    I'd love to go see the man.

    For decades he has fought the good fight.
    He, through academics and scholarship,
    maybe even more, has fought for the liberation
    of afrikan people home and abroad.

    When his time comes, it will be well deserved
    and well earned.

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention jamesfrmphilly.

    One of our greatest historians getting his well deserved final rest! I just called and couldn't get through to the nursing home. It must be too late. I'll try again tomorrow. Please post the funeral arrangements if you get them. I have to make this Homegoing Celebration. I won't be able too sleep at night if I don't.

    He will never be "dead"!!!!! I'd heard last year that he was near his transition. At 90+ commonsense dictates that it won't be long.

    Message from Dr. Leonard Jeffries:

    "Ago, Ago, Ago - Dr. Ben's Daughters Ruth and Naiomi Johannes have messaged to us that Our Great Giant - Dr. Yosef Ben Jochannan is an Ancestor. Our People are now safeguarded from the After-Life by Dr. Ben, Dr. Clarke, Dr. Diop, Minister Malcolm X, Elijah, The Honorable Marcus Garvey, The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, Dr. Diop, and many more of our Greats.Though Painful this is a Victory, that we had him for 97 plus years. We will be raising monies to make his Celebration Eloquent and we will message this and the arrangements."
