    The Alaashe provide examples of right living as handed down ny Yoruba egun

    1). Ifarabale: composure

    2). Owo: respect

    3). Suturu: patience

    4). Eso: caution

    5). Imo: knowledge

    6). Ogbon: wisdom

    7). Oye: understanding

    There are 13 guidlines for self-development

    1) There is to be no practice of wickedness. Those who sow the seeds of wickedness plant them upon their children. Ashes fly back in to the faces of he who throws them.

    2).There is to be no stealing. Even if man does not see; Oludumare sees

    3). There is to be no selfishness. Those who are selfish will come to bare their loads alone

    4). There is to be no covenant breaking or falshood. The covenabt breakers will be carried away by the earth. The sacrifices of covenant breakers and liars are not accepted

    5) There is to be no hypocrisy

    6) There is to be no acts of atrocity to be committed against one's neighbor

    7).There is to be honor and respect to the elders. The relationship of service between elders and youth is to be strengthened continuously. The hand of the young does not reach the high shelf. That of the elder does not go into the gourd

    8). There is to be protection of the women. Women are the flowers of the garden, men are the fence around them

    9). There is to be truthfulness and uprighteousness. Those who are fruitful and upright have the blessings of the divinities

    10). There is to be kindness and generosity. Kindness begets kindness

    11). There is to be sensitivity with respect to person to person relationships

    12). There Is to be chastity in respect to mates. Man, do not seduce another man's wife; woman do not seduce another woman's husband

    13) There is to be hospitable directives



    My thanks to brother Sekhemu for providing this

    had we followed or been allowed to follow these ideologies and foundations as well as the Nguzo Saba, we would be free from psychological and economic slavery

    We still have time to re-establish these African pradigms in our African American households, and communities

    now when you say "afrocentricity" are you speaking of the afrocentric movement within academia?

    No I am speaking about the cultural revolution during the 70s which was not a teen cutlure thing like hip hop but like hip hop it embraced alll levels of cuture;
    The Poets; Imamu Baraka, Sonia Sanchez, Haki Matibhuti
    The Grandfathers of rap; the Last poets, Imhotep Gary Byrd
    Clothing; New Breed inc. (national)
    music; Pharoah Sanders, Mariam Makeba, Olotunji, Archie Shepp,
    Roy Ayers, Sun Ra
    Activists; Herman Furgeson, The Republic of New Africa
    Abubadika; Sonny Carson

    Dr Ben Jochanan
    C L R James
    Franz Fanon
    Chancelor Williams
    Kanya Vashon McGee
    Dr Nathan Hare

    the culture was strategicaly leaning away from the ghetto induced culture put upon us by white supremacy, and reembrace African culure, and Classical African centered folkways, and attitudes.

    According to Chancelor Williams it was set upon by the introduction of strategicaly infused cheep drugs of a high quality, into the Black community, after which came the platform shoe wearing, jerry curl, piimp and player culure of the "do your own thing" disco era, were as many here can recall, had brocken up many families and wreaked havoc on the Black community

    Chuck:

    I don't recall anybody who advanced their agendas via those principles...

    But...

    I also was a supporter of Newton/The Panthers...

    Not Ron Karenga..

    Etc.

    Then, too, how relevant is any of this, when it comes to the hip hop/gangsta rap devotees etc.

    Once you're able and willing to answer that question:

    Then you can and will advance the best interests of your generation(s)...

    Good luck!

    Take care...

    Peace...
