet is imperiled. That input involves acting as a channel of new and special dispensation of wisdom for a Golden Age of universal fellowship of love. It involves helping to reschedule the souls, now rendered masses by corporealism and anarchism, for the new organical culture and earth-residency of Conscious Cosmic Citizenship.
d. Towards the end of refining, strengthening, and upgrading the quality of social and human initiative and originality of Afrikan-Amerikan view-points and conditions, Afrika House advocates Supplementary and escalated In-House Learning, Teaching, and Demonstrations in addition to current Public Education and Demonstration in addition to current Public Education offerings. Whenever possible, the importation, improvement, and adaptation of Continental Afrikan native items: trades, entertainments, medical, hygiene, and culture; foods, nutriment substances; parenting, and interpersonal homage techniques to constitute possible new and practical sources and resources for gainful occupation and sustaining contribution to Amerikan progress.
e. Afrika House will organize and build the equivalent institution of Seminaries, Universities, primary schools, and Temples of Worship at which Afrikan spiritual, intellectual, corporeal philosophies, beliefs, literature, theologies, high-ethic, and sciences can be researched, tested, learned, and made presentable to the whole world through the whole of Amerikan peoples and culture. Black people inspired with service and devotion to the illumination and upliftment of the race have nowhere to obtain the proper accommodation and training for the realization of their talents and inclinations. The seminaries will be built to provide a training ground for folks who will be, as enduring and harmonizing pillars of pure Light to groom and point the community, should govern all the proceedings and programs of the seminaries. The seminaries are to raise corps of brilliant devotees to the practice of organical wisdom pledged to community and race upliftment. The Universities should introduce simultaneous and integrated material and spiritual learning to the Amerikan Education and culture. The Afrikan background promises wisdom for aptly championing and successful attaining currently impossible visions of universal peace, progress, and happiness.
f. Afrika House is to serve as a forum for unified community emphasis on harmony, enlightenment, responsibility, and amity. It is to serve as a neutral meeting ground for communicating and sharing diverse healthful views and approaches to living that are applicable to up-raising the lowly and up holding the well. In and through the Afrika House program, a new respectability, for the elderly, woman or man, will be re-anchored in the tradition of black-folks through proper community education methods. The resultant respectability will not only be deserved or earned, but it shall not be at the expense of the young. Since by merely ageing, one does not automatically learn the responsibilities of elders towards the young, or towards the community as a whole, the children must, therefore, be taught the responsibilities of being at any stage of ageing in advance of the children growing to be that of the elderly. Afrika House will design and labor to make ageing respectable, creative, and desirable. The elderly person who is unwilling to share his or her care, wisdom, and power with younger persons ought to become retrain able towards devoting the rest of their lives to their community. Their service should consist in teaching and guiding all those who are younger towards a life of mindfulness and usefulness.
g. The fact that Afrikans are aboriginally a mixed people is holy and should not be violated in order to imitate racism in other races. The evolutionary peoples of Afrika are a blend of all the colors of the rainbow. They are the tallest and the shortest blended into an infinitude of heights and colors. Afrika House will act as an inter-ethnic and intra-ethnic locus for entertaining, acknowledging, sharing, and solemnizing multi-racial kinship and heritage: ceremonies, festivities, worship, and marriages in furtherance of universal love and light. At Afrika House, none of the constitutional biological heritage of the people are to be compromised or understated in direct or implied racism.
h. Afrika House is to work to encourage other races, by direct ministry, to experiment with sacred philosophies and renascent organic sciences of the Afrikan people as a means of expanding their material and spiritual cosmogyny towards Conscious Cosmic Citizenship and the realization of the Golden Age. Also, to consciously introduce black communities to more realistic appreciation of the merits in the aspiration for humanity as a whole, of the background ideals and folk-ways of all the other races.
i. To discover, publish, or facilitate the publishing of worthwhile literature of high value to the righteous upliftment of all lowly races with emphasis on Afrikan peoples. To inspire local libraries and museums to acquire, stock, or rent objects of great inspirational value in the black heritage so as to display the same in public places for informal social education.
j. Afrika House Dance and Music Conservatory (Propagatory): This is to be organized by Afrika House and dedicated to sound championing and consolidation, refinement, and propagation of the pre-eminent, sacred, and progressive in the unity of quality, background, purposes, and functions of traditional and emergent Afrikan music and dance with the aim of making them applicable towards the regeneration, harmonization, and progression of the race.
k. Afrika House will organize periodic and sustained campaigns to re-sensitize and re-educate the black community concerning inherent dignity and respect for the earth and for humanity over and above material acquisitions, for family and more especially the women, the elders, and the children; for objective righteousness and for keeping faith in the cause and goal of well being. In the rearing of the young, Afrika House will advocate and teach the early childhood development through integrated, corporeal, spiritual knowledge, and organical ethic under the eye of adept elders.
