    DATE: October 2-4, 2003

    Religious Sankofa Crusade 2:
    Alternative Healing Experience

    The Religious Sankofa Crusade 2, Alternative Healing will be held October 2-4, 2003 at the Community Family Life and Recreation Center at Lyon Park (off Morehead and Kent Street), in Durham, North Carolina. The International Board of African Thinkers, Traditional Priests, Healers, and religions, Inc. and Calvary Ministries will bring to Durham, North Carolina, a historic second meeting of some of the world’s greatest thinkers, religious scholars, spiritual and alternative health experts.
    For centuries Western religions have characterized African spiritual systems as “pagan” or heathen” or “witchcraft “ or “devil worship”. When one realizes the enormous debt the European western religions owe to their African predecessors, words such as "pagan" or "heathen" or “witchcraft” become diabolically sinister.
    All in one location, the following religions will be presented and discussed by experts: Ancient African Egyptian, African Traditional religions (i.e., Abosom, Orisha, Vodou, Zulu), Hebrew/Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.
    You will learn more of WHAT you believe, and WHY you believe what you do. If you are a Christian, Muslim, Hebrew, or PtahRa (African traditional religion), come to this historic crusade to see, hear, and meet the authors and healers.
    In addition to other presenters, many of the following Board members will also be present:

    General Session Keynote Speakers


    Pastor Frederick Davis, First Calvary Baptist Church

    The God described in the Bible is none other than the God who is already known in the framework of our traditional African religiosity. The missionaries who introduced the gospel to Africa in the past 200 years did not bring God to our continent. Instead, God brought them. They proclaimed the name of Jesus Christ. But they changed the names of the God who was and is already known by African peoples -- such as Mungu, Mulungu, Katonda, Ngai, Olodumare, Nyame, Ruhanga, Jok, Modimo, Unkulunkulu and thousands more. These are not empty names. They are names of one and the same God, the Creator of the world, the father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Many African theologians even argued that the concept of God, which the missionaries presented to our enslaved ancestors, was a devaluation of the traditional currency of God and religion already known by African peoples.

    Pastor Frederick Davis, African Cultural Pastor of First Calvary Baptist Church. He works for the revitalization in the West End area and other communities in Durham.

    HIP HOP VS. SPIRITY (Who Stole the Soul).

    Min. Paul Scott of the Messianic Afrikan Nation.

    He has debated the top white right wing conservatives in this country on national television and radio, including one of the leaders of shock radio (Mancow), Sean Hannity on Fox News, and a brief encounter with Bill O’Reilly. He has taken stands on many controversial issues. He is a Hip Hop syndicated columnist


    Dr. Kwabena Faheem Ashanti, PtahRahene, Okomfo

    The issue of homosexuality in the Black community is addressed in ways resonant with African culture, life and religion. The historical context behind what appear to be so-called homophobic attitudes among Africans is rarely deconstructed or considered. The black Same-Gender-Loving movement has inspired dialog on the diverse ways [in African religion and cultures] of “loving” in the black community. Learn the historic relationships of homosexuality, lesbianism, and bisexuality to PthaRa (Kemetic, Abosom, Orisa, Vodou, Zulu, etc.).

    Dr. Kwabena Faheem Ashanti, PtahRahene, Okomfo
    The co-founder and president of the International Board of African Thinkers, Traditional Priests, Healers, and religions, Inc. Author of 21 books, i.e., (Psychotechnology of Brainwashing: Crucifying Willie Lynch; Rootwork and Voodoo In Mental health).

    The co-founder and vice-president of the International Board of African Thinkers, Traditional Priests, Healers, and religions, Inc. He is the author of 3 books and does lectures and workshops in 70 topics. His book, AFRICAN HOLISTIC HEALTH is a masterpiece.


    Kwesi Ra Nehem Ptah Akhan, Comparative Theological Scholar

    Learn the origin of Creation, the name Africa, the function of the original Goddesses and Gods, the origins of Abraham, Isaac, Mary, Jesus, Allah, Muhammad, Solomon, Sheba, Buddha, Christianity, the Bible, the Koran, the Torah, Hinduism, the Vedas, and the future of empowerment.

    Dr. K. Kia Bunseki FU-KIAU, Congo Mbongi

    Dr. K. Kia Bunseki FU-KIAU, from the Congo, Central Africa, is one of the world’s most distinguished scholars and priests.


    Medahochi Kofi Zannu, Vodou Honon (Priest)

    To a great degree, we owe the thought of bringing the New African approach to African spirituality to the great elder Medahochi Kofi Omowale Zannu who was actually one of the original members of the Provisional Government of the Republic of New Afrika. It was Medahochi Kofi Omowale Zannu that decided to take our spirituality not only from the ancient level of being, but to interpret it in the context in which we are living. We seek to rid ourselves of the conditionings and trappings brought about from Western religious miseducation.

Tai Chi is normally associated with the slow, graceful movements seen performed in parks early in the morning. Its form is a series of carefully coordinated movements, flowing together like a river. These movements are derived from the movements of animals and follow a natural, relaxed pattern. Tai Chi helps to increase the body awareness.

    Located in Durham, Historic Stagville comprises the remnants of one of the largest plantations of the pre-Civil War South. The plantation belonged to the
    Bennehan-Cameron family, whose combined holdings totaled approximately 900 slaves and almost 30,000 acres by 1860. Stagville offers a view of the past, especially that of its African American community, by allowing visitors to guide themselves around its extensive grounds. In addition, Stagville offers the public many learning opportunities.
    The African enslaved peoples who were brought to America, and whose descendants labored at Stagville, were generally of West African origin. They generally came from agrarian societies including the Ibo, Ewe, Biafada, Bokongo, Wolof, Bambara, and Werer peoples.

    Awotunde ... Welcome. I'm sure SpiritualONE did not mean to overlook the fact that any of the above belongs to you. Usually events such as this are encouraged to be shared. Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

    Can you tell me which part of the above belongs to you? I did visit your site but couldn't find specifically what you are speaking about. If you tell me, i'll remove it. We try very hard not to disrespect that which belongs to our Sister or Brother.

    Please let me know.

    Thank You.
