African People – You Have NO  Friends

There comes a time when we must stop looking back and look forward.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of Enki – M.Williamson

For too long African people (on the continent and of the diaspora) have trusted in the wrong people!

In this powerful video, Dr. John Henrik Clarke articulates the core of the issue that faces people of African descent; here in the United States and globally.

Open your mind and heart as you watch this video.

While he was teaching at Hunter College in New York and at Cornell University in the 1980’s, Dr. Clarke’s lesson plans became well known for their thoroughness. They are so filled with references and details that the Schomburg Library in Harlem asked for copies.

Clarke provided them and said, “so that 50 years from now, when people have a hard time locating my grave, they won’t have a hard time locating my lessons.”

In 1985, the year of his retirement, the newest branch of the Cornell University Library- a 60 seat, 9,000 volume facility- was named the “John Henrik Clarke Africana Library.”

“History is not everything” Clarke once wrote, “but it is the starting point. History is a clock that people use to tell their time of day. It is a compass they use to find themselves on the map of human geography. It tells them where they are, but more importantly, what they must be.”

    Have not watched the vid yet but just responding to the John Henrik Clarke – You Have No Friends – we are to have no friends that is what we are taught as Children in Nigeria. Alas now too many Nigerians trust the whitey more than their own selves! We follow Jesus in our households if a person any colour does not follow Him we are not to trust them, even in the church — you disregard them but still give them food n drink etc..will watch shortly


      Sadly we have lost all perception of our own culture/religion/heritage; possibly one of the few classically African knowledge. How do we return? How do we retrace lost footsteps we have learned to foolishly abandon and mistrust?

      A shadow of our past glory indeed.
