Seminars spring from African author’s book
Teachings on the roots of Black heritage
PALMDALE, Calif.—African scholar Kwadwo Obeng, author of the book “We Are All Africans,” is now teaching classes on the African roots of civilization and Black culture. Obeng is seeking people of African descent to join him in the free course of study.
“The seminars will be based on the book, which includes the teaching of the origin of humanity. I will be going into African cosmology, our history, culture, religion, all the way to our existence as homo sapiens. I will cover over 200,000 years,” Obeng said.
The lessons also will cover the study of religious holy books: the Torah, the Bible and the Qur’an.
“We will talk about these books and how they have been used to undermine our humanity and suppressed and caused us to question our humanity, as well as how dehumanizing of Africans have caused us to have low self-esteem,” the A.V. resident said.
The researcher believes he has discovered the truth about African oppression and the source of its continuous growth.
Growing up, Obeng questioned religion and recognized the oppression of African culture. So with an awakened sense of curiosity, he decided to write the book.
Obeng said he now he has a following in different parts of the world. He believes that through the information he’s compiled and is now teaching, solutions for the overall Pan-African community can be discussed and implemented.
“The mission is to get us to come together as a people and help ourselves. We are the only ones who can do it. It is not in their interest to unite other people. So we can really get to know who we are so we can appreciate each other and work together.”
The seminars are broadcast live online at weareallafricans.com. Those interested in attending the seminars may attend on Saturdays at 6 p.m. at the Africa House at 4284 La Salle Ave., Los Angeles.