l. AFRIKA HOUSE NEWS: Afrika House will inspire, organize, and publish Afrika House News as an organ for reflecting progressive ideals, accomplishments, and conditions of Pan-Afrikan heritage of major and relevant Golden Age events issuing from Pan-Afrikan current concerns, aspirations and thoughts. Also, it is to reflect applicable sparks of wisdom issuing from backgrounds other than pan-Afrikan. Precisely, Afrika House News is to serve as an instrument towards a general organic upliftment and education through unbiased in-house ethnic review, through pontification, and sharing of veritable, exalted, and practicable ideals through upholding and continually pointing the folks to the imperatives of constitutional self-knowledge, organical creation-knowledge, and succinct and inherent Creator-Creatress-knowledge. The News will help to inspire, exemplify, and promote the art of selfless and loving service for the enlightenment and upliftment of the race in the interest of the whole world.
m. To maintain lively information, interests, creative concerns, and vigilant assistance to all peoples of Afrikan descent or heritage and in the event of natural and social emergencies to organize the communities, in the Amerikas, to assist the areas, regions, and other ethnic groups who may be victims of wars, hunger, earth-quakes, floods, fires, illiteracy, epidemics, etc. Across the world, as well as in the United States, Afrika House will organize relief against natural calamities in ways and by means, which promote inter-ethnic harmony and goodwill. In order that they might enrich their personal lives and communities with new insights and rewards, Afrika House will encourage Afrikan-Amerikans to seek gainful experiences and employment to include other countries and cultures and especially within the developing communities of continental Afrika.
n. Afrika House will impress upon Afrikan Nations, as well as upon the government of Amerikas, the necessity to liberalize passport and to help to arrange inexpensive transport of millions of Afrikan Amerikans, many of whom are distracted by their great longing to visit the continents of their origin but have been sorely unable to do so owing to poverty, or on account of the ignorance of travel requirements. For instance, if one generation of Afrikan-Amerikan mothers were to tour continental Afrika, the worth of this act will reverberate to improve the attitude of many generations of their children. One can measure the differences in behavior between the children of women and men who have visited Afrika, and those who have not, allowing us discover the “roots” effect. Elementary and High School pupils, even college students, will be greatly profited in character and learning development by properly planned tours of continental Afrika. Furthermore, rather than in just New York, Washington D.C., and San Francisco, Afrikan nations are to be encouraged, or persuaded, to establish consuls, also in cities with heavy Afrikan-Amerikan population, and thereat to express their becoming heritage, in goodwill, beyond the walls of their embassies and occasional protocols.
o. Afrika House will help to receive and entertain dignitaries from other nations who visit the Amerikas. But, more especially, the house is to help Amerikans of Afrikan heritage to develop definite fraternal and maternal policy and hospitality etiquette for receiving and accommodating new immigrants of various backgrounds and heritage. Black Amerika must take initiative in learning to make friends all around this world, and Afrika House can help to provide the needed inspiration and understanding.
p. A-land, fri (ee)- Light, ka- soul.
Thus Afrika means the land of souls of light.
The code of the people is in the name.
Now, Bantu: Ba – original or primordial spirit, as different from soul, which is spirit within form, -ntu- God. Thus the Bantu is a God-like person or people, or human folks of the like of the spirit of goddesses and gods. Amerika-land of merry souls!
The Afrikan peoples are to develop according to their True Name, or according to the formula for their Creator-Creatress bestowals and organic evolutionary consciousness and destiny:
It is an impossibility to develop and express Afrikanity without spiritual and communality. Religions are no substitute for organic and inherent spirituality.
Afrika House stands upon the foundation of ancient Afrikan heritage of Organic Wisdom, the Light of which, teaches that every material human act has its necessary and immediate spiritual counterpart, complement, and accompaniment, or High Desiderata of Organic Ethic, which must be observed in the light of Cosmic Supreme Intelligence to the end of universal harmony.
The Afrikan ideal considers all people to be inherently and unalterable children of the Everywhere-Present Cosmic Supreme Being. Everyone is acknowledged Cosmic Citizen whether or not the one is conscious of the fact. All folks are constitutive members of Cosmic Sovereignty and are called to live their lives as though he or she is oneself living and conscious part of the Creator-Creatress in presence, action, and service for the good of all. Afrika House is Golden Age institution for binging all Afrikan peoples closer together in concerted visions and programs or organical ethnic and world enlightenment and upliftment through the practice of succinct and inherent Cosmic Wisdom.
