The African Affirmation

Listen Siblings, I come in peace,

“Up, up you mighty race!  You can accomplish what you will!” — Marcus Garvey

At the end of the United African Movement’s meetings (even from the late 80s); the Chairman would lead the membership in reciting the African Affirmation. The Chairman would say a phrase, the membership will repeat that phrase, then the Chairman would continue to the next phrase, and so forth. It’s an incredibly deep Affirmation. Teach your community to recite it.  In addition, help build African Blood Siblings Community Centers.  These can raise the consciousness of your community that we can be loving, knowledgeable and wise.  Write for more information.  Subscribe, share, love.

African Affirmation

We are an African People
Robbed from our Homeland
Robbed of our Names
Our Languages
Our Cultures
Our Religions
Our Womanhood
Our Manhood
Our Sisterhood
Our Brotherhood
Our Motherhood
Our Fatherhood
Our Selfhood
Our Nationhood
And our Self-Respect
But We Shall Rise!
Never to Fall Again!
Up You Mighty Race!
You Can Accomplish What You Will!
No Justice! No Peace!
No Justice! No Peace!
