"SANKOFA": 'Never To Forget!'
"In Order To Navigate and Understand The Future, One Must First Gain Knowledge Of The Past!"
By
Gregory V. Boulware












/*

~ "The Power of Sankofa" ~
Sankofa is an African word from the Akan tribe in Ghana. The literal translation of the word and the symbol is “it is not taboo to fetch what is at risk of being left behind.”
The word is derived from the words:
SAN (return),
KO (go),
FA (look, seek and take).
"The Sankofa symbolizes the Akan people’s quest for knowledge among the Akan with the implication that the quest is based on critical examination, and intelligent and patient investigation.
The symbol — shown in the photo on an interior window in the Carter G. Woodson Center — is based on a mythical bird with its feet firmly planted forward with its head turned backwards.

Thus, the Akan belief that the past serves as a guide for planning the future... To the Akan it is this wisdom in learning from the past which ensures a strong future.
The Akans believe that there must be movement and new learning as time passes, but as this forward march proceeds, the knowledge of the past must never be forgotten."

~ “Maafa: Life After Conquest” ~
"Is it mere coincidence that the current cop killings of Blacks tied into the Nazi Holocaust and the population control movement? Have the powerful white socialists plan to eradicate Blacks from society proven to be a successful venture in the attempt to exterminate us from the day slavery ended?
Insurrection and Civil Uprising creates one hell of a burden on The white power structure and its Stock Exchange as well as a major financial impact on its “House of Cards”: …not only on the slave trade but exercises population overrun, food shortages, ramped crime and prison overflow, and the biggest dilemma of all – “Intermarriage!”

What shall we do with them? “Return them to Africa” was one idea that went bust. It would cost too much."

In 1844, William Still moved to Philly. He began working as a clerk for the Pa. Anti-Slavery Society. By the 1850s, he was a leader of Philly's African-American Community. In 1859 he attempted to desegregate the city's public transit system. In 1847 he married Letitia George. Their oldest was Caroline Matilda Still, a pioneer female medical doctor. She was married to Reverend Matthew Anderson, pastor of the Berean Presbyterian Church.

~ 'A BEREAN' ~
...Seek a Berean spirit to search the matter out. "Bereans were known to have lived in ancient Greece, in the town of Berea. They were known as ones who “received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether these things are so” – Acts 17:10-11.

...A collection of ideas for the people who seek to know and enjoy more of God's Word. As referenced in the Book of Acts Chapter 17, Verse 11: "These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the Word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so". This enormous compliment and honor is paid to the Bereans - and I use this reference to associate with all those people who place the Word of God above tradition, above rumor, above fiction, above social acceptance, above entertainment, above religious propaganda, above political correctness, and above cultural differences. 2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth. Jeremiah 29:13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. 2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

...An Omitted History!

***In the United States today, the white-power structure continues their attempts to dictate policies and reign in the control of the ‘Black President’ in power. Their position over who gets their support is of course the white-faced power broker of Israel. In direct opposition of established policies for peace and cooperation, the latest chastisement from the GOP pit:
http://blackhistory.com/.../in-light-of-cush-kush-the-dark

"Adam, Sheth, Enosh, Kenan, Mahalalel, Jered, Henoch, Methuselah, Lamech, Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth with all the sons thereafter – The ‘Edomites’ born of the sons of Dishan, Uz, and Aran were the kings that reigned in the land of ‘Edom.’"
http://blackhistory.com/.../in-light-of-cush-kush-the...

"“We continue to believe that a two-state solution is the only way for the long-term security of Israel,” Obama told the Huffington Post Friday. “Given his statements prior to the election, it is going to be hard to find a path where people seriously believe that negotiations are possible.""

Brother Doctor Gregory Boulware I see a little bit farther then I did on just yesterday and this meaning of "SANKOFA": 'Never To Forget," is like a light unto my path of understanding and this phrase rings deeply in my mind, "SANKOFA" to fetch what is at risk of being left behind. WOW!!! just think how many of us today would have a deeper respect and love for one to another if the story and history of are great past was told and remembered to our generation and was handed down to our seed.

Would our youth put that spike in their veins or put that powder up their noses or lift a gun to another just to prove their loyalty to the streets? SANKOFA" to fetch what is at risk of being left behind, this understanding spoke volumes as I kept on reading your words my Brother as we move foreword to the future, we must remember our great past.

Words ring in my mind about who told you that you was STUPID, Who told you that you was IGNORANT, Who tried to disrespect you and I come up with, my very own people who lost SANKOFA" to fetch what is at risk of being left behind. My people that may not no or be conscious of feeding into the Maafa by discouraging and or eliminating our young black minds for the future simply by the power of the word.

Once again Brother Doctor GREAT POST.
